I have had these Compression pants for almost a month now and I fell in love with them from day one. I'm 5'7, 140lbs and athletically built. I ordered a size small and was very concerned when I opened the package. At first glance they look like a pair of skinny pants my 10 year old niece would wear! But once I pulled them on (not as difficult as I thought it would be) they fit like a dream! These pants are an enormous help in muscle & joint control. Before using these I had pain in my knees and my quads, hamstrings and calfs would get tired and sore fairly quickly. I use these for every run, plyometric and HIIT training. I no longer have an inner battle of feeling like I have to stop my training because of pain & fatigue in my legs while the rest of me still has the stamina to keep going! They also keep my body temperature perfectly regulated while wicking moisture away. All in all, I couldn't give these a higher recommendation!

I've never worn compression tights until this purchase. To be honest, it took an act of god (perhaps the running god?) to get into them. There are instructions on the package stating how to put them on, but quite frankly, the scene in the house was like something out of a Saturday Night Live skit. Anyway, I am 5'2", 125 lbs, cycled for years, enjoyed microbrews for years (with no cycling), and consequently have fairly thick legs. Based on the opinions here, I bought a medium and am happy that I did. They were a tad binding around the back of the knees, but I have to admit, they felt good while running and my knees felt better when done. They were a little long for me, but hobbitses aren't known for their fairy-like legs. I'll defintely be purchasing another pair.

This garment is worth every penny. I'm not a runner, but an avid walker and they genuinely do a fabulous job in keeping my legs fatigue free. I indulge in a daily 5 mile trex with my dogs. From a fashion point of view, they're quite attractive, though initially a wee bit difficult to get on. After 1st attempt, it's pretty much easy going. Roll them up as you would panty hose and viola you're off and walking/ running. There's no sagging and bagging with these puppies. Wash with Woolite in cold water, gentle cycle and hang to dry. I'm a 5'ter, 98 lbs and the xs, fits perfectly. For taller individuals, the length will of course be more Capri-ish. Absolutely fabulous and functional. Worth every penny and Zappos customer service is outstanding to say the least.

The CW-X PreformX Tights are a must-have for any runners' wardrobe. Anyone looking for a great compression pant will not be disappointed. The fit is tight - as expected - but my legs, hips, and calves have felt so much better since running in these tights. There is absolutely no chaffing; no problems on my 20 mile run. The waist hits just below the belly button and you will need to use the drawstring to keep them in place. The bottom hits just above the ankle. Great quality and worth the price. I am 5'4" and 120 training for a marathon. Size small was perfect. I just received CW-X compression shorts for my warmer weather runs and they are awesome if you are looking for a warmer weather alternative.

I ordered these on a whim after reading the comments one day before the ING-half marathon and they were superb. I normally run in shorts, never again. I was not hot and they were super comfortable. My knees normally hurt like heck after mile 3 no pain whatsoever! They were attractive, comfortable and well worth the price. I am 5'9 and 150 and the medium is a great fit. Go CW-X go Zappos!

I have previously purchased XW-X Insulator Expert tights and they were phenomenal! I decided to buy the Performx and check it out. I am 5'1" and XS on the Insulator fit perfectly, so I ordered the same size for the Performx. Unfortunately, when they arrived, I could barely pull them past my thighs. They were a lot smaller!
I'd highly recommend you try them on at a sports store before purchasing online!

I purchased these compression tights for use under my ski pants, and for general sports use. For skiing, they were really helpful in reducing fatigue and knee pain. I am looking forward to using them under my sailing gear when spring arrives. They would likely be too warm for me in summer. I will likely buy another pair, I like them so much.

I would buy this product again

I use these tights for running long distances and they work great. I have knee problems from time to time and they definately helps to releive the pain. At first it didnt help but after awhile I start to feel the benifit. The crotch starts to wear out after awhile and thats not a good thing. Overall great product.

I'm 5'5", 165lbs and bought the medium, so I was initially intimidated by the fit of these tights. However, when I realized it was like putting on stockings they were perfect. "Don't be scared ladies"... It's like putting on your favorite skinny jeans and realizing hey I can really fit these.

I now own 3 pair of CW-X compression deals. I have the shorts, the capris, and now these. These are great for winter running, and the support they give makes a Huge difference in recover from longer runs. Just remember that these are the lighter side of support for compression.

Negative Reviews:

Did anybody else find that the crotch on these pants were a bit too low?

Neutral Reviews:

I should have gotten a size bigger. I'm 5'9" and have a large athletic build (i'm a rower). I ordered a Large. I got these for running and rowing in cold weather. Although the fact they are so tight is very flattering, within a couple months the crotch of my tights busted.They are also short, inches above the ankle short. I've been compromising for months now but have recently decided to see if CW-X will take them back under warranty... I want a new pair though, they're awesome!
