This is my detailed invoice noting the products that are in my box, the sizing, and cost of each item. Total cost to keep all 7 items would be $360.00. If I kept 5 or more items, I would receive a 20% discount ($72.00), the $20 styling fee deducted, the price per piece would average at $38.29.
Wantable Men’s Fitness also includes a USPS return bag for anything that I’d like to return. You can either schedule a free pickup or drop off at your local post office or mailbox.
Let’s take a look at what’s inside!
Bullitt Short by Rhone – Cost to keep: $64
These shorts are pretty great and have most of the components I look for in a pair of workout shorts; they’re moisture wicking fabric (great for us sweaters out there!) and are extremely comfortable. My only issue is that these are unlined and as of lately, I’ve really been drawn to shorts with compression liners, which act as underwear and add more comfort.
I do appreciate that details on this pair though, especially this kangaroo pocket! Most kangaroo pockets on workout shorts are quite small and can at most only hold a key or a credit card; this pocket can securely hold your phone which is awesome and the reason I’m going to keep.
Momentum Track Pant 2.0 by MPG Sport – Cost to keep: $76
I was unable to find the exact pair of these pants, so the pair I linked to is similar from the brand. These pants give me “coach” or “dad” vibes and just really don’t work for my workout or lounging style; the inseam is just a tad too long and the pants are too wide at the bottom, I prefer a tapered fit. Nonetheless, the pants are quite good quality and I believe are in line with the retail value listed. They’re also very comfortable, both at the elastic waist and throughout the legs – but not comfortable enough that I can get over the fit.
Infinity Shorts by TLF Apparel – Cost to keep: $44
These basketball style shorts are a little too long for my liking; I prefer a short that is 2-3” above the knee, both in workout and non-workout shorts. The quality is nice throughout, but these don’t have the bells and whistles that I look for in a short; like kangaroo pockets, compression liners, etc. These are just a little too basic for what I look for and will be going back.
Uplift Seamless T-shirt by MPG Sport – Cost to keep: $34
I was unable to find the exact shirt on the brand’s site, so the link is to a comparable item. This shirt has quite a few of the traits I really look for in a workout shirt; it has the antibacterial and anti-order technology to help with smell and is SO comfortable due to the soft material and the seamless construction of the top. Even with all of these positives, I’m not really happy with the fit on this, it’s a tad too snug for my liking, so I’ll be returning.
Chance Top by TLF Apparel – Cost to keep: $46
This workout top is pretty good quality and the infi-dry technology fabric is extremely soft, making this top quite comfortable for both workout and non-workouts! I, however, really dislike anything v-neck on any top, so I’ll be returning this back to Wantable.
Path Long Sleeve Top by Cory Vines – Cost to keep: $38
This top is pretty versatile; it’s great for working out, lounging, or plain going out. The material is sweat-wicking and anti-odor, so you won’t have to worry about smelling too badly during or after your workout, which is a major plus. The color is also quite nice and will pair mostly anything – I however just really don’t like long sleeve workout shirts, so I’ll be returning.
Graphic Hoody by Sub_Urban Riot – Cost to keep: $58
I was unable to find this hoodie on the Sub_Urban Riot site, so my link is to a similar product. This top didn’t work out for me in any way; the sizing, which I believe is unisex, is way too small throughout the body and the quality was just a little poor for the high cost of $58. I do appreciate that this is a lightweight hoodie (a little thicker than t-shirt material) and the color scheme is quite versatile, but overall, this just doesn’t work for me.
Verdict: Despite running into a few issues with fit issues and taste preferences on this order, I’m keeping one pair of shorts! The quality throughout most of the shipment was extremely high (except for one top) and in line with the prices they were listed at. I’m going to request some more tapered pants moving forward in my next shipment but overall, I’m pretty happy with this one!
