Are they any good?
Lidl have comprssion capris for £7.99. Are they any good? They look very shiny and are quite thin (don't want to expose myself, I'll leave that to the other thread in 'General'.
I've had Skins before but now have Saloman capris and they are by far the best - but also a lot more expensive. I think you get what you pay for and if you want good compression you'd need to pay a bit more.
I've had basic Aldi cycling gear and always found that to be good.
I bought some of the Lidl compression stuff last time they had it for sale but took it back for a refund - just not enough compression
I had heard good things about Lidl stuff but I was dubious about this. Thanks for that, glad I checked in, false economy to clutter my drawers with rubbish, that is never worn.
That would depend on whether you want the capris or the compression. Expect that capris are fine, but I wouldn't expect the compression to do much.
The compression vest is pretty good but I took the capris back. Not enough compression and not a brilliant fit. Also with a seam going right up the middle of one's lady garden not the most conmfortable for running in either!
I have a pair of Skins A200 and the difference is immense...
Must say I got a pair of lycra running shorts from Lidl, but had a seam straight down the middle that rubbed on a certain part of me that doesn't need rubbing. Good prices but poor design.
