    Yeah, they look pretty low rise in the photo and I was imagining having to hike them up periodically. Good to know.

    How warm are they? Like would they be uncomfortable for sleeping?

    I'm thinking about these today after a rough night's sleep due to leg issues after running last night. I've had the same problem after long bike rides, too. The tights looked relatively 'thick' last Saturday, so I don't know if they'll be too warm for sleeping (in the non-winter, of course).

    It's always so hard to answer questions about temperatures, because we all run at such different levels. That said - several gals in the office wear them to sleep in. And I know many of our customers do the same. In truth, I've napped in mine (I do love me a mid-afternoon nap after a hard a.m. workout ), have slept in them most of a night (as for the time trials) but have never slept in them overnight entirely.

    Does anyone have a sense on how long compression tights last before they lose their effect?

    Also, anyone compare the 2XUs to the Zoots, and notice any differences worth noting?

    Thanks!

    Bill wears compression calf sleeves on long-distance drives to help circulation.



    PS - the sizing by body measurements is spot on.
    Yes, I am also using a calf sleeve. I played football in my 20s, but over the past year or so, I had a shin fracture, which affected my football / running. I spent a week in pain after exercising. Putting on the calf sleeve changed this bad situation. When playing football, the calf felt very supportive. I didn't feel pain when I played.

    Compression is the way to peace and harmony in the universe.

    If I was a horse they'd shoot me (no horses were harmed in this post). Years of martial arts training left me with very torn up knees and joints. Compression tights are great. They not only make my gnarly joints feel held together but keep them warm. I'm finally starting to train again and find this very helpful. Makes me feel almost normal as far as movement.
