Perfect for Long Runs!

5

While training for the San Francisco marathon my regular running shorts started cutting in and chafing. I bought these just 10 days before the marathon and did one test run. I was nervous going into the marathon, but they were amazing! No chafing, and sooo comfortable. No riding up, no problems at all. I usually wear a Medium which felt too loose so I went with Small and they were absolutely perfect! I cannot recommend highly enough.

Great Shorts! Get them!

I love these shorts. I am 5'1" and 114 pounds. I exercise 6 days a week, run marathons, and am doing a triathalon in two months. Despitethat, I'm pear shaped and a bit hippy so I tend to shy away from compression shorts unless I have running shorts over them. But these are great. I was surprised how much I liked them alone. I would wear them to Bikram Yoga by themselves, and under running shorts while out for a jog. They are short enough where they don't peak out from under the running short, but long enough so there isn't any chaffing. Love them! Get them!

Great Shorts

4

I'm an avid runner and purchased these shorts to help prevent chafing on my long runs. The shorts did exactly that. They were comfortable and flattering. I listened to the other reviews and bought a smaller size. My only gripe is that they road up while on my long run. That could be due to their length. I think if I had gotten slightly longer ones I would have been fine. Other than that I really like these shorts. They can be worn alone or under other shorts and be fine.

Great Running/workout Shorts

4

I got these shorts for my yoga/running routine. I'm 5'4 130lbs. usually wear medium shorts, but when I got the medium they were too loose. Exchanged it for a small. The material is great wicking for sweat and very movable fabric. Doesn't ride up and great length to wear alone or under shorts. LOVE THEM!! So glad I got these

Just OK

The shorts are great in that they aren't as constrictive as other compression shorts, but then again I think they tend to run big. The waistband is wide and comfortable, which is a huge plus. However, I like low-rise shorts and these are just the opposite. They came up very high on my waist. I am a shorter person, so they would probably fit a taller person better.

Perfect Fit

I have been running in Road Runner compression capris for a while, but thought since the weather is warmer I would try the 3" version. I haven't been disappointed. They require no adjustments on long runs, and I haven't had any problems with chafing. They are short, but provide ample coverage for long striding as well as for tying shoes.

Not long enough for larger thighs

3

Love the fit and feel of these shorts. The waistband is super comfortable and flattering. Unfortunately, they're just not long enough to keep from riding up over my thighs and prevent chafing during a run. Will definitely try the longer version of this short, since everything else about them is great.

Nice shorts!

I bought these shorts primarily for Bikram yoga. They are fabulous. Comfortable, light, and the right length for me (5'4"). I just wish I had bought 2 pairs.

Best Running Shorts!

5

These are great shorts for running. I'm 5'-5" about 125 lbs. and wear the Medium. The fit is just right for me, not skin tight. I also love the length of these, they are not too short or too revealing.

I really like these short because they fit very well. I have a hard time finding shorts that fit just right. Will definitely be buying more of these in the future!

I run alot of races, these are so lightweight I feel fast and free. They run just a little big, I went one size down from I normally wear and they were perfect.

Adorable shorts! I'm 5'7 145lbs and I ordered the medium. They do run a little big, but are very flattering. Nice addition to the running apparel!

Pretty Good Shorts

4

Overall I love these shorts. They are just short enough, without feeling like they are too short. The fabric and the waistline is super-flattering! They makes my butt look great! They're nice to run in too. The only downsides for these is that they do ride up and they do not have a hidden pocket. Once I start sweating a little, they stay in place more, but I find that during spin class, I'm always pulling them down. I still wear them all the time though.

Cute shorts but no compression

3

These shorts are super cute but by no means should they be labeled as "compression" shorts, as they barely compress. I ordered them in a S, which is the same size I wear for other compression brands, and I feel absolutely no compression or support at all. On the good side though, they are very cute to wear, and don't ride up much when I run. I will be using these for just every day walking around to do errands, but they don't provide much compression functionality for running.

I love these shorts!!! They are great for under my military running shorts. The uniform is designed for men so, the crotch is about 5 inches too low. Wearing theese shorts under them makes me feel like I'm dressed without breaking the regulations (the length allows for running comfort without being seen) or feeling bulky. Also cotton so much better for women than the military-recommended spandex.

Just finished 10 miles in these, they are outstanding shorts! Very comfortable and breathable. Like the others has said they ride up very little. They are true to size, I'm 34" Hips, 28" waist and a solid RRS Medium, which is what I ordered. For true compression with these shorts I'd order a size down though, they are form fitting but not "compression" at size.

These shorts are very flattering. The detailing below the waist is a good disguise for a less than perfect lower ab section. I have about 5 types of these kind of shorts that I wear, and these are the most flattering. I will replace my others with this pair as they wear out. Excellent value - other comperable shorts have cost me $38.00 and up.

Almost perfect

4

PROS: Most comfortable and flattering waistband of any running shorts or tights I own (and I have many). I wish other RRS compression shorts and tights had this same waistband. Fabric is just right, wicks well, not too thin, not too thick. Cons: In my usual size SM, does not compress well. Legs ride up slightly and run somewhat short on me (5'4", 120 lb).

I bought these shorts from your store in Paramus, NJ. They were definitely not my style but I thought I would break out of my comfort zone...WELL...I loved them...so soft, perfect for running or core class. And then, they got lost somewhere in my house (they are pretty small!) So I am buying two pair in case that happens again!

I have never been a fan of compression shorts but these are really nice. Just the right length and really comfortable. Minor problems with ride up, certainly less than with the loose running shorts. I thought I was too old (45) for compression shorts, but these really help me look and feel young when I run.

A Winner on Every Count!

I got these to wear under my compression pants at the gym following a mishap with regular underwear. They fit the use perfectly for me, as they don't bind, pinch, or shift through heavy movement. In fact, I might need to order these in a size smaller because they're working so well I'm losing more inches/weight, LOL.

Rides Up

2

Bought these because of muscle problems & thought compression short would help. But they don't seem to be real compression shorts, more like very short bike shorts and the inside of the legs rides up so much they are uncomfortable to run in. Will go somewhere else to try out real compression shorts. At lease these were relatively cheap.

These shorts were very comfortable and looked great however the minute I started running in them, the material started riding up my thigh and I ended up exposing way too much flesh. I think for anyone with some curves, be aware these ride up and will show more than just your toned legs.

great fit

These shorts are great for in the gym...rowing, running, jumping rope. I found they don't stay put when you transition...so for a workout where I'm jumping rope then dashing to do sit ups or push ups...they don't stay put...all in all a great choice.

These shorts are AWESOME. I am 5'1 with a 28" waist, and I ordered the medium. Not tight at all, but not falling off of me, either. I went for a 1 hour run and they stayed put the entire time. So happy to have found a pair of shorts that doesn't ride up!!

10 miles. 75 degrees. No chaffing. These shorts are perfection. They DO stay in place; I am 5'7", 140lbs, bought a medium. Very true to size. RRS, keep lots of these in stock and rename them Wonder Pants! I love them, I'm buying 4 more pair.
