About Compression Base Layers
Compression base layers enhance performance in training, competing and recovery, and are designed to reduce the quick build up of lactic acid in the muscles, whilst keeping you comfortable and dry during exercise by wicking moisture away from your skin. Body moulded compression garments also improve recovery after periods of sustained exercise and help to regulate your body temperature. Compression baselayers also help prevent muscle oscillation which leads to muscle fatigue and help to minimise muscle soreness.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Based on a 38cm calf measurement our recommendation is that you go for a T3 if you haven't used compression before as comfort is important, however if you have used compression before and are used to it, go for the T2!
Just kidding. Price is for one PAIR.
they come in pairs
Thanks for your question. The price - for all sizes and colours across our range of calf guards - includes a pair.
Unfortunately our sizing isn't going to work for you, based on these measurements. It's important that the guard is sized correctly for the calf, so the T4 is certainly what would you need on that basis, but it is also too long so I'm afraid I can't recommend that you try it.
I'm sorry we couldn't help and I hope you find a suitable compression product for your needs.
In my experience, they do feel tight. Try to bring them for a run, and see what it feels like. If you cramp up relatively early, then probably you should get the T2.
But, personally, I now have 2 pairs of different colours but the same size.... so that I can use the black pair for the race, and after showering after the race, use the blue one for recovery... Feels less yucky that way.
Thanks for your questions and apologies for the delayed response.
We indeed recommend wearing the calf guards both during and after exercise. They can help during exercise by providing support and stability to the muscle which reduces stress on the shin, and we get a lot of anecdotal feedback from our customers to say that they really do help with shin split issues.
Keeping them on or putting them straight back on after exercise will help in recovery as the compression continues to stimulate blood flow after your heart rate returns to a resting state, flushing out lactic acid from the muscle. Try to put them on within 30 mins of finishing exercise and wear them for a few hours. Wearing them for a long time - or even overnight as some people do! - isn't harmful, but there are diminishing returns the longer you wear them.
We hope this is helpful, please post again if you have any other questions.
i think you shold go for small as these are designed to be tight to hold mussle, if they are loose you will not get the benefit hope this helps
You should definitely go for the T3 as the calf measurement is the most important, to ensure the appropriate level of compression is delivered to the muscle. If you find that it is a little too long, either because the bottom cuff is quite low on your ankle or the top cuff is tucked up around the back of your knee, you can just fold one or both of them over on the outside. Although they are elasticated there is no compression as such in the cuffs, so it’s fine to do this, it won’t affect the compression in the main body of the guards or affect their performance.
Thanks for your question.

Would I be right in getting the T3 size?
