These Skins compression half-tights are really comfortable and do support the Quads, Glutes and Hamstring well. At 45cm long they come to just above the knee and so support the whole upper leg well. They are well made, clearly a quality piece clothing and are anatomically designed for comfort, with vented areas in the back and the crotch. I started wearing Skins compression half-tights to help my running, it's hard to quantify to what extent they have improved my times, but I do seem to suffer fewer injuries when I wear them, which is no bad thing. They're also comfortable enough to wear during the day whilst recovering. They are also completely opaque, I wear them under shorts for decency but others I know do wear them on their own.

If you do suffer a groin strain (common in runners) the support they provide really does help to reduce the recovery time. I've had mine for over 12 months and have washed them many times and they still look like new and have maintained compression. As a runner I can definitely recommend them to reduce injury and recovery time and perhaps to even improve performance. They're slightly pricey but definitely worth the investment.

used these shorts on the ergo and instantly set an awesome PB, not sure if its pure psycological but they certainly work. they wash well and fit very well, quite comfortable despite fitting tight. they work very well for recovery, a must have for any sportsman who is going to be testing there legs.

Just bought a pair and immediately went for my normal 12km run. All I can say is that the running shorts are excellent and do exactly what they say on the box. I am now planning on buying another pair as back up!

The shorts - like the tights and tops - are marketed to improve circulation, and support muscle fibre recruitment. Whilst that might be true of the long tights, this is a little hard to believe for the shorts as they come just above the knee. However, I can see a role for supporting the quads, glutes and hamstrings, also keeping them at reasonable temperature. Although they are made of the same material as the long tights, they feel as though they have greater compression across the quads and hamstrings.

I bought a pair of Skins shorts - I already have Skins long tights, recovery tights, and top - after my quad and lower back tightened up during a run whilst I was wearing the usual type of shorts. I wore the Skins shorts three days later on my lunchtime 2.5 mile loop; it was 30 seconds quicker with the same perceived effort and heartrate and, no tightness. Placebo or coincidence? Maybe. Although Skins now sell excellent cycling shorts, I sometimes use these shorts for Spin classes or commuting to work on the bike when lack of padding is not an issue.

They last well despite stories of losing compression after 20 washes. A good buy for the gym and outdoor training runs.

I don't know if it's the science behind it or just a nice push on my mind, but this tight improved my Ironman training.
