Who needs 70 dollar MMA shorts? Soffe XT-46 Men work just fine! They function as any pair of MMA shorts should – durable strong material, no external pockets, buttons, zippers. String on the inside to keep things tight. Velcro lined zipper and waist. There’s a small pocket on the inside, big enough to hold maybe a few bucks cash and a house key. But don’t be that guy / gal if you roll with this crap inside your pockets.
I am a beginner, so I was looking for a good pair of fight shorts to get things started right. I purchased a pair of Soffe XT-46 Men shorts and I plan on ordering more in the future! I got the Medium shorts, as I am 5’7 140 lb (Typically I wear 30 – 32 inseam) and the shorts go down at the knee, if not a tiny bit past the knee.
I’m getting back into fighting, and after a long search for something comfortable to wear, decided I’d take a chance and order theSoffe XT-46 Men shorts from Soffe here. The thing is, I have one of those stupid waist sizes. A size 30 is a tiny bit too tight for me, and a 31 is too loose (I guess I’m a 30.5). Still, I went with the medium size, hoping that the velcro waist and string on the inside would help me out if the shorts were too loose.
Amazingly, Soffe XT-46 Men fit perfectly!
I’m 5’11” and 155 lbs, and the shorts are just slightly above my knees. The material is a lot more comfortable than I was expecting too, similar to your average swimming trunks. The velcro waist and crotch ensures that the shorts will stay on you securely. I was a little thrown off by the string being on the inside, since I’m used to having it on the outside of my old gi pants, but it’s great and was an extra help in making sure the shorts fit me. What I loved about these the most is the colored parts on the inside of each leg (whatever color option you get, mine were grey). These can stretch and make it easier to move if someone’s got you by the leg of your shorts. It’s very similar to what Hayabusa has on their combat shorts.
Moving around, stretching, kicking and throwing knee attacks is a breeze. The shorts don’t have any pockets or anything on the outside that could be used against you when rolling- they’re strictly for MMA! There is, however, a tiny pocket inside on the right side of the waist for your keys. It’s very small and closes with velcro. I’ve put my keys in there when jogging and didn’t experience any discomfort.
The only drawback is that these are incredibly baggy. They flow like a skirt kinda when you’re walking around, so they may look kinda dumb if you wear them out and about. On the mat though, they get the job done.
