Overall the shorts are perfectly good, and do the job - but i feel the protective side-pads are pretty unnecessary. They may look pretty good, but through the lycra material they actually feel quite odd on the skin, and in the past my similar shorts have never been particularly damaged while slide-tackling etc. They're not great to wear with boxers, but with good old y-fronts they're fine - they're most comfortable going commando (but the front mesh is somewhat see through, so beware). I'm also not a fan of the 'pro combat' label on the waist band, which i thought was a bit... 'dramatic', but I'm sure no-one cares. At the end of the day, they'll do - but in hindsight i'd have preferred a pair without the side-pads; more comfortable, while saving a few quid in the process.

If you work out a lot, these are brilliant. No chaffing, they're extremely comfortable and don't slide up your thighs like the cheap(er) versions. I'd highly recommend these! Not sure what the rubber design is meant to do but that's another issue!
