4.0 out of 5 stars Best full length compression tights hands down for short to medium length runs, November 20, 2012

This review is from: CW-X Men's Stabilyx Running Tights (Apparel)
I had the pleasure of picking up a pair of the CW-X Stabilyx compression tights at the start of the fall season (2012). So far they have functioned brilliantly. I love, love, love the feeling of extra support around the knees with their unique design. The longer waist is really nice. The only thing that would make this product better is if they had better support for 'the boys' similar to Skins cup design in the front of their compression.

A little background, I am an ultrarunner who does 50-80 miles of running per week. I have used 2XU, Skins, Under Armor, and Sugoi compression products and these tights are superior by a long shot. I will be back to update how many miles I get out of this gear, but based on performance of other compression tights, I would expect 400-500 miles.

UPDATE: I have now put just over 100 miles on these tights - my review still stands with the exception of long runs. I am going to dock a star because the seams on these tights are not flat and have a pretty ragged edge which will nearly cut your nuts in half on any run beyond 9-10 miles (and this is even with body glide applied liberally). So for short or medium length runs, these are great. If going further, look elsewhere for maximum comfort.

You are stating, that you believe these tights will last up to 500 miles. I am not sure that this can be correct. I run about 70 per week, so they would last 7 weeks. My last tights (not this brand) has so far lasted over 5,000 miles. A bit worn, but still ok after some repair. Any update on your side? Thx
