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.
As an old 74 year old trail runner whose bowlegged knees finally made me an old hiker, CW-X Tights are one of my favorite pieces of equipment. The tights support my knees and legs with sufficient compressiion to let me keep doing 40 miles of trails per week. The bottom line - I would not use anything else. They ain't cheap, but they work and they last for several years. One pair has worked for ten years with repairs to keep me going. I highly recommend this product for young and older hikers and runners. One other note - I have a 32" waist and the medium size works for me.
INITIAL REVIEW BEFORE WORKOUT: Great fit. Got them in two days after ordering. I ordered according to the size chart and ordered a size large. I’m 5’11” with a 33” waist and about 190 pounds. I was hesitant cause most gym gear I order a medium. Large fit great. Nice compression, good length, nice “feel” to them just walking around the house for a few minutes. Will update after first run. So far, 5 stars!
Took these pants out for a 7 mile run with temps in the low 40s. Legs stayed warm. Great compression especially on knees and calves. The did ride down a little between my waste and lower thighs, but so low that I felt like I needed to stop and adjust. Over all I’d say they’re a good buy!
