Under Armour is well known for this activewear. Anybody going to training would most likely own something from this brand. Products manufactured by Under Armour include athletic shoes, t-shirts, jackets, hoodies, pants, leggings, shorts and accessories such as bags, gloves, caps and protective gear. I’ve reviewed a bunch of products from Under Armour since I’ve been wearing them a lot to the gym.  How do these Recover Shorts square off?  I will also be reviewing the Recover Tee shortly after.  You will see them in one of the photos.



These recover shorts don’t have much style to them and I wouldn’t say they look nice.  There is an Under Armour logo on the left side near the left pocket. There is a faux fly that can not be used.  The faux fly is done by stitching a fly shape so that it makes it look like there is a fly.



These recover shorts are not bagging at all. You can consider them as fitted – I believe Under Armour says they are next to skin without the squeeze. The fabric is stretchy and doesn’t prevent you from any movement, just like their activewear. The 10″ inseam is not too long nor too short – it’s perfect in every moment at home.



These recover shorts are made with 75% Polyester, 19% Modal and 6% Elastane.  You can see that the material is a mix between shorts and underwear. Modal and Elastane is commonly used for stretch and breathable underwear.  Overall these shorts are well made and I have no complaints.  The inseams is 10 inches so it’s not short at all.  The waistband is 2 inches, wrapped with fabric and quite thick.


Our Views:

The pattern inside these shorts returns infrared energy to your body, boosting localized blood flow and upping the amount of oxygen reaching your muscles to restore your muscles faster.  This is one of the selling points of this pair of shorts and the whole Recovery lineup.  I have no real way to prove if these work or not; however, I have been wearing them after a workout and could say that the next day I don’t feel the muscle pain. But then it could mean that I didn’t work hard enough.

Recovery tech
I am a bit confused with this infrared energy technology because I’m not sure if I should be wearing underwear under these or should I be going commando. If this is supposed to return energy to my body, shouldn’t less layers the better? If anybody knows the answer, please send me an email.

I’ve worn these to sleep and they are very comfortable. They didn’t make me feel that it was too hot.  Sounds like they are great; however, the fabric is not as soft as the BN3TH Relax that I’ve recently reviewed.

These shorts do not have drawstrings, but they do hold quite well. With the same items placed in my pockets when I reviewed the BN3TH Relax shorts, these shorts did not stretch down and stayed around my waist. One downfall of these shorts is the 2″ waistband folds and doesn’t keep shape.

These shorts need to be wash without fabric softener, or even softener sheets.  They should just be washed and hang dry.  Like a lot of Under Armour clothing,  fabric softener will breakdown the sweat wicking properties and it will just become a normal pair of shorts.



Will I buy again: Yes.  If they are on sale. They are not cheap at all.
