• I use compression shorts for my workouts because I don't like how normal shorts ride-up when I'm doing floor exercises on my back. Most of my other "compression" shorts are more like spandex tights with little compression. These are the real deal. There is a moderate amount of compression, so it doesn't bind movement like when doing squats and lunges, and the waistband doesn't cut into your waistline. Leg seams don't ride up and the elastic doesn't bite into your legs. I have a 30" waist and normal sized thigh muscles. The medium fits me really well.
  • I love these things for biking. Never really enjoyed chamois much, so I'm not missing anything there. The fabric grabs nice without being too tight. What I'd love to see is a version of these in a cycling-bib format. Obviously the upper-body portion wouldn't need to be a compression fabric, but just something to help with the fact bike jerseys tend to ride up and racers eating my dust have to look at the small of my back as I ride away! Ah, a guy can dream. Back to reality... very comfortable. It took about 1.5 years, but I've finally worn 1 pair out on training. My 2nd pair for racing is holding up well and about to rotate into training duty. I just bought 2 more of these so I'm not in danger of having to do the laundry before going for a ride. I also got a pair of the full-legged version for cold weather, and it's just as awesome (obviously for colder weather, though not itself insulated at all, it helps).
  • I've been wearing compression shorts since 2011 when I started running and doing heavy squats. UA was the first brand and I fell in love. Over the years, their brand became more of just tight underwear with no compression. These things hold everything tight and give the support I've been looking for for years. They run a little long on me (stops just above the knees) but I don't mind. Usually my gym shorts and running shorts build up massive amounts of static cling but these don't. I own 3 pair now and will probably be buying more to replace the other brands I've bought over the years.
  • I started wearing these religiously as I train for my 1st Full Marathon in July. I put them on underneath my running shorts before every run, and keep them on for an additional 30-60 minutes afterwards. I can say wholeheartedly that they have dramatically improved my recovery time. My legs are rarely sore the next day after running 10 miles. These shorts really work to help your circulation and improve recovery. Highly recommended! One word of caution, if you are in between sizes order 1 size up. I have a 34" waist and opted for size Large.
  • I'm what you would call a clydesdale mountain biker. Correct fitting shorts with pads that were comfortable were almost non existent. My wife joked a bit about me getting bibs but appreciates she no longer has to see my ass hanging out when she is behind me . Could care less about my buddies ,if they're behind me they are going to slow. Honestly the straps over the shoulders gave me some pause before the ride but I thought to myself I've tolerated way worse . 5 miles in to my first ride my wife asked how they felt and my only thought was I didn't even notice them. Then I realized how much I loved them because they weren't rolled up at the waist, the bands weren't digging into my thighs and transition in and out of the saddle was seamless. I'm not saying this is the best brand out there cause it's the only one of I tried but they have my size , they are very comfortable and the price is very reasonable. I bought 2 pairs and I'll likely buy 2 more . Hope this review helps someone. I have the 3xl I'm 5 '10 with a 44-46 waist. I move pretty fast on single tracks for a large mammal!
  • My order arrived today so I put these on and went for a ride. I put more than 10k miles a year in on road bikes. I’ve tried a lot of clothing brands - some horrible some excellent. Never had Ceroti before today. For form, fit and comfort of these Ceroti bib shorts I will just say this: I immediately ordered another pair. For what I paid for these shorts, they are tremendous value. I expect them to prove durable based on what I see so far
  • I got a 3XL and it fits me like a perfect glove. I'm much larger than your average cyclist at 6'4" 296lb but I like the support on the core over just shorts alone. The padding is ample as well. I also have a 3xl club fit jersey from them and it fits me very well too. Their club fit is the looser fit, they also sell a race fit for you thin guys :)Very helpful staff to, if you have any questions reach out to them, they respond quickly.

  • I'm a bigger guy. I ride a hardtail MTB on Western PA trails. My chamois drops quicker than the Dow after a Trump tweet and I needed a solution. And these bibs did the trick. I'm 6'2 260. I ordered a 3xl. I have no reference point to compare the fitment to but the bibs are very comfortable, not overly tight on the upper thigh. Everything that has a place stays in place. No twisting, pinching or bunching. I'm impressed. So far, I've ridden 20 miles of dirt trails and they've been unbelievably great.Standard padded shorts are ok but this product was a game changer for me. My only minor complaint is that the shorts stop above the knee. I would prefer a somewhat longer product. That's my fault not Ceroti's. I'll make this purchase again.
  • This is a thicker material than others I've tried. Neck is not as tight as the body, really well designed...it's a very low mock T. Feels great for winter running in Indiana below 20F. Size is tight, but that's the idea. This would not be comfortable to wear all day, just for workputs.
  • First of all, I have been a loyal customer of CompressionZ ever since they started here on Amazon.com. They are a great company with amazing customer service and products. I have quite a few of their products including short sleeve shirts, leggings, and compression shorts. One thing that people should know is that the CompressionZ gear in not fashion gear. These shirts, shorts, etc. are all serious compression garments. In other words, they REALLY COMPRESS. They are tight fitting and work extremely well and the mesh in the underarms is an outstanding feature for comfort. They are durable, well made, and backed up by a darn good company. I highly recommend this long sleeve shirt to compress, and to keep you warm in the cold (as a base layer) and cooler in the heat. As others have noted in their reviews, you might want to go up a size if you are more comfortable with loose fitting garments.
