Admittedly, I don't see a sizing chart anywhere on the current listing via my iPad; however, I ordered the smallest size available... A small. My calf measures at 13.5-14 inches, and this sleeve doesn't feel much tighter than some of my running pants. I wish an extra small option had been offered. I bought two of these and will now be returning the one I haven't used.

If you wear a small, do not order this product. If you wear larger sizes, be sure to order a size down.

I am a representative of Pro-Tec Athletics, the manufacturer of this product. Please note that as of Sept 2012 we have adjusted our sizing on this product so you will no longer need to order down a size to get added compression. Please order according to the sizing chart listed and you should be getting a snug fit. Thanks!

I was told by several people that calf sleeves are a good way to speed recovery or have fresher calves in a race situation. Absolutely correct on both counts. I have worn them to bed and they definitely do make a difference after a hard training session. It is difficult to precisely describe what they do when you are going hard in the gym or on the road. The best way to say it is that you have less burn and fatigue. One suggestion - without sizing in inches: I have 18.5 inch calves and to me compression works best with adequate pressure. I am using the "large" sizing and they are a good fit. I would imagine that you should go a size lower than what you think you need to make sure you get the full benefits of compression. If its loose you will be giving ANY compression product a low rating since it is just not able to do its job.

This sleeve is awesome! It saved me! I have horrible shin splints in my left shin and this sleeve has helped alleviate the pain as well as preventing (in my opinion) more damage. I was a week away from running my first 1/2 marathon and I didn't think I was going to be able to do it because of my awful shin splints but because of this sleeve I was able to run it and run it with no pain.

Size: Medium
My calves just don't agree with running the way they used to. Any time I go for a run of 3 miles or longer, my calves are very tight and sore by the end of my run and they stay that way for at least a day. Also, a couple of times this year I've experienced a slight calf tear that has required me to stop running for a couple of weeks. Yesterday I had a 4 mile race and in advance of the race I bought two of these and wore one on each calf. I have to say that I felt a bit ridiculous wearing them but... they really worked! After the hardest run I've had all year my calves felt really good and today they're only very slightly sore. I'm extremely pleased at how much these helped. As far as sizing goes, my calves measure 15 1/2" and following the advice of other reviewers I went a size smaller than recommended and got a Medium - on the Pro-Tec web site [...] medium is from 13 - 14.5" and large is from 14.5 - 16.5". I think the Medium is the right size for me.

I ordered one to support a calf injury. I liked it so much, I just ordered a second one for my other leg to help with a transition to barefoot running!

As stated by others, order one size down from what you would expect.

Recently rode the 2013 Seattle to Portland bike ride and these made a big difference. I started out not wearing them but about 1/3 into the ride I could feel my calves on the verge of cramping. I stopped and slip these on and rode another 100 miles without crampng or having the sensation of a cramp coming on. I would say that I should have gotten the extra large size, the large did the job but they did feel very tight putting them on. Good product and will order the XL next time.

Excellent support for a calf injury - does not loose its elasticity as long as you dont dry in a dryer

I purchased two of them a few weeks ago, and they are great to run with. I will be purchasing two more, for they feel great on my calfs. I have been running 34 years and never wore calf sleeves before. My wife started recently wearing them and now does all the time. Then my buddy started wearing them and said how he liked them. So I purchased two, and must say they feel great! The price is right on the Pro-Tec Calf Sleeves.

Very important..........if you want compression........go down one size........I did.
