Running tights actually designed for men....?

Firstly, I'm a very new runner having been bitten by the running bug 6 months ago when I quit my 40 Marlboro Reds a day habit. I'm enjoying the benefits,but do suffer from leg cramps and pains when out. I decided to give a pair of tights a go and I really feel the benefit of my current 3/4 Nike tights, but I'm looking for some full length ones now and am faced with a problem which I can find no answer for.

 

There's no way of asking this without being somewhat graphic, but why does it seem that most men's tights are not actually designed for men at all?? If they are, then they are designed for men with a Ken doll proportioned lower-region. They either have a middle seam to create some God-awful separation of the testicles (a kind of male camel toe), or the ones that do actually have side seams, have so little fabric between the seems that the penis gets squashed up underneath the balls!

 

I'm not looking for a kind of codpiece type of apparell, just something that will actually be comfortable to run in. Does such a male tight exist, or do I have to put up with the cramps and pain that running through the woods in the cold rain of England seems to cause me?

    There are no 3/4 length tights for men so you must have some massive orbs to wear themimage

    Ron hill tracksters are what you need. They even come in a men's version. They can be had for less than 15 quid inc post form wiggle, Achilles heel etc.
  • Not sure I understand the comment mate. They're 3/4 men's running tights with side seams. The length of which Nike does a ton of different versions; Pro Combat, Essentials, Elements.....The Ronhill Tracksters have the previously mentioned middle seam. Thanks for the advice, but that's exactly what I'm trying to avoid.

    Like he says, Ron Hill Tracksters. You would wear wicking undies under them or shorts so the seam issue shouldn't arise. I've been running in them for years and while my ageing body is always looking for new and interesting ways in which to chafe, it hasn't happened down there yet with the Tracksters. They're meant to fit a bit loose round there.

  • Do you always buy clothes four sizes too small? Doing that and then wearing them up around your armpits like Simon Cowell is the only way you'll get a bollock cameltoe from the Ronhill tracksters image

    Perhaps I got it the wrong way round. Maybe it is not that they don't do men's Capri pants/pedal pushers, it might just be that I have never ever seen a man wearing them. Ever.



    If Ron hills are splitting your atoms then there is no hope.
  • Thanks guys, appreciate the advice. I'll hunt down the Ronhill ones.



    As for never seeing men wearing capris, well they're pretty comfortable and I also wear shorts over them. So I'm sure if be well and truly sneered at by seasoned/snoby runners anyway! ;P



    Thanks!
  • I have some decathlon / kalenji capris and the are marked "home" 

  • VDOT52VDOT52 ✭✭✭
    ^^ that means you should only wear them indoors fella image ^^



    FCB, wearing shorts over said pedal pushers puts it into another category which I can not comment on.



    Just get some tracksters and enjoy unsplit atoms. They are not flash or trendy but they just work. I use mine when the feel like temp is below zero and they are awesome.

    Surely can't be long before the trend of brightly coloured and patterned tights reaches the domain of male legwear.

    Just difficult to know what shorts you'd wear on top of them.

  • Stupid iPad....."homme" 

    wore them for IM Nice last year, and no one commented 

  • Zut Alors !



    I do have some 3/4's for Autumn and cold spring cycling days - but with running - its always shorts. Its just easier and you soon warm up.
  • VDOT52VDOT52 ✭✭✭
    Yeah but to be fair you trisexuals follow your own rulesimage
  • shorts over longs, even half length longs, is just plain wrong.  One or the other, not both!  Forget splitting the atom(s) - you will cook the bloody things with so much material between your legs.

  • Have you tried cycling longs / tights? Just make sure you try ones *without* a pad (used in cycling to cushion the area most in contact with the saddle).

    It’s not my forum, I’m just a member looking to find other runners to chat to. I did look to see if there were any signature rules but couldn’t find any. Can you point me in the right direction?

    agree 3/4 r a bad look.  just need what I have a pair of almost ballet type tights no lining no seam,  all just like tubes . very warm in winter and cool n summer. cling to the muscles like plastic wrap. dry quickly when wet and comfortable. if it rains they can go see thru so watch out.  I get chuckles and giggles . a few whistles and whoops now and then. car horns toot me from behind as they creep up the crack a bit . looks like rudoph nureve / ballet dancer . girls love it. I feel mostly these are the best option as I do not like the thick nylon ones make you sweat. nothing under or over is best. be brave and proud boys . ya got bulge . no ken doll here mate .
  •  tights that sculpt around yr junk and let you free dog and flip flop no constraints or emasculation.  ladies love the look believe me.

    RUNNING IN MY TIGHT SEXY SPANDEX LEAVES NOTHING TO THE IMAGINATION . NOTHING UNDER JUST LET IT ALL BE SUPPORTED AND OUT AND PROUD BOYS . 


     

    tights with no seams and just support I find these very comfortable and terrific for my running. I do get looked at an awfull lot and stares even giggles and cheers . hundreds of girls have passed and turned their heads and seen my ass and whistled whooped and clapped. I get alot of compliments and girls wanting to cum up and chat about these. they just want to perve I don't mind as I am a bit of a sports exhibitionista and if ya got it flaunt it I say.  if you get even a tinny bit of movement or slightly aroused there is no where to hide . 


  •  to answer yr question these are male tights.

  • these are for the gym special pouch no ken doll effect here out and proud
  •  I think these are the ones you were refering to with a seem and not really made for guys . split the boys apart and make the veg dissapear , still I get a thousand smiles and whistles girls love the look . remember there is no where to hide if u get aroused longer shirt required if you are emmbarrassed 
  •  these are my fav speciallly designed for us guys with a loose gusset at front and if you cut the linning out it expands even more and no ken doll effect . out and proud boys. girls love it I get hundreds of stares smiles giggles and whistles a week
  •  my black ones are also pretty good , unlike the cream ones in my profile I don't have to wash these every day from stains and sweat and bodily fluids . so stretched and see thru girls do a double take running past and wonder if they saw what they think they saw. smiles all round . don't encourage me I'm already a sports exhibitionista . well know for my outrageous attire . girls comments are allways positive guys just think I must be gay . my bum looks pretty good in these too I am told
  •  this pair are for men however buyer be warned the gusset is a see through mesh it lets the air in and can get cold and there is no chance you can wear anything under it would look ridiculous . be brave and sport a pair today. stretched spandex  allows for expansion . I don't know about you but running gets my testosterone levels up and blood pumpin early in the morning and that in combination with hundreds of hot babes all in varying degrees of see thru stretched tights we can see yr bottom u know girls we love it. thats why we run slowly cumming up from behind

     these are for guys and have no seam are allways support and holding firm but not the crowded cycling gear look like a ken doll effect. I say be proud boys. is it me or all guys a bit turned on when running. pumpin all that blood every where. I am usually up for it early in the morning lots of smiles and pretty good stares and a few whistles every day. 
  •  cycling running and my go to gear for walking around cities as a tourist and just hiking and day to day wear. I get literally thousands of stares and smiles looks and comments. alot of giggles from the immature teenage girls and young ladies out and about. after a long day they do get clingy and see thru from sweat .  I think I feel more comfortable in these than ordinary tights .
