    I picked these up so that I'd be able to trailrun more comfortably in the winter. Was interested in these when a friend told me how much he liked his. They fit true to size. Initially, they felt like they were too tight, but I quickly found that while running they actually feel very comfortable. The tech that's built into these makes sense to me. Though I haven't had a chance to go on a longer trail run yet to see if it truly makes a difference. I will follow up later after I've had a chance to do so.

    I bought these as a gift for my brother and he loves them. He has knee problems and these pants keep his whole leg supported and also keep them warm and ready to move.

    Ligament Support

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I run occasionally, and I am not built for it. I have zero endurance, which is why I run. I believe that if you have a weakness and you work on improving yourself, those weaknesses will become strengths. In the beginning of my running training 100 Meters was a long run for me, now I can run 7 Miles with a week or two of practice, to those long distance people that may not be much but it is definitely a huge improvement from where I started. While running I discovered I have extremely tight IT Bands causing my knee to become out of line and it would be pretty uncomfortable. Since I have found these pants, the pain is reduced to the point that I can run more often and longer than I can without them. Because of the tightness, I feel it also stimulates my muscles allowing for better blood flow and less numb feet.
    These pants have been a staple for me when my knees start to act up, whenever my knees hurt I put them on and slip my jeans over them and I am good to go.
    One bad thing is that the thighs on these are too long for my short legs and the knee area often is about an inch below where it should be.

    Great pants.


    It was cold and definitely hurt a little, but what better way to spend the day after thanksgiving?!

    I'm thankful for being an athlete and every year our window of opportunity grows smaller for adventuring; might as well take every opportunity to get it done!



    Supportive and WARM!

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

    Not only are these amazingly supportive for the knees, calves, thighs, and buttocks, but they keep you toasty warm as well. I haven't found a better running tight that is as versatile as these. Simply look at the reviews and it's clear these tights are a cut above the rest...

    While others were on their couches eating thanksgiving leftovers and getting fat, we did our first annual half marathon in 20 degree temps with snow on all sides. We're not crazy, merely dedicated!

    Nothing says happy thanksgiving like a 20k in the freezing cold eh?!

    Highly recommend these to serious runners. They keep the pain down to a minimum with maximum support!

    5 of 5!

    Supportive and WARM!

    Knee Surgery meet your dream!

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

    Okay for those who are getting older (not like fine wine) things break. My knee decided it was time to fail a year ago and since getting a repair I have had knee soreness only fixed with those annoying knee braces... that was until I bought these! I run 15-30 miles a week and I'm 5'8" 165lbs, small fit like a glove.

    Warning, ballsticle chaffing happens in these. I am sure some lub would do the trick but on a ten mile run I felt the rub... not too bad but on a marathon day it would not be good. I plan to wear slides on long run days.

    Other than that I can say I do have less fatigue and day after soreness. My knee does not have much if any pain at all in these compression pants. I won't call them magic, but I will say they truly are different than my other performance tights.

    Marathon Training

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

    I bought these to train for a marathon in cold weather. I'm 5'10" 175 and the Medium fits great. Pros: very supportive I have less muscle fatigue and soreness, material breathes very well, hold up to multiple washing per week. Cons: Thick seams in crotch can cause chafing, recommend body glide for 2 hour or longer runs. I will buy another pair when I wear these out.


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

    My first pair of compression pants. They have been great so far, seem to be pretty durable, still look and feel new after 6+ months of use. I wear them solo when running around town and under nylon pants when hiking. I feel great the day after.

    Another great product from CW-X

    These aren't your typical compression garments! I haven't used this specific product myself, but gave them to a friend. He used them on his trek to the summit of Gannett Peak, WY, and will follow up with with more information on appraisal of them in a comment of his own.

    A word on sizing; he falls into the grey area between small and medium, but because it is a compression garment, I went with small. When shopping for items like these, please keep in mind your specific body build and use common sense when measurements fall in the gray area. Additionally, it is important to ensure the knee area fits over the knee caps, so leg length should be considered carefully. When in doubt, try a pair on first!

    I really can not praise these tights enough. I went into my trip very skeptical about this product but after my first day of hiking 11 hours straight, over steep terrain and intense scree fields, I can say that my skepticism went away real quick. I tried doing the same trip the year before without compression tights and was unsuccessful. I am not implying it was solely due to the pants but because of a serious injury obtained years ago, I am not able to handle sustained impact to one of my legs. This year was far less painful and easier on my joints. That I can assure was due to the pants.

    During my four day, 50+ mile excursion, I never once took the tights off (except of course to go to the bathroom). I was worried That I would get hot in the 80 degree temperatures but because of their ability to breath and wic, I never once was too hot or too cold during the cool nights.

    Another factor that really stood out was my ability to recover extremely quick. Due to our tight schedule, I was not awarded the luxury of proper sleep. That being said, I was extremely impressed with the way my legs felt in the morning. Even

    after our 18 hour summit day, only having three hours of sleep my legs were not overly sore and I was able to hike the 11 miles out to our pickup point.

    Needless to say, I will never do another long trek without these tights on. I absolutely swear by them.

    I really can not thank Jeni Nash, from Backcountry enough for leading me onto this amazing product. It's an aspect of gear that so easily gets overlooked until you actually use it.

    Pants off dance off!

    The Comfort/Support I so richly deserve!

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

    I started using these for Ice Hockey & before I remembered to keep them in my hockey bag I would really miss them during games; honestly I felt weaker & more fatigued without them (especially in the 3rd period).

    I've used them for backpacking now (females will be disapointed but I wear pants over them) or anytime I'm going for long hikes (esp with weight on me in a backpack or daypack)...they are an essential for these activities.

    I'm not quite bold enough to be out on the town with these on (the few times I've gone running I wear b-ball shorts over them...sorry ladies!) but they do:

    Give me the COMFORT & SUPPORT I so richly deserve & they are worth every penny (if you don't put them in the dryer & follow washing instructions) they last a really long time); definitely feel like I have an EXTRA LAYER OF MUSCLE every time I strap these bad boys on...HUGE FAN!!!

    Also, if you can't decide on a size & are tied on CW-X's chart GO FOR THE SMALLER SIZE, you won't regret it, this is compression after all...YOU BUY NOW, trust me Broseph.

    Item # CWX0153 Pic shows black/gray/red, but left-most selection icon just says "black": do I go by the pic or is the left choice the standard stabilyx basic black? tia, lp

    Sizing question! I'm 16, so still...

    Sizing question!

    I'm 16, so still growing... and would like to not grow out of these in an instant so I'm wondering what you'd recommend for someone 135lb 5'11". Thanks!


    Based on the sizing chart you're pretty much between a Small and a Medium. If you're still growing / filling out, a Medium would be a better bet if you don't want to grow out of them too quickly, but at the same time, they might be a tad loose. Not wicked loose but a little.
