I have used these tights for alpine skiing and really can say they have made my legs fatigue a lot less. After a long run, top to bottom, my legs sometimes feel a little tired but never sore like they were before wearing the tights. I just don't get that burn from working the quads, calves, and hamstring after a long hard run.

I have heard of people wearing them after events to help recover and prevent lactic acid build up but I've never tried them after, only during...

They are also great if you get sore from standing on cold concrete for a lengthy time. I have worn them to watch many a winter little league game when it's cold on the bench but standing makes you sore, these tights really help.

They are not thermals so if you're in extreme cold, wear an extra layer. if you're warm like me, they do just fine! Be sure to use the tie at the top to keep them from sliding down as nobody likes that "plumber action" :-)

I have had 2 different sizes of tights and like the smaller size more. If you're in between sizes go smaller as they seem to provide even more support and relief when they're a little tighter.

Yes, I would go with the S since I've bought both the larger and the smaller of 2 sizes I was between and really like the smaller size more. I will say the larger size was easier to get on but the smaller size kept the fatigue down more.

I bought one pair of these for my wife before buying these from backcountry.com as she would get sore and tired after longer ski runs. After the first day, she skied stronger, faster, and didn't complain of the soreness she had felt the day before. I haven't used them for running, only for skiing and it does seem to decrease the lactic acid build up in the leg muscles. You can still get tired but not fatigued like you may without them.
I won't say it makes me 10 years younger but I will say, I don't ever feel like I need to rest because of tired or sore legs.
I also recommend if you're between sizes, go with the smaller as the tighter compression worked better for me.
