Calm down bro. I was talking more along the lines from my perspective. Riding up is not a problem for me, but I can see it doing that in the wrong size. I wasn't singling you out since there is no effin way for me to know your body style and whatever you do in it. Jeez, I swear some people just want to be attacked and are waiting for it.

By the way, I did state that the compression feels good coupled with my stretches. Nowhere did I say that it is the deciding factor in choosing compression. The deciding factor is because I can't tell I have it on anymore.

compression all the way. It technically works better, is more comfortable, and isn't loose or twisty or bulky or in the way at all. its just like wearing your own skin. I have some nice Craft base layers i like a lot, but i'm eyeballing some wool stuff for this year.

It was a stupid suggestion. Like I said, it has nothing to do with fit and everything to do with the slippery material they use. For the cold weather gear this isn't a problem because they use something else but for the regular compression stuff it is. I got mad because I used to be a fit model for MEC, for 3 years the clothes they made were designed off of my body. So I have damned high expectations of fit.

fair enough, but not all brands fit the same!

Personally, I don't like wearing compression for more than a few hours, but for quick park runs or sports I love it for keeping me warm and comfortable.

Thank you.


I hope this made someone else laugh as much as it made me laugh.

I wear NikePro long compression pants and they are awesome! ....i also wear my hexpad girdle from high school football on top for hip and butt pads
