Comments about McDavid Adult Athletic Supporter - 2 Pack:
This is a classic athletic supporter - and perhaps McDavid's best product. I'm not fond of their newer straps with "synthetic" mesh materials - the lateral support/elastic is inadequate.
While swimmer straps have a thinner elastic waist band and tend to remain hidden below your clothing - this has a wide top elastic waist - the benefit here is that your shorts or outer clothing will rub against the waist and not your skin.
It's the best alternative to the newer compression shorts - I'm not fond of the synthetic materials for compression shorts, sometimes they're too tight in the wrong places - and having the fabric against my skin during physical activity is uncomfortable. Old fashion straps are the ultimate for breathability - and when in a sports environment, in the gym, etc - where one has to be cautious about athletes foot and other concerns - the advantage here is that the minimalist piece of protective clear dries quickly and allows ventilation; this means that one would be less prone to developing jock-itch versus wearing tight fitting fabrics or cotton, which holds moisture against the skin.
And - last but not least, for some reason - the black supporter seems to be more comfortable than the white. No clue why.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
