I bought this item to help me recover more quickly from running competition and hard training, having had a recommendation from another runner. My experience after nearly two months of use is that it seems to work very well, and my legs feel better the more frequently I wear the 2XU compression tights, and also the longer the period of use i.e. the benefit is not instant but improves steadily over time. The result is that after years of not being able do the type of training that I did when I was much younger, I can now contemplate getting back to a varied training pattern of intervals, tempo running and longer distances in the knowledge that I don't have to spend days unable to run because of stiffness and soreness. Just two days ago, I realised that I had not felt as good running as that for a few years, and that's very good news for runner well into supervet age. As for use, I put them on straight after competition as they are particularly effective if you have to drive any distance sitting cramped in a car (the same is true for the journey to the race). I also wear them for a few hours after any form of hard training. They withstand regular washing without any loss of quality, and after two months of frequent use seem as good as new. I decided on 2XU after the usual internet comparison checks and, although they are expensive, they seem well worth the money. When buying, pay careful attention to the size guide and when you put them on for the first time, expect them to be very tight!

Really nice fit, you immediately feel the difference between this compression base layer and a normal one. I bought the top and bottoms together but for cycling so can't really comment on the top as my legs are doing all the work however I am very pleased with both.

The compression really does help on recovery although I have not noticed any difference during my rides. There are plenty of good reviews on wiggle with more technical detail but if you simply want a good base layer that is technical and can be used to help recovery then this is the one for you.

Fits perfectly. Only downside is that it it extremly mainstream. I ran 30km race "Lidingöloppet" in Stockholm end of sept. Every 1 in 10 has 2XU clothes... But they feel and look good.

I've been wanting to buy these for ages! Bit the bullet and they arrived quickly. Open the posh box and you can see where all your hard earned cash has gone - they look superb quality! They feel very comfy too, in fact better then I'd thought they'd be. I purchased Large only because of other buyers comments, the guide would suggest medium for me as I'm 5' 9" ft size 30/32 waist UK and about 30' leg length. But large is perfect. If anything they wouldn't want to be any shorter in length. Waist wise they are very comfy as they are not tight at all, they start very tight on the calves then progressively get loser up to the waist (As you'd expect). Something that has surprised me is they don't seem to keep my legs any warmer? - not as warm as 'normal' tights, they feel cold?! so id imagine you could comfortably wear them in the summer without over heating? They are described as a base layer so maybe that's why? (They don't look like a base layer). I have purchased cheap ones (More then half the price) on Amazon. The cheaper ones are no way as comfy and they seemed to fall down even though they were tighter on the waist?! 2XU look cool too!

I bought these online as I have seen others wearing them and they look the part. However, the fit feels strange and too small although I ordered my exact size. Word of warning.

Always been sceptical of compression garments-ie gimmick. Took the plunge based on others reviews and well, I am so so surprised. Done 2 back to back days of very hard training on the bike, worn them over night and at work the next day and virtually no fatigue in my legs at all. I am up on my feet for ten hours a day at work and normally after one day let alone two I can hardly stand for long. They just gave me so much support and kept my legs feeling refreshed-take the plunge I think they really are that good. I have just ordered another pair as spares.
