Dog attack unscathed in Bulgaria!

5

Got these for Xmas...wore them out on New Year's for a snowy mtn run in Bulgaria with a buddy. 2 hrs into our run, got attacked by a hunting dog....significant laceration on thigh. Compression tights show no wear/tear at all!! Couldn't believe it... I needed stitches, but my pants are unscathed. Oh yeah, the tights kept my junk together until I could get off the mtn and seek medical assistance.

My new favorite pair of tights

4

These are great tights. I live in Northeast Ohio so I wear tights quite often because of the long winters. These tights fit snugly but allow easy movement due to the vents behind the knees. In addition, they have a lined crotch that provides some wind protection. My only complaint is that the zippers around the calf/ankle have a tendency to rub if placed in the wrong area. The pull tab for the zipper is large and several times it has rubbed the skin raw. So just be careful to place on the inside of the calf. Beside that I love them!! My wife was always stealing my tights so I even bought her two pair of woman's velocity tights and she wears these over her more expensive ones now.

Awesome garment for runners !

I use the product when running outdoors. I think it has been designed after taking into account a lot of suggestions from runners! It has nice small pocket at the pack to keep some money and car keys. The zippers at the ankles make it easy to slip into as well as slip out of them. The mesh is a great ventilator and the compression is awesome! Feels too good and I dunno if this is real or belief, I have started to run better and faster in them!

Finally, tights in TALL sizes!

4

At 6'6", the days of cold ankles are gone, as these cover all the way down. Too bad the ankle opening is so small and tight when fully zipped down. Also the drawstring is too short and gets pulled into the opening frequently. It's hard to get out, but mainly because the waist band stitching is so tight and thorough (sign of quality)! Otherwise, functionality, fit and comfort are outstanding, and the venting is a well thought out option in a tight with this outstanding value!

Great tights for the money

I love the tights. I was overwhelmed by the number of products available and the costs, but these from RoadRunner are great! I love wearing them to run when the temperature dips down below 50. They are fairly thin, so will probably have to layer them when it really gets cold. They are very true to size. My only complaint for me is that they fit really tight around my ankles. My son thinks they are very cool, so I bought a second pair to keep him out of mine.

Great Pair of Tights!

4

First time wearing tights and I have been amazed and how good they make my legs feel. Strongly recommend. I could not decide between the small and the medium and went with the medium. Although it works, I probably should have gone with the smaller size as the medium is quite roomy in the thighs and waist. The drawstring could be longer and/or of a different material. The pocket in the back is so small that I have not found a use for it yet. These are very small quibbles.

Initially I was very impressed by this product. Out of the packaging it seemed to be well constructed and the sizing (I'm 5'10", 180 lbs and medium fit me nicely) was right on. My only complaint is that the ankle zippers don't have any kind of backing material, so the zipper rests against the back of my ankle. After five miles this resulted in a bloody raw spot. For a few more cents, they could have sewed something in to prevent skin-zipper contact. Once again, thanks to RR for hassle-free shipping to an APO (an increasingly rare thing).

These Tights are a Bargin

I bought these primarily for running in the cold and rain of Northern California winter. After wearing the Velocity tights for a couple of runs, I can vouch for their warmth, lightness and non-chafing qualities on a 12 mile run. Everything I know about the compression factor is anecdotal, so my expectations were low for that feature...and I still can't tell if it makes a difference for me. My strongest feelings can be expressed by my purchase of a second pair yesterday.

These are awesome I am a 6'1' tall female and long fit perfect- yes I wear the mens- womens are never long enough. I have run in them in cool weather and I wear them with another pair of running pants in below zero weather. They fit great and I like the zipper legs. Keep up the good work of providing us tall people with clothes that fit.

Great running tights

I bought these tights for my husband who is 6'3" and usually wears a 32-34 or 32-36 pant. I bought these in a Med tall and they are plenty long for him. He loves that he doesn't get hot in them and they seem to massage his legs while running. I'm getting ready to buy another pair.

The only reason I gave these 4 stars is the drawstring. I thought it was funny when I saw that comment in the other reviews. But, the people where 100% right. I almost lost the string the first time I put them on. Great other than that one little thing.

Great Tights

Just one run in them and I'm sold! My prior pair of tights from Nordic Track have lasted me a year, but with weight loss, they've gotten a little loose. These are a nice replacement and I'm very happy with their fit, even for a bigger guy (235 lbs)! No bunching and they stayed put from waist to ankle.

First pair of tights - I'm a believer

This is my first pair of tights and definitely not my last. I got these for running and they are everything I wanted: warm, comfortable, good fit, extra features like key holder and ankle zippers. I definitely recommend these! I looked all around and you can't beat the price.

Second Pair

Bought my second pair of these tights. Love them, but they could be improved by making the ankles a bit larger and putting a longer drawstring in the waist. Two very small items that kept me from giving these tights a five star rating.

