Fozzy, I find that Adidas come long in the leg. I need to turn up the Adidas tights that I have.

Interesting, the Adidas ones I have are pretty short, although quite good fitting around the waist...

Don't like tracksters, unfortunately - I find the stirrups annoying, and again they look like they could flap about your legs, which I find very annoying.

Plus I have the bum necessary to wear tights and no other legal time to wear such flattering garments to show it off! ;-)

Note that this last statement may well be false...

I had adidas before my Nike ones; they were short.

I am quite tall and skinny and I have Craft tghts that seem quite good value. If you snag them, put some clear nail varnish around the snag and it glues the edges together, and stops them fraying

I'm a tall lady (5' 11'') with 34 inside leg and narrow waist and find the men's Nike tights are the longest and most comfortable on me. Good back zip pockets too for keys etc. I'm still using my first pair of Nike men's tights - they've lasted years. Karrimor are also pretty long, but looser - sports direct has a sale of men's running tights on at the moment and Karrimor are going for less than a tenner: sportsdirect.com and Nike specifically from £11.99: sportsdirect.com Happy shopping! :-)

Another long legged (36" inside leg) Fetchie here :-)

Years ago I bought some Adidas tights which are really long, but I recently bought a pair and they are too short in the leg. I find that Nike tights are too short, Gore tights are just about long enough and Under Armour tights are more than long enough but tend to be more expensive.

SoaPM - where do you get Craft kit from? On the rare occasion I've seen it in online places, it's tended to be quite expensive unfortunately.

I got it from an online shop either sweatshop or wiggle, or somehing like that. Nowhere unusual. And I got them cos they were cheap maybe they were reduced?

Been having a look around and the Craft stuff is not as expensive as I remember, although selection seems to be limited to a few select retailers...

They also seem to be a bit longer than others, going from the sizings on wiggle. Just need to find somewhere relatively local that stocks them, so that I could try some on before buying.

Got something to say?
