I would never wear these as a primary layer, but as a base layer with running shorts over it works great. I run about 120 miles per month and have become a believer in compression. It simply works as advertised. You have more stamina and recovery is better. Providing stability and compression makes the muscles work better and helps move lactic acid out post-workout. I even wear compression socks. Yes, they do look stupid. However, they really help. I predict that many more runners will be wearing compression socks and shorts in the future. There is no downside and a ton of upside.

My Husband bought these and a number of others to replace a pair he recently lost. This pair was by far the best of all the others and the only one he kept. He is into powerlifting and strongman and lifts some crazy weights. He said having these under his shorts or a squat suit actually made a significant difference and the length was not all the way down to the knee like the picture which is good so it didn't interfere with knee wraps and actually helped alot to slip the squat suit on because the material is not "sticky" or silky.

Hope this is helpful as most of the reviews are by endurance athletes for this kind of under shorts. If your in between sizes get the smaller. The only negative he said was they compress "everything" so keep your work outs short on the days you wear them if you plan on having more kids. haha

I am 6'1" tall and am carrying about 30 extra pounds of weight. These fit great! The length is perfect--to the top of my knees (32" inseam). The legs are firm but not too tight. The bottom seams are slightly loose so they don't dig in and cut my circulation. I really like the weight of the material. It's a mid-weight. Slightly heavier than most summer shorts. Should be just right for my winter indoor tennis. The shorts are a brighter yellow than shown in the photo. Compares to a standard "smiley face" yellow. It looks mustard in the photo because it was shot on a black mannequin. Definitely a base short.

I'm disabled with two spinal injuries, I must wear compression shorts to bed or I wake up with a lot of pain. These are by far the best compression shorts I have ever had, they may cost a little more but I don't care, these shorts are just short of a miracle. Thank you Daniel of Nebraska.

These are indeed real compression shorts. The best method of determining the compression ability of any short is the nylon/spandex ratio. Any short with a spandex ratio above 20% is a good compression short. The Cramer short has a ratio of 75% nylon/25% spandex which gives a tight compression. I would not wear them alone running or in sport, but under shorts or uniform as with any compression garment. I am very happy with these shorts.

Unlike many so called "compression" shorts, the Stromgren actually provide compression.

Pros:
- Good fit. I purchased the LARGE, and it fit well (as expected). Length to 1 inch above the knee, as advertised.
>>> FYI: I'm 5'9", 35" at navel, 39" glutes, 24" thighs

- Good (well, reasonable) compression. The fabric is thick / heavy enough to actually provide compression. E.g., the fabric is definitely heavier / thicker than what you'd find on a typical moisture-wicking athletic underwear.

For those of you with long memories: these Stromgren shorts do NOT provide nearly as much compression as the old-school "Bike" brand compression shorts. But they do better than most.

These compression shorts fit as expected and feel very comfortable. The material is moisture-wicking, so it handles sweat and other moisture well. The elastic waistband prevents any irritation and rashes at my waist, and the knee-length design prevents the shorts from riding up while I wear them. The compression it provides at my hamstrings, groin, and quads is superb!
