CWX Pro Tight Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I love these tights for the looks and the ingenious anatomic design and fit. They make you feel like you care for your body and when being outside for a run it seems people would pick up on that.
I'm actually in early stages of running on a regular base and these tights are a life-savers. I'm still adjusting my body to the strenuous activity of running so finding the optimal balance between pushing my body to a maximum and avoiding excessive strains which would require longer recovery time is crucial.
The CW-X Pro tights are doing an excellent job, while running I feel this kind of smoothness and support in my movements and at the same time feeling almost like 'spring-loaded'. After running I like to keep them on for an extended time, I do notice how the compression helps to reduce muscle soreness. I also happen to actually sleep in them after my activities, it may be just me however I'm always amazed how my legs feel pretty well recovered the next day.
I've got one or two gripes about them since the fit on my body could be optimized:
I'm 6'0", 165lbs and took size M, where I also find myself in their sizing chart. As mentioned, the compression is great and feels just awesome on my legs. However: I've got some longer built legs and when having the conditioning web properly aligned with my knees, the distance between knees and crotch feels too short and the tights 'sag down' while running, leaving some kind of weird-feeling gap between my crotch and the tights. This propagates up to the waist where they eventually slide down to my pelvis bones and are pulling on them. I find myself pulling the hem up regularly which is annoying, and which is defeating the purpose of supporting the lower back. As it has been already mentioned, I too find the distance between crotch and waist too short. When resting or sleeping this is of course no issue :-) however I primarily would want the most perfect fit when being out and active.
Thus, perfect fit for me would be:
- 1 inch longer from the knee down to the ankle
- 1 inch longer from the knee up to the crotch
- 1 inch longer from crotch up to waist.
Having said that, if CW-X had an additional 'tall'-sizing for each of their size, it would be an absolute winner. As a direct comparison, the compression tights by 'SKINS' offer this versatile sizing option, for tall AND for short people. For the anatomic professionalism CW-X offers, it would be just appropriate if they'd offer this kind of wide range of sizing options too.
One tip: I found out that after washing and wearing them a few times they get softer and even more comfy; they felt kinda stiff in their brand-new condition.
Last but not least, a feature which I find incomprehensible and consider very unprogressive compared to the otherwise anatomic amaze they offer, is the seam around the crotch is still conventionally seamed instead featuring a flat-lock seam. I trust they will change to a flat-lock seam in future versions of CW-X tights.
To sum it up, the CW-X Pro tights are amazing ingenious piece of garment, and when introducing a flat-lock seam and additional sizing choices, it would be a class-leading winner in every aspects.
I would have given them a 5-star rating since I love them, however due to the optimization potential I found it's fair to offer 4 stars, while the one remaining star is for giving CW-X the motivational message that there's still room for reaching the goal "Class-Leading" and "Outstanding".

I purchased 4 pairs of the CW-X tights, Stabilyx and Pro Tights, and the Insulator version of both. Also bought the tri-top and love it. All from Zappos because of the overnight shipping and generous return policy. I have run several 5K and 10K runs in them as well as train in them every day. The quality is superior to every other brand I looked at or owned. They beat Underarmour, Opedix, 2Xu in the quality of the material hands down. As to helping with muscle fatigue, it works fabulously for me. Night and day difference with my running shorts. I don't wear my shorts anymore. I do plan on purchasing the CW-X tri-short and pro short when spring rolls around. I am a believer in them now. I wash them after every use in a front loader and air dry as recommended. One thing you must do before first wash is trim the waist drawstrings and burn off the edge or they will fray terribly. Buy them and you will be happy. Or try others and I know it is wasted money. I have a closet of the other stuff.

I have had these tights for approx a month and a half and have wore these tights many times to date for my 1am run in northern Florida and have worked out good for me provided the temp is around 60 and below; to hot otherwise.
The biggest issue was trying to get the right size as I fell between small and medium. I took the recommendations of the website and sized up and I am glad I did and they fit perfectly for my body shape and size.
As far as road racing performance, these work very very well for me. I've used and still use at times UA tights, I prefer the pro tights over UA for racing 5k,10k, 13.1 ect... they tend to stay in place and latic acid build up has been minimized in the calf and quads. With that said, if you have to use the restroom... plan ahead, you see where I'm going with this, but this is to expected.
Personally, I really like these tights for the road and look forward to getting a vented pair for summer.

