    Comments about R-Gear Womens Road Runner Sports High-Speed Compression 6" Fitted Shorts:

    First, I almost never wear shorts because I have full thighs and shorts generally creep and bunch up or just look unflattering. The length on these shorts is nice, modest but not ridiculous. I wore them around the house for a bit to see if they would creep up and they seemed okay, but when I wore them for a short run today they did ride up a bit (though not awfully). Also, the fabric does not qualify as compression in my book, it fits snugly but definite not supportive to me. They'll be added to my rotation for very hot days instead of capris, but they still aren't quite perfect if you're "curvy".

    I am definetely a woman ...

    Comments about R-Gear Womens Road Runner Sports High-Speed Compression 6" Fitted Shorts:

    I am definetely a woman who "needs some extra coverage!" Haha, but I just look at it as more to love! However, sometimes you just feel like compressing things a little. That's why these Women's RRS Velocity 6" Compression shorts are right up my alley! Whenever I wear them, things feel way more compact. And you should see the stares! For all those "large and in charge" women out there who occasionally feel the need to compress, I highly recommend these!

      Comments about R-Gear Womens Road Runner Sports High-Speed Compression 6" Fitted Shorts:

      I love these shorts. I ran over 7 miles in them with no chaffing! They are a nice length on my leg and I like the plain black color. Easy to mix and match shirts to go with. I usually wear a size medium running shorts (in other brands) and that is what I ordered here and they fit perfectly. The side pocket does not seem overly useful but I can go without a pocket most of the time. I also ordered the newer version of this short (with the yellow stripe) and that one didn't fit as snugly & it seemed to be 3/4" shorter in the leg. The back pocket was nicer and bigger so IF you really NEED the nice pocket I would recommend that one instead. But I prefer this one! I am returning the one with the yellow stripe.

        I am a 50 something women that bought these for a Warrior dash, so I was covered when I got all wet and muddy. They fit well and performed the way I wanted. Kept me covered and comfortable. I will wear these running in the future and will purchase more

          I originally purchased this short over the winter to wear as an additional layer under pants for my cold weather runs. I am ordering another pair b/c it has quickly become my favorite pair of shorts to wear alone. It stays exactly where it is supposed to without riding up and looks and feels fantastic!! Love that I have more color choices!!!

                      These are the best shorts! I now own three pairs, and they are the only shorts I wear to run in. The inseam is the perfect length so that it hits in a spot on my leg that is both comfortable and flattering. I have not had any problems with them riding up like I have had with other shorts in the past.

                          My #1 priority for running shorts is that it has to have at least one pocket that is big enough to carry an iPhone. I was floored to find a compression short that met this criteria. Not only that, but it is actually located in a convienient spot. Oh yeah, they are also super comfortable. I originally bought these to wear under my running pants in the winter to help keep my thighs warm but have used them on there own a few times during this mild fall here in Eastern PA. These must have been designed by a woman!

                            I've been looking for shorts or a skort for the past few years that actually stays down and covers my thighs so I don't get that awful [*] rub. I've tried others, many others. But this is the first one that I'll actually buy again! I ran 7 miles today (the longest yet in these shorts) and I didn't need to bend down and pull them down at all! I'm getting ready for a third marathon and I will be buying more of these

                              Despite logging a marathoner's miles, I have a very curvy lower half. This is the most comfortable pair of shorts I've ever found, for a few reasons. First, no pinching at the waist or hem - the elastic lies flat (even if your stomach isn't). They ride up a teeny bit on the leg, but otherwise stay put. They're long enough to help stop thigh chafe. They're also long enough to prevent you from feeling scandalous while running around in compression shorts. The pocket is serviceable for compression shorts - you can easily carry ID or some cash for a post-run pit stop...maybe also a single car or house key. These have made me a believer and they're now my go-to shorts for speedwork, long runs, and racing.

                                These shorts are perfect for running - not too tight, but not too loose! Great for those of use whose upper thighs touch :)

                                  These shorts are the best thing ever for running! I run 60-70 miles each week. Wearing these compression shorts is like running with just an extra layer of skin between you and the elements. You may sweat, but the fabric doesn't show sweat marks. The compression holds your legs "in" and they don't rub against each other at all. The stomach is equally held tightly, but comfortably, in place. Additionally, the side zipper is a great place to put your car key. These shorts are fantastic!

                                    I really like the feel of this material, but I didn't get the right size. I normally wear a Large in running bottoms and ordered the same for these. I found they were way too loose for 'compression' shorts! I think they would have been great in the right size, but I will have to return them. I recommend ordering a size smaller than you usually order, as they are supposed to feel tight! I look forward to trying them out in a Medium!

                                      I love the fit, however next time I would go a size smaller. I think with my weight lose I misjudged my true size. I do love that the shorts cover my "mom belly", I didn't feel any jiggle when running, I was VERY comfrotable.

                                        I just wore this in my very first half marathon. I am sooo glad i bought them. Fit very well, very comfortable, and even look good. I am a little curvy and felt very confident in these. Definitely going to buy a couple more pairs!

                                        I've worn these shorts for years....love them, until this time. With my last order in Aug 2009, I noticed they've changed the seeming on these shorts. More seems---more scratchy seems. I've never gotten abrasions before and it's all right along the new seams.

                                          I bought a pair of RRS compression shorts a few years ago. I run 4-5 days per week year round. That first pair of shorts is still part of my gear and they have held up wonderfully through many hours of running and many washes! This most recent purchase of another pair of compression shorts are even better quality! Comfortable, no rubbing/chafing, and supportive fit. The hidden pocket is also a nice feature. I plan to buy additional pairs of these shorts! I have had Nike and Under Armor Compression shorts and RRS brand is bar far the best and reasonably priced.

