I’ve generally only ever used Skins in the past so I was like a kid with a new toy trying them out. When you initially feel them they don’t feel like compression pants, but when you put them on you get that awesome holding it all in feeling 🙂 I love the fact that unlike the unisex Skins I normally wear that they don’t come right up to the waist too – they are cool looking and have a folder over flap on the top of the pant which gives a bit of breathing space. I was a bit worried I’d have a muffin top over the pants but not a muffin in sight – awesome! They don’t feel as tight as my Skins but that might purely be a sizing issue or the way they are designed.
I haven’t been able to run in them yet as I am still recovering from my bout of flu but I used other machines such as the elliptical trainer and they were very comfortable.
They have green striped and pink striped pants as well so I’m tempted to buy the matching pairs so I have all three 🙂
