Worth the dough
I've used these tights a lot this winter, and they have held up really well to the repeated washing.
They fit me true to size (120 lbs, 5'5" =small).
I have used them mainly for running. I do notice my legs getting really hot and sweaty during long runs, even if my fingers and toes are numb.
These have excellent compression, although I can't really tell a difference in muscle fatigue or that persnickety ITBS during running.
I wore these one day while skiing and really appreciated the knee support. But my quads still got as tired as normal.
