Default Compression Leggings worth it?

Hey all,

So I went to my local ski shop and was chatting it up with the owner and he was telling me about compression pants and how it really helped his fatigue level and pretty much made his days on the mountain great.

They are rather expensive but I would say worth it if they truly make a difference on body ware and tear...was he just selling me something or was he speaking the truth. What is your experience?
Thanks in advance!

Horse shit.

Compression pants do fuck all, they can sometimes aid in recovery afterward but they don't provide enough compression to support Miley Cyrus's A cup.

Don't waste your money.

I use compression wear for cycling from Skins. The first time I used it I could feel a massive difference in how tired my legs were and hardly any muscle pain the next day. But I would say the way I cycle is a lot more strenuous than snowboarding (unless you are a racing literally all day long) so you might not really need it for snowboarding.

It's really important to get the right size, otherwise you won't get the full effect of the compression. I will be using my compression wear this year just as layering, and because I will be doing a lot of 2 day weekend trips, it will also hopefully prevent the usual next-day achiness we all get at the start of the season

It is pretty pricey, but if you can afford it and use it a lot, I would say give it a try
