I just stumbled across this Mens Cross Fit Compression tight made by Reebok.
These two pieces would look the part at any gym or workout!
The Reebok Men’s CrossFit Compression Tights feature PlayIce fabric technology which uses ventilation, moisture management and fabric construction to help aid the release of heat. Antimicrobial fabrication and stretch flatlock seams further enhance long-lasting comfort, even for the toughest workout.
Fabric: 73% polyester, 27% elastane tricot
PlayIce fabric technology offers enhanced ventilation and moisture release
Antimicrobial fabrication keeps you feeling fresher for longer
Stretch flatlock seams offer chafe-free comfort
Mesh gusset and knee panels for enhanced range of motion
Having tried compression tights with the gusset (support for guys), I think the gusset is useful in activities which you are moving around a fair bit, such as cardio workouts etc.
I’m interested in how many men (apart from me) would wear these cool compression tights.
There seems to be a trend away from black and boring compression tights. As seen in my earlier post, womens compression tight fashion is a lot more interesting, whilst the men are too scared to buy compression pants that have a colour or designs.
I think the right mix of support and compression is also vital, and not being familiar with the PlayIce fabric technology, I wonder how it compares to the likes of the Brooks Dri-Fit wicking technology and also the type of technology used in the antimicrobrial fabrication (how is this done?).
According to one review on the Reebok site, they run small and are a little tight, which has been my experience with some Brooks Running Tights I bought some time ago (although I think it was my chub that was the problem – not the tights).
If you’ve bought a pair of these tights, let us know what they were like and whether you would recommend them.
