Whether you’re running and jumping or shooting and passing, these Nike® Men’s Pro Tights keep you performance-ready. The allover compression fit delivers premium support, while Dri-FIT technology pulls moisture away from your skin. Flat seams feel smooth against your skin while reducing distractions and enhancing your focus. Feel supported and covered in these Pro tights.
The styling of these tights are very similar to the Pro Combat version. The stitching seams does is where the biggest differences between Pro Combat and Pro version. Considering this as a baselayer, many people will not wear them by itself and most men will have a loose pair of shorts on top of them. However, Nike still did some work on the waistband adding a patch to cover up the waistband stitching to ensure it looks clean – this is also the same on the Pro Combat. The stitching throughout this pair of tights is the same color as the tights inside. Overall these tights look good by just wearing them by itself, however, the gray color does make things showy. The signature Nike logo in black is added to the left thigh logo.
The fit is even tighter than the Pro Combat – much tighter than the Under Armour I reviewed last week and a tad more tighter than the Nike Pro Combat. However, it’s still comfortable and it does hugs my package and body very well. They are a tad heavier than the Nike Combat Pro ones, but it may not be that noticeable. Most will need to wear these pointing down because the pouch area is not very large – I consider myself an average man at flaccid state, but you can see that there is not much room to store your boys.
The fabric uses Nike’s Dri-FIT technology which is made up of 90% Polyester and 10% elastane which is different material to the combat pro. Dri-FIT is designed to keep the sweat away from your body and keep you feeling dry and comfortable. The pouch/gusset area is made with two layers of Dri-FIT fabric (89% polyester and 11% spandex), which is different from the combat pro. Like the Combat Pro, I don’t think the waistband is as sturdy as Under Armour’s waistband. The waistband is also not as soft as the Combat Pro. I would consider the waistband as acceptable band.
During writing this review, CoVid-19 isolation has closed all gyms, so we can only workout at home. As like the Combat Pro tights, I enjoy not needing to wear shorts over these when working out. Just need to figure out can I go back when this is all over 😂. These shorts are tight and the legs do not ride up or pinch in any shape or form. They do not constrain me from doing any activity. As noted before wearing these with your boys pointing down is the best way; however, the gusset area could be bigger or have more stretch to allow a larger range of packages. If not, larger packages will feel pressure down there since u can’t point them up and or sideways. Going sideways will defeat the purpose of the 2 layer pouch design. The mesh gusset area starts about an inch under the waistband and it’s different with the Combat Pro. However, the mesh layer ends in the perineal area – unlike the Combat Pro ends at the butt crack. There is extra stitching in the lower gusset area to help support your bulge. This extra stitching does not exist in the Combat Pro. Overall the stitching areas are different in the two pairs. From the back, there is a straight stitch from the waistband all the way down to the perineal area (where the pouch ends) and two side stitches from the waistband down to the leg stitch. There is a lot more stitching in these pros in comparison to the Compact Pro. The support stitches are much different and I think that is the difference between the two collections from Nike.
These compression tights are considered an mid-level product and there are better tights available on the market. Definitely higher price point tights will work better and possibility give you a better support, recovery and muscle encouragement. However you need to debate on value vs effectiveness – I would say these are good. Same as the Combat Pro shorts, if they can alter the design to better support our packages (different sizes), I will be much happier. Will I buy again: YES.
