WOD shorts

I think I've narrowed it down to 2pood Maverick P1 or the Forged Amphibian but I'd like to hear some reviews from anyone that already has them. How is the ROM and length? Do they fit well with larger legged folks?

I don't have the Amphibian's but their standard WOD shorts. VERY solid short. Construction, durabilitiy, etc...I've trained, competed and chilled at the beach in them. Still look brand new.

I'm 6'1, 190-195# and they fit great. Size 32" pant size and short is spot on. Hope that helps.

I havent tried either of those shorts but I do have Reebok CrossFit shorts and Rigor Gear shorts. I personally love the rigor shorts. They are light weight, loose but not to loose, comfortable, and very durable. Check them out.

Re: WOD shorts

I have both the 2Pood Shorts and the Forged Amphibians. By far the Amphibians are my favorite shorts. The construction is top notch. The 4 way stretch is outstanding. I'm 6 Feet 205 pounds with 28 inch quads and a 32 inch waist and these things fit perfectly. I wear size 32s by the way. My favorite feature of the shorts is the signature Forged pocket. The pocket allows me to wear the shorts both inside and outside of the gym. I can't over emphasize how much I love that darn pocket. In additions, the owners are top notch and are very open to making you a deal if you buy the shorts at a competition. I have 4 pairs of Forged shorts out of atleast 20 other WOD shorts and I consistently choose the Forged shorts over anything else.

Re: WOD shorts

I REALLY REALLY REALLY like all of the shorts by Real Xtreme Rx. They are SUPER light weight and are my go to shorts. I have yet to find a brand that measures up. Check them out:http://realxtremerx.com/ (WFS)

I have not had a chance to try Forged, but I can say I have heard good things from many!

Re: WOD shorts

i have pairs from Rogue, Reebok, Nike, Jaco and a few other companies and i can tell you that hands down the best ones i have used are the Jaco Hybrid training. the material is fantastic, they are super comfy and the price is very good. i now have 3 pairs of the Jaco and don't see myself using anything else.

Re: WOD shorts

I have the Forged, HTFU, and WOD Gear and all 3 are great. The only thing I wish the HTFU had that the other pairs do is pockets.

Re: WOD shorts

These are great! What ever you get I would recommend getting a pair of shorts that have a slit on the side of them. Better ROM for DL's, squats and running.
