I love these shorts. They are the most comfortable compression shorts I've ever owned. You can seriously use them for just about anything. They are soft, don't ride up and dry really fast. I use them to climb, run, play volleyball in or just to lounge around the house when it's too hot but you have roommates so you can't walk around the house naked. I really enjoy these shorts the pattern on the sides is kind of weird but other than that I love them!