A definite winner

I typically have a problem with most tights being too short and riding up the ankles. These fit well and had plenty of length (I'm 6'1"). I use these mostly for xc skiing and they're very comfortable.

Excellent runnng tights

I wear these tights almost everyday during the winter and feel they give the best compromise between running comfort and warmth of any tights I've tried in 35 years of running. I like them so much, I ordered two more sets.

Ran first winter training run in snow, wind and 17 degree weather. No chaffing, felt nice and snug and kept me warm. Only issue is drawstring too short on first use but elastic worked well without it.

Nice compression tight

I bought these because they came in Tall and they were so much less expensive than other compression tights. They are great alone and when it gets cold, will make a nice base layer.

Finally a LONG tight...

5

I have bought this tight before, but since then they have obviously updated the pattern. Both times I purchased a medium-long because I have a 34 inch inseam. Previously they had been adequately long. The current version is very long, so much so that I'm wondering if the regular length might not work. Very happy. These tights are warm enough in a single layer down to 10 degrees, or 20 degrees with a wind. Below that they make a nice base layer. Some people have commented on the key pocket in the back. I find it to be quite secure. The stretch of the fabric and the over-flap do the job with no worries. The one minor issue these tights do have, just like the last model, is a bit of rubbing on the inside either where the zipper pull is on the ankle or where the zipper ends on the calf. Not really a big deal especially if you are wearing a taller sock or a sock liner.

Great tights

I used this product once so far - for a 1/2 marathon run. Though Februarys in Minnesota can be bitter, this run took place on one of the "warmest" days of the winter. Temps were in the mid-40s that day and the tights felt great. I had worn them one other time (right when I got them) when the temps were in the single digits BELOW zero. I could feel the cold through the tights then. But, I can only imagine that they would have been sufficient or near-sufficient had I been running. Wearing the tights on race day proved to be more than I needed for warmth. Nevertheless, they felt great. They were tight enough to provide a great deal of support but not too tight to be constrictive. The ankle zippers were a nice surprise and frankly speaking, the complaints I had read previously about the zipper chafing the ankles are moot if one wears reasonable socks (a little above the ankle).

My only pair of tights so I don't have another point of reference when it comes to tights, but these are awesome. I love the fit and how I perform in them.

Perfect Tights

I bought men's medium tall and men's large tall. Both fit because I am just on the "cusp" between the two sizes. The large fits a tad better with my current weight but will still fit as I lose some pounds. Ordering and delivery were prompt and professional. I wear for physical training 4 days a week and for daily "speed walking". Sometimes wear just around the apartment or grocery shopping. As a 6'3'" woman, I needed the men's size tights for the length, but they still fit the female shape in all the right places. There is plenty of length for me and the zipper leg bottoms are very well made and work easily. There is no problem at all with the drawstring length.

Very effective base layer for winter running under a light shell. Good compression fit without being too snug. Top quality construction.

Nice tights for the money.

Got these for a gift. I am 6'0" 185 lbs with a 35" inseam. Pretty leggy, so it's hard to find tights that don't leave a big gap between my shoes and the botoom cuff of the tights. I have the medium tall which fit me perfectly, excellent tights for long-legged people and I applaud RRS for offering that option. The fit is good, the material feels good, the compression is there but not extreme. I don't wear these by themselves bellow 20 degrees F. Keeping in mind that these are not thermal compression tights, they aren't made for zero degree runs, but I wish they offered a thermal version of this tight. The only knock is the rear key pocket, I wouldn't trust it to stay closed and I will sew a small velcro piece on it myself. Overall, nice tights for the price and I recommend them.

Great product for the $$$

I'm 5'11", 175 lbs, 33" inseam, 15+ miles per week..."Large" tights were a little long in the leg and higher waisted than I'd like, "Mediums" would have been a better fit. Several wash/dry cycles have helped, the tights are no worse for wear and are holding up well. The tights are well made, no complaints with zippers, drawstrings or private parts rubbing where they shouldn't. The "compression" is not overly strong, but is noticeable while running, feels good! For me the tights will be too warm to wear in hot weather, wish a lighter weight compression tight was available for the same money. I wish they came in a grey...tired of looking like a stealth Ninja while I run. I may try tights with "more" compression next time, but I am very happy with my first pair of compression tights and have no complaints.

Great for cold days!

These are mostly everything I expected; warm, comfortable, don't get in the way. I've noticed that the draw string is pretty short and as I'm putting them on, I've lost it into the hole once or twice - was a pain to get out. Not a huge deal, since you don't need it to hold them up if you've sized them right. Also, it took a few tries to get them hiked up and "in place" so to speak. They want to sit low in the crotch by default and I had to work a little bit to get them all the way up and "situated."

I use these by themselves on my trail runs in SoCal. At 6'0" they fit perfectly with no bunching at the ankles and are very comfortable for running on slightly cooler days when you don't want to wear shorts. I would recommend these to someone who has never owned or used compression pants before before you spend big buck on something more extravagant. I give these a 5 out of 5 because for the cost and quality and function of the product.
