So fresh and so tight, tight

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love Smartwool. I also like feeling squeezed. I got these because they were on sale and because they are made of wool and because I might end up appreciating them after a full day of hiking or skateboarding, even if the benefits are only in my mind.

I got an XL. My calves are 18.5 inches in diameter. And these guys are squeezey and tight. The sizing says XL is for 16-23 in calves, but I can't imagine getting them on if my calves were much larger. So crispy tight. I think the hardest part was actually getting them over my ankle.

And they certainly didn't move. At all. I wasn't running a marathon, but I did wear them around for a couple hours of walking and there was absolutely no slumping or sliding. I'm wearing them on my forearms at the moment and they are nice and cozy there too.

They are definitely at the 'no itch' end of the Smartwool spectrum. Every once in awhile I find a Smartwool item that is a bit rougher/itchier than expected which makes itself noticeable during wear (my one Smartwool t-shirt is like that, maybe it just needs a wool wash?). I'm very aware of these compression sleeves because of their tightness, but I didn't have any itchy moments.
