To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Arrived promptly and well packaged.....helps when running for me (i suffer from tight calves)...also useful for triathlon as can wear in water under wetsuit and i dont need to bother wth compression socks.
I have to admit I was skeptical about how effective these would be, but after wearing them for the last week I can absolutely tell the difference in both how I perform while training w/ them and my recovery when I wear them afterwards. So much so that I've already ordered the full leg sleeve so that my quads get the extra help for my recovery. So I will train with these and recover with the full leg. doesn't hurt that they look pretty cool to. Have already gotten some nice compliments on them. Have worn on both longer runs and bikes and had no chaffing issues or slippage. While they fit as expected if you aren't sure what size to get go down a size instead of up is my one piece of advice. If you are looking for any type of help this season these sleeves are a relatively cheap way to help you recover and take on a harder training load at the same time.
***UPDATE*** After a ton of use they are still working great. However, I can no longer recommend getting the white. Over time they have become discolored and dirty despite constant washing and care. Will be getting another pair just in a color that won't show use as easily.
Simply a great product. Be sure to get the right fit and you'll be incredibly satisfied with the lessened fatigue, speed of healing, etc. I have completed 3 full Ironman events, another 2 1/2 Ironman events, and many other running and bike races which led me to a very strained calf this summer. These sleeves were imperative in helping me heal in time for my most recent race. I genuinely don't think I would have been able to complete my last Ironman if it wasn't for wearing these. Just my opinion...
Seem to work to keep my calves in line after a calf strain. Quality is good haven't had any problems there either. 4 stars only for value. They're expensive for the amount of material you get. Not sure where the $40 goes. I dont regret the purchase because they do work, but I wont be stocking up on them at this price. To have a backup pair in case I cant do laundry on back to back days costs another $40. Ouch.
this is the second pai i buy as the first one kind of lost elasticity after 150 washes - they are great - gives good stability when running or biking and even use them during triathlon already from the swimming telling myself it reduces the drag from my hairy legs
