TALL BIRD TIGHTS
Tights for all the heights! These are the tall tights in our new petite-regular-long tights line-up. They use our Plya™ Interlock fabric which is both lightweight and compressive. Side pockets and pintuck detailing make them the every day tights for any run, any workout, and daily pursuit. A go-to pair of running tights for all the get-up-and-go.
- Plya Interlock fabric (polyester / spandex)
- interior drawcord
- pintuck details at ankle
- rear zip pocket
- two side leg pockets
- 26.75" inseam (size 4)
These have great pockets and are a great length for us tall birds. My only complaint is that the waistband makes my tummy pooch out.
It would have been so easy to make the top panel have a slight bit of compression to prevent this. But instead there is a thin band on top that's tigher, and then the stomach panel is not tight, which gives the "pooch" effect. i hope to see better compression in future versions.
I've been looking for a pair of full length running tights with side pockets and these are nearly perfect. I'm 5'8''/size 10 and the Tall Bird tights nicely cover my ankles. They stay in place - I don't think I've ever had to adjust them on a run! And the side pockets are a good size for my phone or snacks. My only complaint is that the waistband isn't the most flattering. The seams cut in a bit at the hip and again at my waist, creating a bit of a double muffin top. Not the best look. But at least they are comfortable. (I tried the same size in the Lux Go Anywhere 3/4 tight and had to return it as the top waistband was so tight that it hurt after an hour or two, though the hips and legs were plenty big on me.) I would love a pair of these Tall Bird tights in the Lux fabric!
Just ran 10 miles on a treadmill in these pants, and absolutely loved them. Not over-heated, stay in place and great pockets for my phone. The ultimate best is a great fit on my 5'11" frame. Thank you for making running pants for tall birds!
I snapped these tights up the minute Oiselle released them after years of hoping that they'd make some longer tights. There are some great features with these tights and overall they've been working well for cold, wet trail runs all fall and winter. So happy Oiselle started adding side pockets to tights! Perfect for phone, or quickly stashing wrappers and gloves. Nevertheless, they are still dang short! I don't think I have a crazy long inseam (I am 5'8"/sz 4) and they are still a solid 3"+ above my ankles. At one point I even measured them against another pair of regular length Oiselle tights that I have because I thought they might have been mislabeled. They would have been 10/10 if the inseam had been 28-29"
If you struggle with finding long enough running tights, take note of the inseam (26.75") so you know what to expect.
I am ordering another pair of these, because they are LONG! And comfy and stay up and have pockets and cute detailing and and and..... I am a Oiselle superfan but these may just be my favorite product EVER. Thank you for considering us taller birds!
These tights reach my ankles. I feel like I could mic drop right there, but they are also comfy and have multiple pockets. Thank you for finally making a tight for us long legged birds!
