The Rab Skyline Tights are a versatile layer for all round mountain use legwear. They can be worn as running tights in cooler conditions or a baselayer under a tough softshell or hardshell when winter mountaineering. The main construction is a double knit stretch Nylon for breathability with a polyester inner for moisture management. The Skyline Tights also feature reinforced Matrix fabric panels on the seat and the knees and ankles as these are high wear areas. Both areas are DWR treated for added water repellency.
An elasticated drawcord adjustment keeps the Skyline Tights in place all day. There is a YKK zip pocket in the back of the waistband for valuables. The ankles have a zip open gusset with a locking zip and the Rab logo is reflective.
Not for me I'm afraid.
Ordered the medium as I'm typically around 31 but don't like a tight fit around the waist and my legs are pretty muscular, so although I often get small tops, I tend to move up a size in leggings etc. But the waist-band on these is very snug - weird, as they've also provided a drawstring (to make it even tighter!).
The material isn't soft touch but it's not rough either; the little rear pocket is good for cash or cards; the ankle zips are very clever as it keeps the tights figure-hugging in the lower-leg.
For reference, the weight of the mediums supplied was 257g (without the cardboard tag!)
These tights/leggings/bottoms are fabulous, and I've got everything!
I've also never known such exemplary customer service.
