These tights are everything I wanted.
Not because of the compression (although I buy that that’s all great, but no idea how I would verify that it’s better than without) but because I haven’t found a pair of running pants that have
* pockets (one for a phone, a tiny one with a zip for keys, and another tiny one which might fit a credit card)
* a waist string you can tie so they don’t fall when running. Every other pair I bought falls, no matter how tight they seem.
They also dry within a day of washing with cold water which is somewhat impressive and aren’t overly hot.
They are pricey but I wasted more money not having them, shopping around for right pants with pockets only to have to constantly pull them up on my runs.
