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.

    • Now that you are excited about what is ahead of 2020, uncle shall end last post in this forum with this local video production which have inspired uncle to Run Around Singapore. Enjoy.       Wishing all, your families, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  End
    • my dear @Lady Ice, let uncle explains simply... Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda The Abbott World Marathon Majors is a series consisting of currently 7 of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world. Wanda Group or Dalian Wanda (Chinese: 大连万达), is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. China's Wanda buys Ironman Triathlon owner for $650 million. Wanda 大连万达 markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. IAAF provides the sanctioned Road Race Labels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) Rules and Regulations to any country which want to host must meet the strict selection trial required as entry to the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Invitation to World ranking runners must be regional, not continental only. Singapore, being having the financial resources, has the advantage. The disadvantage is the size of participants. So to increase the size and qualifying runners, she needs to invite also regional runners to participate. Expect STPB (like what @lonewolf said) to aggressively promote the Hub of Marathons.  
    • Ok - so am old lah 😛 - been  on this forum for far too long...
    • Saga 1: The SA's internal carding system - which allocates athletes up to $1,200 per month based on various criteria - had expired month without the necessary follow-up. (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/officials-say-track-body-must-sort-out-disputes)   Saga 2: Against paying Singapore Athletics share of award money  (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/football/soh-against-paying-sa-share-of-award)   Summary: Soh (did not take part), Michelle Sng (did not win a Gold Medal), and Shanti Veronica Pereira ( Collected 2 Bronzes), the 2 Sagas will not affect Shanti Veronica Pereira because she can stay on with the $1,200 monthly allowance, happily with her Coach, and she gets her 2-Bronze Award for her Performance (and surely gladly give 20% to SA). SA will be delighted with the 2-year Excellence Peak Performance Program till 2021. The greatest loser in the Sagas is Soh because he will not have both - $1,200 monthly allowance, and already based on his PB, he could have collect a Gold Medal from 2019 SEA Games with an Award of $10,000. Even if he will be unwilling to share with the 20% to SA. SA only loss "$2,000" but save $1,200 monthly allowance for Soh for the next 2 years (savings of $28,800). SA -+$28,600 vs Soh -$10,000 - $28,800 (2020-2021) As for Michelle, she already said she wants to retire in 2017, but the surprise Gold Medal on that year makes her a defending Champion. Pain, Injury and Tears - for every jump. Plus she has reached beyond 30, and to be family-focused should be her entitlement in life. High Jump has given her a sporting life and to announce her honourable retirement from the call of Nation. It will be expected. SA - which has been controversial from the core. Change the whole SA? How many times have SA changed? Life as Usual. No change is better then to Change. Whatever. Marathon has been a Gold Medal for SEA Games. We will surely make a comeback. Without SA, marathoning is the only key spark in Athletics that even without $1,200 monthly allowance, Mok and Soh can be regional champions. So you know what Mok's Saga with SA, "Uncle, you say lah, the $1,200 monthly allowance, don't have money how to go overseas for marathon qualification mark closer to SEA Games, use personal paylah!" Now, everyone knows what is SAga is about right? "Money Not Enough, how to run overseas Marathon races." "What I win, is all Mine not yours, SA."  "SA :  gain $28,600 vs Soh minus $10,000 minus $28,800 (2020-2021)" "Ashley Liew demands S$120,000 in damages from teammate Soh over ‘false’ claims about sportsmanship act still outstanding."   Uncle wishes Soh Gets Lots of Money for the year of the Metal Rat (2020).    
    • The shorter answer may be there are many IAAF races but only 7 WMM (at the moment). So its a combination of scarcity and prestige.  And one more thing. STPB no more P liao. STPB was established in 1964. Nowadays it just STB (since 1997!)
