Premier Sport Wear from McDavid USA! #Review

Most of our family is very active, with various members having their own favorite activities. Some enjoy racquetball, some enjoy tennis, the boys prefer basketball and football (although the girls still enjoy taking them on in these games as well), and I personally enjoy just about anything I can do outdoors-jogging, biking, sports, and my personal favorite, martial arts. 

I actually started jogging last summer when M and I decided to enter a 5K race. About one month before the date of the race we signed up, and started training 5-6 days a week. Over the winer we pretty much stopped running due to all the ice, but this past spring I decided to keep going with jogging, even though we weren't looking to race again anytime soon. I actually discovered that I enjoy jogging; there's nothing quite like going out in the early morning and getting 3 or 4 miles done before most people are even out of bed! One thing I had to deal with in the beginning was shin splints though. Last year when we first started jogging, there were a couple times it was so bad we had to take a couple days off. We kept at it though, and soon the shin splints became less of a problem. I knew compression was a good way to help with the issue, so I kept an eye out for some at stores, but didn't really find anything that looked like what I wanted. I took my search online, and discovered McDavid, a company that offers premier sport and performance wear for men and women alike!
I received the Women's Capri Tights from McDavid for review. These are 3/4 length, which is exactly what I like. They are the perfect base layer for sports, and especially for running/jogging! The compression is amazing, and really did help with any pain or discomfort from running-I haven't had shin splints at all since I started wearing these capri tights during my jogging! I also like that they're made with moisture management technology, which means they help keep you dry while running.

These compression tights also came in handy when we started jiu-jitsu classes a few months ago. There's a lot of ground training/fighting, and it's pretty much a given that you need another layer under your uniform. These are perfect for this situation, because the compression means they're not riding up or sliding down even with all the rolling, twisting and shrimping (yes, that's an actual jiu-jitsu move) you do in jiu-jitsu!

Love the inner pocket for cash, etc.!
McDavid offers so many other great sport gear from shirts, shorts, sleeves, pants, and more! Be sure to check out their website if you're in the market for some new performance wear!
