North South Jiu Jitsu Underwear sent me a couple of pairs of their mens pants to try out. They offer a number of helpful additional improvements over regular underwear.

These pants* are excellent. I wore them over a period of several weeks of training and they fit perfectly. I must admit, I was skeptical at first that they would offer any benefit over and above a regular pair of pants, but there are a number of things about them that are very well thought out.

After wearing them for a while during training, the spandex/polyester material does a good job wicking away the build up of me sweat keeping my groin region cool.
North South Underwear have made a wonderful product to wear that is functional and a genuine pleasure to wear during a tough, hot, sweaty workout. For some, the relatively high price might be a barrier - I'm pretty sure regular high street spandex compression underwear can be found for less than $15-$20, however these North South underpants seem to have been designed with more consideration for the day to day grappler.
*In the UK, we refer to men's underwear as pants or underpants.
