XL ain't quite so XL
on April 8, 2015
Material - good. Construction seems good. Sizing - not even close.
XL says 18-20 inch at the calf. No way unless you either are fat legged and everything can be shifted or you like blue feet. I'm just a shade over 19 and would never be able to do a workout in these. 20 and I would have not been able to get them on. Just for curiosity, I slid them onto my forearms and they are so tight (XL remember) that they wouldn't go over the elbow and no possible way to stretch over my biceps, just to give you an idea of how tight these are made.
I'll give them over to one of the girls in my house as I would say they are more appropriately sized for a 15-16 inch calf.
It's too bad..the material seemed nice and they are a little longer than some of my other pairs (from other manufacturers) but just not made for a muscular leg. MMA? I don't think so. XL? Definitely not.
3 stars for quality of construction and price, 2 off for total failure to actually measure widths.
