Mondor’s range of Merino Wool tights are designed to give you the ultimate in warmth using top quality wool.
The first thing we noticed about these tights was their sheer bulk, they are certainly not lightweight sheers!. Release them from their open packaging and you see and feel that they are very much like heavy plain socks, except of course they cover you from hip to toe. The sock similarities even extend to the way the toe and heel are finished, fully knitted to shape.
The panty is a different knit design to give stretch and flexibility. Our test pair in XL had a comfort gusset but we believe smaller sizes have a standard gusset. The standard Mondor elastic waistband is used again, one of the finest features of their hosiery it is both comfortable and effective.
Sizing was more generous than expected, the stretch provided was sufficient to cope with the maximum suggest height and the maximum suggested weight simultaneously. Fit was first rate from hip to toe, and for such a heavy and thick garment the comfort was exceptional.
Although designed as a garment for women this style would be equally suited for use as a thermal base layer for men.
Serious tights for really cold weather.
