leg Sleeves
 
whats the deal with some pros wearing these leg sleeves what are they for and who makes them ? are they just legs cut off old wet suits? or is it a specific type of material ?

I think the idea is compression. It's kind of like Kiniseo Tape, where pressure can be used to keep overstretched connective tissues, like tendons, from moving more than they should.

I use the compression sleeves from Zensah, not for wakeboarding but for running. good fit, easy towash and they don't stretch out.

I have never had a problem with my legs, but I would consider the models for the arm. I wonder if it would help with the old cable yank-arm. If anyone has experience, please post up.

They don't work that way. It is a compression garment. They help reduce lactic acid build up in muscles and speed up recovery. Great for leg training and so on.

Good news. The entire ArmorSkin product line is coming stateside!

In partnership with Gamzi, Inc. we are re-branding the product line under the new global name "EnerSkin" (UnderArmour didn't want us selling here in the US under the original name too much :()

Anyway, we are in the process of updating the factory to generate EnerSkin branded and packaged items with official U.S. sizes. This should be complete in a month or so.

The entire line (sleeves, shirts, etc.) will be available soon on our US website www.EnerSkinAmerica.com and hopefully at a retailer near you.

This is real, official and happening - not a knockoff - we have partnered with Gamzi, Inc. out of Korea.

Please tune into www.EnerSkinAmerica.com for more info....and e-mail me if you want to be kept updated on when the products are available.

Thanks,
John
