It’s long past time to ditch your baggy sweats, dude.

As exercise clothes are becoming more streamlined, guys are embracing leggings. And if they’re not, they should. The tight-fitting lower layer offers a slew of benefits, especially if they’re made out of compression materials. Those snug garments can aid in promoting muscle recovery during and after workouts by increasing blood flow to your legs.

Whether you want the added benefits of the tight-fitting gear or not, you’ll cut a bold profile in the gym. You can wear compression pants as a base layer under shorts, or you can be really bold and rock them on their own, sans cover-up. For guys who aren’t exactly sure how much they want to show, you can even accessorize with a “dick towel,” à la The Rock, who is a proud leggings-wearer.

These 10 pairs of tights can serve as functional pieces of clothing, style statements, and recovery tools, making them some of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can put on your body.
