Reviewed: Ufash 100 Denier Opaque Tights

Ufash are a new range of unisex tights from Austria. I have already reviewed the Lucy & Luca 40 denier matt semi-opaque tights and the Frida & Fred 20 denier semi-matt tights.

Today I am reviewing the Zara & Zac 100 denier opaque tights.



Materials and features

According to the packaging, these are 'semi-matt, opaque unisex microfibre tights' made from 95% Polyamide and 5% Elastane. The tights come in a transparent, resealable storage bag.

The tights have conventional seams and there is very slight demarcation in the material between the legs and the brief, but this is really not visible. The 2cm waistband is rather narrow but not uncomfortable.

Fit and sizing

The tights come in three sizes: Small, Medium and Large (a gusset) and XL which has a rear comfort panel.

I tested the XL size and the fit was really excellent. The brief had plenty of room and was very comfortable.

Colour range

These tights are available in Black only.

Price and availability

These tights cost €11.95. At the moment they are available from Amazon Germany. However, Ufash have informed me that they will shortly be available in the UK from a major retailer of men's tights.

Conclusion

I found the fit of these tights to be excellent. They are very comfortable indeed and glide well under jeans or trousers. I wore them on a cool, windy day and they provided warmth as well as the feeling of a degree of leg support.

  1. How opaque are they? Can you see through them at all? And are they shiny? Thanks.

  2. They are very opaque and you really can't see through them at all. I would say that they have a slight sheen - they are more matt than shiny.

  5. It's kind of surprising that UFash does not have a size chart on their website. At least I was able to find one posted on the Amazon.de listing.

    Anyway, on Amazon there were two separate reviews that were not very flattering. They both complained of durability, that they either snagged or seams came undone in not much time. Also, one person complained that the denier appearance is more like 60-80, not 100.

    How have these held up for you?

  6. Thanks for your comments Seamless. I found the 100 denier Ufash tights to be excellent but haven't given them too many wears yet - I am waiting for the weather to turn much colder.
