I think Adidas concept shop at city link have some stocks. Got mine Adidas formation tights using Sundown discount a weeks ago. Original price at 85 after discount is 65. Have a lower end range which is thicker seller at 65 before discount. You might want to try you luck there

Any recommendation for compression tights with zipper pocket at the back?

compression tights do not have zippers, that's the downside... but think Nike got sell training tights with zipper but it's not as tight as compression tights.

I was toying with the idea of getting a new set of compression apparels when I came across this article “Study suggests that compression clothing has little impact on Athletic Performance” from http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/06/100603140955.htm.

I don’t know about you folks, I am now thinking twice before forking out extra cashes on something that might potentially does nothing for me.

Just tried running with my new 2XU half tights this morning. I feel that the compression isn't that solid even though I got the smallest XXS size. Maybe I am abit on the thin side :D

Which brand provides greater compression ? Zoot, SKIN ?

Tried Sugoi compression long tights size S at Running Lab today & it feels the right fit.

Went to a shop in Peninsular wanting to try Skin Compression Long tights but the lady refuse saying due to hygiene reason. She said the sizing chart confirm correct, so no need to try.

Anyone knows where else that allows trying of Skin or 2XU Compression tights? I wanna be super sure before buying since some of the bros here mention that a size smaller might be better.

alv77 for 2XU you can try out at Novena Square second floor. The sales staffs is very helpful. I tried out both the Elite and normal version long tights without buying but they are still very helpful and keen in giving advices and whether the size fit you well. 2 thumbs up services. As for Skin, I did not know where to get.

Anyone can give some comments on Ace Compression tights?

I tried Sugoi at Running Lab & feels just nicely wrapped.

Zoot feels hot & too thick for me.

i hv the 2XU elite, Skins A400 series, and the CWX Pro

in my view, the CWX pro feels the most supportive, but its quite thick so not very suitable for our climate

Skins is between CWX pro and 2xu in terms of how supportive it feels. Thinner than CWX, wore this for SCMS with no complaints

2xu looks the nicest to me and is the thinnest, but i dont feel like it offers much support to the muscles. No pocket also. CWX and Skins both have a small pocket

Have both 2XU and Zoot.

- 2XU : much easier to wear compared to Zoot. But the compression "loosen" after few months of wearing. Initially feel cooling (like naked) and not used to it but subsequently feel comfortable.

- Zoot : Much tighter than 2XU and not easy to wear initial few times; sweat alot during 1st time after wearing.... looks like X-man after wearing. Material thicker than 2XU but don't feel the thickness during run. Also don't seem to get wet easily during washing.

Both very good for after runs, don't feel any muscle ache or sore the next day after long runs.

    • The only local race that returns 100% Refund - NTUC Income EcoRun 2020 Entry fee was the financial transaction which we agreed to take part in the race with the stipulation of R&R agreed with the organizer on the force majeure clause. Hence, I believe the new legislation can outlawed the force majeure clause... Uncle stands firmly on this because the act of force majeure is enforced in SG (revoke on the obligation of previous agreement to the force majeure clause of No Refund). Any dispute of Full Refund can now be settled with the Law Minister for consideration in this new legislation. Question is how many would want to stand up collectively? Thanks to @beast, you sounded like you can be in the legal professional. Again, any consideration of Refund is definitely good for Loyalty Participants as well as those who are on the sideline looking at how Race Organizer (aka Pink Apple Pte Ltd) responds as an obligated professional contractual service to Runners during Covid-19. Will the same professional service rendered in the past be the same in the postponed races in the future? Uncle doubted with much reservation because of the expectation that new "sanitized" races of the future will involve more administrative cost due to enhanced measures to make sure races are complied to local authority new guidelines for events. Such example could be restrictions to Events from Thousands to only Hundreds to only Tens. Then how?  In current CB, we are not to meet for any non-essential reason. Then we cannot gather even with up to 10 (That was how the second postpone due to Covid-19 was the reason). Previously was we cannot gather even with up to 250 (That was how the first postpone due to Covid-19 was the reason). 😷 A year ago in 2019...Past Event Race results for the 2XU Compression Run Singapore 2019 held April 7 have not been released due to payment issues (info - https://mybestruns.com/running-news.php/3221)     Please, none of the competitive prize money has been paid (according to the report), don't punish the runners was in 2019. Now this is the time to fulfill your contractual obligations for Full Refund in 2020 to 10,000 - 15,000 participants. If at just $70 per participant, you are obligated for up to $1 million for Full Refund...wah...no wonder under force majeure clause...what if it is revoked?
    • I view it as how well you want to argue this. For me I would actually consider our "full registration fee" as "full deposit", because the service that is promised to us was not yet delivered when we make the payment. Hence the payment can be viewed as a as a pledge of contract in the form of deposit, where we pay first and expect the service that we paid for to be delivered later.  If we can take it from that perspective, then I believe the new legislation can outlawed the force majeure clause. But of course, I am no lawyer.
    • glad to know that action has been taken...and glad to know that some here have had their refunds...locals as well as overseas... please updates...for we are here to be "awakened" because of Covid-19...how Refund process takes place...so that we can expect Post Covid-19...a policy on how long with a Refund process would be expected... The 12th edition of the the OSIM Sundown Marathon Singapore saw close to 25,000 participants...yes, agree...expect more time if all 25,000 participants would want Full Refund... if $50 on average x 25,000...factoring races from 5km to Full Marathon....wah $1.25 million....will have to be paid out.... Another Full Refund (with no option to transfer slot to 2021) is in progess will be @ NTUC Income Run 2020....3-4 more weeks outstanding...that one is about 9,000 in 2019....
    • Yes, do give them some time. The participation for Sundown is usually more than 10K. If majority requests for refund, it will definitely take time.
    • hello@sundownmaration.com (infinitus) replied to you "refund was still under administrative process"..ok 👌 uncle upgrade Sundown Marathon in 2021 from "negative" to "neutral" status for meeting the goal of participants who opt for refund instead of transfering slot to 2021..in the year 2020... very soon, we shall be saying goodbye@sundownmarathon.com in 2020....it has been a memorial sundown marathon edition...the race was cancelled..because of Covid-19. 😷
