I Just Bought Running Tights (Read 932 times)

    I'm back to running after a 20 year layoff. I'm amazed of all the changes in the past two decades. It's getting colder & I just bought my first pair of running tights. Question. What do you wear under them? I'm a guy. My running shorts have a sling for the fellas. Do you go commando? Is there some kind of space-age sweat wicking jock that's out there?

    The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.

      I'm a gal and I still wear my undies. But my hubby goes commando in his biking shorts (they have that padded chamois thingy). k

        I use Nike compression shorts under tights. The combo will raise the tone of your voice a couple of octaves, but they won't bounce around! Smile
          and...umm...when you post your picture...umm...no tights please!! Shocked
            Thanks for the info. Don't worry, no pictures of men in tights. Although I have threatened my daughter that I'll be wearing my running tights to her next parent/teacher conference.

              Now *THIS* is funny. And sums up my thoughts perfectly: (Stolen from Pete's blog ... hope you don't mind, man!)
              Running tights... The pros. I need to stay warm on a run. There's fabulous space-age clothing being made out of amazing fabric. I'm learning to embrace the new running technology of the past twenty years. The cons. I don't wear tights. Errol Flynn wore tights. Baryshnikov wore tights..
              Yup. It's gonna have to be pretty cold before I wear tights. It might help if they'd give them a better name. Tongue

                Cue the music please... We're men. We're men in tights (tight tights!)... From "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" (a Mel Brooks film, of course)

                  Mel Brooks is a comic GOD! "Blazing Saddles" is hands-down the funniest movie EVER! RIP, Lili VonSchtupp. k

                    I'm a gal, and I go commando under my tights. Hope you're able to find some tights that do the trick for ya. I love my new UA ones. Lisa

                      I go commando regardless. The only time I wear anything underneath is for long runs in the heat. UnderArmour makes boxer briefs that work well for that sort of thing.

                        Under Armour sells briefs that go under tights.
