    The best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: small

    These are even better than the last Stabylx Insulators I purchased. Pricey, but warm, great compression, I dont get sore or fatigued, I wont ski or board without them--- EVER

    Would not ski without them!

      I’m 42 and my legs are as strong as ever but I️ wouldn’t ski without these. They help me last longer, recover faster, and feel more secure and stronger when skiing, hiking and skinning.

      Great support and base layer!

      Use these exclusively for downhill skiing. The added insulation works well with insulated ski pants to keep your legs warm but not overheat. If you have shell ski pants without an insulating liner, I'd recommend an extra layer over these tights on the cold days. I'm an expert skier, but don't get out as much as I used to, so my legs get burnt quicker and are not as conditioned as I used to be. These tights help me push harder throughout the day and the added stability in the knees means I don't have to wear my neoprene brace any longer. 3/4 length is great as it prevents any bunching or seam pressure from occurring inside the ski boots.

      Excellent downhill skiing tights

      I have been using CWX for years and the new tights are even better. As an older skier, these give me great support in the areas I need it. I am a strong skier but the back support and knee support is exceptional.,They are warm and use them as long underwear. Highly recommend!

      Versatile

        These are high-quality, high-performance tights that will keep your legs warm on shoulder season jaunts and crisp winter runs. They have the optimal amount of insulation so you stay warm without feeling weighed down. The fabric is comfortable yet durable—they don’t tear in encounters with unfriendly vegetation.

        Awesome for skiing and more.

        I have used these two times to hike halfway up Mt Bachelor and then ski down. They were awesome for both the hike up and the skiing down. Lots of extra support and I swear my recovery time was much quicker with these on. I highly recommend these. Awesome product. The large size fits me perfectly.

        I'm a believer

        I bought these because several folks I trust recommended them. They work as advertised. They're not the most warm thing, but they do their job.

        YES

        Love these for skiing, hiking, running, and cold weather cycling over my bibs. They are tight but not too tight. Waist is high and doesnt fall down (like it does on the full length!) and the material is durable and warm, but not too warm.

        The extra stability that I needed

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: medium
        • Height: 6'1"
        • Weight: 175lbs

        So far I like these a lot. I'm recovering from a knee injury from last year and wanted something to give a little extra stability when I'm not wearing a brace. These are very comfortable and offer the support that I was looking for. They also help with fatigue which I really like. I have been using them for skiing and running and they work great for both. When running on really cold days or in snow I wear a calf sleeve so my whole leg is covered. I really like the CEP Progressive calf sleeve. I am 175lbs and 6'1" and went with a medium. The CW-X size chart had me in a large but the large was a little loose and didn't offer as much compression as I wanted.

        Go to base layer

          Used to use long CW-Xs until I tried these once. Under insulated pants, their with a lightweight pair of wool ski socks is perfect. Ski boot fits so much more comfortable and warmed. My wife wearing a pair under her she'll pants and simply throws a pair of long underwear on top on sub 25 degree days.

          Great Knickers

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Great for trail runs, cycling, and skiing. Compressive fit is great for your muscles. The fabric and construction is top of the line.

          Because Science

          • Height: 5'9"
          • Weight: 145lbs

          I finally decided to try out compression tights for skiing and I am far from disappointed. Performance-wise, I can definitely feel a difference in stability while wearing these, and my recovery time after a long, knee-jerking descent is no where near as long. Although these are Insulator tights, I didn't notice any added warmth over a Capilene 2 or lightweight merino bottom, so I still plan on wearing a mid-layer over the CW-X tights on cold resorts days.

          The size Small fits me well, but the waist of the tights does need to ride just below my belly button for the knee areas to line up with my 30" inseam.

          All in all, the Stabilyx 3/4 Ski Tights are my new go-to ski baselayers.

          great for any outdoor sports!

          • Weight: 180lbs

          just got a pair of these and am most impressed. They definitely stabilize the muscles in the legs and give added support to the knees. Highly recommended!

          Bit long i think

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Fit: Runs large
          • Size Bought: large
          • Height: 5'5"
          • Weight: 200lbs

          I just purchased them for skiing and haven't worn them execept to try them on. They seem a bit long for me where the crotch hits the bottom of my jewel sack and the knee sockets aren't
          in place. Yes I am short. Hopefully it will work out in the wash and shrink to fit better. I have slack in the legs and really not sure how comfortable they will be. The Spyder Captain 3/4 fit one hell of a lot better in this size

          My favorites

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: XL
          • Height: 6'0"
          • Weight: 235lbs

          Haven't skied without them since I bought them in 2013. As noted, they are not extremely warm, but under my Goretex Pro Shell pants good to down to about 20 degrees F and then only a bit chilly on the chairlift. Lower than that, I have a pair of "shants" that go down another 10 degrees. If really cold, I have a pair of thin fleece 100 weight 3/4s to put over them that works to as cold as I want to ski -- feet will freeze before legs.

          Never go skiing without these!!

          This is my second pair and after trying these the first time over 5 years ago,I will never go without. They give great support,you feel "locked in".They add staying power to your legs as they reduce fatigue and are very warm.This is all I wear under my ski pants.Sizing is important so buy with care.The 3/4 length is ideal for skiing as there is no hassle with stuffing into boots and causing problems. A must have for any serious skier!

          Only base layer I ride in

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          These things are ridiculous. I have a surgically reconstructed knee, and these pants provide a ton of added stability. Got rid of al my other base layer bottoms--only thing I'll ride in anymore

          Fantastic as Expected

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: True to size

          Had to write a review post 7 days of boarding with these and use the fantastic adjective as there was 2 ft of new powder!

          Obviously, this is independent of the tights so back to my review. I really like the 3/4 length because it doesn't interfere with the fit of my boots. My other pair of CWXs are not insulated and I was able to lose a long underwear bottom because they are very warm. The insulation is fleece like.

          I don't know if the compression actually works or I just believe it does. I can say that on 2 of the days it was a very heavy snow and there was so much snow in the woods it was difficult to get back up when I fell. My legs were somewhat sore but I think it would've been a lot worse without my CWXs.

          I would definitely recommend these!

          Good for knickers, but...

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          I don't get it. If you need tights wear tights, if you need shorts wear shorts. I'm either a little too cold or a little too hot in these. And I tried to like them real hard, under ski clothes, under dry-suits, on the bike. I love my CW-X full length stabilyx, but these sit un-used now. Maybe I'm just not a capris kinda guy.

          I found the opposite situation for skiing. The seams of my full-length tights were irritating my ankle, even though I tried to position them behind the bone area. A bootfitter recommended nothing but socks between my leg and the boot, so now I'm looking for a pair of 3/4 length.

          I agree with trw. I am a boot fitter and recommend 3/4 base layers to everyone. I use these compression pants and they are phenomial. reduced fatigue, good circulation, good moisture management. Ski in them all day long under my ski pants

          I had the full length and went to 3/4 to keep them out of the boots. Socks go up over the bottom of the tights so there is no exposed skin. I suppose in looser snowboard boots it might not matter, but in performance downhill ski boots you don't want an extra layer in the boot.

          Any idea of sizing for a 5'9" 205 lb'er with a 36-38 inch waist. I notice I am off the cw-x chart for large and xl at this height/weight combo.

          Is overall length consistent across sizing?...

          Is overall length consistent across sizing? That is, would a small be slightly shorter than a medium? I'm considering size small - I'm 5' 11" with a slim build. I don't want to loose out on length if a small is shorter, but am afraid of a medium fitting too loose. Any thoughts?
