Amazon is offering two similar training shorts: this one, the Amazon Essentials Men's Tech Stretch Training Short, and there's the Amazon Essentials Men's Soft-tech 9" Training Short. I have both and I like them both, but I prefer the Soft-tech shorts, which cost $4 more as of the writing of this review. Here are the main points of comparison:

• The Soft-tech shorts have a thicker, heavier fabric which is very soft to the touch. These Tech Stretch shorts are soft too but they are made of thin, lightweight fabric.

• The Soft-tech shorts have a rounded drawstring, whereas these Tech Stretch shorts have a flat drawstring. I prefer the rounded. The end caps are more sturdy on the rounded string.

• The Soft-tech short pockets are made with the same fabric as the rest of the shorts. The Tech Stretch short pockets are all mesh.

• These Tech Stretch shorts have breathable mesh paneling on the sides and upper back of the shorts. So, they are probably better for warmer weather than the Soft-tech shorts which do not have any mesh paneling.

• The stitching on the Soft-tech shorts is hidden, whereas on these Tech Stretch shorts it is visible.

• The Tech Stretch shorts are 92% polyester, 8% elastane (with 100% polyester mesh). The Soft-tech shorts are 70% polyester, 23% viscose, 7% elastane.

Both shorts are the same size and length. The Soft-tech shorts are perhaps better for cooler weather. I prefer the Soft-tech shorts because they feel a little more substantial and perhaps made with more attention to detail, but both are great shorts and I'd recommend them both. Both are a great value.

I like these a lot! I'm a woman but recently took to wearing mens shorts to the gyms. They are much more practical and more comfortable. These are flattering, unexpectedly soft, and have a nice close fit. Good pockets. I'm 5'8 155lbs, 28in waist 41in hips and I got a small, which fits pretty snug. I could've gone with a medium for a looser fit.

Was disappointed when I first looked at this shorts, looked a little dull and flimsy.
Fit isn't that great and comfort level is just about ok. For the price you pay, there are much better shorts that are available.
Would have liked it to be a little longer and made of better quality.
Overall not very impressed with this shorts.

I am slim to thin, and most shorts look like skirts on me (flaring out) -- never figured out why they cut the cloth to produce a flare all the way to the hem. This pair of shorts just drops down along the leg. Not that there is no flare, but it is much less than others. They could still improve it a little by narrowing the leg a bit as you get near the bottom of the short, but I suppose they want the same shorts to fit the not-so-slim Jims out there. So I will have to make do with this. I would still buy it.

I bought these for my teen son. He's a bit in-between youth and adult sizes, thought xs worked great. Youth athletic shorts all seem to be very thin material and a bit clingy.
I took a gamble based off the photos for these shorts. They really do fit like the photo, and my son says they're very comfortable. I subsequently bought three more pair in different colors since he only wears non-athletic shorts in dire circumstances. ;) They have some substance without feeling heavy.

I bought one each of the Tech Stretch and Soft Tech training shorts and to me they are very similar except for the colors. Both are soft and stretchy and both are more of a medium weight. I have some lighter weight Adidas and Puma shorts that are nicer, but also cost at least twice was much. Like the Soft Tech I find these run a bit larger than expected although fine. I always buy Large shorts and I'm chubby enough that I don't need to tie them at the waist, but with these I tied them to be safe. I am trying to lose 10-15 lbs so I'll definitely need to cinch them up then. Overall the Amazon Essentials workout clothes are a good buy I think. I like my UA, Puma and Adidas stuff better, but it costs a lot more. Another brand to watch is Dick's DSG clothing. I think it's nicer than Amazon Essentials and when they put it on sale it's a bargain.

These shorts are some of the most comfortable and stretchy ones I've worn to a workout. They material is breathable and moisture-wicking.

Sizing is off though. I'm 5'11, 180 lbs, waist 31", and usually wear a Medium in all my shorts/pants/etc., but the Medium was way too big on me. Ordered a Small and that fit me perfectly.

Docking 1 star for the sizing issue, otherwise it's excellent article of clothing.

Great pair of shorts at a great price. Fit is comfortable for around the house. A little too sheer for me to wear outside- I prefer something a little thicker. But would definitely wear indoors, yard etc. Fabric is sheer and thin which is great for hot weather, but not for fall. My waist is size 44 and i like a loose fit, so I was concerned these 2XL would be too tight, but not so, are large enough and comfortable. Pockets not very deep, would have preferred a little deeper to keep cell phone from falling out, ect. But overall a great buy at a great price.

Good for the price but you get what you pay for. Very thin materiel. Nearly See-through.

tres confortable ! j'adore

Vraiment satisfait un blanc éclatant
