    they're difficult to 'get out of' when you need to spend a penny quickly though!
    I find this a question of motivation. I was out for a few hours Monday and had a bit of an upset stomach. Nature called and she called with force. Got out of 'em pretty quick and no mistaking.

    Finally found a pair of tights that fit me - inside leg 29", 30" waist - and have no zips: OMM Flash 1.0. I find zips either come undone when you do not want them to, or seize because of all the dirt. Medium 2XUs are zipless and also fit me but do not provide warmth.

    Throw out ALL your saviles. All you need are the current vogue for longish shorts and compression socks. This just leaves your knees in the breeze.

    Just a quick heads up on a recent discovery. New Balance's Impact Tights are very well fitting for those of us with skinny legs, for whom most tights just look like tracksters. To the best of my knowledge these are the best fitting ones on the market, but not cheap at 50 quid.

    RAB Polartec tights are good for those colder runs - no bagginess, no zips, lovely and warm. If it is really cold they go brilliantly under waterproof trousers. Trying them on in the shop it was a challenge to take them off they felt so good.

    And now Savilles are being rehabilitated. According to my youngest daughter, they look cool, especially if they have the ankle stirrups!! AAArrrgggghhhhh!!!!!!

    A quick translation of the new skins range:

    System 1- cheap
    System 3- A400
    System 5- unnecessarily expensive

    They now have a long option which are about 2" longer than normal. Unless you have thin legs you may find the system 5 quite difficult to get into aswell.

    Wow, that brings back some memories. My OMM Flash tights came apart at a seam in the groin that was too complex to repair. The RAB Polartecs are still going strong - on very cold days I wear them over my 2XU tights and under my OMM Kamleika pants.
