@SurreySam strange question, but do the shorts seem like they'll be hard wearing?

I've been using the Aero shorts for the past few seasons and they fit well but don't last very long.
I train twice a week and play one or two games (depending on fitness!) so I have a couple of pairs that I rotate, but only get a season out of them.

I know they're not expensive in the grand scheme of things, but at 15 a pair I'm basically chucking 30 a season away. If the shock doctors last better I may invest in a pair or two.

Alternatively, I could accept the fact I get a decent amount of use out of them and just suck it up, but that's not half as fun as purchasing new gear, is it! :D

You should try the shock Dr aircore hardcup

Yeah the crown jewels were well shocked with the Bioflex fitted :(

I've not seen the Aero shorts in person, to really give a solid opinion.

From pictures the Shock Doctor waistband and seams look better made, whether that combined with the material translates to a longer lasting product is hard to say though. They're also more expensive at 20 + delivery from Shock Doctor UK.

Sorry, not much help I know.

@WalkingWicket37 you only get a season out of the Aero shorts? What are you doing to them?! I can't even remember how long I've had mine and they're still fine, I net/play a lot too.

Leopardskin thong, Peter Stringfellow style, or a Borat mankini.

Put them on for the warm up, run around in the field, bowl my allocation and bat for between 1 and 8 balls (on average).

Maybe I'm too fat for lycra and thats causing my issue haha :-[

The shockdoctor option seems pretty cool although they seem to be unavailable even on their own website? Are they still producing them for the UK market?

You cant look past the trusty jock strap ! Tried a few different pairs of the shorts/briefs over the years but nothing is as as comfy as the almighty jock!

You're probably not meant to, I'm just too lazy to keep changing... 😂

Surely theres only one man we can turn to when it comes to advice on industrial grade apple catchers?

@FattusCattus gusset has taken some tap over the years I imagine, so I reckon hes found the perfect pair of pants to keep his plums in check.

Well thank you @KettonJake

I can report that the Aero pants have been superb at resisting the ravages of my massive ball-sack and sweatage. I cannot recommend them enough, best I've used with excellent compression and no box 'wandering'.

In fact, I'm wondering if I could be the poster boy for their bollock-hammocks?

I'm guessing Fattus works in front line marketing and social media for a sensitive organisation😂
