Compression Elite Tights Review,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2XU Men's Elite Compression Tights (Sports)
This review is for the compression elite tights. The main difference between the elite compression tights and the regular compression tights, is that the elite tights use a different (tighter) material around the hamstrings and calves. There are other manufacturers that create tights like this (ex CW-X), but I beleive that 2XU stitching and material is superior.
The tights are great for cardio, kettlebells, boxing, cross fit...you name it. They allow enough movement without being restrictive. I started using these to help improve performance and endurance during strenuous workouts. They work as advertised and look like they will last a while.
I wouldn't recommend these for recovery tights...they are not tight enough for that purpose. Instead I would suggest the 2XU Recovery Leggings, which I wear post-workout or overnight to get fresh legs daily. Without these products, it would be difficult to exercise at full capacity everyday, since they help soo much with recovery.
FYI - I'm 6'1, 33/34 waist, 32" inseam and the x-large was a good size for me. I could have gone with large-tall, but I prefered the larger fit.