The good: Theses tights give great support. They are great for cold weather running. They wick well and can be used in a range of temperatures from the 40's to single digits. Overall very pleased, except...
The bad: They have a funky fit. To get them to fit and stay in place I have to pull them very high - since I'm 6'3" that brings them above my ankles. Not a big deal since I don't care what I look like and socks can cover that. But I have to pull them way high on my torso and tie them up tight - or they start sagging down. I pretty much have the system down, but it was a real pain at first. The good far outweighs the bad, though.

SUPPORT FOR THOSE KNEES

I had purchased a pair for my wife for Christmas last year. I had surgery in July of 2005 on my left menicus. I have other strains with my knee that complicate ( but no surgery ). I was looking for more support because I like to run outside once a week in the winter. The COLD weather ( I live in Michigan ) works against my knee when temperatures fall below 40 degrees. My first run and only run with these pants was at 20 plus degrees and they did everything I wanted them to do. My knee was still chilled but, I felt more relaxed on my run and knew I had the extra added support.

No muscle fatigue

I would highly recommend this product. I run 5-7 times per week, anywhere from 5-10 miles. I live at the top of a steep hill and end every run climbing that hill. It is a great litmus test on how my legs are feeling. With these tights I noticed an immediate improvement in the endurance of my legs. I have been able to increase my mileage and if anything my legs feel fresher than ever, even with the increased mileage. I also have the Stablyx model. I find rotating between the different styles to be helpful. Read the details of the various models as they do support different muscles groups.

enforment in the right places

My first impression of the tights was that they look really great. They are also very slimmed against the body and since the fabric is very elastic, they stay close to the skin for most legs.
The only thing I worry about is that I've noticed some loose stitches in the crutch, they may get worse, but so far, it's still all good.
I my case, I was to short for the perfect fit of these pants. I'm 172cm, and they are actually pretty big for me, so I have to pull them up very often
The Swedish sprinter at Paragon Sports on 01/01/2007

Great performance and pretty

I use the CW-X pro tights exclusively for running. The fit is perfect and there is absolutely no chaffing. The tights give your legs a little extra spring and reduce muscle fatigue. My shin splints have all but disappeared due to the proper form of the compression straps. The tights aren't all that warm but insulation would probably decrease their effectiveness. The one thing I would like to see is a locking slide for the waist, retying is cumbersome in cold weather and if the tights slide down they don't work properly.

Run faster with these pants!

I have had knee surgery and it supports and allows the muscles and tendons surrounding my knee stay warm. When I run below 35 degrees, and put in a long 10 - 15 mile training run, the minute I stop running I can feel my knee. It has nothing to do with the pants! It is just cold outside. I love these pants and I purchased this second pair just in case the others have not gone through the wash yet.

Compression Greatly Reduces Fatigue

I bought these tights because I wanted to see how it compared to other tights. I wanted to reduce the soreness & fatigue I receive after a workout.

And these tights certainly do the job. I wear these for a couple hours after the workout to continue its healing process. And I noticed a difference between these and regular tights. They provide support to my hamstrings, calves, buttocks, and lower back.

Negative Reviews:

Yes, i understand compression tights are supposed to be tight. But getting into these is like putting on a sausage casing. For folks above 150lbs, getting dressed may end up being the hardest part of the workout.

Brendan Quirk at Backcountry.com on 05/05/2012

Neutral Reviews:

I like these tights as I feel like they give me some special support and compression when exercising.
Trail Running: They are great unless there is a chance of ever having a tiny bit of bushwhacking or overgrown trail. Then, as you can see in my photo - they will be torn to shreds.
Backcountry Skiing: Again I love the support. However for backcountry skiing I need to be able to pee without having to untie them every time. If I don't tie them tight, they fall down and you end up fighting the crotch every step. Although they give great support, they are not good for backcountry skiing because they MUST be tied.
