These allow me to keep running...

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Quite simply, these tights rock! I've been suffering from some hip alignment issues, which in turn causes IT band problems. Not a good combo for a runner. I've started wearing these for speed workouts at the track and for my longer runs and literally feel no pain while running. I've used them for runs up to the half marathon distance, no chaffing or discomfort and they have provided sufficient warmth down to 25 degrees and weren't overly hot all the way up to around 65. They really do a remarkable job keeping things in line and I also find they help with my stride. I'm 6'0" 170 lbs and the Medium fits perfectly. Also, backcountry.com customer service was outstanding during the ordering process, matching a competitors price with no questions asked. They arrived at my house in Alabama in 2 days. Can't beat it.
