Bought these because I can't stand running in full tights. I still look goofy in them but hey, I'm a runner, we all look goofy running in sub-freezing temps. Work great for supporting my bad knee. I don't know if they are really doing anything but the placebo effect is amazing! They keep me warm and fit very well. I weigh 140 and am 6' tall and a small fits snug. Might want to go a size up if you like a looser fit. Buy these if you want to have a set of man capris running tights!
"Great Support for Multi-day Ski/Snowboard Ventures"
As compression is becoming more mainstream, and as my body is getting older, I'm coming to accept the fact that muscle support is a good thing. I like to do activities, like running too far or skiing too long, that my body isn't always ready for, and wearing CW-X products keep my post-exercise soreness to a minimum. To minimize muscle vibration, I like the 3/4 Stabilyx for snowsports like skiing or snowboarding so that I don't have to stretch them over my boots like I would the tights, but I still get the support where I want it.
