    I wore these recently for a half marathon and enjoyed them overall. The length is great and prevents the shorts from riding up on my fairly muscular thighs (a common a problem for me with compression shorts.) The waistband hits lower than what I like, but since they stay in place I can deal with that. The pocket fits a couple of energy gels so I put it to good use. I am 5'5" and 120lbs and the small fits just right.

    I've been wearing this short and its update for at least 6 years. This year, the dropped waist and rear zip pocket were a total disappointment. As a distance runner who wears a hydration belt, having the band on the short sit low makes this short very impractical. I work at a running store and coach a running group. I have had several women either return the new short, or not buy them at all because they don't fit they way they used to. Also, the fabric has gotten very heavy and running in the DC heat and humidity for 20+ miles is bad enough without wearing a short that is so thick. Any chance you have a few pair of the old model in a Large, that you'd be willing to sell me?

      Great waistband, supportive. Think enough that they stay in place and hide imperfections.

        These shorts are SO soft. I wear them on long runs and don't have to worry about them moving around on me, or chaffing. Love them!

          Based on some of the reviews, I sized up (I'm borderline anyway based on the manufacturer.) I love the way they fit, and they provide good coverage whether I'm running or doing squats.

            I use the short for long distance running. It is very comfrtable, has perfect lenght and is not very tight.
            I don't have to pull up the waist.

                  These are great compression shorts. Nice on thigh room, not too tight. I don't like wearing shorts on my hips, and that's the only problem I have with these, they keep sliding down and I'm always pulling them up to my waist. I'd love these with a band on the waistline. After trying on numerous running shorts, this is the only short for running and walking that I've found to be non-binding and comfortable.

                  These are the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. They move with me no matter what sport I'm playing. I wear them under shorts and on their own. They wash up great and last forever. I have owned several pairs for years. I have nothing negative to say about them. I wear them when it's 90 degrees and till it's 55.

                    I've tried all brands of compression shorts. This material allows fluid movement while supporting thighs and butt. Love the low waist cut which provides MUCH greater flexibility and comfort than the higher waist. Material is soft and sturdy. I don't even wear an over-covering short with these. They are awesome.
