Is this the latest generation (3rd) recharge?
I received these and realized that they are small and very thin material. I tried them on and was very impressed. The compression is great, it is tight but works. You could order a size up, I did not, but I do like the fit. They do stretch. The best part of these is they are thin, very light, compress very well and are very comfortable to wear and to sleep in.
New & Improved Generation 3
The new Recharge product is excellent. Fits tighter, but more breathable, especially if wearing under your clothes The recharge is thinner and tighter than the older generation 2 recharge, but it works even better. The shirt fits perfectly, although a lot harder to get on and off. Keep in mind you should order a size up from your regular size in these, as I usually wear a small, but had to return it for the Medium, because these do run tighter than the Generation 2 series. They do provide a much more consistent compression from abs to shoulders and throughout your arms, and the sleeves are just the perfect length unlike the super long Generation 2 shirts. Definitely an A+ to Under Amour; as no other compression product provides this level of recovery for the money.
I think these were made super small so order one size larger than what is listed. When I got them they looked like they could barely fit my 7 year old son. I figured they were designed to stretch a whole lot because it was a compression fit product, but I couldn't get the shirt off once I got it on. I had to have my kid help me, so I wouldn't rip it. I have exchanged it for a Medium, hopefully I'll be able to get this shirt off once it's on. As far as the product itself, it's definitely a quality compression shirt.
