Today was finally the day when I caved and pulled on some full-length tights for my run. The start-time temp was about 28, but the wind was fierce and thus made it feel like the low 20s.
Lucky for me, I had a new pair of Lucy Hatha leggings to try out. How did they hold up? I’d say pretty well.
My thoughts on them: I love the material–it felt really smooth and soft and moved with me as I ran. I also loved the fact that they are seamless, which I think adds to the comfort. As far as the weight–just about right for these conditions, although I think down into the teens they might be a bit light. The fit was good, although the length was a bit long for my short 5′ 4” frame.
One thing I really liked about these tights was the wide waistband; it was comfy and hit about mid-rise. While there was no drawstring, the tights didn’t slide down as I ran, which tights often do (anyone else have this issue?).
What I didn’t like about the tights? If you read my post yesterday, you won’t be surprised to hear me say a complete lack of pockets. Not even a key pocket. I made sure I wore a top with one to compensate, but again, give me pockets in everything, please!
Still, I’m sure I’ll turn to these tights over and over this winter thanks to their comfort level. I could see using them for yoga as well.
