Matthew Chapman, one of Sydney’s most sought after personal trainers, and the founder of PocJox, the active compression wear brand with sweat-resistant fitted pockets, shares his top tips for travelling with compression gear.


  1. You always want to be comfortable when flying, especially on long haul flights. Leg room is minimal and you’re basically folding yourself like origami to find a comfortable position to sleep in, and not to mention having to deal with muscle cramps and needing to constantly stretch to keep the blood rushing through your body. That’s why I always wear my PocJox shorts under my track pants on a flight. They provide the extra comfort and support you need on a long journey, with breathable compression fabric providing improved circulation and reduced muscle containment.

  2. Either worn on its own or under your garments while travelling, PocJox activewear is a convenient way to carry your essentials securely. Our compression tights, shorts and half shorts feature concealed sweat-resistant pockets to store your phone, card, cash and keys with ease and comfort, perfect for trips where you don’t want to lug a handbag or backpack around.

  3. PocJox tights and shorts are a year-round saviour for weather woes while travelling. Keep a pair handy in your luggage as added insulation in cold weather climates as the fabric compacts heat in its material. During the warmer months, contrary to myth, our perspiration allows for evaporative air cooling, which means the passing airflow will keep you cool in summer.

  4. Have a full day of sightseeing with the family planned? Make yourself more comfortable with a pair of PocJox activewear. Not only will you have the support of our comfortable, breathable tights, but compression garments have been proven to enhance performance and reduce the risk of muscle injury. Plus, for those parents who already have to juggle over-excited children, we’ve made your life a little easier with fitted pockets for your phone, card and keys that’s safe, comfortable and convenient. It’s a win-win.

  5. PocJox activewear is made from moisture-wicking, performance enhancing fabrics — perfect for active lifestyle activities such as hiking, backpacking or biking. PocJox shorts are the smallest but most useful addition to your wardrobe, allowing for optimal comfort and support whilst adding the convenience of pockets so you can workout handsfree.

  6. Travelling light is a constant battle for some of us, but PocJox has got you covered. A basic black full length pair of tights is a staple in any wardrobe, as it coordinates with so many different items of clothing in your wardrobe. A pair of PocJox is also easy to clean and dries fast — great for travellers who do their washing in their hotel rooms. Including a pair in your luggage will help you save some much needed space as well keep your fashion game strong.
