Forbes Holiday Gift Guide: For the Skier and Snowboarder on Your List

Author: Larry Olmsted

Find out why Larry Olmsted won't ski without his Opedix tights and how they just might be the perfect gift for the skier in your life:

"Compression undergarments promising endurance and recovery have swept through active sports like wildfire, but Opedix is special because they throw in a huge bonus – knee protection. When I tested them last winter, both alpine skiing and backcountry skinning, I definitely felt more endurance and less fatigue afterwards, and more recovered the next day. But they were developed primarily for skiers with weak knees or injuries, and are the only long underwear you will find on the planet that were developed in collaboration with the world famous Steadman Clinic and Steadman Phillipon Research Institute, in Vail, where so many professional athletes go to get their knees worked on."
