    Anyone ever used it? It's pretty pricey, and I want to get a few reviews before I look into investing.

    I've been using the recovery tights for three years and LOVE them. Slap them on for about three hours post workout and suddenly, "poof" legs feel great the next day... even the day after if it was squats that torched them. (I alsways have a 72 hour window on squats until I get to the rue "ouch."

    I can't give you much feedback on the regular tights as i haven't used them yet... but the recovery tights... GO FOR IT!

    They also work great on long car drives and airplane flights.... no edema...

    Hope it helps!

    Agreed. In fact, I'm wearing them right now.

    DOn't shy away from wearing them during sport either. the compression helps reduce muscle vibration, allowing for shorter recover times.

    I've always thought this stuff was pretty silly though it can look hot on the right guy. Any performance bonus that you're getting would seem to really be on the margins. There are just so many other ways to increase your performance for less money that I wouldn't recommend anyone go this route until there were really, really dialed in with their workouts. If you're doing it for fashion, go for it though. Whatever makes you happy.
