sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

Groundwork Knit fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

The best half tights

Ive been keeping my eye on these half tights for a couple years since they first came out, but have hesitated because the first iteration came at a 9" length. I was hoping for a shorter inseam given the length of my thighs, and the 8" length is perfect. They hold items very well (tons of gels, 500mL soft flasks, and a phone in the back pocket) and don't sag when the draw cord is pulled appropriately. I have a larger behind/larger thighs and struggle to find tights or shorts that fit comfortably, but I am happy to say these fit amazing. Highly recommend!

Smooth and sleek

These short tights fit just right. No issues bunching or riding up like I have with some others. The seams and the stitching are good, no chafing issues so far. And just the right amount of pockets and storage in case I need to haul anything on my run

My New Go-to Running Shorts

The fit is perfect. I’m 6’1”, athletic build, 34” waist, and size large is perfect. Can’t ask for more pockets, holds phone w/o movement. Works great with or without underwear. Only change I’d make is the elastic drawstring (too stretchy, but still functions) and more colors. Just ordered my 2nd pair after 2 runs in first pair.

Flexible pocket setup. Perfect length. I have several pairs. Size is right if you follow the size chart.

The best half tight I’ve found

This has been a very welcome addition to the gear bag, and has become my go-to long run or trail run short. Snug fit but not tight around legs or seams, doesn't ride up, stays up on the waist, thick enough for 50 degrees but breathable enough for AZ Summers. Literally couldn’t ask for more pocket space.. fit 2 18oz water bottles, my phone, keys, sunglasses, 6 nutrition gels, and my headphones case for my recent 20mi trail run. Waist band strings are extra stretchy but it’s a non-issue, would rather this than too rigid. Extremely satisfied with these!!

Awesome running tights

I've been a runner for 46 years. I've tried just about every brand of running short and tights in existence. I've never worn a more comfortable, more functional running short/tight than this one. Bring on more colors! I'll buy them!

The. Best. Half Tights. Period

The only thing that annoys me is that it took me this long to try these half tights. Absolutely the best I’ve ever worn and I’ve worn them all! Had to get three pairs just in case they discontinue them at some point.
All the pockets are spot on and perfectly positioned. Zero bounce no matter what you put in them. I’d like to find an issue with them but can’t find one. 6 stars out of 5!
