Women's CW-X® Performx Tights :: The PerformX Tights keep everything in correct alignment for optimum balance, efficiency and power by providing support for the IT band, hip flexors and quads as well as good stabilization of the knees, calfs and achilles. The patented CW-X® Support Web™ acts as a suspension system for the quadriceps, increasing power at the push phase of the running motion. The gentle targeted compression of the CW-X® Support Web™ increases circulation, minimizing lactic acid buildup and reducing muscle soreness, making PerformX Tights ideal recovery wear.

I'm 125lbs and 5'7 so I basically am borderline Small or Medium. I wanted to get the full effect of the compression so I thought I would go with the Small. Now I'm not so sure I made the right choice. The fit is fine as far as "tightness." I know it's supposed to be tight but it ends above my ankles and my socks won't cover it so there is just this weird gap in between. I also should have sized up because it keeps on wanting to sink down so I have to keep on pulling the pants up. Still I really like the compression and it really does help with recovery. I'll have to size up next time for a Medium. Just not sure if it will be tight enough.

Make my legs feel GREAT!
I've had IT band issues over the years, especially on long runs. With these pants on, no more IT band pain while running! They also provide overall support and keep my legs from getting tired on long runs. Ran a half marathon yesterday with these pants on and my legs feel great today... not even tired. I've worn these when the temps are in the 20's, 30's, and 40's and they are the perfect weight.
I would buy another CW-X product in the future.
I only have ran in these tights in cold (sub 30s) weather. I was hoping to be able to try them out in 40-50s before writing this, but such is life. So far so good. My main criteria is that they don't fall down. I have a pair of compression tights and a pair of capris (no compression) and both start creep down minutes into a run, which is beyond annoying. Main main criteria for the tight is that it stays put and these do. They have a draw string, a small pocket, and look nice, which are all added benefits. The compression is okay to good. I'm 5'1" and the tights fit great in terms of length, but feel weird around the knees. It's not a show stopper and I don't think it's CW-X's issue. I think it would feel better if I was taller. Overall great purchase for the price.
Great compression tights for petite runners!
This tight is a great mid weight compression tight. Perfect for temps around 30 to 40 degrees. Petite runners will love that the compression fits in the perfect spot for knees and IT bands on short legs. Order two pair they are that good!

I would buy these again
I have started participating in 1/2 marathons in the last year. I like the compression/support tights when keeping in shape for these events. They make my legs feel so much better when going any long distance. I bought them for cooler weather use.
Excellent fit, great compression support!
A friend who is an avid runner recommended this brand. Glad I tried them! They fit great, and the support is awesome!! I bought two pair, going to buy the Capris for warmer weather.
Good support but too short
I use the tights for running. They provide good support and help with the recovery. I ordered the size based on the fitting chart (weight & height). The fit is good except for the length. The tights are about 2 inches too short.

I like them...keeps everything in place making it my runs worry free.
True to size. I am short, so the length is perfect. May be too short if you are tall. Only wish the pocket was larger
