I use these for cold weather running and LOVE them. They're brushed for softness on the inside and warm...but not too warm, wicks sweat well. My only wish for these is for them to have a little more compression around my leg muscles for support. I'm using XS and I'm 5'3" and weigh 118lbs. I'll use these until they fall apart, hopefully for a long time!
Not as warm as I hoped
I bought these tights in hopes that they would be as warm as a pair of Brooks running pants that I've had for four or five years (unfortunately, I don't remember what they were called, but they're not made anymore). I was hoping the Utopia tights were made from the same material, but they're not. They're a little warmer than my insulated CWX and Saucony tights, but not as much as I hoped. Maybe it's just me, but when it's less than 30 degrees out (which isn't really that cold), I need to wear long underwear plus insulated tights in order to avoid freezing cold, chapped thigh and butt skin. I was hoping these tights could eliminate the need for two other pairs, but it seems like that's not the case. I don't understand why nobody makes truly warm running tights. I can't be the only one. Otherwise, fit is good, I'm 5'-5" 115 lbs with a narrow build and the XS fit me perfectly. Another plus is that there's a flap of fabric over the ankle zippers so it doesn't give you achilles tendon blisters. Also, the reflective parts are effective but not tacky so you're safe without looking ridiculous. Appearance-wise, they're no lululemon, but they're about as flattering as any other pair of tights.
Exactly What I Needed for Cold Weather!
I use these tights for running in cold weather. The fit (medium) was dead on and tight enough to still be flattering.
The tights are reflective at all angles and I love the stash pocket in the back for easy access.
These can be used alone in 30* - 40* weather. Anything colder and I'll want to put a second layer over them. If its too warm, there are zippers on the back of each calf to cool down.
The only con was one of the pant legs were a little wider than the other at the bottom.
I bought these after they were recommended to me by a fellow runner for running in the cold. I wore them on a 7am NE Ohio December morning, around 25 degrees. The friend told me they would be perfect for this type of weather to keep me warm. I was so disappointed when my legs were still cold even after a 10k. I guess I'm still looking for the right tight...
I love these tights! I'm a petite 4'11" and bought the XS. They are a little long but I don't swim in these tights. I just leave the zipper unzipped at the bottom. I wore them on a 10+ mile run recently and they felt great!
I am a southern girl recently transplanted to Alaska. These tights keep me warm while running on the frozen tundra.
