FALKE LONG TIGHTS

price: £80
weight: 322g

Made out of thick and stretchy nylon/elastane, these are quite heavy compared to others on test, but they keep you wonderfully comfortable by working with your body’s movement, using Falke’s Body Mapping principle. This moves sweat away from the body without cooling it down. The waistband is narrow but a draw-cord helps keep them up. A small back pocket holds gels. For keys, there’s a separate mini pocket. 

verdict

These are heavy, despite no thermal lining. Nice option for cold dry days though.
