Solid Compression Race Short
I'll start this review by providing my definition of a compression race short. Its a short made to use as the outermost garment in a race. Not underware. I have been looking for a solid compression running short / Tri short that was longer in the length and felt that this one would fit the bill.
Pros: Fit, Color (Black), Cut, rear hip pockets are all great!
Like with the Nike Tri Top, You feel like a Nike Sponsored Pro with it on. Overall I see myself using this short to train Long Course with. Rear pockets can hold 1 Gu's per pocket without bouncing out on the bike/run and could hold a sincle car key pretty easy. It can also carry a PowerAid Zero Drops bottle (with wrapper pealed off and cleaned, it makes a handy small water bottle that can be tossed or reused). Compression is fit enough to even hold small bottles in the front without shifting.
First: The cut in the front, that covers the chamois, gives you a bit of a camel in need of a pedicure look. But being you are in the water, on the bike or hopefully running faster than those around you, it may not matter. And to be fair, many other brands have similar looks.
Second: You need to be a fan of the movie Wall Street, as the fabric does have a bit of sheen to it. And I’m not talking about images of Charlie screen printed into the fabric. These shorts actually looked polished (like the suits they wore in that move). ! In a way, it’s a cool look and I wish they had a matching top to go with it. But you need to be cool with shiny shorts if you have never owned a pair.
Third – Like I said above, there is not a matching top for these, If Nike had a matching top I would use this as my race kit. Side note: I ordered the Nike Tri top, and the look and fabric is very, very different. So if your spouse is the kind of person that would point that out with a smerk, roll her eyes, or just give you that something is not right stare while looking at the chamois before you hit the door, then you may want to get a Tri "kit" under the same style name and make sure that the fabrics match..
Fourth – And I’ll start by saying that SwimOutlet is taking care if this by sending a new pair out. Is the stitching in the legs. I used them once and the inside seam of one leg started to unravel. I am hopeful that its just that one pair and that the next will have solid construction.
Overall: For the price, its a good buy.. Shiny, but good.
Fit: Feels true to size

Not a good fit...
Returned shorts, they are cut to low for my comfort, especially across the back as you bend over. Appreciate the easy return process, will continue to shop your site.
Fit: Feels too small
Nike Triathlon short
Great product, (I am not a Nike fan - purchased based on price for a back up) held true to the description, fits perfectly and is now my first choice. Still not a Nike believer
Love the 9 inch. Hips seem to run a little low, but it's a sacrifice worth making for longer cut thighs. Great Material! Love the color/design. 6"2 215lbs size Large.
Nike Tri short
Decent quality but runs a little small from crotch to waist.
