Do Compression Tights Work?

Pro skiers use them, so they should be good enough for you. Right?

Some compression tights actually compress your legs. Others are just tight long underwear—a far cry from the original compression tights designed to increase circulation, reduce swelling, and aid recovery. Unfortunately, it’s hard to know which is which until you try them. Some will work great for a half day, or even a full day, but some will leave you hanging, especially if you’re short on space and can only bring one pair for a multi-day ski trip.
