2XU Men's Compression Tights
Great overall product. My only problem with it is the reflective material on it started peeling off after the second wash. I don't really care I rather it didn't have it to start with. None the less it should last longer than 2 washes

I purchased these because I am a no-gi grappler, and I wanted something to add friction during grappling sessions and provide a barrier against direct skin to skin contact. As far as the compression and quality, it is an outstanding product that both fits well, and helps improve recovery time.
My only gripe with this product is that the graphics on the side are screen printed, and thus wear off during intense grappling. I'm sure this is not an issue for runners, but just my observation. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and would gladly buy again.

I use these to train legs. They fit right and feel amazing.

Great Compression for Recovery
Provides a great amount of compression, and I feel it has really helped for recovery after a tough run. The material is very strong but does move with you at the same time.

Legs never felt better after wearing these for the first time. Times were better as well. My only concern is shorts or no shorts on top?

Just got back into running about 2.5 months ago. Hadn't run since college about 20 years ago. Tried these out yesterday under my running shorts on a 6 mile run and today on a shorter (2.5 mile) run going for speed. Noticed a huge difference in reduction of muscle fatigue on the longer run. Not as big of a difference on the short run but I did run my fastest 2.5 miler so far with them on. Excellent quality. After I was done with both runs, wore the 2XU Compression calf sleeves for recovery. Noticed much less soreness after the long run and no soreness after the short run. Highly recommend them. If you are on the borderline for the sizing chart, go with the smaller size.

Looks cool - the end
Heard the hype and spent the dough to try these out. I've heard great things about medial compression - but these just feel like heavy under armour pants. Wore them during a 10K and for a few hours afterwards and couldn't wait to get them off. They didn't breathe well at all and I didn't feel any different afterwards. I thought the silver pattern was functional somehow but it turns out it's just a cheap screen print. Will definitely be trying to return these and try something else.

I use my 2XU Compression Tights for everyday casual walking. I would also jog in them but [$] a pair is not worth (wearing out the super smooth durable stretchy sexy fabric). They are very fashionable if you don't mint being stared at by the public eye. The seams are flat, the fabric super smooth and light but durable and they make your skinny figure look really appealing to the eye. NOT SO GREAT: This product needs to make durable flat, very stretchy waistband instead of the drawstring cord. SKINS has this but the band is still a bit weak and slips off. 2XU fabric seems to stay up better but SKINS has a better price of $80. I reccomend a flat band design with a drawstring on the outerside just in case you want to tighten the wasit area so nothing moves.

Best compression tights I've ever tried
Wore these during a huge run and felt no soreness afterwards. Felt good as soon as I put them on. Have tried some other compression tights before but these are by far the the best.
