Materials

Materials

The Under Armour Speedpocket shorts are made out of 100% polyester, which is the norm when it comes to products like these. They are soft to the feel, so you are comfortable throughout your works out, but they will not soak up your sweat like cotton will, trapping in the moisture and causing discomfort. Additionally, they do have hand pockets that are lined with a mesh material to help keep them well-ventilated and comfortable. They do not have a liner which sets them apart from some other similar products on the market. If you are looking for something with a brief liner, then these are not going to be the right option for you.

The Under Armour's are going to provide you with a decent amount of breathability for great airflow to help keep you fresh and comfortable throughout the day.

They might not be the most ventilated shorts on the market, but they do an adequate job and customers have no complaints in this department. In order to aid in the airflow, these shorts feature mesh panels on the sides to increase the amount of air that is getting into them and keeping you cool and comfy.

Not only is the airflow going to work to keep you dry throughout your day, but the moisture wicking materials will help. The sweat will hit your shorts and bead up, allowing it to roll right off the materials and evaporate quickly. If they do get wet, they are quick drying, so you can be sure to stay as dry as possible throughout your exercise regime.
