I was a bit worried about the compression being too snug, but it was perfect. My legs feel incredibly supported and, as weird as it sounds, my running seems a bit more effortless. Post run recovery is actually amazing (I would have been skeptical here). I did my 1st 10k of the season with these tights (after having only ran a few training miles here and there) and, honestly, I had no soreness afterwards! Running in cold sleet was niiiice - legs were comfortably compressed and I had no cold issues. Was true to size - I always wear a small (5'5 & 120lbs) and the small fits great.

Love the CW-X PerformX Tights!
After reading all the reviews for the CW-X PerformX Tight for Women, I decided to order a pair. I ordered a size Small (I'm 5'4 and 115lbs) and they fit perfectly. I've been having IT Band issues so I purchased the tights after much research. I wear the tights during and post-runs. I have slept in them as well, as they feel really good on my legs. My recovery has been a lot better also after wearing the tights. I am in the process of ordering the 3/4 tights as I'm running a half marathon this weekend in Florida and the long tights would be too hot. I'm looking foward to wearing the 3/4 tights and having the compression I need for the race.

My legs feel great!
I was a little skeptical about the reported benefits of these CW-X PerformX tights for running. And the price tag had me hesitating further until I talked with a close friend who recently bought a pair and couldn't say enough good things. I broke down and treated myself to a pair as a Christmas gift :-) I am 5'1" and 135 lbs.....I fall between a S and M size. I ordered the S with the recommendation that they should be snug in order to get the ultimate benefit. The fit is perfect for me in both length and girth while providing enough stretch for a taller frame. You have to take your time putting them on to get them lined up with the webbing hitting the right spots on your leg. I wore them on a 39 degree day on an afternoon/early evening run. This is the first run in a week since being struck down with a stomach virus and completely out of commission. WOW.....I'm a believer!! Usually after a week long break I experience some leg soreness the day after my run.......NOT TODAY!! The CW-X PerformX tights were a perfect companion. During my run I felt great, my legs felt strong, and I was totally comfortable in the 40 deg. temperature with only a mid-weight wool sweater on top. The tie waist and internal key pocket are a plus. Today, the day after, no leg fatigue or soreness at all. So far so good......I'm participating in a New Year's Eve running race and plan to wear the PerformX tights again while making my resolution to invest in another pair!! Thanks CW-X...great item!!

Love these tights. They fit very true to size and are warm enough to wear on chilly morning/evening runs.
