Performance Tights Power Stretch®

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 6 customer ratings
(6 customer reviews)


Rainy (or any wet weather) is no match for the performance tight. Polartec technology wicks away moisture so that drizzle won’t dampen your spirits or give you a chill. The soft, stretchy fabric looks good on everyone. And don’t put them away when the weather dips. They’re a perfect base layer to regulate your core temp.

Made in Massachusetts, USA


Textile:Polartec® Power Stretch® single velour

  • also used in performance crops, undertop, base top, and winter bra lining.
  • content: 49% Poly, 38% Nylon, 13% Spandex
  • strengths: insulation, abrasion resistance, moisture transfer, wind resistance, light weight and water shedding
  • This textile was developed to maximize the garment’s range of motion. The majority of elastic base materials can stretch during movement, but lack the tensile strength to recover their original shape and eventually become permanently damaged. By utilizing elastic fibers with enhanced resilience in our stretch construction we made a performance-fit base fabric that can handle the pressure of demanding physical activities.

Construction techniques:

  • Flatlock
  • Overlock
  • Top Stitch finishing

Caring for your c2

Although it’s totally fine to wash and dry your c2 with your other active wear, we have found a few care details to be helpful in keeping it looking good for as long as possible:

1. Avoid washing c2 with cotton or other lint shedding materials
2. It’s best to wash synthetics with other synthetics
3. c2 air dries quickly, so save a dime and the environment and let it dry naturally
4. Turn your c2 inside out before washing or drying to protect the outside from zippers and velcro

This might sound crazy, but I’ve been wearing these all summer. I ride my bike a short distance to go to the pool in the morning, and the only thing I can even consider pulling on my legs at that early hour is a pair of C2 Tights.

When I get done with swimming they feel amazing. When I get back home, which is incidentally my office, I don’t want to take them off – so I don’t. I wear them all day because I can!

I especially love the new material with the smooth exterior because it does not pick up pet fur like the fleece has a tendency to do.

I got C2 tights last year for fall biking. Turned out they were great for fall hiking too!. And skiing and snowshoeing. Then I discovered what they are really PERFECT for: hanging out wear ! I am really happy to be unpacking the winter clothes again and moving into the C2 season again.

It’s shoulder season in the Wasatch and today was sloppy. It’s the worst kind of day; not enough snow to ski up high, too much slush to rollerski down low, but really important to stick with this training plan. I’m no runner, but that’s the last card in my hand to play on a day like this.

I went to my basket of unfolded laundry and rooted through the octopus of black tight-like items. Then I saw the little yellow circle and I pulled. Haven’t seen these Performance Tights since spring, but they made me slightly hopeful that today’s necessary evil would be, well, less evil.

Leaving the house I wondered for a moment if they were the best choice; the snow was more like soft, slow rain. Wet and sloppy. Would the smooth outside of the Polartec repel the damp enough? Would the fuzzy inside insulate me against the first freezing temperatures of the year?

The answer is yes. A firm yes. And with two kids under 3 I was guaranteed to return to a situation where I was unable to change right away. Guess what? That was fine too.

Awesome single layer mucky day running and then feeding a baby while playing with a toddler tight.

Thanks so much, Jen!

By far the best tights I’ve ever owned. I love running in these tights. They keep my legs warm, but not overheated. There’s no bulky feeling.

I wore these for snowshoeing and running last winter – I tend to wear tights for running only when it’s VERY cold, and these were perfect for keeping me warm but not overheating. And they wick really well – I didn’t get soaked while snowshoeing in a blizzard. I also use them for snowboarding under ski pants. The fabric is really nice – doesn’t get stretched out and has a comfortable feel. Excellent product – can’t wait to try out the tank top!

I am an everyday, no matter the weather, gotta get outside woman! I live in the Tahoe Reno area and so weather can be a tester of one’s mettle on many a winter day. These are the best running tights I have ever worn. they fit perfectly (I am 5’2″ and 107lbs and have a size XS and it is like they were made custom for me!). I have run as cold as -2F and up to 50F, in rain and snow and been super comfy. Love the fabric! They have a nice gussett too so great for biking but no chafing or hot spots. LOVE that they are made in the USA with fabrics from the USA by a woman who is out there playing in the weather. Product of the year! I need another pair! 10 stars!
