Baselayer... Yes. Running tights... No.
on 30 November 2014
This is by no means a compression garment. The fabric is very thin and very loose. I bought a size S (my usual) and a size M just in case. The S is too "revealing" to go out of the house with (the author of this review is not new to running in tights mind you...). The M is less so but still not up to par. On the other hand, it could serve (and it does to me) as a great base layer. Thin base layers are hard to come by and this is perfect in this sense. So you might want to consider using this for winter hiking or just as a pair of breathable pajams.
Hope this helps...
