I love the 2xu tights, I wear them with no underwear but with shorts over the top. I have skins tights aswell but prefer the 2xu as soon as I got the sizing right . I wear the tights for running and cycling then wear my other skins recovery tights purely for recovery. Wearing 2xu & skins to train in then skins recovery afterwards my legs do feel better whether it's the tights or in the mind I don't know . I find the skins and 2XU equally as good as each other.
