Catalyst Tight

What does it do?

Anti-chafe, sweat wicking, breathable slim fit with contrast side paneling. These are designed to be flattering and to smooth over all the bumps, (there is even a crotch gusset to avoid any unwanted, erm, clinging). Gathered knee articulation vents provide further breathability, and there is a discreet zip pocket for keys and other items.

The verdict

These are possibly the most comfortable and flattering leggings I’ve ever ran in. The side panels are slimming and everything feels like it is smoothed over a tightened – not an easy feat. Unlike most tights however, these feature a drawstring, which I found had to be tightened to avoid them slipping during runs. Not a big issue, but one worth noting.
