2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Run Compression

RecoFit Sleeve

$45, Recofit.com
The draw: Minimally compressive, but breathable

Developed and manufactured in the multisport hub of Boulder, Colo., these sleeves are made of a carbon yarn and Lycra-spandex blend that feels dramatically more breathable than typical compression garments, such as CEP’s Classic Sock. The sleeves slide on with ease, but they offer a more subtle sensation of muscle com- pression than other apparel in this roundup.
