- Q & A
A little bit disapponting
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I bought these for longer distances as I find that traditional shorts chafe my legs, and I get on better with compression shorts.
The Good: These also come with a load of pockets round the waistband that are great for storing gels, phones etc... and the compression is nice (if you like that kind of thing).
The Bad: In spite of being a compression short, these have an inner brief and I found that the elastic on the inner brief chafes - I may take the scissors to them. In addition I am a bit disappointed by the quality - there are many seams both on the legs and the waist belt and in spite of being 'flat locked' they are quite bulky and cause irritation on longer runs which was exactly what I was trying to avoid.
Bottom line: I find myself using cheaper / simpler lycra shorts in preference as they are more comfortable :(
