Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott "West" Comfort and Support
I purchased this product to use for umpiring baseball. The compression shorts provide excellent support for the positioning action required during the game. They are cool and comfortable enough to wear for multiple games in the hot Florida sun. No direct hits yet but I do feel confident that the cup will provide substantial protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lp5 a must for an active lifestyle.
The Shock Doctor compression shorts are really relaxed to wear. They make you feel well supported and are more comfortable than a couple of the other leading brand's same product. I liked the longer thigh area covering more of the hamstring area than others also. I really didn't need the cup, but the price with the cup was better than the other brands. I would purchase more of these shorts but I really don't need 3 or 4 cups. The product without a cup would be great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vaya43 Shock Doctor Adult Comp. Shorts with Bioflex Cup
These are both very well made products. The cup is very light and comfortable. It fits better than the previous cups i've had. It does stick out quite a bit however do to the compression shorts not holding the cup tight to you body. The only issue I have is with the sizing on the compression shorts. I read every review I could find and was still not sure what size to order. I'm 5'10 about 170lbs and I wear a 32-33 in Levi's and a 34 waste in Dickies. My waste actually measures close to 35" so based on shock doctors size chart (Large 34-36) I should be a large. So I ordered a large and the waste is very tight while the legs are loose and baggy. I'm wanting to try the medium to see how they fit in comparison. I wear a large in the Nike compression shorts and they fit me well. I would recommend these to someone needing compression shorts that also hold a cup but I think the sizing and shape could be improved on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by regal2465 Good product
Just got this and skated/hockey once. The most comfortable cup I've ever worn (52 y.o. hockey player). Very happy with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BT339 Exceeded my expectations
These shorts came highly reccommended by fellow umpires. They are very comfortable and clearly outweighs the alternative. I'm a firm believer, you get what you what you pay for. The shorts are pricey, I hope they last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gyersm Good purchase
The xl compression shorts for my 12 year old were too tight at the waist. Even tough he is only 108 pounds. We chose to buy the small adult shorts and they are comfortable. Had to spend extra on getting a child's cup. Overall we are happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Learnit2012 Mid-Atlantic States Tough Mudder 2013 - Compression Shorts & Cup a Life Saver
I don't know if you've heard of this grueling 13 mile, 3 hr 30 min, and 22 obstacle journey that tests your mind and body. During this event, your product gave me warmth, protection, and support while crawling through tunnels, traversing logs, sliding over walls, low crawling through mud...all safely and comfortably attributed to the Shock Doctor's Compression Shorts and Cup. I highly recommend this product to all thrill seekers and it is a must have for Tough Mudder participants!
