Product Highlight: CompGear Compression Shorts

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, CompGear’s Compression Short’s have recently hit the functional fitness market.

Unlike other compression shorts, CompGear’s are also designed to offer specialised protection for athletes during functional fitness movements.

Three pieces of strategically-placed padding are located in certain areas in the shorts to minimize irritation and bruising in your thights and buttocks region during exercises like sit-ups, and olympic lifting from the hang position.

Here is a look at some of the main features of CompGear’s Compression Shorts:

  • Removable flexible EVA thigh and tailbone padding 
  • Breathable, moisture-wicking, quick-dry Nylon/Lycra blend
  • Crotch venting enhances comfort and breathability
  • Antimicrobial fabric treatment reduces sweat odors
  • Flat-lock stitching will not cause chafing or irritation

In the above video The Rx Review take a quick look at CompGear’s Compression Shorts, going over a number of the main features and comparing them to other basic compressions shorts on the market.

A pair of CompGear’s Compression Shorts sells for USD$50 and can be purchased from the CompGear website.
