Hello There. The CW-X Insulator tights do well at temperatures below about 40 degrees. Everyone deals with cold differently, but the tights can be used in below freezing temps, as long as the wind is not super bad. There is a wind blocking panel on the quads which does a great job blocking the wind. The rest of the fabric on these tights is designed to adjust how much heat is real eased based on use. So for example if you are just starting out and your body temp is cold, the tights will trap your body heat until your body warms up to around 80 degrees. This is optimum operating body temp for athletics. Once the threshold is reached, the tight releases heat, keeping you at a steady temp. This minimizes the hot and sweaty vs wet/cold situations. Good luck!

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.

Jared-

Did you make the purchase yet? If not, you can definitely go with either size. I am 5'11 and 165 and I wear a medium. I have slightly skinnier legs and if I went to a large the tights just feel slightly looser. However if you had big quads, hamstrings, calves, etc you would be best served with a large. Good luck

Jeff- These will definitely work for you for Winter time riding. If you plan to be out in anything between 35 degrees and below, you may want to check out the Insulated version of the Versatx tight. The coolmax non insulated is best for anything above 38-40 degrees, etc.

Hi Jennifer-

Did you already settle on a pair? You can actually go either way on the size. If you have strong legs and quads, I would recommend the medium. If your legs are skinny, then I would recommend the small. But honestly, either size would work for you. In the small, you would just have a slightly larger gap between your ankle and the bottom of the tights. Good luck!

Hey Layne-
Getting a small pro tight is a great option for you. Being 5'10 you may have a small gap between the bottom of the tight and your ankle. But that is perfectly OK. The support web in the Pro tight gives the best support out of all the CW-X tights for smaller legs. YOu will love them.
Good luck.

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!

Hi Everyone-
Please note, this new 2011 reflective version of the CW-X Stabilyx Tight is almost exactly the same as the existing version. You can read reviews here. http://www.backcountry.com/cw-x-stabilyx-tight-womens-cwx0033
The main new feature is what CW-X calls 360 degree reflective. There are 4 strategically placed reflective flash strips on the tights that show up at night and in the early AM during those early morning or night runs. Check these new Reflective Stabilyx Tights out and if you already own a pair of the old ones, maybe think about getting an additional pair for running at dusk and dawn. Cheers.

Hi There. A Men's Small is definitely the correct size for you. As mentioned elsewhere the tights will stretch to accommodate your body type. The key is to have the knee cap center positioned in the right place and the waistband of the tights should sit comfortably on your waist. YOu may need to use the drawstring but it's not required. Good luck!

I know your question was a long time ago. MY suggestion is you look at the Performx or Pro tight from CW-X and you get a size Large. Because of your height, if you get a smaller size, they would pull down from your waist. By getting either the Pro or Performx Tight, you are not as limited to where your knee hits the tight, so these models will work better for you in terms of fit and support. Good luck.
