Salomon Momentum II Warm Tights - Women'sis rated3.8out of5by5.
Rated5out of5bySmileyLfromLove these tights!!!Bought these to run in Minnesota winters and they've become my favorite tights. No need to layer with wind pants (even at 0F). I love that the knees seem to have a little extra warmth and also that they are quite long (completely cover ankles) so no skin exposed. Very well thought out design! I immediately bought another pair!

Rated2out of5byOutdoorRunningfromWarm but seams falling apartThese tights run true to size. I am normally a size 2 in pants but felt the xs was too small (they fit like tights rather than leggings which I prefer) and ended up getting a S. These tights are warm and feel great on.
I read from other reviews on other sites that the quality is poor. I did noticed the seam on the back had unraveled a bit when I first got them. I figured that it was okay, just a small defect, and I really wanted to keep them. However, after just a short test jog, the seams on the inner thigh had began to unravel as well and there was a small hole or space in the crotch area where the fabric connects. The problem may be unique to only the pair I got but I would not recommend getting these tights as the quality is very poor and they will not last.

Rated2out of5byvegasdebfromGreat fabric, but too many seams for me.These tights were a gift from my boyfriend and I really wanted to like them. They looked great and the fabric felt soft and warm. Then I put them on.
I'm 5'4", weigh 110 lbs and have a 30" inseam. I usually wear S or XS. The ones I got were XS. I put them on and they were too small. The fabric was soft and stretchy but the seams didn't have any give and dug into my legs. No problem, I could just go back to REI and exchange them for a bigger size.
Gift receipt in hand, I went to my local REI. As always, the customer service great. I left the XS at the counter and went to find a S. They had a pair for me to try. Sadly, they were the right size, but the problem with seams was the same. The seams are too tight for the fabric, and these tights are constructed in such a way that there are seams everywhere; both sides of each leg and all the way around above and below each knee. The purpose may be to provide support, but instead they were just uncomfortable and made my legs look bad.
I ended up exchanging the Salomon for The North Face GTD Tight size S. I told my boyfriend. He said that he looked at both and had a hard time choosing. He liked the fabric of the Salomon, but thought the design of TNF tights was better. Since he knows I'm always cold he picked Salomon. I agreed. If a running tight was made using the Salomon fabric and TNF design it would have been perfect.
If you are considering the Salomon Momentum II Warm Tights you should actually try then on and check the fit.

Rated5out of5byemmyzuzufromWorth every penny!I just bought these on sale, and after my run in the snow today, I love these tights! They were warm, and didn't make my legs sweaty. My only complaint it that they are little long in length. I am 5'6'' and 123lbs, and I bought a size medium. I will also be using these for skate skiing, since they are so warm and comfortable.

Rated5out of5byRungirl7997fromGREAT for winter running!These have kept me warm while running in near single-digit weather here in MN. They are very comfortable and also windproof, without the bulk like other winter running pants. I am probably going to get another pair of these this year. If you get these, you won't be disappointed - they are the best!
