Compression socks? Absolutely. Compression tights? Sure. Compression shirts? We were skeptical. With an impressive array of technical features, the Effektor Powershirt hugs your body in all the right places to counterbalance the centrifugal force created by your arm swing—letting blood circulate through your body faster.

We liked the concept, but this super-tight tee may feel too restrictive for some runners. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes.
