Very comfortable, perfect length and don't ride up. Sizing does run large though, so size down. I'm buying more!

By Esther

Comments about RRS Womens Road Runner Sports Ultra 6" Compression Short:

These are great shorts. I have 4 pairs and am considering purchasing another pair or two. The legs are just the right length and have sufficient compression to prevent chafing. The waistband runs too high for me, so I fold it over (therefore no irritation of the drawstring inside) and the back stays folded over as well. The key pocket does require a little gingerness to keep from tearing, but since I knew that from the reviews upfront, I haven't experienced any "rip-outs" when trying to open the zipper.

Comments about RRS Womens Road Runner Sports Ultra 6" Compression Short:

Awesome shorts. Great wicking, great fabric. No chafing or ride up on my 5'4" body in the medium. I have thick legs, though. Pocket works for IDs or a key. Drawstring tends to slip during a wash cycle. I prefer the version without the reflective doodads in front.

Comments about RRS Womens Road Runner Sports Ultra 6" Compression Short:

I am 5'6" and a pear shaped size 8. These definitely creep up in the beginning of the run, but don't after I start sweating. I therefore only wear them when it is hot, otherwise I stick to 7" shorts. I used to have a different brand 6" short that didn't ride up due to gripper elastic on the legs - I wish these shorts had that.

By Chris

Comments about RRS Womens Road Runner Sports Ultra 6" Compression Short:

Loved this shorts - my second pair of compression shorts and they're the best! The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is that after only wearing them 4 times, two of which were long runs - 17 and 20mls - my hydration pack rubbed through the little mesh screen in the back and tore completely through. Not a good design feature in that regard. Would defintely get another pair and just lose the belt.

Comments about RRS Womens Road Runner Sports Ultra 6" Compression Short:

From the other reviews I'm guessing these shorts are not perfect for the super skinny. I am "Thigh heavy" and I love these under a pair of cotton shorts. After running 9 miles, there was no chafing at the waist and the legs are the perfect length for me (I'm 5' 4"). I've looked a LONG time for the right compression shorts and I love these.

By TC

from Undisclosed

Comments about RRS Womens Road Runner Sports Ultra 6" Compression Short:

These are great! Have been looking for over a year for longer tights that weren't thin and really tight compression. There are a few of us older runners who need a bit more coverage no matter how athletic. Found these to run small but could be I don't like compression shorts. No problem with zipper yet and yes some ride up but not much. Will be doing a 1/2 in these so will let you know how they hold up. Could you make a pair just about an 1 or 2 inches longer.

I LOVE THESE SHORTS! Finally, a pair of shorts that have it all....slightly low rise, longer inseam, perfect compression. I ran in these and didn't have to adjust them once. I just got them yesterday, ran in them this morning, and I am calling to order another three pairs.

I love these shorts. I am back to buy another pair. They are comfortable and fit snugly without being tight. I have not experienced a problem with the zipper, but I don't use it very often and when I do it is just to hold my car key. I find these so much more comfortable than regular shorts and lighter and cooler than a capri tight.

Good quality and well made. They do, however, tend to ride-up when I run. A large fits me and I am a medium frame. I would recommend.
