Women's legging/tights recommendation

I found a pair of women's leggings/tights that are very snag resistant. Spent all day at the gunks in them, hearing them catch on the rock, but inspected them today and they are completely free of snags/pills. They come in high-rise, different leg lengths, too.

The brand is a bit surprising, but whatever. Miniscule logo.

I'm sharing because they're great and on sale now if you buy with a sports bra (both for $55).…;CatalogueType=OLS&colorCode=093

I'd love to hear anyone else's recommendation too.

Hi Mel, thanks for the recommendation. I showed this to my wife (also a climber, not an MP member) and she bought them. Wore them out this weekend for some climbing and camping and LOVED them. She even got them caught on a barb while going over barbed wire and they did not rip.

The link you posted doesn't work. Do you know the name of the style you bought or have any other information that would be helpful to find these pants? That would be greatly appreciated!

Here are my recommendations. Shop them on sale, as they are pricier:

Athleta (what I normally wear)
Title 9 Sports (also good)

Ack - sorry the link died (and led to a bra clad person). Here's a new link and the product name is Victorias secret knockout sport high rise tight…;CatalogueType=OLS

I'm so glad my recommendation worked out for someone! Barbed wire - wow

I like title nine and athleta, too, always keeping an eye out for sales. Last seasons long black tights with grey stripe down side $36 in the again available for 80ish.

Inseam length choice on these is pretty sweet though.

Thanks for the share! I didn't know they were doing sportswear now. Although I have to admit their strappy sports bra doesn't seem super functional - but my husband pointed out that I could clip gear to it - perfect!…;CatalogueType=OLS

Lol, that would be a sight to see. Maybe you can get VS sponsorship! What tights lack in pockets, you can make up for with that strappy business up top. :)

I do like tights for comfort and mobility. My sons and their teammates wear under armour leggings under their shorts for practices and games in the cold, and sometimes I copy the look, wearing a pair of soft shorts over my leggings when I want additional coverage w/o knee constraint.

Heads up that there's a promo up again: Buy a sports bra (some are as low as $15) and get a pair of leggings for $30.

I don't work for VS, just was impressed by the quality of the knockout tights, and the high waist option which is great under a harness.

Fjallraven Trekking Tight has pockets, reinforced knee and butt for abrasion resistance on rock.

Come in full length and calf length for women. Men's version has a looser pant-like crotch…………;sns=em

Those look like amazing pants. Thanks for sharing!

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
