These are true compression tights and as such fit much snugger than a regular running tight. I contacted the company directly prior to purchasing to double-check their sizing chart. I went by the CW-X chart and their reps' recommendation. These tights come with special directions describing how to put them on -- follow it. They are more like womens nylons in this way and should be positioned properly and really snug for the stability fabric to do its job. I've been training in these on my runs (3-10 miles) in the New England winter (6F-36F degrees) and they keep me warm enough for this type of activity and do a decent job of hampering the wind. I recently had a small pull in my quad muscle days before a race -- the tights helped significantly in supporting my leg for the race (I was even able to set a PR!). Tights are well made and look good on. I'm saving up for another pair and will be getting their compression shorts for summer running as well.
This is the best running gear purchase I have ever made. Great warmth with no extra weight. Seams are very comfortable, not always the case with a compression tight. I wear these not only for running (October thru March), but as a base layer for cross country and downhill skiing, snowshoeing and hiking. I have had these pants now for 2 years now, wear them multiple times per week and am not fussy about laundering them in a particular fashion and they are still like brand new!!! This is the first time I have ever written a review for anything because I am that impressed.
i bought the cw-x insulator stabilyx tights and used it for this past weekend race - ozark endurance run in the state of MO. it really works for me! compare this product with the other normal stabilyx tights, this tights is slightly more heavy/thicker but it is very breathable. it shields me from feeling cold (the normal one would still do the job but you probably could feel a little wind still). totally recommended it. :)
These are great, they have a lot of compression. The wind front works well, though the backs of my legs get chilly in sub 20�F temps. Would be excellent for skate skiing as well as running, I think. The size medium is right for 135lbs/5'6".
I love these tights! Tried them out this weekend, and they kept me toasty warm. Legs felt great after hiking for 6 hours. Worth every penny. Seriously.
