What roger said

I have 5 pairs of these shorts and I wear them almost every day. Please make more of them


I cannot stress enough, that this line is overlooked at UA. I go to stores to find MK1 ANYTHING and even associates do not know or have heard about it. Please make more of these shorts. I do not ask for much. I ask simply to able to purchase a product that you have made to love. :(

Not next to skin at all

These are described as a next to skin fit but they are not at all. I have large thighs and these are a very loose fit on me so no idea who they would fit as next to skin.

The Perfect Shorts DO Exist!

I’ve been looking for a liner-less 7” pocketed gym shorts for so long. The search is over. These are perfect. Not too slim, not too baggy. Soft, light, and comfortable. Ordered 3 more pairs.

Not that special for the price

I didn’t like these shorts and returned them. I know the gym is not supposed to be a fashion show, but I would not consider these to be particularly flattering on the body - the shorter length was ok, but the leg opening is quite wide, making them seem ill-fitting - considering they are listed as a “fitted” style. If like me you have large developed quads and glutes and like your shorts to fit to your body and show off your assets, you might be disappointed. The material is super thin and while stretch fabric is necessary, these just feel really cheap. I would consider these ok for lounging around the bed/house but not up to my standard for actual gym use. The return process has been painfully slow to get a refund, I won’t be purchasing from UA online store again.

weird fit

Weird shape. Crotch to bottom is shorter but waist to crotch is longer which makes it hard to move. Material is nice and cool.

Men's 7" MK1 Shorts

Exceptionally comfortable. Great fit. Great shorts!


After owning my sole pair of MK-1 7" shorts for the past 2-3 months I am very pleased as they are clearly good quality shorts that look, feel and perform great! I only wish the MK-1's came in more colors & styles (i.e. 'twist'), and it would be great if the shorts were in stock long enough to purchase more in the few existing colors they currently have. Please come out with more colors for the MK-1 7" shorts.

Great fitting and great feeling shorts

These shorts fit me really well they aren't too baggy and they aren't too long! I bought them to replace my 5 year old pair that had a small hole in the crotch. Having pockets is also amazing, particularly for playing tennis!

Great for working out!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These shorts are great and never get in the way. They a lean and stay pretty dry.
