RecoFit Full Leg Compression Review

By Thursday, June 27, 2013 15 , Permalink 0

Back in March I was introduced to RecoFit a company based in Colorado that specializes in compression gear for athletes. I am one of the least athletic people that I know. I should be outside jogging or biking, I know; I need someone to kick me out of the house, throw my tennis shoes at me and lock the door behind me. Maybe that way I will be outside running.

When I was contacted by RecoFit on whether or not I wanted to review their compress gear I knew I was not going to be fit to do the review myself. But RecoFit, and Susan, where so nice that they still sent me a air of Full Leg Compress to review. Of course I did not use it…would beat the purpose of a review, right? But I did give them to a friend of mine. His name is Steve…and he plays baseball. No better person to review RecoFit than a true athlete!

RecoFit Full Leg Compress

Why Compress?

Due to athletes being so active, often times than not, injuries are bound to happen. This is why most of them are wearing compression socks or calf sleeves because of they enhance performance, speed recovery and prevent injuries.

Compression’s origins are well-grounded in medicine. Support stockings have long been prescribed post-surgery to assist in venous return and to prevent blood clots. By applying gradient compression from the foot and/or ankle, the blood is encouraged back up the leg to the heart. While one’s body is designed to do this on its own, a little extra help can go a long way.

Excerpt from RecoFit

RecoFit Full Leg CompressIn the words of the athlete responsible for this review, I leave you with Steve:

RecoFit Full Leg Compression Review

As an avid outdoors person, sometime gym rat and amateur athlete I have my share of aches and pains. From bad sprains, muscle fatigue and hurting knees I’ve experienced it all. But the things I noticed when using the RecoFit Full leg Compression is first, the easy use to get the product on and specific left and right leg design. The carbon-based fabric from which the sleeves are made is slick and makes it easy for on and off use.

RecoFit Full Leg CompressionSecond, after a long hard leg workout with extreme muscle fatigue the RecoFit Full Leg Compression gives the legs a chance to disperse the discomfort of the workout while allowing the accumulated heat and sweat to escape. I personally experience knee pain after a long run and the brace seems to soothe away most of the ongoing suffering and aching in my knee joints.

While stationary, the design keeps the leg compression in place. The one downside is if you need to move around the bands on the top of the brace aren’t strong enough to hold it up for more than a few minutes.  I would like to see a design alteration from this company’s product in the future with the same leg technology but in the shape of pants so you could wear it during the physical activity with no threat of falling down.

RecoFit Full Leg CompressionOverall I like the Recofit Full Leg Compression and I believe that it has helped me with muscle and joint recovery after my workouts. I would recommend that athletes and outdoors people, especially those with knee issues, look into this product. Also, I love that this product is made in the USA; it’s nice to support quality athletic products made at home.

    My doctor wanted me to wear compression stockings because the blood does not flow properly anymore in my legs–however I find them very painful -more painful then my legs without them! Maybe these would actually work to get the blood flowing back up my legs!! I am also not very active!!

    Many athletes can definitely get varicose veins and a lot of problems as they age. These are fantastic!

    I wear compression pants in the winter for running specifically because of my knee pain. I haven’t tried RecoFit though. I will definitely check them out. Thanks for the review!

      RecoFit sponsors a lot of cyclists and runners so their compression gear is practically perfect for everyone who exercises one way or the other.
