A guide to buy the perfect running pants
There’s nothing quite as invigorating as running in the park and getting some fresh air into one’s system. This is one form of exercise that I really enjoy. Nonetheless, a pair of running pants that chafes or is unable to wick away the sweat really puts me off. If you are an avid athlete or want to begin running, here’s a guide to help you choose a pair of women’s running pants.
Running pants can be segregated into two types: loose fitting running pants and running tights. Both types of pants have their advantages and disadvantages. Loose pants are very comfortable and have a relaxed fit. Nevertheless, they tend to slow you down, so it is not ideal for those who love sprinting in full speed. Tights are close-fitting and enable you to achieve greater acceleration, but they tend to highlight each curve of your figure. This may not find favor with those who have a poor body image. Women’s running tights are available in full length and in the form of capris. Some pants such as the Women’s Brooks Vapor Dry Pants are designed to be a mix between loose pants and tights. They are fitting enough to flatter your figure and loose enough not to show every contour of your body.
Take into consideration the weather conditions while purchasing your pants. If it is going to be very cold at the time of your run, you should opt for running pants that is made from a synthetic material, such as a blend of polyester and Lycra. You could also try layering by putting on a pair of pants over tights. Ensure that the pants that you buy have the capacity to wick away the moisture from your body while retaining the heat. Wear light-colored clothes as these reflect the sunlight from the skin.
With these guidelines, you should be able to buy a pair of running pants that are comfy and suit your preferences.
