Made for the Mess
As winter begins its thaw, we’re left to contend with the mess and the mud. Leaping over snow mounds, landing in slush – it may be a little warmer than yesterday, but the weather still keeps us on our toes. Drawing inspiration from the snug comfort and protection of wetsuits, our Thaw Tights are built to weather the messiest days of shoulder season, so you can splash through those puddles with toddler-like abandon.
Unique, two-sided fabric with a brushed backside and water-repelling finish offers maximum warmth and protects from the elements. HeiQ Eco-Dry finish offers Fluorocarbon-free (PFC-free) and durable water and stain repellency to protect from the mess.
High-rise, wide waistband. Zippers at back cuffs make it easy to pull tights on and off.
Two large envelope back pockets allow for easy storage of gloves, hat or gels. A zippered pocket on the right hip securely fits most smartphones.

In Vermont, they say there are five seasons: spring, summer, fall, winter and mud – when thawing snowmelt turns dirt roads and trails into a soggy mess. While it may not have achieved “season status” everywhere, that wet, mushy period between deep winter and early spring is a fact of life for many runners. We spend it leaping over slush puddles in old trainers that we don’t mind getting dirty. It’s the physical in-between. It’s the thaw. Inspired by this gloriously messy season, we updated our training staples to handle some serious splashes.
