Good pair of compression shorts?

hey all,

I am looking for advice on a good pair of compression shorts to buy. I currently use the Under Armour Core Shorts Pro which i really like, but I am looking for something alittle longer in the inseam. I am thinking about trying a pair of Skins Half tights but was wondering if you had other suggestions??

Thanks
Derrick

Re: Good pair of compression shorts?

I've got SKINS shorts and BSc pants, and I like the BSc a lot more. They seem to give more compression and more assistance with recovery. If you're at all in between sizes, I'd recommend going with the smaller size so you get more compression.

While I agree with Eric's above statement regarding BSc compression quality over Skins, the Skins half tights have a longer inseam than the BSc full quad shorts.

Re: Good pair of compression shorts?

Does BSc have US pricing listed anywhere? I'd never heard of them before this thread.

I just use the UnderArmor

EDIT:
Re: BSc- they claim "Has been shown to increase vertical jump height by 2.4cm instantly"
I find that hard to believe- are these like a squat suit or bench shirt?

Re: Good pair of compression shorts?

Why not just wear the walmart ones underneath your shorts? Work great and only cost about 5-6 bucks a piece!!!!!!


Btw, I do have pairs from all manufacturers(under armour, fila, nike, walmart's brand), and they all feel the same to me.

The UA core shorts are very tight and provide good support and compression, they arent like bike shorts....
