Returned after one use.
on January 30, 2012
I researched compression pants for about a month before finally deciding to buy. My muscles and joints get pretty beat up from my training in krav maga and brazilian jiu-jitsu so i decided to give these a shot. One of the primary selling points for me was the stellar reviews on amazon and another rave review from a local shop that specializes in running gear.
I received the pants and was beyond excited to use them. Fit was great, support was great. I went to class that night and the design on the knee beginning ripping off. the fabric underneath was also beginning to fade. I asked myself, is something that supposed to be top of the line quality and this expensive really supposed to fade after one use? The answer is no in my eyes. you could say i was using them for something they arent intended to be used for. However, they are made for triathlons. I would think they would get pretty abused in training for and during actual triathlons as well. So i sent them back to the store. The return process was easy.
Now i purchased a pair of the BSC compression pants and so far so good. A little bit more expensive but worth it because they have not faded and I've been using them everyday for over a week now. You can't buy them on amazon but if you look hard enough you can find them.
