They are definitely a couple of inches shorter than the Normatecs. For me, I have to remember to lift the old boys out of place in the Normatecs otherwise the boys can get pinched off and that does not feel good. The Air Relax are long enough to cover pretty much everything that you need ie all the way up the quads and hamstrings.
Just had my first go with the air relax, if I leave my foot in what looks like a foot/ankle section they're a good few inches from the top of my legs, with the 3rd chamber around the knee.
I can pop my foot out the bottom though and then get them all the way up to the top of my legs, then the top chamber gets some nice compression on the top of the quads.
Anyone else tried sticking their foot completely out the bottom? (Nb. Boots are the dark blue ones)
Yes they are a good couple of inches depending on your height. They are going to be coming out with longer boots at some point for those people who want them. I will say, that, when I do sit in my Normatec, I have to remember to lift the boys out of the way, or spread the legs pretty fair apart. I don't like to talk about my boys too often, but if I don't keep the legs apart, or left them up, they can get pinched quite easily.
I just had a nearly 3 hour call with Normatec the other day and learned a lot about the company in the process. The pair I got in May is going back for an evaluation.
Regardless, probably the best time of the year to pick up them. I know the price of Air Relax will be going up by about $25 sometime early next year. In addition, Normatec has had some aggressive pricing too offering $200 off. I can imagine their promotion might come to an end as well. When I looked into boots last year, heavy in training in late spring, the best deal I could muster was the typical $100 off.
