The compression aspect of the pants was good. It helps to prevent cramps and fatigue during distance endurance racing. They are light enough for tropical climates.
I felt the waistband was not wide enough. It did not provide enough back or core support. I found it squashed my belly either above or below the waist elastic which after a long time became uncomfortable if not adjusted. This maybe more of an issue for less slim women. A wide control style waist (10cm+) would provide far more comfort and support.
