The 2XU Compression Shorts are one of the most popular products on the market, but don't just take our word for it. Heavy.com loves these shorts as well. They're great for a variety of activities, including lifting, aerobics, running, walking, cycling, climbing, hiking, and all water sports. So no matter what you're into, we promise you'll love these shorts.
These shorts are pretty expensive and also run slightly small. But if you can manage to get these in a size that fits correctly, man are they comfortable.
Fit: They use a drawstring rather than an elastic band to keep them snug around your waist, and they'll feel nice and soft as you wear them to run, cycle, or lift. The 70 Denier knit construction provides 360 degree consistent, yet powerful, pressure. And the optimal compression provides support and protection to glutes, abductors, IT band, quads, and hamstrings.
Fabric: The Invista LYCRA fabric provides certified gradient compression. The moisture-wicking, antibacterial fabric will keep you dry as you train and is both breathable and lightweight. And, on top of all of that, these compression shorts are machine washable.
Price: Though these are a bit pricier than most of the other options on this list at $35, they're definitely one of the most comfortable. We definitely suggest giving these a try.
