Reviewed: warmlegs 300 denier fleece-lined thermal tights

Hosiery retailer Love Your Legs sent us a pair of the warmlegs 300 denier fleece-lined thermal tights to trial and review.



Love Your Legs recommended these tights for men as part of our recent series on Fight the freeze: recommend winter and thermal tights for men.

They said:

"These are full coverage, fleece lined tights. They are thick, soft and warm. They are a best seller and men will love them!."



Packaging

The packaging for these tights is very simple. The tights are folded and held in position by a card clasp.



Material and features


The warmlegs 300 denier fleece-lined thermal tights feel thick and very soft when you remove them from the packaging.

They are made from 95% Polyester and 5% Elastane.

Opaque coverage is full and dense as you would expect at 300 denier.

The outside of the tights is very smooth. The inside is lined with a warming fleece plush.

Seams are flat throughout.

The waistband is 3cm wide.

In the Large/Extra Large size that I tired, there is a 7cm wide comfort panel on both sides (front and back) of the brief/panty.





Fit and sizing


The warmlegs 300 denier fleece-lined thermal tights are available in three sizes:

  • Small/Medium
  • Medium/Large 
  • Large/Extra Large 


I tested a pair in the Large/Extra Large size.

As can be seen in the sizing information, the Large/Extra Large extends to 5'10" - that is my height. The fit was good but the tights were almost fully stretched (although not over-stretched). I think an XXL size extending to 6'0" would be have been slightly more comfortable.

The tights themselves feel wonderful when on - really warm and snug. It feels like your legs are completely insulated and warmed.

The interior fleece is very soft and that provides a great wearing experience.

The exterior is smooth and this makes them glide well under trousers.

The brief is quite deep and fits comfortably above the waist.

Colour range

The warmlegs 300 denier fleece-lined thermal tights are available in five colours: 

  • Black 
  • Plum
  • Navy
  • Grey
  • Brown
I trialled a pair in the Brown shade.

Price and availability

The warmlegs 300 denier fleece-lined thermal tights are priced £4.95.

Conclusion

The warmlegs 300 denier fleece-lined thermal tights are very good tights for cold weather. The price is very good for the level of quality.

They provide great insulation and the wearing experience is very pleasant indeed.

My only quibble is that the Large/Extra Large is a little on the small side. As suggested above an XXL size with more leg length would be a welcome additional sizing option.

Check out the rest of the warmlegs range - there are fleece lined leggings, knee highs and more.
