      Comments about Mens CW-X Stabilyx Ventilator Fitted Shorts:

      This my second Stabilyx and third CW-X product. I wear them primarily for running but other cross-training activities as well.

      Are they a placebo? If so, an effective one. Objectively I see a difference in my times -- 3 to 5% -- and, subjectively, believe I have a better recovery. So having gotten used to the tights over the winter, I went looking for a cooler version in the warm months.

      The Stabilyx Ventilator Shorts obviously do not cover as much of the leg as the full tights. So the shorts do not offer the same compression experience. Nevertheless, they seem to benefit the quads, hams, and core.

      The Ventilator shorts are cooler than the tights, not only because there's less of them, but the material is somehow a cooler blend. (Tried 'em both one cool morning.) So breathability-wise, these are not simply the regular tights in a cutdown version.

      Workmanship is excellent. I do have a question on sizing. My two CW-X full tights are Mediums and, while initially I was dubious about their being large enough, after a couple of wearings I concluded, "Yeah, medium is it." My shorts are Medium, too, and we do all right, but I'd sure like to take a Large on a test drive. So my suspicion is that the Ventilator shorts may be sized just a little small ... but I don't know.

      In sum, the news Stabilyx Ventilator Short is a good thing and I'm pleased to have them.

        Comments about Mens CW-X Stabilyx Ventilator Fitted Shorts:

        This is actually my first compression tights...or tights in general. I was VERY skeptical at begining, but I couldn't resist but try it out after seeing my buds. Wow, I was shocked, my time actually improved big time. I thought it was just a luck, tried again, and my record improved. I'm impresed and sold on CW-X. It's really pricy pieace of kit, and can't have multiple, but it's worth investing, especially as a race day wear.

          I'm already a fan of CW-X Products, and I've owned their Pro Shorts for several years now. These are even better. They feel more supportive in the hamstring and glutes, while the mesh panels make them feel cooler for warm weather runs.

                Performance: Ran Chicago Marathon with these (and R-Gear Hybrid short over). Very comfortable and great support! Also great on speed and tempo workouts!

                Support: Compared to the 3/4 Stabilyx (not Ventilator) version which I use for training runs, these provide a bit less support in the hips/lower back.

                Care: I suggest washing it as instructed and inside a mesh bag because it seems that anything caught in the Ventilator's mesh could easily tear it open.

                      I live on the southern tip of Texas and we have temperatures well into the 100's (heat index) circa 6 months out of the year. These shorts are the first & only pair that I don't feel like I just took a swim in them after a run or speed walk. They truly do ventilate and I haven't felt that clamy sticky feeling that I have in some other products. I have several long tights by CW-X and I love their stuff as. And that is no lie, as Hopper used to say !
