    Comments about R-Gear Mens Road Runner Sports High-Speed Compression 5" Fitted Shorts:

    Like how these fit, though they are on the shorter side. Have used them alone and under other shorts (fine both ways). Construction seems very good. The pocket is a big plus. Going to get a pair of 7" too for the extra length. Sized right ("S" fits 5'8", 30" waist).

      Comments about R-Gear Mens Road Runner Sports High-Speed Compression 5" Fitted Shorts:

      I've been a fan of wearing RRS compression shorts on my runs for several years now. I actually preferred the shorter Women's 6" short over the Men's 7" that I originally purchased. I was very glad to see RRS add the 5" version for men this year because these are the best shorts for running in; particularly in the heat of the summer. The 5" is great, shows some leg but not too much and maintains its fit over a long run or day working out. Thanks RRS for making a great shorter compression short for guys.

        I have run in several different length RRS compression shorts and they work great as liners or by themselfs. Really like using them with my CW-X running tights because they prevent irritations from the seams in the CW-X.

            Bought the 7" version of these shorts, size medium, last year when I was 20 pounds heavier. I liked those enough to try a size small this year and, since I also use them for yoga, decided to go with the 5". They feel as expected, just a little shorter. :)

              Now I wish I could buy another pair--expert for women at this size. Love these--easily washed (I don't dry them in the dryer though), durable, great to keep legs from chafing, and nice compression.

              Comments about R-Gear Mens Road Runner Sports High-Speed Compression 5" Fitted Shorts:

              I use these for running. I like the shorter length and they are comfortable. They don't offer much compression. They feel a bit loose in the hips and backside. A smaller size would be too tight in the waist and thighs. Although I haven't used it, the pocket could be handy. I'm not ready to give up my running shorts for compression shorts, but if I do, these will be the shorts I use.

                I like the fit but I wished it came in other colors. I don't usually buy women's shorts as they are often too low waisted. If you want the high waistline and a great fabric with a shorter hem--these are your shorts!

                  Like these shorts for warm weather/hot workouts. They aren't too short, but legs are above mid-thigh. The waist and seat feel well cut. But the waist seems too high. I've taken to folding the waistband over once, and the fit is perfect. Thus the four stars.

                      One look, and I knew these were too short for me. I didn't try them on, but the material feels strong. I traded them in for the 7 inch vesion, and they give good compression over an acceptable portion of my thighs.

                        Runs just a little tight but would not suggest going up a size. Nice and short for yoga and running (I prefer a shorter short - splits, etc.) and it works great for hot yoga and regular yoga.

                          I bought these shorts for running and they great. I've only worn them once, but they provide great support and freedom of movement. I've worn traditional running shorts for a while, and I was looking for something with more support that didn't go all the way down to the knee. I'm only 5' 7'' and these shorts provide the extra support I was looking for without feeling like I was in a body suit.

                              Shorter than you think, the inseam was actually just over 4", but great for hot weather. On long hot runs 13+ miles chafing was becoming a problem, glide just wasn't lasting long enough, and these worked great. They are a bit warmer due to the thick fabric, but good support and no chafing

                                  Comments about R-Gear Mens Road Runner Sports High-Speed Compression 5" Fitted Shorts:

                                  Bought them in my quest to solve chaffing issues.....I have big legs regardless of fitness level. lol And they have just kept growing on me ever since I'd try others but I can't stand shorts going to my knees especially in summer and the length on these is perfect. Took me 2 months to realize I had a pocket but I love it to death, I live with my mp3 and I hate arm straps, extra. I also stopped double layering them with compression boxers and just started wearing them alone around the house and they are [*] comfy for chilling especially in summer. Can't speak on any compression shorts but these but I can say they work for mtb wk running long short or mid and no durability issues to date. Also I've kept buying them because I can't find simular length shots with a pocket >.> and my tan line is hilarious enuf with out pushing it lower.
