Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sub Sports DUAL Men's Compression Base Layer Long Sleeve Top (Sports Apparel)
I consider the price of compression gear to be unreasonable, in particular from some of the well known / big name brands. After visiting some of the local sports stores and reviewing what was on offer from UA / NIKE and feeling some of their products were nothing more than glorified t-shirts and underwear, I decided to go online. Discovered SUB SPORTS gear and it appealed in the "looks and price" dept, but there was no review. Further concern was the fact the product would be shipped from United Kingdom. I was apprehensive, however, the price was very attractive. I decided to risk a brand unknown to me and suffer the time determined for shipping from United Kingdom and ordered: shorts, tights and shirt (all in black). I was blown away when several days later a package arrived with the items. Super fast delivery. Now the good stuff. The products appear to be of high quality and look great. I am 5' 8" tall and lean, weighing between 145 and 150lbs. They fit like second skins. I have short legs, 30" inseam and the tights are a tad long but apart from that the shirt, shorts and tights are perfect. My legs are super lean / toned and for anyone carrying a bit more bulk the shorts and tights would have no problem. If I weighed 10 / 15 lbs overall more the fit would still be excellent as the fabric stretches in all direction but does not feel uncomfortable. The three items cost a fraction of what a pair of high-dollar tights would cost. You can'y beat this deal. Enjoy and hope this was helpful. Its only the third review I have written.

Felix...I purchased MEDIUM for all three (3) items (shorts...tights...shirt) and still believe they are excellent buy compared to many of the higher dollar name brands.

Hi, would you say that it fits true to size? My dad is normally an XL and I'm torn between getting him an XL or XXL. Thanks.
