We made a tougher compression calf sleeve
MudGear was born to do what nobody else could do; make performance socks and sleeves resilient enough to withstand outdoor race conditions and tough enough to help protect racers from the cuts, rope burns, and other injuries common in obstacle course racing.
They Said It Couldn't Be Done - They Forgot About American Muscle
The American sock industry has a long history of quality engineering, but cheap labor gave rise to importing. While others cut costs and cut corners, we knew the world's toughest and best calf sleeves should be designed and made in the USA. Leveraging decades of experience with top brands, our designers are experts in the technology of performance sock and sleeve construction.
Using Premium Yarns and Strong Construction
The difference comes from starting with American yarn blends that are chosen for their durability and comfort. Next, we engineered our calf sleeves to achieve specific performance results for their strength and abrasion resistance. We built a true graduated compression profile that is optimized for athletic performance and recovery. In layman's terms, our calf sleeves stay put and make your legs feel great.
And Tested In The Worst Conditions Possible
Normal testing of compression calf sleeves involves stretching them to measure the strength and passing them through a simple abrasion test to see how quickly they show wear. Our testing involves putting them on the world's top obstacle racers and trail runners for trips up and down mountains all day in all types of weather. We test for wicking by fully submerging them in muddy water, and we test abrasion by climbing up and down ropes.
Through It All, We Were Made Tougher
Nobody said it was going to be easy. We heard a lot of "it's not done that way" and "it's not practical". But all the trials and trails made us tougher, and we're now proud to offer the world's best comprssion calf sleeves for Spartan Race, trail running, rucking, or whatever outdoor adventure you think of next.
Didn’t know what I was missing!
Fantastic compression that’s also easy to take off and pairs well with your favorite socks. I have mud gear compression socks which are nice but are very hard to get off and I prefer running in toe socks which help me with toe blisters. When running mountain OCR races I want both the toe socks and compression and these sleeves are the answer! Love them. Great fit and great quality. Excited to try them out at the Spartan NJ ultra
I am confident that calf compression has helped my calves not cramp on the hills of Killington. Partnered with my ridiculous training. I have tried both long socks and compression calf from MudGear and the calf compression wins with a toe socks. I wish MudGear would do toe socks compression.
Mudgear & Spartan Beast
I loved my new compression calf sleeves. I've worn the socks before and they are great. This was my first time with the calf sleeves. They held up great during my spartan beast this past weekend. I'll definitely be wearing them on future OCR's & hikes.
Best compression socks ever! I am a Challenged Athlete, and need leg compression during run/bike events. My original purchase was of the Mudgear high top socks, which worked fine for running when wearing Hokas, but the material is too thick in the foot section for the SIDI road shoes I use with my adaptive race trike. And the arch support on the high top socks was a bit too tight on my weak side foot (because of the disability, not the fault of the sock). I reached out to MudGear and tried the calf compression sleeve for use with some quality road cycling specific 2" and 4" cuff compression socks: Problem solved - my PTs and cardioplogy team were also impressed with the product! So I will save the high top mudgear socks for training runs, and will use the MudGear calf sleeves and cycling compression socks for training rides and Ironman 70.3 events. Only regret is I should have ordered orange for more visibility on the recumbent race trike, but can solve that when I order another pair of both socks and calf sleeves!
Mud gear calf compression sleeves
These sleeve are amazing! Ran 13miles in a team really thia past Saturday and they didn't disappoint keeping my lower legs from getting sore! Solid product!
Great service, fast delivery and outstanding quality
Loved having these sleeves. Kept my calves feeling fresh for 35 miles and 7400 ft of elevation and 72 obstaces With lots of bush whacking
