To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought these looking for a well made, comfortable compression shorts for everyday use as implied by the description and price point. These definitely are not that - they run smaller than indicated on the size chart notwithstanding the compression feature, but the main issue or 'rub' is that the internal seams and the waist band are raised, hard (not even remotely soft), irritating, and made such that the seams are in 'all the wrong places'; I quickly returned them before otherwise tearing up the body parts I was tying to protect.
I had a sore quad muscle and didn't want to rest too much so I bought these. They helped keep me training. I would not recommend or use on a race simply for me, because they do seem to warm me up a bit, but for training and helping with sore muscles they are perfect.
These are my favorite compression shorts for running. They're the thinnest material of all the running compression shorts I own. I've run marathons in them and hundreds of miles of training runs. They're a little too thick for a base layer, though they could work in a pinch under a pair of pants if necessary.
Has more compression than other c-shorts I've tried; was looking to replace some (very old) heavy duty Bike-brand compression shorts that are no longer available; this style has come closest to what I was looking for (i.e., true compression and support).
