- A great pair of compression pants for outdoor and indoor use
- Compatible with most sports (football, basketball, soccer, hockey, etc.)
- Very comfortable; can be worn without shorts
The fabric and elastic waistband lack durability, and they're a bit pricey.
Performance: If you're an athlete looking for a pair of compression pants to wear when playing, give these Nike ProCool compression tights a try. They're designed for warmer climates, with superior breathability to prevent overheating as you run, jump, and play. However, they're able to keep you warm in cooler weather as well.
The Dri-Fit fabric is quick-drying and moisture-wicking, so you can use them comfortably for hours at a time. Made of 90% polyester and 10% spandex, the material is thick enough that you can wear them without shorts.
On the downside, the material and the elastic waistband lack durability. Many users report holes or sagging waistbands within a few months of use.
Design: The design is typical for compression pants, with the greatest amount of compression around the calves, thighs, and glutes. The fit is snug, but the wide-stretch waistband isn't so tight your circulation is restricted.
The pants come with ventilation built into the crotch (to keep the important items from overheating), and the material offers good breathability. The material has good elasticity and provides a decent range of motion as you move and train.
Price: Starting at $35, these are one of the pricier pairs of compression pants on our list. Though they're not the most durable, they are comfortable and designed well enough to be worth considering.
