My runs go a lot better when I'm wearing these pants. Not only are they supportive and make my knees feel great but they look good so I feel better! They are tight so I don't like to wear them for long after my runs because I start to get itchy where they bunch behind the knees. While running I have no discomfort though. I like the 3/4 length vs the full length pants.
I love how the stitching is colorful and crosses all over the pants. It gives them a unique, fun look.
Even though these are not the CW-X insulated pants, they are still warm. I can't wear them above 70 degrees outside. It's so hard to run in shorts instead of these amazing pants though.
The only thing that I do not like: the drawstring waist band. It's weird tying it in a bow tie and trying to tuck it into the pants or letting it hang out. Also, mine was fraying so I put fray check on it which made the edge a little rough. Ultimately I pulled the string out.
