Completely a dumb question about running tights(15 posts)

What do you wear under them? They aren't like cycling shorts so they don't have a chamois to hide things.

I would typically wear running shorts under them. I wear standard briefs under "fitness" shorts now (basically bike shorts with no chamois).
Semi-tights work better for me.dzrider

I find tights little warmer than running in shorts. When the temp drops below freezing I wear pants that are neither baggy like sweat pants nor tight like lycra and find them much better than lycra tights. Some of them come with stirrups, but I cut those off.

If I wore tights and was concerned about what little there is to hide in cold weather, I'd wear shorts over the tights.

Compression shorts or athletic breifs
Try Craft insulated underwear if it is cold. Or, run hard ;-)nmSpunout

I usually wear my "supportive device" and the Runner's World supplex/spandex shorts when it's cold. Otherwise it's just the "support device".

"Going combat" is DEFINITELY NOT an option!!

I will wear a wind brief. They are available at any running shop. Your penis, like your toes and fingers is an extremity. It can get very cold due to the blood supply being shunted away to keep your core warm. The wind brief does a great job, even with multiple layers for those sub zereo runs, to keep the little warm and happy.

for crazy cold wisconsin mornings i have sometimes used the double brief technique to keep everything warm and happy. also silk briefs if its super cold are nice and warm without a lot of bulk.
over and under..dotkaye

standard briefs under, standard running shorts over.
The running shorts add a lot of wind protection for the vital parts. Plus I can no longer display my butt in tights in public without getting ribald comments.. heh.

If you're going to be running this time of year over there, I'm guessing you've already ruled out going commando. I can't imagine anything worse then a frozen sac. whew!

I'd say long running pants over top, or if it's really freezing, I have a long pair of Nike DriFit shorts under long running pants.
