LEANWEIGHT 210g

The Flash Winter Tights use a combination of fabrics to provide mapped insulation and venting for use in cold conditions. A lightweight polyester stretch fleece is used on the front of the thighs and lower legs, which are most exposed to the elements. The lighter Flash fabric is used on the other panels of the tights to provide venting and a free range of movement whilst the women’s specific fit provides comfort even on the longest runs. These 210g full-length tights are perfect for winter ascents and longer days in the hills.

THERMAL PANELLING

Our insulating Meridian fabric provides warmth and stretch and has been used across the thigh and lower leg. This provides protection and warmth from the elements whilst the lighter Flash fabric allows for venting. This combination of fabrics is ideal for below zero running with variable output thorughout the day.

MADE FOR WINTER

The thermal properties of the fabric provides warmth to key areas even when wet. Designed for running above the snow line, the Flash Winter Tights will allows you to take on longer routes in freezing conditions.

STASH POCKET

The Flash Winter Tight features a stash pocket on the outside of each thigh. This is ideal for maps compass or bars which you need easy access to.

Shorts or Leggings?

Some runners will only wear a full length legging when there is a foot of snow on the ground and a howling gale. Some will even hold out then, opting instead for chapped legs and snow-burnt shins! What to wear whilst running is very personal choice but OMM offers a range of Legwear to cover (get it!) a wide range of options. For fast and light racing, check out the Speed Short, a classic split short made for going fast. Or for those in-between days go for the Flash 0.75, a 3/4 length tight that will see most through winter. When snow is on the ground it is a good idea to protect your shins, the Flash 1.0 will do just that. For multi-day adventures or wearing over a legging, the versatility of the PaceLite Short is a good option too. 

What about waterproofs?

 You will find our waterproof Legwear both here and over on the Outer Layer Page. So if you’re looking for a full waterproof outfit to satisfy kit list needs, head over there. If you’re just looking for stuff that covers your pins, you’ll find it here.

Leg length and fit

 You can find our Size Guide via the link on each product page, this includes measurement ranges for each size. You can also find our Fit Guide there too. Our performances fabrics usually work best close to the skin and we make our Legwear in a relatively close fit to reduces drag and bulk whilst moving quickly in the mountains. Our leg lengths also reflect this; often shorter than traditional hiking or streetwear, this is to keep fabric out of the way of running feet. In the case of waterproofs, it is less essential to create a seal with your footwear, as with hiking overtrousers,  since you’re likely to be plunging into rivers and bogs and most running footwear isn’t waterproof. Some of our Legwear is a Unisex Fit, in which case it is often best to go down a size for Women.

Do we use Lycra?

Yes, a bit. We use Lycra in our Flash range of tights but not much. We could make them super stretchy, just like those fashionable high street leggings but we don’t for a reason. Lycra is super stretchy, which is great, but other than that it doesn’t have many other properties that a mountain runner might look for in a piece of Legwear. It is not very thermally insulating, very quick drying or wicking and can lead to quite a cool feeling against the skin; not what you want on a rain-soaked summit. So we keep the Lycra content to minimum and instead use clever panelling of the fabrics, orientating them to optimise the direction of stretch throughout the running motion; clever stuff!
