I am glad to say that I gave these another try and they are once again made with premium elastic! I highly recomend the Sport Aid Suspensory.
I have ordered and used this product for several years, but the last time I ordered I received a product that was inferior to what I was used to. The waist band is made from a different and inferior elastic than before and the fraying began after only one wash. Also, out of the four I ordered, one had a snag in the pouch upon opening the box. I really like the price and the pouch, but the waist band, this time, will not last as long as the ones I bought from OTC before.
