My second pair of Manview underwear for review was the Craven Jockstrap in red.  After a positive experience with a pair of briefs last week by Manview, I was anxious to give these a shot.  My first impression was that the fabric felt fantastic. andI liked the modern “fashion” styling rather than a classic jockstrap.  Jocks are not my favorite generally. So I was pleasantly surprised when these ended up being my favorite pair for review yet!

I decided to wear these on a run rather than as underwear since that’s how I typically use a jock.  I think these could easily be worn as daily underwear or for lounging around the house if that’s your style.  It seems that many jocks now are made for fun/play rather than to hold up and be supportive during exercise. So I was really gonna test these!

As a 31-32 waist, these mediums fit just right so I would say they are true to size.  Their chart says 30-32.  The pouch is 85% nylon and 15% spandex so there was plenty of stretch. It hugged everything nicely – both visually and for support.

When pulled these on, the thing I liked most was the fabric – being really soft and supportive.  The bright red color was great. Along with the contrast stitching and elastic around the pouch.  The back straps staying in place during a 4 mile walk/run with very little adjustment needed.  They actually held up as a jock!  I am not a huge fan of classic straps with the really wide waistband and basic elastic straps that scratch a bit.  These were a great modern take that also did their job and I have to say, made me look pretty good through my shorts.   🙂

One change I would make (and it is small) is that the front panel. It is a bit wide at the top and the navy blue elastic rolled under almost immediately.  It didn’t change the comfort level, but it is a nice design feature that got lost.
