Love my CW-X Shorts!!!
I am training in the CW-X Pro Shorts to run my first marathon in November, and I love them! If in doubt, I recommend sizing up. Technically, my height/weight put me in a Medium, which I run comfortably in (have 2 pair). I also have a size large, which I think is a bit more comfortable. You definately get what you pay for in these shorts. I can't wait until Spring 2010 when CW-X launches a new Stabilyx short which will be longer than the Pro Fit, but shorter than the Pro + it will be ventilated to help with running in my Texas heat!
No leg fatigue during a marathon
I used this short in my first marathon. They were amazing. I have the CW-X Stabilyx tights also which have been fantastic - but since the weather was going to be warm for the Marathon, I purchased these Pro-shorts. At mile 22 I clearly remember looking down and thinking the area between my knees and my waist (where the shorts fit) was the thing on my body feeling the best. Where the shorts fit, continued to remain the fresh and strong though-out the complete Marathon - feeling no fatigue in the lower back, quad, hips, hamstring areas. Absolutely amazing!
Will Buy this Product again!!
This is my second pair. Unfortunately, they have limited the color selection from what I remember. I am an instructor at my local Y so they get plenty of use from muscle to cycling. They finally started to wear in the inner thigh and developed a hole thus my reason for the second pair. The first pair I had for close to 3 years. I luv how CW-X feels and how the compression does what it says it does.
Great support in a running short
These have a true compression fit -- very tight, but not an uncomfortable tight. You can really feel that they support your muscles -- they are not at all constricting. I had a stress fracture in my hip last year and have been looking for something to help support that area. I have the CW-X Stabylix tights and love them, so I thought I'd give the shorts a try -- love them as well!
Great for running
Size seems to run small. Had to go up a size from what was recommended for my height and weight. The larger size is still somewhat tight, but not restrcting and definitely provided the compression and support that my legs needed. Just wore them for a half marathon and for the first time in months had no pyriformis pain .The material is a little too thick for extremely warm weather.
Size does not equate to pant size
Using this to recuperate following hamstring injury. Love the length and support of the shorts. Needed to have access to sizing chart on the shorts...the first pair was too small (I am a size 6 and bought a small) If you are tall, you will probably need at least a medium.
I would buy this product again and again
This is a great running, biking, training in the gym pant! I really have bought the cwx pants in all sizes for all the different seasons of the year! You just can't go wrong with these. To get the size right check all your measurements.
Awesome shorts. Took a couple wears to get use to them. Was not sure about the size at first. Of course how do you really know until you wear them during a workout?? Does everything they say they would do.
Would recommend this item for anyone from workouts to bike riding. Love the way it fits and makes your legs feel with the "wrap around" support. Have bought another pair already and plan to try the tights next.
These seem to run a little small - hard to get on, and in the right place, but once on are very comfortable and very supportive! I feel good when I run in 'em!
