Ready for action.
It seems like every winter day involves the Ibex Women's Energy Free Tights whether you're running, skiing, or stretching out in a yoga session. The super soft and non-itchy merino wool regulates your body temperature so you're neither too warm nor too cold, and its antimicrobial quality prevents this pair of tights from stinking up your house after full-day excursions at the ski resort. Ibex blends merino wool with Lycra and nylon for the elasticity and durability you need to run or ski comfortably. Its form fit and flatlock seams help you layer up without any bulk or restrictions. And the wide waistband lies comfortably across your hips so you don't feel any discomfort throughout your yoga class.

The overall cut/fit is flattering, and comfortable. The rise is perfect, not too tall, not too low. The wide waist band combined with the mid-rise, makes for a super flattering waist. No sausage link syndrome!
This fabric is incredibly comfortable. It has the Ibex "boucle" texture, with a super comfortable stretch.
I'm 5'5" and usually wear an XL or 14/16 depending on brand. The XL in the Ibex Izzy is perfect for me. They are a little long, but I figure that makes sense for someone 5'5" buying an XL, and they are not overly long. If anything it helps keep the ankles covered in the cold. I recently tried on a bazillion leggings, and these were the clear winners.
I gave them a test drive, literally, on Sunday. While we drove back from the desert, we got stuck for an extra 3 hours in the car, turning it into a 7 hour drive. Not the longest day in a czr by a long shot, but a good test run. And I was pretty psyched to have such comfortable leggings!
