Full Compression, Full Recovery: 2XU Elite MCS Compression Tights Video Review | BibRavePro

Disclaimer: I received the 2XU Elite MCS Compression Tights to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador, tell them I sent you), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

I'm a fan of compression. My calf sleeves and socks leave them feeling great, but the rest of my legs sore. I got a chance to test out a product that is designed to fix just that problem and address the recovery of the full leg. They came just in time for the end of my training and my races for the Runner's World Hat Trick. I thought I'd share with you my personal experience with you, but in a new way for my blog.

That's right, instead of writing a wordy blog about what my experiences, I instead broke out the video camera and recorded a video review. It's my first of such reviews, so it's may be a little rambling, but worth the watch.

Do you use compression? Have you ever tried full leg compression tights?

  1. Great job on your first video! I may have to look into these tights. After running13 or so miles my legs get super sore. Not so much my calves, but my upper legs. Perhaps tights like this might help me get those extra miles in without feeling so sore? -M

    1. These have really helped me with the upper part of my legs. They might really help out in that area.

  2. I have a pair of 2xu compression socks and they are my favorite. I have not tried the tights yet but they sound great!

    1. They are fantastic. Now I want to go out and try a lot of their other gear
