Additionally, the pants can help to prevent injuries by providing support to the muscles and joints.
20 Best Compression Pants For Running
1. Brooks Women’s Method 7/8 Tight Run Raisin / LG
Tights as smooth as your stride The Method 7/8 women’s running tights combine on-the-run comfort with freedom to move. The modern fit is supportive and seamlessly light, while stretch adds comfort for distraction-free miles.

Strategic perforation allows extra airflow. Carry what you need with two side pockets and one back pocket that fits a phone. To keep your Brooks gear looking and performing its best, machine wash separately before wearing, try not to use fabric softeners and tumble dry on low heat.
I bought these and was on the fence, however, the compression is great for me! I’m 5’3, 165lbs and bought the Large. For me they fit perfect, are snug and don’t sag. There is some sagging while running and I do have to readjust 1x sometimes while out for a quick 5k in my neighborhood when I start sweating.
However I snagged these for about $56 and I feel they are my go to for fall weather. The pockets are great, too. They are soft, the drawstring is not necessary for me and the only con is they do keep in sweat post run so I am quick to shower post workout.
I already have two pairs of the shorts so as soon as it was time for tights I knew I needed to get these. Brooks tights have always been my go to, they fit well and last forever. These will be part of my regular rotation.
They are a bit thick in terms of the fabric so only wear when it’s in the 40s-50s.
I did like the material of the capris, but they ran way to small on the legs, super tight, All my running capris are size small, but these just did not work for me. Also did not exchange for medium since I was afraid they would be to big around waist.
If you have skinny legs they might work just fine for you.

Nike compression stuff normally run small so I would always have to get a size up. I bought these in a size large and since im a 5’6 guy they fit me like a full length pair of compression tights. I guess i can only stick to the shorts.

The size XL is getting smaller and smaller. I used to have size M, it fit, afterwards I reordered size M again after about 2 years. These didn’t fit at all, now I have ordered XL again and these are still smaller (too tight) than the M I had before.
I can not understand this. It is very difficult to return from Switzerland! With the next order I will ask for a discount, otherwise the shop is very good. Material is great.
I can’t really review the compression shorts because I did not order them this time around. I ordered the commuter urban cargo shorts. They arrived today (and thankfully I got what I ordered since the cargo shorts are ten bucks more than the compression shorts).
The cargo shorts have proved satisfactory in every regard in terms of sizing and material. I note that the fly opens on what is normally deemed the correct side for men’s clothing. This wasn’t the case in the previous pair I ordered several years back.
It wasn’t a major issue, but it did take some getting used to. It’s nice to zip & unzip without having to think about it. Being from Arizona, I would have preferred the lighter charcoal or navy colors to black, but my preferences were inevitably “out of stock.
” The AZ sun gets pretty intense this time of year and wearing black isn’t the best way to beat the heat. As for the compression shorts, I have ordered them in the past, and for recumbent riding they can’t be beat.
I bought two pair. One Black extra large, and one Royal Blue large. Right off the bat both are great! The material seems to be high quality, and after heavy use for several weeks now, they both seem to be holding up pretty well.
That’s not to say they are not without cons however. The reason I bought two sizes is because I didn’t know what would fit better. My normal size is an extra large, but having experience with Aerotech’s Bib shorts, I know all too well that they seem to run big.
Well both fit great, except the extra large pair is as expected not fitted to my liking. As one reviewer said already they are by no means baggy, or loose I just like a tighter fit. The size large pair however fit’s just how I like them too, nice and tight.
I think both have too much of a high waist though. I’m 5’11, and can almost urkel them. I have to fold over the waist band a few inches to be comfortable with them.

These compression stockings are well made, comfortable and relieve my leg pain. This is my third pair and my other two pairs are a year old and still in brand new condition and I like to wear them most days.
I can wash them on delicate and hang dry. I will be purchasing another pair as I need to wear compression stockings and this is the most comfortable pair I have ever worn. As a retired registered nurse I recommend them.
I love these!! They’re comfortable and they do the job of compression tights without feeling like compression tights! Incredible! I am going to try the smaller size as my hip measurement is pretty narrow so sometimes my tights don’t stay up as well as I would like.
Maybe I need to build my ****!! Lol! Any way, they’re brilliant and I have ordered another pair so that says it all!.
When it comes to performance on the track, the 2XU Run Mid Rise Compression Tight does not disappoint. This tight features graduated compression for faster recovery, reduced muscle fatigue, and risk of injury so you give your best no matter what.

