    Comments about Mens R-Gear High-Speed Compression 7" Fitted Shorts:

    Reasonable price for these sung compressors. I ran 16 miles with none of the usual inner thigh chafing and my quads felt remarkably fresher than they do in regular running shorts. Some loose thread ends on side seam makes me wonder how long they will last but so far so good.

        I use this while running. Under shorts in warmer weather and under long pants in colder weather. Fit and performance is ideal. Comfortable and well made. They are better than the name brands that cost a lot more.

            These are comfortable except for the tight hem at the bottom of each leg. It feels like having a tight rubber band mid-thigh and is unbearable. I'm going to return these and try the 9" version whenever RR re-stocks those.

                Product fits fine, is comfortable, and the 7 inch length is right for me. I tried the 11 inch too long and hit the back of my knees, I exchanged them for 9 inch versions which was still too long for me. Finally, baby bear 7 inch model is right for me.

                  I've never been a fan of baggy shorts for working out. These compression shorts are well-constructed, sleek and comfortable. I get full range of motion, and the compression keeps me in touch with my form and movement. This is my favorite piece of gym gear.

                    I've had 2 prs of these for c. 10 yrs that are beginning to be not so compressive. I bought 2 new pr and still keep the originals for back up. I use them mainly in the gym but do use them occasionally for a mid-season run. They are very durable and snag free around weight machines.

                      These are, without a doubt, the most comfortable running shorts I've ever worn for marathons (and I've run 12 marathons to date)! The weather during my recent marathon was a constant light rain, and these shorts felt great the whole way - no rubbing or chaffing (unlike other shorts I've used in the past). Also, the fit was great based on the recommendation from the RR website.

                        I like these because they are more comfortable for me than regular shorts. For whatever reason, fabric shorts rub my thighs and after a run I get a rash. Compression shorts don't do this, which is why I prefer these to run in.

                            During my first run with these, I was ready to order a few more pairs. They fit great, feel great and allow for smooth running without the friction found in normal running shorts. Even the mail carrier was checking me out! The pocket is not visible online but it looks like the state of Nevada and could easily for some cash, a key and a pack of GU without looking like you have a bad case of Bursitis.

                            Only minor con is I have large, strong quads and the fit is slightly tight which may cause some riding up if they do not break in a bit.

                            Bottom line: Buy these!

                              good fit all around, could be a bit more snug in the upper thigh, but still fits great. This is a well made pair of shorts at a great price

                              I think these are a really good value. The blue is a navy, not as bright as I thought it showed online. No big deal. The drawstrings like to get pulled through so that one end is now retracted into the waist band area... takes some ingenuity to pull back out. That is my only gripe. They are comfy and well built for the price. Worn them about 10 times so far and only for yoga and some gym cardio work.

                                These are my new favorite shorts. They're a bit thicker than others I have and also fit a bit tight, but not so much that I'd size down. I thought I was going to have issues with the size of the side pocket, but I was able to easily stuff my set of keys and two gels in there without feeling them while running.

                                    I've been running in these for about a month and I have not had any problems with them. They are comfortable and do not bunch up. If I have to do errands after I run I know that they will be dry by the time I get home and I won't have that swampy feeling. The key/card pocket on the side is a great feature and was the reason I went with these over others shorts.

                                      I used these shorts for running under the Road Runner Sports Pro Velocity 3 Split Short. They worked great, did not limit movement and help keep my legs warm.

                                          I'm about comfort, especially on longer double digit mile training runs.
                                          The snug fit and high waist aids in core support.
                                          Noticeable difference in maintaining good form even late into the run.
                                          These shorts tend to hold in a bit more heat. Great on cooler days.
                                          Fabric is of good quality and the flat stitching does not rub or chafe.

                                              I needed some tights to limit muscle vibration while providing comfort in the hot weather, since my compression shorts were a bit warm. These delivered the goods with the breathable mesh and the price was reasonable.

                                                  These shorts actually felt a tad bit big compared to Brooks brand shorts I own. However I am a woman wearing men's shorts so the fit just may be a little different. The reason I got men's shorts is because I am a 6' tall woman & I didn't see any women's shorts that would be long enough for me. I have no complaints but may give the women's a try next time.

                                                      Over the last couple of years I have been having hamstring problems so I was looking for a short to provide some compression. Thus far they are working great. I liked the first pair so much that I order two more. I live in Texas and so far they have been a match for the heat and humidity.

                                                        Excellent product for less muscle fatugue. These shorts fit true to size. Great for those early morning runs.

                                                        I bought this short at the same time I bought the ASICS Inner muscle short. Both are equally good but this short is half the price and is a better value for the money.

                                                        Got these for running. Nice length, fits well though the crotch and around my legs but the rear is a bit baggy. Should have gone with a smaller size I guess. Overall, I would recommend.
