I totally forgot I had this pair to review and decided to wear them on my trip to LA. Which I think partly wore because I saw N2N at the LA Eagle that night for the Hard Heroes party. Which was a lot of fun (except the jet lag). So I put these on when I did the final things to get ready for my flight. I didn’t leave till 5 PM so I had plenty of time. While doing things I did something I haven’t done in a while. I turned this pair inside out. Why you ask? Because the tag just irritated me so much. I thought about taking it off but realized I could just flip them.
Once I had them inside out, they were pretty good. I love the fit of these because they are very tight in the legs, but not too tight. They really breathed with me through out my journey. And the pouch was amazing! I love the pouch they have created and have had very few that I haven’t loved!
These got put through their paces on this day. More so than most pairs I review. Here is the day I had….I get to the airport, get checked in and head to security. The sign said 10 minutes, but it ended up taking more than 35 minutes. I glanced at my watch and had 15 minutes to get to the gate before boarding. I was like “No problem” It’s a short train ride down and I”ll be there. But that wasn’t meant to be! I rounded the corner and the trains in the ATL airport wasn’t working. They were holding everyone up and not letting them go down to the transportation mall. So my 15 minute window was slowly closing. In about 5 minutes they let people down and I could still make it. But the train got one concourse away form mine and stayed there. After 7 minutes, and yes I timed it, I got off the train and started to walk. Well everyone else had this idea had to duck and weave between people.
I make my way over to the concours and basically had to fight my way to the escalator. I get on and head up to the concourse. Which is a good thing because when I get near the top I hear security say “don’t let anyone else up”. After I get up there I realize why, there are about 2,000 people waiting to go down and they are lined up ¼ way down the concourse. I start running at this point to the gate. I have my backpack with my camera, ipad, computer and more. This backpack weighs about 35 pounds. But there is one thing that I didn’t count on. I took my belt off at TSA and didn’t put it back on. So my shorts were falling down. So here I go running down the concourse yanking my shorts up as I go. But I get there right when they start boarding!
Well this pair felt amazing because It never got in the way. The fabric really breathed by the time I got to the gate I didn’t feel like the fabric absorbed all the sweat. I’m sure we have all had these pairs, and then I would have to sit for over 5 hours in a plane, it would not have been good. Turning them inside out was a blessing. If it hadn’t the tag would have just made things worse. So if this pair could stand up to a mad dash to the gate , it would be a great pair to work out or do kickball, tennis or anything else active. This is going to be one of my favorite N2N pairs, I’m actually wearing it again as I type this review (yes its inside out). So this is one of the first times I used an athletic pair in a review situation!
I almost forgot the sizing. I think if you’re a fan of N2N you know your size. They have been consistent. I got a large and I’m a 38 waist now and it fit me fine. Make sure you check the size chart for your correct size.
