Here's what others have to say...

Posted on

Just wondering is someone can help me. I fall in the "White" area of the CW-X sizing chart, not the grey. I am 5'6" and weigh 180lbs and a 32inch waist. Very muscular, fairly big legs. I was going to go with the medium, but don't know if that will have enough compression. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Responded on

Hopefully a dude will help out w/this question...
Till then, I can tell you I'm kinda in the same deparment. XS by height and in the XS grey area by weight. My thighs (21")/calves(15") are more muscular than the average lady, so I decided to order both and try them on. I kid you not that there is no way I could've fit my calves, let alone my thighs in the XS. The small felt v.snug the first few runs, and have stretched out a touch after ~50 miles run. Even if I could've fit into the xs, the truth is that I'm not sure I would've wanted them that snug for my long distance running. Hopefully a guy will respond as well - I'm sure their measurements will help a touch more.

Richard- The tights themselves do a great job accommodating a wide range of body types and they will stretch outwards to fit larger legs and calves well. However, the height is the important factor. I would recommend a size medium for you. I bet the tights will fit correctly between your knee and your waist. However you may have some extra length at your ankle which is not a big deal at all. Good luck.

CW-X Stabilyx Tights

I am 63 and my muscles can use all the help they can get so I purchased these after reading the reviews and absolutely think they are fantastic. Both my wife and I use them for Bicycle riding and find that our muscles are less fatigued after our ride. We have also purchased the 3/4 length insulated ones that we plan on using for our winter ski season. They are true to size, so just follow their chart. Snug, but comfortable.

I would go with a large on sizing, but wearing tights in 90 degree weather seems a little crazy to me. Perhaps you should look into the short version of these...

Moises- Based on your weight and Waist size, I would recommend a large. Anything smaller may fit too tight in the hips and waist. For hot temperatures, I would also recommend looking at the CW-X ventilator Tight and Ventilator Short. Those styles have strategically placed mesh venting panels that help cool hot areas of the leg, quad, and calf. Good luck!

I have a pair of CW-X tights. They have been great and I wanted a second pair. I got them as a gift. I am not sure which model I have. I think it is the Stabilyx tight, but all it says on the tag is Style 225809....

Responded on

Greg- 225809 is indeed the Stabilyx Tight. If you want to get a second pair, check out the newest version on Backcountry that has 360 degree reflective feature. It's the new Stabilyx Reflective Tight. Good luck.

So I am 6'1" 190lbs (I'm in the process of cutting weight and aiming for 34 inch waist , currently 36, and about 180lbs) and I got the large. This is the first time I have ever bought a product like this. I got them due to help with fatigue and recovery as well as for football battered knees. My question is how tight should these things be? They fit "tightly" (more or less like any sort of skin-tight baselayer) and I can feel the support areas but should I be feeling a little more squeeze/compression on my muscles and joints? Basically I'm wondering if I should try out some mediums with my next purchase.

Responded on

Yes, they should be fairly tight. At least in the key areas.

Responded on

Hey There. Your CW-X tights should feel like a second skin. They should not feel overly tight but definitely not too loose where you see wrinkles in the fabric. The CW-X targeted Support Web provides the targeted support to your muscles and joints without it having to be extra tight. The size large should be your correct size. I hope you are enjoying the CW-X Stabilyx.

Super Man Ain't Got Nothing on Me!

Great fit, nice and tight, but not too much so. I can’t wait t really get after it this winter touring long distances in these techie tights!

I’m 5’11” 165lbs, and I usually wear a 34, the M worked great for me!

Posted on

what is the difference between stabilyx and pro tights? which would be best for a 50k? if you had to choose between one of these for during runs, or the recovery for after runs, what would choose?

Responded on

Check out the CW-X website where you can compare the differences between the tights. Each type focus support on slightly different areas/combinations of areas:
http://cw-x.com/Shop.aspx?sub=compareProducts

I honestly have both a running pair and a recovery pair of tights. When I'm doing really intense interval training for ironman training, I wear the recovery tights at night in hopes that they'll help me be ready for the next back to back workout. I suppose I could get the same effect I see w/the tights via ice baths and such. If you've never had to worry about lactic acid build up after workouts, maybe you don't need the recovery tights.

