Compression Distance Run Tights
I love these running tights. Despite being expensive, they are worth it. They are comfortable and you hardly know they're there. Best bottom half for running ive found. Just did my first half marathon (the unofficial cancelled one!) in them and tho it was muggy they were fab. And I did a good time and hardly any aches etc afterwards. Thoroughly recommend them. Wish there were knee length shorts too. No bits to dig in and they keep undies and everything else in place!! Flattering too. More colours and lengths required!

Not for me
Bought these to replace my old SB compression leggings that I've had for 2 yrs, have 3 pairs of the old type ( they were fantastic).
In this new type the fabric is completely different and I find them far too warm. Shame because I love the pattern and fit.
Please SB bring back your old type ( the plain black ones) perhaps with a pattern this time.

I got these for Rat Race dirty weekend which is a 20 miles assault course and they were fab, dry really quickly and dint get any cramps or stiffness going around which was fab!! Also surprised by how tough they were considering the material is bout like tights material I thought they might ladder but they have washed to look brand new. I'm also quite tall and they fit perfectly!

Distance Run Tights
These are excellent; really comfortable and supportive.
I've done two long distance runs in them (20 miles) and will wear them for the marathon next month.
They look good too! Would recommend.

look great while you sweat
Love these pants. The other day without thinking, I put a hair dryer to close to my favorite running pants. My mouth fell open as I watched my pants melt before my eyes. It was also a pair from Sweaty Betty in this same fabric with the best rainbow racing stripes on them from a year ago. SO SAD! I was happy that when these arrived that they were the same awesome fabric. These pants are comfortable along with sucking you in and smoothing everything out. No dimples showing or jiggling going on. The waist band smooths you out instead of cutting in and pushing flesh up and over. My only disappointment would be the color of the stripes. Not all girls want pink and purple stripes. What about green and yellow. I never see good greens on women's running clothes.

Squeezed to death!
Horrible compression tights that were way too tight. I've had a different 'running' brand that were fabulous. These just squeezed the life out of me!! Obviously they were returned.

Great fit apart from the length , but hey I'm only 4ft 10in. Nothing a pair of scissors can't rectify.
Very comfortable and easy to wear

Makes a noticable difference
Usually after running anything over 5K, my legs would ache for a day or two (long term condition), but now I find that I can for a short run the day after. The compression has also provided more support for my hip and knee joints, so I can run completely pain free :)

Great compression tight
I found these to be very comfortable.
I also bought another brand of compression running bottoms ( from a different supplier) , they were more like lycra capris and ripped the first time i wore them! So I was a bit sceptical whether these would be the same. But happy to report they are great. They are definitely more like tights in appearance than I am used too but I have found them to be excellent.

Great for long distance runs
I'm currently running long distances in marathon training and these were very comfortable - didn't ride up or chafe over 18 miles plus.
