1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't sweet much at all, i'm curious though which you guys would recommend between the two: nike Pro or UA?

    try them on. i like the UA tops, but the shorts are too long and baggy.

    if you don't sweat much and don't need the compression to fit under a jersey etc i'd go withsomething looser i.e. nike sphere. I throw a lot of nike out there but thats simply cause i have a lot of experience with it so i am not discounting the fact there are other plausible choices out there

    not all UA apparel is compression fit. they have looose fit line.

    also, i'm very picky about socks, and my favorites are new balance. ask for the running socks that prevent blisters. i use them for everything, including tennis and soccer.

    I quite like the Champion C9 stuff available at Target.

    Just as moisture wicking as my Nike Dri-Fit shirts and shorts, but a heckuva lot cheaper.

    Under Armour is great. Keeps you cool and is easy to move in. Also, it's very good quality. Plus, you can always wear a cotton T-shirt overtop of it if you don't feel comfortable wearing skin-tight clothes.

    Wait, you smell that?
    Nike Dri-Fit has awesome gear that wicks away the sweat, is not too clingy, and is very breathable.

    I would also suggest trying Under Armour. That's made for more athletic endeavors.

    ha, this is a funny thread, just the other day we were at the gym discussing what a great invention LLL pants were for the female gender.

    But PLEASE listen.

    i live in vancouver, and you will NOT find any self-respecting male wearing LLL. Stick with the expected sources: nike, adidas, under armour for youre regular gym atire. the VERY few guys you see wearing LLL are not guys you want to emulate in style or physique.

    please, if you are male, do not start wearing LLL. but do encourage them tight ass pants for the women.

    ...high-intensity training,..., like kickboxing, wind sprints, basketball, soccer.

    These are referred to as plyometrics.

    Really? I'll admit LLL is played out beyond belief (especially in BC) but their stuff, especially their shorts, are incredibly comfortable and are designed to allow a maximum range of motion. Moreover, their stuff lasts. I have a pair of shorts from them I bought when they first started offering guys stuff that have survived a couple worldwide treks and hundreds of hikes. Although, I've never bought anything full price so I'm a bit biased...and yes, I encourage all ladies with the the physique to use the wonderous joy that is LLL stretch pants. A.
