Hello all, I am back for part 2 of my 3 part review of the N2N Bodywear active wear. I know that I called it workout gear in the last review, but based on the items in part 2, I am going to switch to active wear. The reason being is that some of us out there would love to wear this type of clothing to the gym and most of us can’t pull it off. Why can’t we pull it off? Well, because it’s a bit more reveling than those of us who are body-conscience would like it to be. Mesh will do that. Love it…but be mindful!
The two shorts I am reviewing are the Sports Mesh Long Shorts and the Retro Split Mesh Shorts. I have sported both pairs around the house and I wore the long shorts out one night to pick a friend up from the airport. Realize that I never got out of the car when I wore them out. Being a jockstrap guy, it would have been a bit too much for public eyes to see.
The Sports Mesh Long Shorts are comfortable and very breathable. Obviously, if they are somewhat see through, they are going to be very breathable. I received a size large to review and they fit well. They have a drawstring waist so I was able to cinch them up if I wanted to. They have small front pockets that are nice but since they are not too deep, you can’t do much with them. Then again, for me personally, I would not be wearing them out of the house, making them great for lounging around at home, especially if you are like me and are comfortable being naked. These shorts give you some coverage but still allow you to feel exposed. I like that. The mesh material is comfortable and feels great against the skin. I felt great sporting them commando.
The next pair of shorts is a bit more on the skimpy and revealing side of things. And yes, that is a tall order since we are already talking about mesh shorts. This pair is the Retro Split Mesh Shorts. They are designed off of the classic idea of running shorts with the high cut of the sides for freedom of movement. You know, the very short, short look. The material is the same as the long mesh shorts, so they are comfortable and easily worn commando. There is one more very interesting aspect to these shorts, that in my opinion, makes them a pair you actually have to wear commando or with just a thong or jock. They have a built-in pouch for your package to be cradled. So I can tell you, it is very interested. Furthermore, the pouch is detachable. It attaches via several snaps.
In conclusion, the N2N Sports Mesh Long Shorts and the Retro Split Mesh Shorts are unique active wear items I feel are better for lounging around the house or out at a friend’s place where you feel comfortable sporting mesh shorts. I give it an overall rating of 4.2 on a scale of 5.

Keep a lookout for the 3rd part to the N2N Bodywear workout clothes review. The next one will be about the N2N singlet. Not really something that can be worn at the gym while working out, but there is an interesting party here in DC that I attended the other day where a singlet is almost required. I will let you know how it wears.
