Compression tights

Hey folks,
Wanted to get some advise on compression tights. I work out in the garage and it gets cold. I am also doing a Goruck in December and need to keep warm! Unsure if insulated vs normal is the route to go or not. I also wanted impressions of which brand is better. I am currently looking at the 2XU or the CW-X.

Thanks

Re: Compression tights

Try out www.SpunPerformance.com (wfs). Good quality and more affordable than most brands. Owner is a CFer himself.

Re: Compression tights

I have a pair of CWX. I Am not really a fan of them since they are so high waisted. Perhaps a medium would be better than a large. I tried on a pair of 2XU in medium and really liked them. I am saving up for a pair now. They are stupid expensive.

I second this one. I have a pair of ones from spun and 2XU and the pun ones are just as good for much less. Also the socks are great too.

Re: Compression tights

I would be interested in some others as well. I have some Spun performance shorts and did like them a lot, but unfortunately had a seam tear within a year.

I'd bet if you contacted him he'd work with you. They have awesome customer service. Shoot him an email and see what happens.
