The days are already getting colder and whether I want to admit it or not, winter is coming. I run at 5:30 in the morning and it’s time to break out the cold-weather gear. Thanks to Title Nine, I’ve got a new option for tights.
The Crash 2.0 Tights, which I received in a medium in a lovely charred grey color, are some of the coziest tights I’ve ever experienced, with a Polartec® fleece lining and a tightly woven exterior that can withstand the icy wind. The fleecy interior feels like a snuggly blanket around my legs which ALMOST makes me want to stay home when it’s dreary outside. But when I do get out the door, they keep me warm and dry.
The Polartec® Power Stretch material in the Crash 2.0 Tights means that you’ll get a nice form-fitting feel that stretches and recovers well. In addition to this, the tights wick and evaporate moisture and unlike many other heavier tights, theses breathe well too. In addition to the usual specs, there are hidden reflective strips along the bottom of the tights on the inside, so you can roll them up for a touch of visibility at your feet. It’s a nice, considerate option.
These tights are considered a midlayer item, but they can easily be used as a stand-alone item for those brisk mornings when it’s not quite winter advisory-level weather. Of course, personal preference plays into this, and since I tend to run a bit hot when I run, they are actually on the thicker side for me until we officially hit the winter. I did wear them on a camping trip to Silver Falls in November, and they were 100% perfect for that. They could easily fit under a pair of snow pants for winter activities with the close-to-your skin feel. They are not only warm and fuzzy inside, but are abrasion-resistant, so they wear well and will last a long time. I also love that there is a zipper pocket on the right-hand hip that’s just perfect for my large phone.
Title Nine has never disappointed me, as they really take into consideration how a woman is built. I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of their Crash 2.0 Peacoat, so stay tuned. Until then, buy the Crash 2.0 Tights to get yourself in gear before it gets too cold to wait any longer.
