I really hate, hate, hate ankle zips on tights, yet they seem to be well on their way to world domination. I'm struggling to find any new tights that aren't compression tights that don't have them. Anyone know of any? Thanks!

Sweaty Betty running tights don't have zips although they are pretty pricy (wait for the sale). I used to love them because they were nice and long for us tall girls but now that they've ditched the zips I don't like!

Hahaha! Everyone's different. Shame more companies don't offer both options and different leg lengths.

I've got a pair of Brooks tights which don't have ankle zips, and they're quite long. Comfortable too. I think they're the Brooks Infiniti Tight II.

I have a pair from Decathlon, their cheapest ones from last year, that have no ankle zips.

I have zip free from Ron Hill, Adidas and Nike and ASICS although most others are all zipped including thse from pre mentioned are mainly zipped

I had a pair Brooks that were zipless.

At the moment I've got a pair Adidas with zips, but have already got the safety pins lined up for when the zips give up!

On a similar note, is it possible to get tights that have a small zip pocket for keys?
