Hi, I am looking to get a pair of long distance tights, that will provide sufficient insulation when its too cold for shorts, but wick, and may be treated for water resistance. Any suggestions??

What do you call long distance?

I have a pair of Asics winter tights that I am very pleased with. I did not run with them through puddles nor in the rain so I cannot report on water resistance.

Ive got a pair of Ron Hills waterproof thingies and found them good on cold nights -- but if I get to 8 miles I would have to take them off and swap for shorts tp allow my legs to breathe better

Ron Hill tracksters I find to be ok and quite reasonably priced. Have a look mail order in RW

Nike dri-fit tights. Excellent, warm and reasonably breathable.

I'm with 'tafkate', Nike dri-fit tights worn over dri-fit cycling shorts for some, er, support. They don't have those annoying foot strap things that bug the hell out of me!

Nike dri-fit are great as they're good at retaining warmth when wet. Just got a pair of Fila tights that are thinner but really good as well.

Me too. I swear by Nike Dri-fit tights - cold, wet, muddy, whatever.

I'll add to the general accolade for Nike Dri-Fit: although I'm not so keen on the "extreme" version, it has to be *very* cold indeed for them to feel anything other than too sweaty. Mind you, judging by the snow outside my window, that criteria might be met for this afternoon's run...
