Funky tights.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Not Jim the Runner - Another Running Guy from Not San Jose, CA on Friday, December 24, 2010
Funky tights. Funky fabric, funky fit and funky noise. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill black running pants.
The fabric is two-layered and comfy - no chafe-inducing 'hotspots.' But IT IS LOUD. Not when the outside layers come in contact and rub together but when the inner layer rubs on your skin. You get quite audible 'swishes' from your thighs and calves. You can't hide it.
Which brings me to the fit. Large at the beltline, yet very tight across the lower half of the fanny. Loose at the top of the thigh, tight in the middle (noise area) and loose in the knees. Same for the lower leg - tight and noisy across the calf and loose everywhere else.
I'm a pretty normal sized guy - no bubble butt or softball-sized thighs or stumpy legs. These britches are cut funky.
Good stuff here, just know what you're getting.
