Moving Comfort Endurance Tight : Versatile, Breathable

The Moving Comfort Endurance Tight is a great bottom layer for pretty much any aerobic activity that generates body heat. They expertly manage moisture and move seamlessly with my body so I can focus on the long haul, aka, my workout.

The Endurance Tight has a classic, form-fitting design that hugs curves and doesn't leave extra fabric to chafe or bunch (think Cat Woman). I wore mine during several cardio and weight-lifting workouts that involved a lot of different movements - squatting, jumping, lunging (and a lot of sweating). They allowed for unrestricted motion, and the flat, wide waistband made my belly nice and flat while also preventing the tight from slipping down.  

The fabric was supportive and durable without sacrificing any breathability, and all the seams were flat. The Endurance Tight stayed dry enough during my workouts that I could step outside into the still-cold Montana air wearing just a parka over my top layers and didn't freeze on the drive home.

I was so impressed with the breathability of the Endurance Tight that I wore it nordic skiing on several occasions in 20 to 30 degree temperatures. Once I got going on the skate track, there was a big contrast between my body temperature and the outside cold, but my legs stayed at a very comfortable temperature - not too hot or cold. Once again, the tight moved beautifully with my legs as I skated side to side.

I was curious to see how the Endurance Tight would perform in warm temperatures, and I had an opportunity to try them on a recent trip to New Orleans. It's hard to find places to run in downtown New Orleans, but I really wanted to try out the tights and get some exercise on one sunny, beautiful, 75-degree day. So, I went for a run right next to the streetcar tracks. I was glad for the reflective seams on the lower part of the tight legs, which made me more noticeable to urban traffic, and for the little internal pocket that was just the right size to hold my hotel room key card. It was warm enough out that I could just as easily have worn shorts, but I had no regrets. Four miles later, I was still comfortably dry and soaking in the sunshine...

The Moving Comfort Endurance Tight is available for women in Black in sizes S to XL. I found them to be true to size, form-fitting, and an average length. They can also double as an under layer for cold weather activities.

Bottom Line: High-performance workout tight that's as versatile as my outdoor pursuits. --L.B. (March '11)
