I give these 10 out of 10 acorns.


These are the best tool I have ever bought.  I say tool because I use them like a tool.

I bought them while we were building our house.  I have bad knees and I was starting to have hip problems.


These bottoms have solved my hip problems.  I don't wear them everyday like I did during the house build.  Now I mainly wear them when we have to go shopping.  During these trips I have no knee pain.  When we come home and I take them off I do notice some knee pain though it is not as much as it would have been without them.

Under Armour sells two kinds:  The HeatGear and the CoolGear.   The best description I can give these is the HeatGear is for summer and CoolGear is for winter.

UA clothing is amazing. I have some of their tactical pants. Theres a pocket on the outside seam that holds a cell phone. Its not in your face like cargo pants. You cant see the pocket.  The phone is accessible when sitting, or on your knees picking weeds. The belt loops are spaced different also. It makes carrying a gun or knife easier. The last part is how clean they got. I stained them so bad i thought it would be permanent. Not so.

I give this compression wear 10 out of 10 acorns

I bought these as "longjohns" for hunting in the cold or sleeping. I had never considered the medical aspect they offered.  I have a minor mcl knee injury and sleeping on my side can be painful as the leg wants to bend at the knee. I wear a knee brace either at night or during the day, but not both. Its too much of an irritant to wear the brace for 24 hours. After sleeping in these, they did better than the knee brace and no chafing that i get from the brace. It was a pleasant surprise that was totally unexpected. Who would expect longjohns to be a medical device? Wow

I will add my two cents here as well.  I have a nasty case of restless leg syndrome—my legs even want to jump in the day—and I have found UA apparel to help better than meds.  I like reactor leggings as they give my legs compression that calms them down.  I am happy I found this out.

I've read about this kind of thing at the checkout counter. That's where I met this tiny ad:
