    Go for the montane featherlite pants. Pertex so keeps you warm and fairly dry. They don't look stupid and they pack up very small. Absolute winner!

    Running Bear own brand gloves are also pretty good if, like me, you tend to suffer from cold hands in the winter and, of course, Gladiators are probably the best fell running shoes around .

    Thanks Andy, they look very interesting, but I would prefer something that doesn't rustle so that I can sneak up on the grouse.

    Not exactly:

    Tights £13.04
    p&p £ 2.50
    vat £ 2.33

    Total £ 17.88

    But you are 100% right about Gladiators though, and the woolly socks are good too.

    I have the Ron Hill Advance 3/4 Pant, they're great as aren't next to the skin, have articulated knees and are good for colder weather. And at the risk of setting off an avalanche of abuse, they also have an i-Pod pocket

    The thing about tights that are 3/4 length on normal people is that they are 7/8 length on the vertically challenged so the ladies tend to run away anyway

    You're really missing the point about tights aren't you? They're supposed to hug your manly physique.