This is the first year I've used their running specific tights. For me the biggest thing I notice is the support for my knees/IT bands. If you have no joint/ligament issues, maybe you don't need the running pair.

Really just depends on if you want to feel better while running...or would like the added benefit of feeling a little more ready (muscles will feel more fresh) for each workout.

For reference, I chose the Stabilyx tight for my last marathon. The pro tight shows less knee support on the CW-X comparison website feature - I needed knee support more than anything.

Hope this is what you were looking for in an answer.

So, I'm 5'9" and 165lbs. I'm a climber and a soccer player, and so very little of that is fat, and most of it is in my legs. I have a 30" inseam, and am wondering if the size medium will be too long. I'd assume size small is too tight. I wear a medium in Under Armour tights, and they're the right length. How would these compare? Can I get away with a medium or will they be too long?

Responded on

James, a medium should be fine for length at your height. I think a small would be too snug.

Responded on

Thanks, Mike. I'm looking forward to them.

I'm tall unit 5.9ft, weight 200lb.

Tights are a great source to protect my knee from damage.

Guess On Size

After talking with a helpful Regional Representative I decided to go with a small as I fit in that very gray area shown for sizing. However, the small was very tight in the calf and upper thigh. So I went to a Medium. This now makes it looser and I'm not overly content with the tights. To solve the problem I will need to reorder the small and actually wear them to see if the tightness will be acceptable. If the small after wearing is too tight then I'll make to make a decision based upon which is acceptable but not necessarily good. That said I do like them but do have a fit issue.

Great product and service!

Being a skier and not sure if the 3/4 would be a better fit I bought both as well as the Pro tights. Being 6'4" 180lbs, the large full length are a better fit for the knee support. Also, I have had zero problems with the full length cutting into the shins b/c of the ski boots. I spent a week in Mammoth so I also bought the Pro tights for comparison b/c I had read that they are more for skiers/boarders but I liked the overall support of these much better. Backcountry is the only place I buy my gear from as they have an awesome return policy and all of the reps are extremely helpful.

I have another sizing question. I've read all of the recommendations and still can't make a decision. I'm 6'4" and 165 - 170lbs with the majority of my height in my legs. Every other long underwear item I have fits great in a medium for my size but short for my height. Can you help?

Best Answer Responded on

Josh, according to the sizing chart on the CWX website you are a large.

Tight tights!

Just tore my ACL about four month ago and I have been using this pair of tights for yoga, walking, running, skiing, and sleeping! Maybe not sleeping but they are comfortable enough to to that too! They give just a bit of extra support where it is needed! Over Ll very pleased!

I'm training to run my first 5 K. I'm a large man, 6'4" and I weigh 270 lbs. My plan is to lose down to 225. My question is could I go ahead and order the XL now or will I need to lose down to 225 before purchasing because that is as high as the size chart goes?

Get them now, stock could be when you want them later. I am 6'0 and 250.. I ran a half marathon and do a lot of 5k's. You will be just fine. I recommend the cw-x stabilyx-tights.

Posted on

I'm 6'0'', weigh 195lbs, and have a 32-33 waist. I have a muscular upper body, but my legs are on the thinner side. I'm primarily using the tights for cold weather running(Chicago), and I'm drawn to the knee support written in reviews. Yet, at the same time I'd like to get the most use out of my purchase. In this case more than one season. Based upon my brief description would you recommend the Stabilyx, Pro, or Expert...and should I get the insulated versions? Finally what size should I get? Medium or Large?
Thanks

Responded on

First I'll start with sizing. It sounds like you and I are built exactly alike, 6'0 195lbs as well, and I wear a large. I have the Stabilyx insulated version, and I wear it all winter, on runs down to 0 degrees. However, they are probably to warm at least for me to wear above 40 degrees if its not windy. But above 40 without wind, I usually run in shorts anyway. I really like the compression that the Stabilyx offers, and I don't think that I would go with anything else. I really do love these tights, and I've had them for three years and they still look new. I hope that helps!

Never ran in tights before

I bought these for the support promised in the knees as I recently suffered my first knee injury at age 49. That was 5 weeks ago. This past weekend I completed 39.3 miles in the Disney Goofy Race and a Half and have nothing to complain about with my knees and the compression factor has me feeling where I would normally be 4 to 5 days into recovery after a race. Bottom line is that I am totally sold and will buy again!!!
