The Performance Tights are also made with Polartec Technology which wicks away moisture. The tights are soft and warm. They are lined with a soft material which makes them warmer than regular running tights. In fact, during the fall days I tried them, they were too warm. I plan on using them when the downhill ski season starts as a base layer under my ski pants and expect that I will stay plenty warm in them. I will also be using them snowshoeing and winter hiking. They are perfect pants for warm weather activities. They move well with me.
FTC Disclosure: I received the Women’s Elite Half Zip and Performance Tights for free from C2 for consideration of a gear review via Deep Creek PR. My honest opinions based upon actual experience.
One of the things I love about living in Northern Utah is the chance to experience all four seasons. This means I need a variety of workout clothing to adapt to the weather and the different outdoor sports I love. It won’t be long before the snow starts falling and the ski resorts open. I’m ready for skiing and snowshoeing on the greatest snow on earth. C2 Apparel definitely makes it easy for me to stay warm during the fall and winter months.
I received the Elite Half Zip Top and the Performace Tights in size medium. They both fit perfect and are true to size.
The Elite Half Zip is made from Polartec power wool and is lightweight. It has amazing wicking benefits and keeps me dry on hikes and runs. The breathability is what I like most and has replaced my other long sleeve running shirts as my favorite. The caribbean blue color with the black stitching gives it a nice touch and looks great with the tights. I’m not embarrassed to run my errands after working out with the pairing. I also like that it is long and doesn’t creep up even when wearing my hiking pack.
The biggest reason I wouldn’t mind paying a little more for the C2 Apparel is that it is Made in the U.S.A. in Massachusetts. I love finding products made in the USA and it’s rare to find outdoor apparel still made in my home country. The clothes are well made with an attention to detail. I’m impressed that the company has made it their mission to get their customers outside. Thanks for making it easier for me to enjoy the cooler weather.
While I try to point out to my readers what I don’t like about a product or something I think could be improved on, there really is nothing about the C2 products I don’t like. Even though the pants are too warm for me for valley runs, they are perfect for the times in spend in the mountains on trail runs or winter sports.
