Regarding Dakine Nitrous shorts, I'm wondering if anyone who has a pair recommends wearing compression shorts or wettie shorts underneath to avoid chaffing... or is it OK to just go commando because they don't rub.

I didn't really want to get half way through my first session with them and realize i had no skin left in the groin area.

If not in a full wetsuit I use 2mm neoprene shorts under Nitrous shorts. Been using this style of harness for more than ten years.

Just had my first session in the shorts... I decided to go commando for that free feeling, however I did the leg straps up tight enough so nothing would get caught up. I just love this harness so far. Super comfy from the word go and all my pieces are still in tact.
