Smartwool PhD Wind Tight £96
255g (M) www.smartwool.com
These tights feature a clever weave of ethically sourced merino wool, nylon and elastane. The fabric sits against the skin, providing soft, wicking, natural antimicrobial, warmth whilst the more protective and quicker-drying synthetic fibres are on the outside. A polyester windproof layer is sewn onto the front of the thighs making these brilliant in cold, windy conditions. The tights feature reflective detail, a zipped rear pocket, side pocket and calf zips.
Verdict Perfect tights for cold, windy days in the mountains.
