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.
