Update Jan 12, 2016:
I'm still pleased with these leggings, but I hardly use them these days. For temperatures in the 40s Fahrenheit and below, they aren't as effective in shielding against cold. This isn't too surprising considering they're compression leggings and aren't thermals. My legs are fairly resistant to cold as it is, so I recently bought a pair of inexpensive cotton sweats for when things get too brisk (yes, sometimes the old ways are the best). If you're looking for compression leggings, I still think these are great. Over the past few months, however, I personally haven't noticed any significant uptick in comfort or performance (I've been using these for outdoor sand volleyball) from having compression for my legs.
Update Oct. 3, 2015: I took a walk outside just now with these on and a pair of shorts over them. It's around 53 degrees Fahrenheit here in Fairview, NJ and my legs felt fine. When the wind hit my legs, they felt a bit cool, but not cold. By the way, I got the color black, which is easier as far as maintenance and being low-profile. Plus, black absorbs sunlight more and I plan to use these to deal with cold weather mostly. Obviously, there's no racial component to my decision (I'm Filipino-American). Black people don't own the color black any more than White people own the color white. It's just a color like any other. Years ago, I wouldn't have felt the need to write that, but I've been exposed to some fairly bizarre ideas over the past several years. It's probably because I'm now 44 years old and have seen a bit more of the world (both good and bad). Whatever color you decide upon, hopefully, this review helps; and hopefully, you get whatever color you want.
While I can't say these babies will make you a Boston Marathon qualifier, these tights are durable and powered me through winter training season. When the temperature rises above 60 F, wouldn't advise wearing them (they become more of a liability in the heat). Overall, I'm happy with the purchase and Sub Sports make quality products for consumers on a budget.
I primarily run in these (I use them under shorts or insulated running pants depending on the outside temperature) and find that the amount of compression they provide is nice without being overbearing or restrictive, and they definitely have a nice texture next to the skin. I did penalize them a point for a relatively minor fit issue: I found the waistband to fit exceptionally high on me and as a result these tend to work down after a bit of running requiring occasional adjustments during the run. This will obviously be different depending on individual height and inseam dimensions primarily, but I don't have that issue with other brands to any major degree.
For the price these are a bargain, and while not perfect, if you can find a pair that fit you well I expect the value proposition will win you over.
