I am looking for some warm fleece-lined running tights that I can wear running outdoors in those bone-chilling 10-20 degree days/nights. I'd prefer tights so I won't feel drafty air on my skin, and I'd like the outer material to be some kind of stretchy nylon-shell-type material, and I'd like them to be lined with some nice microfleece-type material.
Does anybody have any suggestions? Any help is greatly appreciated!
I have been thoroughly impressed with all of the CW-X products. They have all different types of tights and/or shorts. I know that they have Insulator tights which I think is what you are looking for. I run all year long in Utah where the weather is not always the best and plenty cold. I don't even use the insulator tights and they keep me plenty warm.
I have a couple different brands of tights and I'd say I'm most impressed with my Pearl Izumi ones for my coldest runs. They're fleece-lined and fit well. The only drawback is that they don't have zippers down at the ankles so they can be a little challenging to get off. It's the Select Thermal tights - they make it in women's too.
Emily - I recently found a brand called PLUSH and their leggings are perfect for running. They're not meant for running I dont think, but I've been using them every day to run and as thermals when I ski. There are 2 versions - one is a fleece-lined tight. The 2nd is fleece-lined, but the outside has nylon shell that you were looking for - it's called the Stitched Legging #P301G. I wear these out at night too! you can check them out at www.plush-apparel.com or http://www.barenecessities.com/search.aspx?search=plush&ft=1. They're so versatile and are perfect to run or cycle in.
