To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Ordered these tights because they combined both the muscle and joint support. I loved the muscle compression and knee stability, they felt great. However, the gray bands on the black tights made me look like I was wrapped in duct tape, so I sent them back. If the bands were black like they are on the CW-X Endurance Pro-Muscle, I would have keep the tights and given it a 5 star rating. Too bad, they don't offer an all black design.
I’ve used them for tennis and skiing. My biggest complaint is the groan compression. As a man with a package extra room in this area is lacking and therefore uncomfortable. Otherwise the amount of compression elsewhere is just right for me. They don’t provide insulation for skiing so I wore long underwear over top for warmth. They worked well for tennis. I dropped the grade to three stars because at that price I expected more male comfort.
