Best Active Boy Shorts

Why people love it
  • A great pair of full-coverage boy shorts perfect for runners and resistance trainees
  • The legs don't roll up, and the top doesn't roll down
  • Comfortable and reliable; warm base layer beneath active pants

Extra long inseam, reduces chafing, good elasticity, offers freedom of movement, great for active and daily use, good fit, no sheerness/transparency, and moisture-wicking.

Sizes run large and these underwear are not made of the most durable material.


Materials: These shorts are made of 85% nylon, 12% Spandex, and 3% cotton—a blend that is soft, comfortable, and fairly durable. Some users have complained that the shorts split at the seam, making them unsuitable for outerwear. However, as boy short underwear, they're a good option for active use thanks to their moisture-wicking, quick-drying fabric.

Fit: The shorts have a full rise, offering total coverage. The sizes run a bit large, but once you find the right fit, they'll stay firmly in place—no bunching or drooping. The cotton gusset helps to reduce chafing while you run, lift, or train.

Perfect For: Runners, athletes, weightlifters. The triangle-back construction offers good freedom of movement for athletes, runners, and resistance trainees, and the underwear are warm enough that they make a suitable base layer beneath leggings in cold weather.

Price: At $15, these are slightly on the pricier side. However, given their versatility (perfect for active and everyday use), they're a good pair of underwear to have for work and gym sessions.
