TOP 9 WOMEN'S RUNNING TIGHTS

ICYMI: Fall is here and winter is coming, which means it’s time to swap out those summer running shorts for some warmer winter threads. But with so many different tights and legging options, deciding what to wear can be exhausting before you even step outside.

We asked our expert team of lady runners what they wear to stay comfortable (and look good!) running in the winter. When the temperature dips, these options have you covered in the cold.
 

NIKE POWER EPIC LUX RUNNING TIGHTS ($95)

Nike Power Epic Lux Running Tights

Voted overall best running tights for women, this staff favorite features a wide elastic waistband that hits right below your natural waist for a flattering, functional fit. Compression feels super supportive and they don’t stretch out, even after washing multiple times. Pro tip: get a pair in every color, they will not disappoint!
 

NIKE POWER EPIC RUN FLASH RUNNING TIGHTS ($80)

Nike Power Epic Run Flash Running Tights

Reflective detailing in this full-length design keeps you covered but visible during colder, darker months. Plus, Nike Power fabric has just the right amount of stretch and support so these leggings won’t slide down during your run. #winning
 

SAUCONY BULLET CROP LEGGING ($72)

Saucony Bullet Crop Legging

Perfect for milder temps, these crop leggings hit right above the ankle and are super comfortable and supportive. The smooth PowerLuxe fabric fits like a second skin and there are even a few extra pockets to store your stuff on the run.
 

BROOKS GREENLIGHT TIGHT ($80)

Brooks Greenlight Tight

If you’re a distance runner looking for bottoms that will stay in place on long runs, these are perfect! They fit snug when you first put them on, but they mold to your body almost immediately. Warm enough for temps in the 20-40s, these tights are definitely a must-have for running in the winter.
 

2XU HYPNOTIK MID-RISE COMPRESSION TIGHT ($89.95)

2XU Hyoptik Mid-Rise Compression Tight

These wide waistband compression tights can be worn on their own or as a base layer for any activity or post exercise recovery to activate muscles faster pre-exercise, oxygenate the blood for faster recovery and reduced long-term overuse injuries. Not only are they great for running, but also to wear when traveling on planes, long car rides, days at the office – you name it! They come at a higher price point but are worth every penny!
