    Loose fitting without being baggy enough to be annoying when running, water resistant and don't make me look like a chicken.

    I see RH makes a mans-length version too so I might try to track some down to try on unless anyone thinks these wouldn't be that good for running in.

    Oh, and IanR - thanks for the Saucony tights pointer, but just seeing the picture of them makes me shudder at what my wife and darling daughter would say

    And if you don't have a manly physique, you can always stuff a pair of socks down there. You were waiting for that weren't you?

    So that's what's making the ladies run away! Silly me thinking it was an inch of bare ankle

    I just stick a pair of minimal shorts over my tights for a) pockets, b) warmth, and c) modesty.

    Shorts over tights is a major fashion faux pas. Only footballers do stupid things like that.

    If you like the look of them and live in Sheffield, have you checked out Decathlon? http://www.decathlon.co.uk/EN/
    They appear very similar to some of their Kalenji gear.

    I'd not knock going in to Accelerate tho.
    Been in there today. Very friendly, offered a cuppa as I walked in When they recognised me as a returning customer and noticed the crocked ankle they even had their physio come over and have a quick exam.

    That little bit extra that'll get me back there in a couple of weeks to sort out some new shoes (along with some other bits )

    I took a quick look at the RH Advance tights in Up And Running in Sheffield on Saturday and they seem to be what I'm looking for. Couldn't be bothered to try a pair on as my wife was patently bored with being a running shop, but I'll go in again after Xmas and give it a try.

    Thanks for the Decathlon suggestion NoVice. I've had a lot of stuff from them, and didn't think about getting tights from them too. If I can find the time, I'll take a look.

    A pair of the OMM 0.75 capris arrived for me from Pete Bland's today, very good fit for the skinnier chap. They also seem to have quite a lot of compression for a garment not sold as a compression garment. I've started wearing capris for walking in under my jeans, sick of chafeing problems, they're difficult to 'get out of' when you need to spend a penny quickly though!
