Women's UA ColdGear® Compression Leggings
Hi Sue how are you?
I am good, thanks.
Emily
The leggings will have more of a mate finish & tights will be shinier
Ok that is the only difference? Is one better than the other in cold?
Emily
Do you have 2 specific ones you are deciding between?
Yes. the compression leggings and compression tights..
both are 49.99
Emily
Does the compression tight have more to the name? We don't have one that is just tight
Women's ColdGear Frosty Compression Tights
Emily
Ok and the regular coldgear tights?
yes
Actually coldgear compression leggings
Emily
The Frosty is best suited for very cold conditions. I wore mine for runs down to 1 degrees on the lake. The CG compression tight legging is great for sports below freezing down but may need a layer in the teens
Ok so the tights can be worn alone?
Emily
I wore mine alone, What will you be using them for?
Running in the winter.
Emily
Oh perfect. I would get the frosty for sure'
Just a warning, they are a but tight in the ankle
Great thanks so much for your help!! It is hard trying to determine what to buy
So do you go up a size? or just your normal/
Emily
No you will want your normal size, but I had to pull mine down over my foot
Ok do these come in fitted? Or just compression?
Are you there? Or did I lose you?
Emily
Yes I am here sorry
Oh ok..
Emily
I am on another chat too & was searching
Ok that is fine
Emily
They only come in compression & they are not that tight, only the ankle for some reason
Ok great. Thanks!!! Can you recommend a good shirt also?
Cold Gear shirt
Emily
Let me see if we have the one I use
Ok thank you
Emily
we don't have my exact one, but this is close
Thank you so much for your help!
Emily
Or I would layer this with a regular waffle
What is a waffle?
thank you
Emily
