Constructed of a 2-layer bonded softshell the Dolma Softshell Tight was made for cool, wet or snowy days. Wind-and-water repellant with a warm and soft interior, our Dolma Softshell Tight is a warmer, more water-resistant version of our favorite Kalpana Hike Tight.
I love the fabric, the warmth and the feel of the tights. Unfortunately, they were not a good fit for my body. I am 5‘5” and about 145 lbs. I returned them for that reason.
Haven't had a lot of time with these yet, but noticed there weren't any reviews so wanted to give some thoughts. Overall really pleased/ excited about these. Plan to use them for dog walks and winter bike commuting in Alaska.
Pros: The fabric is cozy and thick, but still has plenty of stretch - because it is so thick it almost feels like neoprene to me, but I kind of like that; the fit in the waist and thighs is great...love that thick waist band (I am 5'5" and 125-130 lbs and have a size XS); stayed comfortable during a 45 min dog walk in 32 F
Cons: Because of how thick the fabric is, it definitely feels a little tight behind the knee, particularly when it bunches as your knee bends - the stretch of the fabric means this is not a deal breaker, but it is the reason why these only get four stars instead of five. They are also just a little longer than I would want - I prefer my leggings to hit right above the ankle and these go over the ankle.
Both pro and con: Most winter leggings I have had have zippers at the ankle/ partway up the calf, but these do not. This is a con because it means I won't be able to use them with my nordic ski boots as they won't fit over the top and with the thick fabric there is a little more fussing to get them on. This is a pro because when they are tucked into boots, there is no zipper pressing into your ankle (which I have experienced with other tights).
