Worth every pennyAs a college athlete, I had chronic shin pain and shin splints, including a few stress fractures. I had tried numerous different taping techniques, sneakers, stretching, strengthening, etc but still ended up in a walking boot to treat my shin pain every year. These have been a great addition to my treatment, greatly decreasing my pain, keeping me in the game, and greatly decreasing my time in the walking boot. I have had the same pair for 2 1/2 years and they are just starting to wear down. Amazing buy!
These sleeves are perfectAfter four compartment release surgery for chronic exertional compartment syndrome, I wore the sleeve daily, and iced nightly. I was able to run a half marathon less than three months later, and a full marathon less than seven months later. Even the surgeon did not think this would be possible. The sleeves have held up to several useses and washings. I did not experience any skin irritation, which I did when trying another product. These sleeves are perfect post surgery, or injury, though I continue to use them on all my runs. I highly recommend this product.
No more crampingAfter multiple hours on the bike, I used to get twinges and soreness in my lower calves that even extended to my feet until I started using Double Life Shin/Calf Sleeves. Combined with my stretching, foam rolling, and self-massage, the Calf Sleeves add the final touch to my recovery. No more cramping and minimal soreness the next day. Very impressed with this product.
AwesomeThe calf sleeves are awesome to wear if you just want to throw them on quick after a hard run and getting in the car to drive home. The ice and compression help a ton and the ease at which the calf sleeves go on is great. I love the knickers but when I'm short on time, I love to just throw on the calf sleeves and be on my way. I am 110% convinced that the compression and ice of 1105 Play Harder helps my recovery by 50%. I'm not sore after hard workouts and I calf injuries are a thing of the past.
the best in every wayI have dealt with shin pain/splints for years and hate running for that lone reason! I've tried nearly everything from stretches, lower leg exercises, shoes, also other brands and styles of lower leg compression sleeves. These are by far the best in every way. Comfort before, muscle isolation and compression during, and compression and icing after. Just simply amazing and the best! I will be buying more!
my calves feel greatI just wanted to write a few lines about your calf guards which I received on my birthday (how did you know lol). I used them for the first time yesterday on an 18 mile cross country race recce. Think plowed farmers fields rather than hard packed single track! I wore the guards during the run and despite the rough ground I did notice the complete lack of calf movement. My calves and achilles felt better supported with no DOMS today to report in that area while my thighs are quite sore. I put the ice packs in for the journey home and I could feel them working straight away. Not too cold, and the cooling feeling lasted for a couple of hours - fantastic. Today my calves feel great and I'm looking forward to my club run tonight. In short, a great product - fantastic. Thank you very much.
I wear them constantlyThe best ideas are the ones that you hear and say, 'That's so simple! Why didn't I think of that!'' That was my exact reaction when I heard about the revolution that is storming the world of high-performance compression wear. It's simply genius - combining compression that works great with an ice bath on-the-go. Wear the sleeves from the gun to the tape, then slide in the ice packs and immediately enter recovery mode. You will feel unbelievable the next day - trust me! I wear them constantly'no really, all the time. If you've never worn compression to the office, you've obviously never tried 110%. You too will never want to take them off. They blend perfectly under the khaki slacks and blue button down. Productivity at work + Recovering for your evening workout = multitasking at it's finest. These awesome products have honestly changed my life for the better - taking away the little persistent aches and pains of long training miles. I highly recommend them for anyone that's looking to perform at their best and recover even better.
Absouletly love these compression sleevesAbsouletly love these compression sleeves. I can wear them while running, whether in training or in a race! After the run, I can easily put the ice inserts into the various sections of the sleeves to aid in my recovery process!
The ice makes it a lot easier to 'ice bath'As a current collegiate runner, I can say that these things are amazing. They definitely help clear the junk out of your legs. The ice makes it a lot easier to 'ice bath', and the portable bag lets you take it on the go. I've definitely noticed an increased recovery after workouts, and races. There also great for long travel days, when your legs are suspect to cramp up or become sore.
They are worth the investementTight calf muscles are not fun and hard to relax at times. I tried everything and taping and just holding ice to my leg the night before a run was no working. I was at a local running shop and came across these. I didn't feel like spending that much money right away so I did some research. I liked what I read from reviews and such and decided to buy them. They have been one of the best purchases I have made,instantly I noticed a difference with my calf muscles. I wear them before and after workouts and always receive the benifits. The sleeves have just the right amount of compression to feel the effects but are not to tight. The ice stays in place and is not to cold on the skin but I can feel the ice working. Best product for recovery I have they go everywhere with me now,this with a roller stick does wonders. The insulating bag they come in work as well. I would definitively recommend these,I told my coach about them and he bought a pair and loved them. They are worth the investement.
