I asked for running tights for Christmas because I was tired of my legs freezing while sporting my usual 1990s grunge era shorts and long underwear running outfit, and this pair specifically because they are highly visible in the dark, offering 360 degrees of high reflectivity thanks to the striped pattern on the lower legs. They are surprisingly warm for how light they are, yet breathable enough to minimize overheating. There is a small zippered hip pocket and an interior drawcord, but other than that, these tights are super basic and highly functional.

MSRP: $98. Find them at Fleet Feet Sports in Spokane or at Saucony.com. //
