Weather The Storm
When it comes to cold-weather running tights, it feels like we have to compromise. Pick one: warmth or weight. The result is we spend winter somewhere between freezing and trudging. Our solution? Combine a full-stretch polyester blend with the natural properties of Merino wool to amplify insulation, dry time and odor-resistance, without weighing you down.

For The Cold
The secret to a great winter tight is counterintuitive. Most people's instinct is to double down on weight. But relying on a heavier knit misses the mark. The key to keeping warm in the winter is a fabric that creates loft, trapping the body’s heat before it’s released. To truly ensure protection from the elements a winter running tight needs to combine heft with loft, perform when wet from snow or sweat, insulate, breathe and dry quickly.
The NDO Tight utilizes a mix of natural and synthetic fibers in a double knit for enhanced warmth without compromising freedom of movement. The result is a running tight that refuses to compromise: yes it’s heavier, but it’s also warmer and more breathable.
Running on snow or through messy streets often means suffering the indignity of getting slush splashed up your legs. We added ribbed ankle cuffs, which hold the tight closer to the body and help keep the wet out.
Hip To Zip
Winter running often requires a few more supplies. Keep those keys, a credit card, subway pass and chapstick stowed in a zippered back pocket.
Plenty Of Stretch
The blend of polyester, Merino wool and elastane in these tights ensures plenty of freedom of movement. They'll require a tug to pull on, but don't budge when you're moving.
Kamilah Journet put the NDO Tights through their paces over a three day winter training camp at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. And once she pulled them on, she almost never took them off - happily putting them through her fartlek, a shakeout run and a gym session.
