Who doesn’t love a good pair of running tights? For those days when it’s just a bit too chilly for your bare legs, there’s no better option for keeping warm and maintaining freedom and flexibility. What’s more, tights have come a long way in recent years.
Demand more when shopping for tights because you really can have it all. Your tights should offer superior stretch, excellent moisture management to keep you dry and, if you really want to swing for the fence, look for something with a waterproof exterior, too.
Brooks Seattle Tight | $165
Perhaps it should come as no surprise that Seattle-based Brooks is responsible for designing the most weather resistant tights on the market. For the runner who won’t accept rain delays, the Seattle Tight is as good as it gets.
Layered perfectly atop a four-way stretch fabric, the Seattle Tight features Brooks’ DriLayer SuperSeal fabric for breathable wind and waterproof protection. The fabric is also placed strategically throughout the pant, including the all-important front-facing section, so it repels the elements no matter where they hit you.
Saucony Omni Reflex Tight | $98
For the early morning and late night runners among us, Saucony has tossed style and visibility in a blender and come out with the Omni Reflex Tight.
The fabric is Saucony’s Drylete 2.0 + Power Net, which is a fancy way of saying “awesome.” The striped pattern across the lower leg is 360-degree reflective to ensure you cannot be overlooked, with or without the benefit of daylight. Meanwhile, the fabric content is a dream—removing moisture while lending the perfect mix of flexibility and comfort.
