C2 Performance Tights Review
October 24, 2016
The C2 Performance Tights were made for the days when others decide to stay home. Constructed from a thicker material these tights can stand alone or be layered underneath heavier layers when the temperature really drops.
Staying comfortable in the outdoors isn’t always easy. Temperatures change dramatically and more than one season per day can be common depending on where you live. Proper layering is essential and layering starts at the base. A good pair of tights can make your time in the woods much more enjoyable. The C2 Performance Tights are a great lower base layer for when it gets cold.
Yoga pants are great for around town but a thicker pair of tights are essential for activities like snowshoeing. A thick base layer can be worn as a standalone bottom layer when you are working hard moving uphill – wicking and venting moisture to keep you dry. When you stop and layer up they insulate to keep you warm. They can even be layered under fly fishing waders to stretch that fishing season just a little bit longer.
One of the best features about the C2 Performance Tights are their “compressibility”. One general drawback from thicker base layers is that they can be hard to tuck into ski boots. Polartec Power Stretch fabric, with its ability to recover its original shape, compresses easily to fit into a boot and even when tucked in still has enough stretch for easy movement. Other small touches, like flatlock stitching, help keep you comfortable no matter how you move.
The C2 Performance Tights are a great pair of tights for anyone who wants something to keep them warm during cold nights spent in a tent and high output activities.
