    Compression gear

    This may be a bit outside the scope of this forum but.....

    I just started training for my 1st TRI and was looking for compression shorts. I found an online, inexpensive source for compression gear -- Zyflex. Has anyone had any experience with them? Quality & durability? Cheers? Jeers? http://www.zyflexsportswear.com/

    Thanks in advance

    Try these Skins Compression tights , I bought some and they work really well. They keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Also my legs are not as tried after a tough workout.

    i don't know of a lot of people that wear compression shorts under their tri shorts...
    i think that's probably why so many people are turning towards compression socks..
    what distance tri are you doing?

    I'll be doing my 1st Tri (Sprint) May 31st. I plan on wearing the compression shorts during weight training and while running. I don't plan on wearing the compression shorts under Tri shorts.

    What is the advantage of compression socks?

    I live in Southern California and nearby to my workplace is a triathlon specific store. They have Skins, Zoot, and 2XU products. These have the compression sportswear you're looking for. They have a web site: www.onetri.com as in One Tri. Their web site has a toll free number.
