Arctic Lynx Maternity Activewear Midweight Leggings

These leggings are stylish, but more importantly are comfortable and functional during physical activity while pregnant. They are able to grow with you as you grow, without being too tight on the belly region. This product is best for comfort, functionality, and temperature regulation during physical activity both indoors and in moderate outdoor temperatures when worn as a single layer. I would recommend them to any active mother during pregnancy, especially runners, skiers, snowshoers, hikers,… Full review

Ronhill Trackster Classic

The iconic product, which still works, after all these years. Super-light, stretchy, tough, comfy, versatile, and easy to care for. Extensively copied, but still relevant. Ron Hill was an English long-distance runner, in an era when all athletes wore cotton. Best known, to US readers, as the first British winner of the Boston Marathon (1970), he pioneered carbo loading, redesigned shoes and clothing, and used his academic background as a Textile Chemist to shift the entire paradigm of sportswear,… Full review

Ridge Merino Crowley Tights

Ridge Merino's Crowley Tights are a highly compressive, warm, and durable running tight for women. Made from a nylon-spandex-merino wool blend, they offer the best of synthetics (stretch and durability) with merino wool (comfort and odor control) for cold-weather active pursuits. I've been wearing the Crowley Tights for running during Maine winters and find them most comfortable in temps below freezing. These tights are...tight, so if you're not looking for a lot of compression consider sizing up. Full review

Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 Full Length Tights

I've been using Opedix products for three months now and find they provide great stability, support, and pain reduction over the day. They are also very comfortable and the low waistband means I can easily wear them under pants and shorts. I have suffered with sacroiliac joint and hip problems for 15 years. I've tried many sacroiliac and hip belts/supports, most of which were uncomfortable, unhelpful and/or painful. Opedix is the product I have been looking for. I use Opedix Core-Tec Shorts. Cheers,… Full review

Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 Full Length Tights

Technical tights that improve alignment for increased performance. A valuable tool that can be used for training, racing, or injury rehabilitation. When I first received the Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 tights I was not sure what to make of them. Opedix has utilized years of scientific research in the biomechanical movement of the human body when designing their performance wear. In order to achieve what Opedix calls Kinetic Health, they have designed their tights with what they call "Torque Reform Technology"… Full review

Salomon Momentum II Tight

My favorite winter running tights. I have two pair and may purchase another. Love the double layer at the knees and the length! Several things make these my go-to winter favorites: I LOVE the double layer at the knees. It's surprising how the extra layer really helps to keep those knees warm (especially on a cold day) seems like I'm not as stiff starting out when it's really cold because my knees are already warm. Very smart thinking of Salomon designers. Thank goodness for the extra length! Nothing… Full review

Opedix S1 Tights

Skiing and snowboarding and running are good for our mind, body and soul, yet we all acknowledge the toll it takes on our knees. Each time our feet absorb impact, the impact travels from the feet to the knees, pushing our knee joints to the outside. This creates wear points on the inside of the joint where most of the "load" is born. Oddly enough, this seems to increase as we age. The Opedix S1 Knee Support System tights, developed in conjunction with the Steadman Hawkins Sports Medicine Foundation,… Full review
