I had wanted some great winter running pants or tights for a LONG time that wouldn't ride up or work their way down as I ran (putting the crotch between my thighs, that is!), and would not flop around my ankles. I also wanted some leg-wear that would be warm and comfy. These tights work great and meet my criteria! I was concerned that the wool fabric would be scratchy or tight, especially in dry Colorado winter air, but after a few outdoor runs in these tights, I haven't had any problems with skin irritation (and I've got sensitive skin.) I was also concerned that the fabric might be too sheer, but the only modesty issue is that these tights are quite form-fitting. The wide elastic waistband is comfortable, but the ankle elastic bands were too tight for me so I stretched them manually a bit and unzipped the ankle zippers slightly and that did the trick.
There's a small interior pocket (not zippered) to hold things, like some cash or an ID. It would have been nice if these tights had another, sturdier and/or more capacious pocket.
Finally, as a petite woman (I'm 5' 3") these tights are just a little tiny bit long on me, but not enough that I wanted to send them back. I've shrunk other Ibex items in the wash before to get them to fit me better (warm wash, warm dry, or drip dry, depending on how much shrinkage I was aiming for) and I'll probably do the same with these tights.
I bought these in the bittersweet color and it's a dark, subtle brown. I find it a pretty pleasant color and it's close to the color swatch online at Ibex's website.
Overall, I'd recommend these tights for those who wish to exercise outdoors in the winter on cold days--the first time I wore these, the temperature was in the 40s and with the Colorado sunshine, I actually felt TOO warm! The next time, the temperature was probably 29 or 30 F. and these tights were perfect. I'm not giving these tights a perfect score because of the fit for petites like myself (hint, hint Ibex, make a short length!) and because of the really tight ankle elastic bands and the single pocket. Also more colors would be nice!!
