Sub RX Men's Graduated Compression Leggings

Get your blood pumping and perform at your best with Sub RX Leggings.


Targeted compression. Greater endurance

They provide greater compression to areas where your circulation is at its slowest, aiding blood flow back to the heart and supplying your muscles with more oxygen. As a result, you'll feel more powerful and be able to keep performing for longer.


Breathable, high-wicking fabric

Constructed from the most advanced compression fabric available (Lycra Sport Energy), Sub RX leggings are highly breathable and excellent at wicking moisture away from the skin, helping you stay cool and dry during intense exercise. The Lycra fabric's superb shape retention also ensures that your baselayer will hold its compression fit time after time, wash after wash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality product at a good price 4 Aug 2012
Colour Name:Black/Orange| Size Name:Medium|Verified Purchase
I decided to buy these leggings after reading about the benefits of compression leggings for runners and the reviews of this product on amazon.co.uk.

I'm about a 32" waist/29" leg and I ordered the medium size. They fit snugly and there's a little bit of 'extra' in the leg for those of you with longer legs than me. They seem to be well made and have suffered no apparent ill-effects from being washed.

I found that the first time I used them they felt quite tight in the back of the knee, because that's where the compression is tight. I didn't find it as noticeable the second time around and I'm sure I'll get used to it. I found the compression to be really helpful for my thighs, where I have tended to suffer a little bit of soreness when running longer distances in shorts. I didn't feel any soreness at all after running in these, so I'm delighted with my purchase.

You could spend a lot more on the premium brands for this type of product but I'm perfectly happy with my SUB RX leggings. I would get them again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good! 25 Jun 2012
By Stevain
Colour Name:Black/Orange| Size Name:Small|Verified Purchase
Bought these after many hours of research & reading reviews.
I wasn't really up for paying 70+ for other brand names, so I went for these.
Size wise, I'm a 30/31" waist & about 5ft9. These fit me VERY well, not too tight, but perhaps a little on the long side. The waist band sits higher up than I thought it would. However, the waist band comes with a tie, so its not a big issue at all.
Awesome product, great price!

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality. Great value. 11 Jun 2012
Colour Name:Black/Orange| Size Name:X-Large|Verified Purchase
Product was delivered next day and is very good quality. I have a couple of other compression garments by leading brands and this is easily as good at a much better price. I wear it at night for recovery after running and it has a good level of compression. I also purchased the long sleeve top.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value for the money, with some caveats 7 Feb 2014
Colour Name:Black/Orange| Size Name:Medium|Verified Purchase
About me:
------------
In terms of sports, I do mainly running and kick boxing. I have used compression garments from Nike (Pro Combat line), Adidas (Techfit line), Under Armor and 2XU. I consider 2XU the golden standard of compression gear. With regards to Sub Sports I own both an RX line top and bottom and have been using them 3-4 times a week for about a month at the time of writing this review.

Size:
-----
A lot of people reviewing Sub Sports compression clothing believe it to be comparatively small in size. They seem to miss the point of this type of garment: COMPRESSION! Compared to low-end products from Nike and Adidas (Under Armor), Sub Sport fit is tighter. Sub Sports length compared to Nike and Under Armor is considerably longer (which is great if you move a lot). Compared to the golden standard of compression gear, 2XU, fit and size is about the same(!) I would conclude that sizing is accurate and one should buy according to the sizing chart. I returned a size 'L' which was crazy lose, for a size 'M' which was near identical to my 2XU size 'MT'.

Compression:
-----------------
Compression compared to lower end brands (sorry it may seem crazy) like Nike and Adidas, Under Armor is very good. Compared to 2XU it's at least nearly as good.

Wearing them:
-------------------
There are some strange design choices with Sub Sports. Specifically there is a rough seam that runs on the inside/back side of the knee. I imagine this seam will cause skin rashes during longer runs -during my own runs it is at least an annoyance. The same goes for the top where a similar seam runs inside the armpit: I do kick boxing and when punching this seam is really disturbing me because of the friction it generates.

5.0 out of 5 stars just as good as expensive brands!! 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
I normally buy only skins a200/a400 compression tights as they have been spot on , I run approx. 16-20 miles a week and now the cold weather is kicking in time for the tights to come back out.
I tried these sub sports today and they were just as good as my branded tights , nice compression , nice feel and no rubbing etc,
not sure how they will last but 1st impressions highly recommend .

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT PRODUCT GREAT PRICE 25 Nov 2013
By David
Verified Purchase
I have used two other more expensive brands and these compare very favourably. The material is smooth and does not chafe. The stitching is excellent. They are a little tighter than the other two brands but this gives better compression. My only complaint is the compression at the back of the knees which is slightly rough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compression at a greater price 2 Oct 2012
Colour Name:Black/Orange| Size Name:Medium|Verified Purchase
I've used a few compression products before from other makes like 2XU and Compression and these tights easily sits besides them when it comes to quality fit and function...but at a highly reduced price in comparison.

If you've used compression wear before then you'll know what to look for, if you haven't then use the size chart provided, which was spot on for me, and expect them to be tight...that's the whole idea! After a while you'll nearly forget it's there, you'll just have this reassuring feeling that it's working away.

The tights have a nice length for activity and high waist area which is great for all sports and recovery, and the mesh is just in the right spots. Reflective lettering is also I great feature especially when running and cycling.

If you're not sure about compression, or you're just after a great well priced product don't hesitate to buy any of the range.
