Love these tights...but...
I tried out my Flyout Tights yesterday on an 8 mile run in 40 degree (30ish degree windchill) weather, and loved how warm they are! I am really looking forward to my next super cold run to really test the warmth factor. My only issue is that these tights seem really long - I'm 5'5" and wear an 8 and the waist came nearly up to my armpits. They "settled"; a little over the run, but just seem way longer than my other Oiselle bottoms. Still would recommend as a great warm option!
- Warmth, design, fit in the legs
- Strange overall length
If you like pockets, you absolutely need these!
I never knew how badly I needed pockets in my running tights until I finally had a pair with some. These tights are incredible! Made of a thicker fabric then your typical tight, they keep me warmer in the cooler temps. They look fantastic on, run a tad on the small side (but I didn't size up from my normal Oiselle sizing) but again the biggest draw is the pockets! I run with my iPhone and keys neatly tucked into them, and they remain secure through the entire run.
- Run a tad on the small side
Warm & wonderful!
These are just the right amount of warm without being stiff, and the material feels high-quality and flattering. These are perfect for running out here in the Minnesota winter and they're just what I was looking for. Best leggings I've owned and a great investment - hoping they'll last.
- warmth, fabric, compression, pockets
- seams show a little wear
Great but with a few caveats
I recently moved to Boston (from San Diego) and have been searching high and low for comfortable, warm running pants that aren't bulky. These are are almost perfect!
They are warm (although I expected/hoped for them to be a teeny bit warmer) and not bulky at all - yaay! All the pockets are awesome and totally necessary for winter pants, and the tulip cut at the ankle is really pretty touch (although usually covered up by socks).
I'm always a size 6 in Oiselle and these fit just right, except the very top of the waist is a bit tight! .... ESPECIALLY since they come with a drawcord so one could tighten that up if needed. Other than that though, they are a very cozy pant. I'd buy more if more 6's were available!
- Compression, styling
- Tight at waist top
