Familiarity: I've used it several times
Having started with CW-X, I had high expectations for 2XU, which seemed to be a more expensive brand (but clearly you don't always get what you pay for). Because I don't want to spend postage to mail the pants back, I will deal with it... But, I would not buy these pants again for the following reasons: 1) Although ultra silky smooth, the pants are a little thin and therefore are best for warmer weather. 2) The pants do not have any core support or core reinforcements--one of my favorite features of my CW-X. 3) The crotch is not reinforced, and I've had many pants that split in the middle and are not easily sewn given the material. 4) These pants seem to be made for those with ultra flat if not concave bellies, quickly flopping down at the top even if I pull up to the point of wedgieland, and they continue to shift down my legs, calling for constant pull ups to remain supportive and comfortable. Even if I tie the waist band tight, it doesn't help--and in fact hurts as it digs into my hips as the pants try desperately to flip and fall! Buyer beware.
