Please can any ladies offer advice as to which are the best running tights to get?

i've got some puma 3/4 length tights which are fantastic. also some nike full length ones - they're dark blue and light blue with a wee pocket at the back. both are excellent. that probably doesn't help much as i don't know the names of them, if they have ones!

Thanks, I will browse and see if I can find them.

tights with a different material around the knee helps - makes them feel more natural when you're moving.

So... Can blokes wear anything like this when it gets cold? Are they unisex?
11/10/2004 at 14:53
Men in tights!!! Sure
11/10/2004 at 14:55
depends how proud you are!! gets the ladies glance anyway.....

No, but really.... are they???? Don't wanna get cold! Might have hairy (yet shapely) legs but if I'm out for an hour in February I don't want sweat to freeze!

Badgerdaddy - I've taken the plunge and just got my first couple of pairs of tights (from Aldi, £7.99 each). A decent pair will keep you warm and wick the sweat away from your legs. My worry was more about overheating, but htey seem fine in that department too.

Cool, ta. Not sure how they'll look on a lardy bloke like myself but I guess I'll find out soon enough...

Now that the weather is colder I run mainly in tights, can recommend both the concurve ones which are thicker but no pocket & Nike tech tights which are again very comfy & have a small zipped pocket at the back.

No problems with overheating & I find them more comfortable than shorts

Badgerdaddy - probably quite flattering, if I'm anything to go by!

there's loads of fellas out in tights at the moment. they're great for warming up in before a track session and longer runs on colder days.

Aldi ones have a small zipped pocket at the back too!

Ron Hill strides are pretty good and not quite so revealing as actual "tights" for the blokes. Get a bit soggy in heavy rain unless you go for the DXB version but they seem to do a good job otherwise of wicking and preventing wind chill whilst not over-heating.

Now... as a novice and a non-tight-wearer... D'you wear pants underneath or what? I assume you wear shorts on top...

Doesn't matter a lot - if it's cold enough to wear tights then after a few minutes out there in the cold there ain't much to see!!

12/10/2004 at 13:01
Go commando, no shorts over either.
16/10/2004 at 14:35
I've had some disasters with them in the past, ebcause I'm very skinny, but I found the Adidas ones fitted me best... but then, that's me...
