Enjoying my cold outdoor runs!
Living in Colorado, I have a number of opportunities to go for very cold outdoor runs in the winter. Most of the tights I own (including several other 2XU versions) do an acceptable job down to around freezing, but when it dips below that or the wind starts blowing, those runs become torture tests! These wind defense tights help with that a lot. I ran just a few days ago with light snow falling, temps in the low teens, and a light breeze. Wearing these, I never once thought about my lower half being cold! They also fit well (true to size), seem durable (like my other 2XU gear), and the material isn’t overly stiff (compromising running motion). I imagine they’d be good for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing too, but have yet to try that. Overall, these are solid winter tights!
