Brilliant in reflectivity and design
I purchased the Magic Number tights (in curfew) for dark runs, primarily commutes during which I wear a backpack, so reflective on my legs is necessary. I also use a blinking bike light on the back of the backpack. The reflective fabric is BRIGHT. The polygon of reflective on the back is typically covered by my tops; you could tuck in your shirt to expose it. What most surprised me was how much I love the tights themselves. They have a thick handfeel but wear nicely in motion, stretching and responding to movement. You guys- the best part? There are no seams on the lateral (outside) part of the legs, which gives them a smooth feel and look. In fact, I have worn them commuting to work, then thrown on a skirt and high boots (to cover the reflective pieces) and I passed as professional looking. !! I bought my normal size, 6, I am 140lbs and 5'4. The tights are the warmest of my suite of oiselle tights- firecracker, jogging knickers, pocket joggers. They are my preferred thickness for wintry coastal pac NW- humid, cold, but not freezing temperatures.
- fabric, reflectivity, no seams on outside
- i'm a big fan of the side pocket, but ... the seamless outside might be worth sacrificing the side pocket

Perfect Pacific NW Winter Tights!
Living in Portland, OR means dark, rainy runs through poorly lit neighborhood streets in the fall and winter months. These tights are a favorite of mine right now for many reasons. First, I feel safer crossing intersections since I know I am more visible to cars, especially in the pouring rain. The reflective part is REALLY bright! Second, the material is thick and warm, perfect for when the temperature dips. Lastly, the back pocket is big enough to fit my phone and an energy bar for longer weekend runs. I purchased my usual Oiselle size and they fit perfectly. I cannot recommend these tights enough!
