This is a great base layer for high output activity. I actually wear it for trail Whistler Pro Ski Patrol running and XC skiing, and it works great, keep me dry, cool, and strong. Great support around shoulder and upper torso which provides anatomically right form and reduces fatigue.
Socks If you push your limit very hard all day, let's say, intense full day ski touring for example, this pair of socks makes a difference at the end of the day. Great support around calves and keep my feet dry reasonably.
I strongly feel the stockings improve blood circulation in the legs and feet. I wore them virtually every day during the cold weather of February and March. They were extremely beneficial for curling, as my legs did not feel tired after 2 1/2 hours on the ice. They also kept my feet surprisingly warm, perhaps because of better blood circulation in my legs and feet. They were really beneficial during bonspiels where I was on the ice for two games in one day, and got home without feeling fatigued. I wear them while golfing in the summer, they increase circulation in the legs & feet which allows me to concentrate & focus on my game + gives me stamina to complete 18 without fatigue! The socks have also given me an increase in power which has added a few extra yards onto my drives & long fairway shots! The other significant benefit imparted by the stockings is the virtual elimination of fluid buildup (edema - from high blood pressure) in the feet and legs during extended periods of time on my feet. I put on the stockings, my legs felt great and the swelling had disappeared My feet always swell while flying in airplanes - wearing the socks prevents my feet from swelling! The stockings appear to resist any tendency to "stretch" after frequent washings, and if anything, seem to be harder to put on and take off immediately after they are laundered they're a great product for seniors such as I.
I wear these socks playing hockey and baseball and they are the most comfortable sport socks I've ever worn. In the past I've always had problems with blisters from skates with other socks but since I've started wearing these socks I've never had a blister. The extra ankle support I get playing ball feels great too.
"These socks are the best support I have ever worn. I have endured plantar fasciitis for more than 10 years along with the injections, prosthetics and braces. The pain always returned. These socks offer far superior arch and ankle support as soon as you put them on. I also suffered a torn ligament in my ankle that was never repaired. These socks give me ankle stabilization that is equal to taping without the time (and money) required to tape every day. These socks are amazing."
I play Junior B hockey and these socks and shirts are amazing. The socks give me great support and the shirts are super comfortable. I would recommend these socks and shirt to anyone.
