The run must go on.
When you're heading out for your Sunday long run and see snow flurries steadily falling outside the window, you know you're going to be in for a challenge. Whether you scored a bib for a spring marathon or are focusing on cross-training for a strong summer tri season, your training must go on. Fortunately, 2XU started as a brand for masochistic triathletes, so it understands training through punishing conditions.
The 2XU G2 Wind Defence Compression Tight is your answer on cold, blustery days. Its wind-resistant front panels shield your quads from stinging rain and blowing snow, and brushed 105-denier PWX Weight back panels add important thermal insulation to your hardworking hamstrings. PWX Weight also features graduated compression from your hammies to your lower legs, ensuring your muscles feel supported, never squished as you work hard in the cold. By encouraging circulation and limiting muscle vibration, the tight aims to help speed up recovery and curb damage to muscles from grueling workouts. Highly reflective Hyoptik reflective accents help you stand out to motorists on roads with low visibility, and an odor-resistant treatment helps accommodate your haphazard laundry schedule.

- Q & A
Seam tore after second use
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have used many 2XU products without a single problem but this was a disappointment. After the second use the seam at the knee tore, making it not so wind-proof.
