I bought these tights to run in during the winter months and I live in central Idaho, so it gets pretty chilly up here. The warmth factor is great! The fit factor is great! The way they feel when I'm running is great! I especially like the supportive feeling around my knees. My only negative remark is that they have a seam which runs down the entire length of the crotch. The seam is not flat locked, and runs from the front waistband down and up to the back waistband. I wore them on an 8 mile road run without underwear and learned the hard way it was a bad idea! I don't remember reading that you needed to wear underwear with them, but I guess that's totes necessary! The pain was pretty severe, and I almost quit running, called my wife and had her come pick me up...
Anyway, these are a great product and there's nothing wrong with the pair I bought. I'm just an idiot, and I hope you will learn from my mistake.
As my first pair of tights, I have nothing with which to compare. They seem very good. I've been running in cold humid weather (around -5 Celsius) and I've never felt cold during my run. They're definitely not wind-proof (not that they claim to be), I can feel the breeze when I walk outside before my run. They support very well and I it's possible that I'm experiencing less knee pain during longer runs. They're very tight, but they don't show your junk, which is nice. And they look cool! Overall I'm very happy.
