"My first purchase of any calf compression gear, and I'm still making my mind up as to whether they're worthwhile. They seem to help slightly with post-run soreness and I've been wearing them for recovery mainly.
These seem to lose some of their compression quite quickly however - I measured and purchased according to the guide, however feel they could have been a bit tighter. I would probably purchase one size smaller next time.
For what they are (two small thin strips of fabric), $40 is pretty expensive."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive

"These overshoes do the job, and seem reasonably well made, however they're not particularly attractive, and they're quite difficult to get on. I have size 46/47 shoes, so bought the XL size, and they're a struggle to fit."
Pros: Great Value
Cons: Unattractive, Poor Fit, Limited Color Choices

"Great value compression top. This top feels a little thin, but fits well, is comfortable to exercise in, and looks good.
I'm 6'5", 87kg, and bought a medium, which is a tight fit and what I was after."

"Great for 0-10 degree rides. Comfortable, windproof and very visible. Possibly not warm enough for extreme cold, but they're perfect for Australian winter riding. Not too thick, so you still have plenty of dexterity while wearing the gloves."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Comfortable, Good Fit

"After three punctures in 6 weeks with Maxxis Detonator tyres, I switched to the Ultra Gatorskin, and have not had a puncture since (4 months). These tyres are the ultimate in puncture protection, and seem fast, with reasonable wet weather grip."
Pros: Durable, Rugged, High Quality

What is the Sizing like?

Hi, I'm enquiring about the sizing, I'm usually sized from XS-Med depending on the cut/fit.
My chest size always gets the fit right, 92cm/36inch

Thanks for your answer

Matt
I'm about 101cm across the chest and bought a medium, which is a good tight (but not too tight) fit. I would definitely recommend smaller than a medium for you, unless you like it slightly loose.
