Now on to the review.

The Predator Grappling Shorts during grappling felt somewhat ” loose ” , it might be due to the way England’s sizing is different , but i wear a size 34-36 normally depending on the way the shorts are made. I ordered a Large due to the websites sizing stating  Large – Waist size 34-36 inches. 

Comparable to my Sprawl Fusion shorts i really enjoyed the incognito styling, with minimal logos and slits in the sides. The velcro at times would dig into my skin after rolling , but again it may be due to the larger size. The stretchy material between the shorts legs made for ease of movement. Care has been made to embroider the logo into the fabric, the eagles on the left side of the shorts are not embroidered in, but are screen printed with quality. I would give these shorts 4 out of 5 stars.

Overall the Predator Grappling Shorts are a great entry level short for the budget minded fighter. There are other shorts on the market with similar features but at a much higher price. For great grappling shorts at a great price, put Black Eagle Predator Grappling Shorts on your list .
