The very best summer season operating tights and capris


Not a fan of shorts? We hear you. Sometimes all you need to run in summer is good, breathable tights or capri pants. Here are some of our favorites …

FLANCI Capri leggings | £ 35.50 each
Tester: Sarah

Flanci is a popular brand for high-quality, light-colored workout clothes. These leggings are comfortable and they stayed in place when I ran or exercised, and were comfortable when I wore them all day. They have a high waist, flat seams, and a deep thigh pocket for phones and accessories. There is also a zip pocket on the back and a detachable toggle waistband. If you want to be seen this is the capris for you. The fantastic bright colors will cheer up any run, and the size is included too.

Available in sizes XS-XXXL

BADASS MOTHER RUNNER Activewear Leggings | £ 28
Tester: Sue

Fabulous leggings that get quality, functionality and price under control. They're extremely comfortable with a high waistband and will stay in place whatever you do in them. With moisture wicking and four-way stretch, they are the most comfortable leggings I've ever worn. They are rated for 7/8 length but to me they were full length and sat comfortably on my ankle. The large pocket on the back is a bonus for carrying your phone or keys. They're quick to wash and dry for quick turnaround. They are available in various bright colors. So don't blame us if you have more than one pair in your cart.

Available in sizes 6-20

SKECHERS Apparel Limitless HW Midcalf Legging | £ 44
Tester: Geri

These have to be the most comfortable training leggings I've ever worn. Such a smooth material and the higher waistband are always a winner for me. The fit is perfect, they don't move, they have breathable material, good elasticity and two side pockets for one or two phones, keys and cards. From exercising to making pottery around the house, these leggings will become your new best friend. Good price, good size options, and a good fit.

Available in sizes XS-XXL

ASICS Seamless Tight | £ 58
Tester: Esther

These are ridiculously soft and nice to wear. The super high waistband is actually not a ribbon; It is more of a comfortable, massive pair of pants. These seamlessly designed tights are stretchy, soft and giving – and so comfortable. They are designed for running and are better suited for indoor training because there are no pockets or drawstrings. I tried a pair that was taller than me and it fitted perfectly. So this is worth considering. But I cannot overdo this comfort.

Available in sizes XS-XL

ASICS Color Block cut short | £ 64
Tester: Esther

Made of beautiful, skin-tight, thick and soft fabric, these garments are part of the new season's Sakura collection, which features some of the most beautiful pieces of clothing from Asics in recent years. The fit is just right with a nice high waist and the length hits just past mid-calf if you are on the long side like me. The color blocking design is very nice too. There is a small key / card pocket on the back, which is useful, but I would have liked a thigh pocket as well. These don't have a drawstring either: I don't think if leggings are 7/8 or shorter it isn't necessary (I realize this sounds strange), but if these hit you at your ankle, you may find that they are one pull down a bit. Otherwise solid, good-looking tights.

Available in sizes XS-XL
