Sub RX Men's Graduated Compression Top

Get your blood pumping with Sub RX – an innovative graduated compression baselayer that helps you perform at your best.


Targeted compression. Greater endurance

It provides 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 baselayers are highly breathable and excellent at wicking moisture away from the skin, helping you to stay cool and dry during intense exercise. The Lycra fabric’s excellent shape retention also ensures that your baselayer will hold its compression fit, time after time, wash after wash.

I'll admit straight away these come up small, but so do most manufacturers. Aside from this, these tops come up trumps in relation to cooling and compression; the rubberised hem keep it in place so this doesn't ride up like the more expensive brands such as X-Bionic or Under Armour. Last but not least; it looks great on, offering a very athletic silhouette - all I ask now is a larger colour range, i.e black with different colour piping scheme (blue, green, red, yellow - you get the hint)

Firstly, as most reviews have noted, this is a tight fit, but as its a compression top its meant to be, otherwise its just a pricey t-shirt.
Like most compression gear I'd suggest ordering one size bigger. I am a large in t-shirts, shirts etc and an XL one of these is a perfect fit, providing good uniform compression with not loose or pinched bits.
It is comfortable and I forget I'm wearing it after a few minutes.
The first one I got had to go back with a manufacturing error but it was quickly replaced by amazon and no further issues. I have other sub sports gear and it seems very well made stuff.
It says cold machine wash only, which seems like a recipe for skin problems, but I have not had any problems chucking it in with everything else at 30C

1) sellers service was excellent, no issues here.

2) product- I have a few other branded compression garments like under armour and champion, the usual size I wear is XL, so I thought I would give this brand a shot, I unfortunately I have to agree with other customers regarding the size issue, the xl was extremely small, despite its stretchiness it should have been labelled, small to medium, so I had it returned and opted for the biggest XXL, it has a better fit but still is too tight than I would ideally like. On another note, the silicon grip on the bottom is a great addition to these tops.

Top quality. The only issue is that you need to order a bit bigger size than you actually wear. Excellent customer service! Really happy with purchase. Will buy from the seller again. Well done!

I have Sub Cold tops and two of these. The Cold's have a better fit and feel. There is as seam on these that can irritate the armpit due to the venting zone added there. These are definitely tighter than the Colds but if you check the size guide on the page, you get an idea that you may need to go up a size - whereas I wouldn't with the cold. The arms are a little too long too. I wear them under a short sleeve top and have to fold them back on themselves. The silicone gripper works a treat.
The fabric and workmanship are first class. I consider myself a small/medium and find the medium about right. The Cold is brilliant but this one is great for the spring.

Great top for the price. I wish I had ordered a size bigger as it is a bit tight around the shoulders and becomes uncomfortable after a couple of hours.
I ordered a medium the same as my 2xu compression top which fits fine and is very comfortable even to wear all day for recovery or for doing weights and running.
Quality is very good for the price.
Can highly recommend but just remember the sizes do come up on the small side !
