Product Summary

The Nike Pro Dri-FIT short is a compression base layer short for your workouts. Nike states that these are made with lightweight stretchy fabric to keep you cool and dry during your workouts.

The Pro Dri-FIT shorts are made with at least 75% recycled polyester, and they have an elastic waistband for comfort. They also feature mesh at inseam and upper seat to help keep you cool. The seams are also flat for improved comfort.

The Pro Dri-FIT shorts have mixed reviews. Many reviewers found them comfortable with a great fit and a waistband that stays in place. Users shared that they were able to complete their workouts without having to adjust their shorts.

People did find the tag at the back of the waistband to be scratchy. Some users felt that the older Nike compression base layers provided more compression and were more durable. Some also felt that the shorts got wet during their workout and stayed wet. Few users also experienced the waistbands rolling down.
