Default wearing Compression leggings advice

Hey I got convinced into buying some thermal compression leggings just wondering if anyone knows if you can wear impact shorts over the top or if you have done it before? Also they are full length will there be any problems with them going into the boot? I heard they might give blisters.

Yeah you can, I wear impact shorts over compression legs all the time. Compression legs are just like normal base layers but tighter.

I've personally never had any problems with blisters and compression legs.

Only time I have heard of blisters from compression pants is when they are too loose, ie, instead of stretching around the calf there is extra material that folds over itself or creases. That can result pressure points and blisters for sure.
Also, there can be little 'welts' where layers (socks, base layer, mid-layer, etc) overlap which can give some people pressure/chafe points.

so I wear these on my calves, over socks, the bottom of the wrister in inside the boot...never remotely any blisters. They work great and less expensive than compression socks

Lucky you. I have really skinny legs (genetics plus being a runner) and compression pants/base layers that are the right length for me are all loose around my calves. I have tried various approaches (base layer over socks, socks over base layer, etc.) but there is always excess material that has to go somewhere, so it form the folds that hktrdr was talking about.
Only solution that works for me is to roll up the base layer to above the boot cuff.

u must have really skinny sticks for calves...these things are made for forearms...I wear larges or xl...they are made like wetsuit material. They are pretty snug...I wear them over my sb socks cause the seam has some type of glue I'm allergic to...a day or two later it itches a lot and has a red streak where the seam sits...but it doesn't bother me if they are worn over the socks...maybe order a small

Compression tights are fine, but don't get full length ones. You really don't want any extra shit in your boot for any reason if you can avoid it.

They make 3/4 length tights like these that compress, but don't extend down to your boots.

Why do you wear compression leggings? Have you found some way to combine ultramarathoning with snowboarding?
