Hi - can anyone recommend some 2 in 1 running shorts with an inner compression type layer? I always used to get the under armour chafe free shorts but looks like they've been discontinued.

Nike Dri-fit are superb.

Lululemon running shorts are excellent but I think only one shop in the uk at the minute and they are pretty expensive - hubbie swears by them.

+1 for the Nike dri-fit ones. I got my pair in sports direct for about 15 quid.

I've got some asics 2 in1 which I like.  Not sure of the compression qualities though: They're not particularly tight.

+1 For Nike Dri Fit, I swear by them and now cant run without them. I also use the Asics 2 in 1 shorts. They are decent..

Another +1 for Nike Dri Fit, they are brill

Why not just wear Tri shorts under them? That way you can wear any shorts you want.

I use Karrimor from Sports Direct  2 in 1s as cant run in normal shorts without serious chaffing.

Good idea Redjeep though.

Also have some 2 in 1 shorts from Decathalon that provide good support from the inside pair.

You're paying twice then though aren't you and tri shorts aren't cheap.

Thanks for all the recommendations...think I'll try the nike ones...although not that many 7" 2-in-1 dry-fit ones available...

just go with lycra running shorts - chafe free zone always and no extra material to make you hotter than you need

Having tried numerous loose fit shorts with disasterous chaffing I now just stich with Nike Tech tight Dri-Fit shorts. No problems at all.

I did try the Nike 2 in 1's and they were ok but a bit longer than I would like and a bit too loose on the outer layer.

I really like the look of the nike dri fit 2 in 1's camo on sports direct. Problem is I have a nice pair of shorts already and they have two side pockets (which is handy for my phone and mp3 player) and the Nikes don't

 with my 2in1 (karrimor) shorts I finds the mesh lining a bit loose so I pull some of it up and tie it tight inside the drawstring- which solves the prob for me. The other option is budgie smugglers and no lining- which is neither cool nor 'cool'.

i must invest in some proper kit- but until then it is a case of make do.

This might be a stupid question,

But I see you can buy shorts from 4 inch to 9 inch.

What does this mean?

25/06/2013 at 13:00

Its a bragging thing- its all sbout how much material you need for coverage. I am obviously kidding. 

25/06/2013 at 18:44

What no 12 inch?

Now I am obviously lying.

No really what does it refer to?  

25/06/2013 at 20:12

I imagine it is length of leg from the crotch but ive nit googled it

It's definitely the length but not sure where they measure it from though.
