Optimum Men's Auckland Rugby Short - White, 44 Inch
Optimum Men's Auckland Rugby Short - White, 44 Inch
Price: 10.99

4.0 out of 5 stars optimum wear, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These Shorts are comfortable ,but a little on the "heavy side".In the recent warm Weather the material felt a bit too thick for comfort. They really are a rugby short and obviously will be quite acceptable to wear when the Weather is cooler ,and indeed damper.To me ,the legs felt a little bit too long and were inclined to rub on my thighs ,there wasn't the degree of freedom I would have liked . They are strongly made and I do not think that they will tear easily.. In future I think I would stick to the classic Canterbury Brand, and for general hot weather wear for relaxation or activity go for the lighter weight roomier Gilbert make. Nowadays the leg lengh of all makes seems that little bit longer,a sign of the times I suppose ,however if you do have more muscular thighs then there is a tendency for your movement to be a bit restricted.

3.0 out of 5 stars A REASONABLE JOCK, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
yOU ALWAYS HAVE TO TRY SOMETHING FIRST,AND I AM SORRY TO SAY THIS ITEM DID NOT MEET UP TO MY EXPECTATIONS. THE OTHER ONE I BOUGHT RECENTLY WAS SUPERB ,BOTH IN QUALITY AND FIT ,AND IT WAS A TRADITIONAL JOCK STRAP. i COULD NOT FAULT IT IN ANY WAY. tHIS ONE "THE SHOW IT BRIEF" HAS THE POUCH AT THE FRONT ,TO PUT YOUR PARTS IN ,AND I FIND THIS NOT VERY COMFORTABLE. SORRY TO SAY PERSONALLY I CAN NOT RECCOMEND IT ,HOWEVER THERE MAY BE SOME OUT THERE WHO WOULD BE QUITE HAPPY TO,ESPECIALLY BOYS OR YOUNGER LEANER MEN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really a Super Jock, 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This article is of excellent quality,the best jock strap I have purchased for years! I used to be able to get a Calvin Kline Make a few Years ago ,but have not seen one about for some time. I chose white colour as it is less likely to show through light coloured materials ,like shorts. it is very comfortable to wear and gives good support ,ideal to wear under shorts for leisure or sporting activities,like football,rugby ,tennis ,for example. The jock could also be worn as underwear regarding jeans or slacks ,it really would not be visible even under tight fitting ones ,and would not show, if worn ,above the waist like some briefs do. I am surprised that more young people do not make use of such a garment ,especially in the warm weather we have experienced of late.

5.0 out of 5 stars CANTERBERRY CLASSIC, 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed wearing these Shorts recently on Holiday in Jersey Channel Isles. They are lightweight ,comfortable to wear,and had no restriction on leg movement when walking around ,really too good to be considered an ordinary Rugby Short.The Shorts do not have a lining ,however you can wear a slip or brief underneath them, I would recommend white though,otherwise any coloured article or indeed black will show through! They really were comfortable to wear,and far more so than a Gilbert make I also bought recently ,which were tighter fitting. If in fact you consider wearing these for a Rugby Match,probably on a warm ,sunny day you will find them perfect,however on a wet cold day ,i think you would prefer kit which was a bit thicker.

4.0 out of 5 stars invest in a vest!, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item arrived within the stated time ,packaging was not excessive ,so little to throw away or recycle. Comfortable to wear ,perhaps more so as "outerwear" ,a bit clinging to wear under a shirt ,where movement would be restricted. If i should purchase again I would go for a larger size to allow more freedom of movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars gilbert boks shorts, 25 July 2013
I liked the look of these from the on-line pictures of them. the shorts are of excellent quality of light comfortable material ,ideal to wear as a Leisure Short in the recent warm Weather. I am not sure if they would last well in winter conditions ,especially if very wet ,as the light material may be affected by mud ,in a competitive match they might be subject to being torn? In warmer conditions ,and also drier ones ,I think they would be ideal to wear, they do not have an inner liner, so light briefs ,of a white or light colour could be worn, darker colours like black would show through.Another option could be the use of a jock strap. The Leg length is ideal ,it allows great freedom of movement ,and does not hinder running speed,as the material is light, it easily allows movement up and down the thighsof the wearer, in all a very well made ,comfortable short.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shorts arrived in good time ,several days ago in fact., 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Shorts are of a fairly heavy material,so would function well in winter weather ,and would not likely tear easily.Actual leg length is about right ,and allows good movement . When wearing them,they fit quite tightly around the rear, a light cotton underbrief would be suitable to wear ,or indeed a jock strap,although the latter does not seem so popular these days. In all the shorts are well made.
