These tights are a second skin, smooth and very comfortable. The elasticated fabric wasn’t too tight, and the high and wide waist band sat well above my stomach. They offer an excellent range of movement, very stretchy but never stretching out of shape. The knees and seat are reinforced which will help with durability, and the ankles are loose so you can fit longer socks easily underneath them. In the rain, water initially beaded off the surface and eventually soaked into the material but didn’t feel too cold against my skin. The flat lock seams reduce chafing although after several test runs there is wear on some of the external stitching between the thighs. The pocket at the back is rather small and suitable only for a key or credit card but not much else. They wash well and retain their shape.
► Verdict: Superb freedom of movement and comfort.
► Best for: Perfect for any activity – running, walking, cycling.
