C2 Extreme Tight Review



Do you like to train in less then ideal temperatures?  Most people don’t, but why?  I have noticed that if I can be comfortable in the elements, than I am much more likely to go out for a run.  I have tried gear that helps me get through cold, wet, and windy weather and recently tested a good one from C2.

C2 is a company that was created by Jane Hayes.  She is from the New England area and decided she wanted to design clothes that she’d enjoy wearing while she was out on her bike.  She didn’t want to design just any old clothes, but ones that would help keep her out long after everyone else had headed inside.  Her core belief is that the weather shouldn’t keep you from doing what you love.  You just need clothes that can keep you warm and help you perform at your peak.  That is where the Extreme Tights come in.

The Extreme Tights are made with a durable, wind and abrasion-resistant outer layer and a warm, soft inner layer that is excellent at wicking.  They have discrete ankle zippers that make them easy to put on and take off.  They are made with Polartec Powerstretch double velour.  It also has a surface technology called hardface that adds protection in case you take a spill on the trails.  The interior also features flatlocking and open merrow construction so you have a smooth, flat interior that won’t cause chaffing or irritation.

I put these on for the first time on a run in the high 40’s.  Believe it or not, I actually was feeling warm from the tights.  They would work beautifully, even in sub-freezing temperatures. They fit like a glove and were extremely comfortable.  I never felt like they were a hindrance and barely even knew they were there.  I could even use them as lounge pants.  They retail for $149 on the C2 website. 

Pros:
Flatlock and open merrow construction eliminates chaffing
Wil keep you warm and dry, even in extremely cold temps
Ankle zips make it easy to put on and take off
Windproof and water resistant
Unisex sizing

Cons:
The $149 price tag is a little steep, but they are worth the money.
