Don't be scared when you pull these out of the bag -- they look way too small, but they do give enough for you to be able to wiggle them on. Once there they work great -- I don't get the knee pain I experience when I'm running without them. I had a bad experience with the CW-X Stabilyx tights because the space for the knee didn't line up right with my kneecap, so it actually ended up irritating it terribly. This tight, however, isn't that exacting about position, but still offers tons of support. Great for running, and know it will be great for snowboarding, too.
The CW-X 3/4 length Pro Tights are awesome and worth the investment for anyone serious about being active. I actually used them for a chilly spring mountain bike ride and they kept me warm and supported. They are pretty darn tight to get on, but the support is worth the shimmy into them (I suggest no witnesses when getting dressed!). Make sure the knee cap fits just above the x-shape on the lower leg and you are in the right size.
I have the full-length tights for the winter, and now I love the 3/4 length for the summer. These tights offer great support to my quads and hamstrings. It just feels like they keep everything together and make the jiggle disappear. I am a true believer in CW-X!
I was excited to see these on sale, as I've had my eye on them for skiing but the regular price was a bit steep. They came very quickly and I immediately tried them on in my kitchen before I even got my jacket off!! I was SHOCKED at how small they were. I'm 5'1" 95lbs and I wear size 00P or 25 pants and the XS was FAR too tight. I knew that they were supposed to be snug but I couldn't wear these for more than a few minutes. Had to return them :( I'm bummed Backcountry doesn't have any size smalls right now.
My advice, order a size up.