                                            I needed a compression short that was thin enough for Texas heat but not too thin. After reading all of the reviews, I was sold! I wish I would have discovered these years ago! Best. Compression. Short. Ever! These work well under my running shorts to avoid the dreaded thigh rub. I am 5'4 and wear a size 8 and ordered the medium. I'm still in awe at how soft they feel and they don't squeeze me like a boa constricter. I can't say enough about these and will be buying another pair soon. Bought these for the upcoming 2014 Hood to Coast Relay in Oregon.

                                              I have heavier thighs and like that these shorts give me support, yet the bottom band doesn't cut into my legs and make an awkward bulge. Love them! Wish the pocket were in the back rather than on the side, however.

                                                Super comfy shorts! I was worried because they don't have elastic around the bottoms, but they don't ride up at ALL! I deducted one star only because I prefer to have the key pocket in the center of the back of the shorts rather than on the side.

                                                    I love these shorts. They are the perfect length and they do not budge when running in them or just at the gym. My only thing is the string should be longer because I do have hips and I lose the string occasionally so I tied the ends together.

                                                      These are the best running spandex ever. Perfect length, ideal zipper pocket (ones in the back always bounced when I had gels in them), very comfortable. I have worn these in 2 marathons, and plan to train in them all summer for my fall marathon.

                                                        I read other reviews before buying, & agree that these are not a true compression short. They are comfortable, soft & don't ride up on the legs during exercise. I love the little side zipper pocket! Only con for me is the drawstrings inside are not very long, but other than that, I really like them.

                                                          Awesome shorts, and very light and durable. However, I highly recommend sizing down - I am 5'3" and 125, so I almost always wear a small in bottoms. However, a small in these, while comfortable, does not compress one bit.

                                                          So if you're just looking for regular bike shorts, order your normal size, but if you want any type of compression, order a size down. I still wear these for easy runs, and walking the dog, but for hard runs/races, I stick to my Under Armour!

                                                          Not a bad short, but not as much compression as the moving comfort short. Good thing is it does not ride up into your crotch like the moving comfort. Nice length

                                                          I am definetely a woman who "needs some extra coverage!" Haha, but I just look at it as more to love! However, sometimes you just feel like compressing things a little. That's why these Women's RRS Velocity 6" Compression shorts are right up my alley! Whenever I wear them, things feel way more compact. And you should see the stares! For all those "large and in charge" women out there who occasionally feel the need to compress, I highly recommend these!

                                                          You know...I'd give these shorts four or five stars, but RRS hasn't had them in stock (M or L) for MONTHS and I haven't been able to try them out. I have three pairs of the last version and love them. So come on RRS, these are great shorts for women who don't want to wear capri's, but who need something more than a 4" inseam that rides up.

                                                          I've worn these shorts for years....love them, until this time. With my last order in Aug 2009, I noticed they've changed the seeming on these shorts. More seems---more scratchy seems. I've never gotten abrasions before and it's all right along the new seams.

                                                          My fav shorts. I just wish the pocket was in the back seam.... I dont like anything literally on my hip bone. They dont ride up and are the perfect price!

                                                          This is exactly what I needed for long, hot runs. Absolutely no riding up or chafing in these shorts. I prefer these to the Under Armour which seemed a little thin.

                                                          These shorts are a great value -- simple and comfortable. I like the pocket sewn at an angle into the seam. I hope these are still available if/when my pair wears out!

                                                          Very comfortable shorts. If you want a short that doesn't ride up - purchase these.

                                                          These are my favorite shorts for hot and humid runs! They don't ride up. I bought a size up because I don't like them too tight. They are high waisted but I roll them at the waist and they are perfect. The 6 inch inseam is perfect....no chafing or showing too much skin.

They have a little waist pocket for my phone if I need it. Total perfection. If you suffer from chub-rub like I do, stop pulling your shorts out from your crotch and buy these!

                                                          If you have thicker thighs and have trouble with most shorts, these are your ticket to a comfy chafe-free run. The length is perfect, prevents riding up and absolutely prevents chafing. Fabric is very soft but durable. Believe me, I gave these things a work out. Did most of my long training runs while training for an Ironman, and changed into them in T2 during the race - made the run SO much more comfortable, even though it was pouring rain. My only nit is that the stitching on the key pocket on one end was not strong enough, so with repeated opening/closing of the zipper it has come undone. Fix that and you've got a winner!

                                                          Count me in among the ladies who love these shorts! I have never owned a pair of compressions shorts as good as these. They fit true to size, are very comfortable around the waist, and do NOT ride up. I am 5'6" and a curvy hipped 8, and the medium fits me perfectly. I am ordering at least one more pair, just so I always have one clean. Please keep these around!

                                                          Michelle has taken the words right out of my mouth. I'll also add that the waistband fits comfortably at the waist and not below the hipbones for us "mature" women.

                                                          I LOVE these shorts! They feel great on -- just the right amount of compression, not too tight. Great for running or for a workout at the gym. They don't ride up and they provide good coverage for my thighs (which are not the most slender you've ever seen, but are very muscular). Besides all that, they look great -- and will make you look smooth and sleek. I have one pair and I'm ordering too more. Just wish they came in some other color -- dark blue maybe or dark green?

                                                          I can't say enough about how awesome these shorts are. I have done nearly all of my marathon training in them, and they have held up remarkably well. No chafing anywhere, ever. Very flattering, even with my post baby jiggly thighs. I only wish they came in other colors, like burgundy, forest green, navy blue and charcoal grey. I'd have one in every color. If you buy these, you won't be dissapointed. You may never run in another pair of shorts ever again.
