The fabric on these compression sleeves is amazingly comfortable. A cool trick I have found with my sleeves on hot days is to dip them in cold water before the run. It seems like they stay cooler the whole time and being wet doesn't effect their performance at all. These sleeves have helped with my calf soreness from long runs and workouts. I often times keep them on for an hour or so after the run to help with recovery. Make sure to size them from the largest circumference of your calf and they will fit perfectly. I would highly recommend this product to any runner.
Pros: high performance, comfortable

Review 2 for 2XU Performance Compression Calf Guard
It has the perfect amount of pressure for my calfs
The sizing is right on. The sleeve fits just above my achilles, which is great because I have tendonitis. Other sleeves I have bought put too much pressure on my achilles and I was in more pain after I took it off. This one works great!
Pros: high performance, durable, comfortable

Review 4 for 2XU Performance Compression Calf Guard
OMG, these are incredible! I do CrossFit 6x a week and I often had lower leg soreness and then later in the day this would turn to stiffness. I've dealt with it for the past 2 years. On a whim, I bought a pair of these because a Tri friend of mine raves about the brand. I put them on and in seconds my legs felt better - no kidding! Since then I've bought multiple pairs. Now I work out with them on, and then use a clean pair for recovery for the rest of the day. I also play a lot of basketball and I wear them for recovery after hooping. I haven't had lower leg soreness or stiffness since I've been wearing them. I'm sold for life! Thanks 2XU!
