I have used these tights for alpine skiing and really can say they have made my legs fatigue a lot less. After a long run, top to bottom, my legs sometimes feel a little tired but never sore like they were before wearing the tights. I just don't get that burn from working the quads, calves, and hamstring after a long hard run.
I have heard of people wearing them after events to help recover and prevent lactic acid build up but I've never tried them after, only during...
They are also great if you get sore from standing on cold concrete for a lengthy time. I have worn them to watch many a winter little league game when it's cold on the bench but standing makes you sore, these tights really help.
They are not thermals so if you're in extreme cold, wear an extra layer. if you're warm like me, they do just fine! Be sure to use the tie at the top to keep them from sliding down as nobody likes that "plumber action" :-)
I have had 2 different sizes of tights and like the smaller size more. If you're in between sizes go smaller as they seem to provide even more support and relief when they're a little tighter.
On the 5th time wearing these tights as I was pulling them on, they tore through the material (not along the seem, but the material itself). I double checked that I had the right size for my height and weight (which I did) and I double checked that I was putting them on the way the instructions stated (which I was). I called Backcountry and they immediately sent out a replacement pair of tights. In the 4 times I had worn these tights before they ripped, I had done speed work and an 8-miler in 30-40 degree temps without any chaffing. They felt great. I look forward to testing this replacement set and am hoping that it was just an anomoly. In any case, I was extremely impressed with Backcountry.com.
I've run several 6-12 mile runs in these since I got them, and so far am definitely satisfied. Most of my runs have been in mid/high 30 degree tempature range. They allow a good amount of insulation, while still allowing wicking during my runs.I was a bit of a skeptic on the knee support of the fabric, but I have to say, it has been a comfortable improvement.
These are super sweet underneath my Don Joy knee brace, i always have issues with my brace sliding down during a ski day, but with these honestly they helped so much. I am 5'9" and 145 pounds, and a small fit me very good, they are warm, and keep the warm in while skiing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for Knee support.
