I use this for basketball. I wanted 3/4 length compression pants that covered a good portion of my calves. Size MT (tall) with inseam of 20" -- versus 18" for the regular length -- was perfect. Great fit, quality material. The compression is more noticeable on these than what Adidas and Under Armour offer. 2XU is a top notch company. Highly recommended!

Bought these in a large and love these tights. Very comfortable and they stay put and never move no matter what you do- run, yoga, whatever. Very sleek fitting and light weight. Very pleased!

After trying another brand of compression shorts that did not work for me, I decided to try the 2XU. I am so glad that I did! They are not as compressive as I would have liked so that is why I only gave them four stars on overall. But they are extremely comfortable and stay put while running. The medium sizing was fine for me but then according to the size chart I just barely fell in the medium category. I cannot wait to try them in my next half marathon!

I got hit with a case of tennis elbow; not from playing tennis, but from typing on the computer. While my arm is healing my 2XU compression arm sleeve is giving me the support I need to minimuze discomfort while typing on the computer.

Much snugger in the butt than other bike shorts and low rise. Seriously? Bend over on your bike to ride & voila! plumber butt! Not a good idea. Otherwise liked the fabric, color bands, & pockets along back of waistband.

These are very comfortable, I can tell they are compression shorts, but not uncomfortably tight. I have a number of 2XU shorts in different styles and love them all. They do run a little small - I am 5'7", 165 pounds and wear a large.

These are great 3/4 tights! Nice fit. Nice compression (sexy look!). But the big white X on the leg is a bit much of an attitude to sport. And I've thought of taking a Sharpie marker to it.

Careful with ordering. Please note that when ordering on Zappos site they only have you order by your shoe size - these socks have a size chart for shoe size AND calf size. I typically wear a size 7.5 or 8 shoe but have a calf measurement of 15 inches. According to the size chart on the box - I wear a MEDIUM. According to Zappos site - you would order a medium if you wear a size 9.5 to 12 ladies shoe. that is not the case. If you have a calf measurement of 15 to 16.5 inches and wear a size 7.5 to 10 ladies shoe, you wear a size MEDIUM in this sock. I own several different types of compression socks and I really like these except they felt a little too tight in the calf. I am sending back the SMALL for a MEDIUM and hoping it still fits really well in the foot as the SMALL size does. I really do like these socks, really supportive - hope the Medium will fit.

These tri shorts are great! Very flattering, with some compression! I wore them for a long ride, and had no discomfort! They have a bit of a shorter rise, but the wide band looks really nice. I'm 5'6'' 140, and M fit perfect (I tried a S and they were tiny!)

I have to agree with another's post on here. I bought a pair of the 2XU that I used because I have poor circulation in my legs. I haven't used them outside of running on a treadmill every other day and just wearing them. I have washed them a couple times in the month or so that I have owned them and the X's on the back are coming apart. Otherwise I love the sleeves themselves. The durability is really what sucks.

They're okay, not bad. Definitely better compression than Nike Pro shorts or similar shorts and noticeably better than the 2XU Non-Elite compression shorts. I found the Zoot Ultra 2.0 Crx shorts to be the best compression shorts I've tried. Made of high quality material and I can really feel a lot of compression on my quads and hamstrings.

These were perfect for running my first Spartan race. No chafing, nice freedom of movement. They run true to size. They wash up good after the race, but let them air dry, don't put them in the dryer.

Fantastic compression leggings. Avid crossfitter, and I love these. They really help not only keep me warm, but assist in reducing swelling and inflammation. The only negative is that the 'X' material on the right thigh is pretty sticky. When I clean the barbell it can stick and has already begun to wear. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for the best compression leggings available. I would certainly buy more.

I love these tights! I have a hamstring injury and needed the compression. They made it so I was able to run again. The price was good, too!

I bought a pair of these and I have to say for this price they are are not worth it. I am 5'8" and the small fits perfectly. That being said they are super thin and feel like they will rip in half just putting them on. They offer barely any support. I have two pairs of CWXs and they are light years ahead in support and quality. I still will keep them to maybe wear as long underwear. It is sad because they look pretty cool but for the price. They are a total ripoff.

I just ran 5 miles in these tights. Temp 41 degrees, cloudy. They felt great on my lower body and legs were comfortable, never got cold. I'm 5'8 and like that these come in longer length. I still love my CWX tights, but those are about 2 inches short. This material is different from the CWX material. I feel like I could leave the 2XU on all day or even sleep in them, probably because the compression is not as great as with the CWX tights. I like the 2XU style, sits a little lower on waist. You have to go with what you like! These are well made and wash and dry nicely (by hand).

Expensive but feel good on. Take care after washing. if the screen printed markings touch each other while drying they will stick to each other and the peel off when you pull apart. From a fabric feel perspective I fell my CDW compression tights are better value!

I was a little disappointed with these compression tights. I did not feel a whole lot of compression going on. I usually wear CW-X tights and these are a poor substitute. Also, as a runner I sweat a lot, which is not a problem unless I have to go to the bathroom. It is like trying to peel off a soggy swimsuit. I bought large because my calves are big. They are certainly comfortable, but I wonder if the compression aspect would have been better in my usual medium size. I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for something lightweight and are not particular about compression.

I have multiple sclerosis and my calfs hurt all the time. I bought these in hopes they would help and they did. I am not sure if that is what they are for but they sure did help.

I'm a guy and bought this style in size Large 5'9" 190# and fit great. Great compression, great style (also own the male version) only difference that I can tell is the male version has an extra seam. Provide great compression, thin material but nice tight fit. Just wished they wasn't so expensive. Great for cross fit or running.

I have the male version of these in size Medium and also the Female version in size large - bought the female version because I like the subdued black X's and the only difference is an extra seam in front. (BTW I'm 5'9" 190 lbs.) Both fit great and compress well. I use these for running, lifting weights, and at my Crossfit classes 3 x week. The 3/4 (capris) length style are great for working out if you want some compression benefits and not a full legging. These add nice compression to my knees. Love them. Wife tells me I look hot and I get compliments from the chicks at Cross Fit. If your on the fence about trying this style. Go for it and more men are getting into compression and the 3/4 style. Love your body.
