Abdominal support panel provides extra support to the lower abdominal muscles
Key pocket and double reinforced waistband with flat drawcord
Had these not been on clearance I would not have bought them and I would have lost out. This is a quality, performance enhancing tight and the most therapeutic garment I have ever worn. I feel like a gazelle in these things. They feel good, perform good, and look good: Quite shapely! The other gals in my tempo group envy my lucky find at RRS and vow to buy a pair of their own.
I'm a very leggy 5'9" wearing size L. The fit is centered on knee placement and it works out nearly perfect for me. I do wish the rise was greater as I am pretty high-waisted. These come with a 0.9" waistband. A 2" waistband would have been very appropriate, desirable, and supportive especially given the price. Due to fabric strength, getting into these things takes a few seconds in order to get the placement correct which you really want to do in order to maximize the support features all the way up your legs and hips.
These tights are great for cold weather, but I have worn them on a cloudy 62 degree day and did not overheat. However, this is not a rain garment so if it is excessively rainny consider wearing a rain resistant garment over them. Twice I wore them alone in snowy conditions and they were perfect. Yes, I would totally buy this product again, especially if CW-X incorporates my suggested improvements.
Fit Is not for everyone
I intended to use these tights for distance running, but the support webs do not fit my knees properly. My measurements placed me on the border of a sm or med. I tried both sizes. The support web feature in the medium caused awkward stress/pressure behind one of my knees, good fit in the other knee, looseness in other areas (all of which hindered my stride) causing a painful 14 miles-no added benefit. The small fit a little better in the knee, but was too short and uncomfortably tight through the quads also making for an awkward run. Be cautious when purchasing if new to this brand and if your ht and wt measurements place you on the border of two sizes.
Unfortunate these didn't work for me, I think these tights have great potential and would be a great purchase for those who are better proportioned for the tights.
Wouldn't buy any other brand for compression
I am a huge fan of running in compression tights and compression shorts, and I will only wear CW-X. They are worth the money! I like this newest version of their compression tights, Endurance Generator, better than any of the other three types of CW-X compression tights I've bought over the years. This version really focuses on gluts, hamstrings, quads and knees (although I'm most interested in the first three areas of muscle support.) The material is completely different from all the other versions and they added extra support for your gluts. These tights are extremely breathable and feel great. I love them!
This new CW-X Tight is amazing!
I have used CW-X Stabilyx Tights and Capris in the past mainly for running and working out. But this year I am training for the NY Marathon and decided to pay the extra money and get their new Generator tight that has knee support and also quad and hamstring support. Wow! What a difference. You can really feel it in the support bands through the legs and hips. The fit is very comfortable and I especially feel the difference when running longer distances. My legs don't get as sore as when I wear shorts. I would highly recommend these to someone that is training to run longer miles- half marathon, marathon, etc. Well worth the money

I only run in CW-X tights and rave to my new runner friends about the benefits of the compression. Was so excited to use this new endurance style to start training for a marathon. I'm 5'2" 115 lbs- the Small was a little loose around the knees/calves which completely defeats the purpose of support. Strange puckering in the left inner thigh seam so would have eventually rubbed my skin. Leary about exchanging for X-Small so sent back for refund.
These tights are awesome. They are absolutely true compression tights. I'd buy more if the price was more affordable to do so. I would have given it 5 stars if not for the price.
My hamstrings and knees loving these.
They provide great support for my hamstring, thighs and knees. Snug fit, keep my muscles warm, prevent soreness. 100% satisfied.

I'll be trying a different brand.
I will be returning this. Everything but the waist fit. The sizing is not accurate and I don't think the waist/waistband should be compression. Other than that, I loved the way they felt from the thighs down, but I couldn't breathe due to the waist.
Great pants for running and look good in it żBut I guess I order to big for me M size so I exchange for sm because they fit ok but not tight and my husband have them (men style) and he said that they have to be more tightly fit to help my legs will see
Fit tighter than the 3/4 crops. Sit a little lower on the waist.
But warm and worth the money!
Amazing to run in
Better than I thought, wish I had more
Great for running in cold weather
For good support
Things that are great about it.
Yes, I don run with out CWX...I suffer of knee pain
Always run wearing them. Great for fast recovery and while running.
They run way smaller than advertised.
