Anyone who uses Under Armour would most likely run into their compression type clothing, wicking. I wear their tops, long sleeve mostly, the heavier winter one with the fleecing inside. Does it aid in circulation? I think that's debatable. There's active recovery methods and passive. The compression things are passive. I also have the Zoots type compression tights. But I use that as a dual purpose thing: winter riding to keep warm plus maybe, compression benefits. Compression socks have been around for years, named as support hose. You can find these hose at any CVS pharmacy on the shelf.
When renewable energy sources get advanced, then we'll see a lot of active recovery methods. But now, its mostly passive.
