I'm really happy with these tights, they are just what I was looking for. Living in Seattle, I often run in the rain - I got these for winter running (upper 30's - low 40's) and have not been disappointed. I like having my knees covered in temps below the 40's and these are perfect (not sure how they would do in colder weather ?). The support is great, I actually like these more than my more expensive CWs; they do well in the rain (provide a layer of protection, but don't feel heavy); and have a nice inner liner to keep your junk warm and protected in the wind :-)
The sizing chart in accurate; I'm 5'9' 150 and went with a small...they look tiny, but the fabric stretches (but doesn't feel tight). I generally struggle with sizing because I'm usually at the upper end of a small and lower end of a medium...these are tights and designed to fit snug, if you want a loser fit I'd suggest going up in size - but you probably will sacrifice some support?
A great length
I run about five times a week, twice are outside so I like to be warm and comfortable! I'm 5'10 and 154, but went for a size small. That was the right choice as these P.I. capri length running tights provided an extrodinary fit, close to what you might expect in a high end compression tight (such as Skinz). Despite the snug fit what I really noticed was the absence of them cutting into my belly, small as it is. The weather when I wore them so far has been slightly above freezing, so having my knees covered is important:-) After an hour of mid-paced running plus some harder sections the tights did not slide down or "scrunch up" like a lot of other, less expensive ones do.
