THE BEES KNEES!I have been searching for the prefect tight for post run recovery as well as for support during a good long run. I have found that very item in this tight. Plenty of overall support coupled with good warmth for cold day adventured. Wiggle your way into this pair of tights and you will have happy legs from here on out.

An excellent pair of compression running tightsThis is an outstanding pair of compression running tights--comfortable yet secure, providing a massage-like feeling during the run to stave off fatigue, cramps or injuries, and apparently designed with gradient compression (higher compression lower in the leg, less compression higher in the leg, to facilitate circulation). For example, the other morning I wore the tights while doing some interval training and achieved a pr in my maximum speed and maintained a fast speed overall, with ease and with little soreness the next day. And all this after not running for several months and only running sporadically over the past few weeks. I am especially pleased because I have a medical condition in my left leg (lymphedema) that requires me to wear gradient compression over the left leg to prevent the swelling and accumulation of fluid during intense exercise. When I run now, I wear my medical compression stocking on the left leg under this terrific pair of compression tights, and so far there has been no adverse effect on my left leg (and in fact the tights combined with the medical garment may actually be reducing the size of my leg). I have worn other CW-X compression tights before, but this pair offers the most compression and security by far--without feeling pinched or uncomfortable. I also don't find it difficult to put on the tights. The art is to pull each leg on carefully by bunching up the material and pulling it slowly up the leg, always making sure to maintain some slack material just below where you're pulling, like stretching out a slinky. And it's simply the reverse process when removing them, gradually accumulating slack material as you pull slowly down the leg (the only slight difficultly is removing the leg over the ankle at the end, making sure to grip all of the bunched-up material at once as you pull the leg over the ankle and foot). Time will tell whether this pair is warm enough for winter weather, but so far the legs feel warm and supple underneath.
