2XU Hyoptik Thermal Compression Tights Review

Disclaimer: I received a pair of 2XU HYOPTIK Thermal Compression Tights to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

If you have been following me for a minute, you know that I have been raving about 2XU’s Hyoptik tights for a while now (here and here).

When asked if I wanted to test out the 2XU Hyoptik Thermal Compression tights…

My answer was HECK YES!

I have a few items from 2XU that I purchased a long time ago (and am still wearing, by the way) and I love their brand.

However, I had never tried compression tights before.

(Although, as you probably know, I am obsessed with compression socks…)

So, I was very excited to be able to compare two different types of compression products.

From what I can tell, they both work exactly the same.

So, if you are like me and love compression socks, give these tights a shot!


The Hyoptik thermal tights are great for getting noticed…

Mainly because they look very sleek (and fast!), but there are also reflective logos on the sides to help you remain visible at night, in the early morning, and at dusk.

So, if you wear these tights, people are going to see you… and be jealous of you!


Not only do they look cool, but they have magical compression powers.

Magical compression powers you say?


Compression (in my opinion) is a magical power that all runners can use during daily training runs and races.

Compression helps to prevent fatigue, increase circulation, and reduce muscle soreness.

So, yes, compression is magic.

I can ALWAYS tell when I forgot to harness the magical powers of compression because I feel much more stiff and sore when I am finished.

When this happens, I of course, kick myself.

Not literally, but you get the point.


Compression has so many benefits, why would anyone NOT want to use them?

Not this girl, that’s for sure.

2XU’s Hyoptik Thermal Compression Tights are an awesome combination of warmth, compression, style, and visibility.

I am looking forward to wearing these tights for many years to come.

Did I mention they are anti-bacterial, offer UPF 50 sun protection, and last a reeeeeaaalllly long time?

They are and they do!