The Zone3 RX3 tights offer validated graduated compression and are also designed to carefully support the muscles and make you feel and perform your best during exercise. A combination of X-PWR and Revolution Energy fabric from Italy is used to support the hip and knee whilst increasing blood flow to the calves, hamstrings, quads and glutes.
A heat bonded PU tape is used on the lower leg and positioned to support the soleus and help reduce one of the most common forms of calf pain. Once you put these tights on you will feel the difference, whether training, racing or using for post-workout recovery.
The combination of fabric provides a firm yet soft fit and actively wicks away sweat from your skin to regulate temperature and keep you dry. A matt fabric is used for a subtle finish and more space is given around the front crotch than other compression wear to offer more comfort i.
e they are designed to look like running tights and not underwear. A high denier strength material is used for our Black-Out feature which ensures the tights don? go see-through during gym work and comfort is maximised with a 3cm waist band together with a lightweight drawstring cord.
Flatlock stitching is used throughout the garment and heat bonded ankle seams for additional comfort and functionality. Each pair has two storage options, firstly there is a heat taped zipped pocket on the upper back for nutrition or music devices storage and there is also a front inner pocket for use keys or other items when doing mat work.
The Zone3 Women?s RX3 Compression Tights are great – really comfortable, nicely tight but in no way restrictive (they feel like a second skin). The waistband is relatively high with an extra internal tie if required, the tights stay in place during running / workouts and they do not require constant readjusting (a real bugbear of my previous other branded leggings).
The material is robust but breathable and squat proof! I wore the tights during and post longest run ever last week and definitely feel as though I had reduced muscle ache than usual. The zipped pocket is perfect for keys etc and the small pocket in the front of the waist band fits a standard gel/energy bar.
Having initially been dubious about the price of the compression tights I?m now a convert – I?d rather by once and get quality than by several cheaper options that then don?t live up to much. I would highly recommend these – thank you Zone3!.
I bought the tight in December 2020 and after about 3 months or so the thread on the left thigh started to loose and I can pull it easily. This is not a good sign and I personally do not like it. I don’t believe on any of the compression now that can easily wear and tear so fast.
Why there keep designing with lots of stitches in every compression tights? I don’t understand and we paid them so expensive but durability just not there.

I bought a small. Sad coz my frame got larger due to regular workouts. So clearly, I had to go medium now. But i was actually happyy that the leggings did the adjustment for me. *chuckles I love the design of this leggings.
And it really helped me do more repetitions and maintain a better posture and form. I do recommend wearing them upto an additional hour for recovery. Don’t worry coz the sweat gets wick.
Bought It because it was on sale and UA legging fits perfectly fine for the Heatgear line. But for RUSH it keeps rolling down from my waist and it affected my work out. Plus it’s harder to put on compared to other leggings, don’t know why.
I do bootcamp training, anyone who does this sort of training will definitely know they need to wear tights that are ultra comfortable, wick away sweat , the tights don’t sag and need to be pulled up every two seconds.

The tights are very good and I am using to run in cool fall weather so in 1C-10C. The waist fits very good, I ordered M and I am 32/33. Not true compression but was not expecting that given the price of real compression leggings are much higher.
Delivery speed was good. I will try to use also as base layer for warmer winter ski day.

dar am continuat sa-i folosesc asa, nu e grav. colantii au marimea T3 iar eu am 181cm si 83kg, mai am si alti colanti T3 (tot compressport), scurti, care nu au patit nimic de mai bine de 1 an.

When compression meets comfort, you get our brand-new performance stretch knit fabric in 30 inseam tights with a brushed waistband, a hidden pocket feature and flatlock seams to prevent chafing. Great for running, training and hiking.
Full disclosure, these are my first pair of compression tights of any brand. I’ve worn under shorts for a cold, and a rainy run. I’m very impressed in that they keep the chill off while running in temps around mid 30’s.
Used as a base layer under some OR cirque pants and was way too warm while snowshoeing. I am definitely going to buy a 2nd pair. I cannot attest to long term durability, however I have a few other items from Vuori and I’ve never had anything but great success.
I really wish Vuori would use a different country for sourcing. There are a lot of good countries for textiles other than China. Having said that, these are very good tights. More substantial material than one sees in similar products from other places.
The ankle zippers are a nice touch. I do think the camo pattern is less visible in normal lighting than is suggested by the photo. Would love to see them in a blue camo as well. As for sizing – one review says these have a loose fit – not sure what size he ordered relative to his body shape, but these are not meant to be, nor are they, loose.
I am 5’10” and 170 – and cycling is my primary exercise much of the year, so my legs are fair-sized though not huge. I went with a medium as I do with their shorts and they fit great – definite feeling of compression.
These pants are amazing! So soft and comfortable. My only problem with them (and it’s actually a pretty big problem) is that the ankle zippers stick out so much! They snag on to things like my socks or if I sit cross-legged on a fabric chair.
Sometimes it scratches me or digs into my leg pretty hard when I’m sitting and not paying attention. I am consciously scared of the zippers unfortunately! It’s such a shame because I otherwise love them so much!.
Compression pants are beneficial for runners because they help to improve blood circulation and reduce muscle soreness. Wearing compression pants can also help to prevent injuries by providing support to the muscles and joints.
Additionally, compression pants can help to improve your running performance by helping you to stay warm and dry during your run.
