"i wouldn't think of starting out in anything but tights and running shorts."

Tights vs. Soft shell pants on 04/10/2011 18:08:12 MDT Print View

I'm no expert, but I've heard that a lot of former tight wearers have switched to wearing either:
[warm weather]: long-long shorts, such as Under Armour mesh, 10" shorts or
[cool weather]: soft shells, such as Pata-Gucci "Simple Guides" in a light color because of greater abrasion resistance and rain resistance. "Belay Pants" can be MontBell full-zip pants, in winter.
