Welcome to my first sportswear review on UNB! I recently had the opportunity to try the JOR Action Shorts, and I am impressed.
I will admit my bias going into this review. I have been a fan of JOR tights for a few years now so the shorts are just a shorter version of something I already love. That said, they aren’t perfect, but they are quality.
While definitely comfortable, you’re going to sweat your balls off in these, literally. The polyester fabric doesn’t breathe a ton and may not be for everyone, but I don’t mind that.
These shorts also are somewhere between short and compression short. Meaning they are certainly tighter than your average short, but not as tight as I find most compression shorts. The only semi-annoying part was the elastic at the bottom of the shorts did feel a bit tight around my thighs.
These really win when it comes to styling. The JOR Action Shorts have a fun, wild pattern to help spice up typical boring gymwear. These aren’t meant to be hidden under a pair of baggy shorts, show these off! Much like JOR tights, these shorts do a great job of showing off the butt, so all those squats won’t go unnoticed.
Speaking of squats, an important element for me when it comes to sportswear is what I call the Squat Test. Can I squat at the gym without the shorts riding down? The answer for these is YES! These will definitely work well for leg day, or any day at the gym.
Overall, I’m a fan. They are an investment, but high quality. If you like tight shorts, consider adding these to your collection.
