Cool, comfortable, and worth every penny.
on May 18, 2010
I own both the heatgear and coldgear leggings and love them both. The heatgear leggings keep your legs cool under pants, even during the Summer heat, and reduce/eliminate chaffing. I umpire a lot of baseball games and wear these under my plate slacks (and under my shin guards). They work great, and I was surprised that an extra layer of clothing actually kept me cooler in the heat. I've also worn them under my ski pants in the middle of Winter (and under a knee brace) before I found some of the coldgear leggings. They are durable, easy to wash (I use gentle cycle just because I wash them a lot), and they are extremely quick to line dry (like an hour or two). They are definitely "compression" fit, and they do seem to make my legs less prone to aches and pains after working a double-header. I paid $39.99 for mine, and they were worth every penny. I followed the sizing recommendations of the manufacturer, and they fit perfectly (I'm 6'2", 240 lbs. and got the XL's).
