Tights

Postby hank moon » Jan 20, 2015 1:26 pm

Hey, I'm looking for a decent alternative to the old Chilli Heads "stretch cordura" tights, which are now unavailable.

They don't need to be especially warm, just stretchy and durable.

Anyone got a suggest?

Or, anyone got any size M Chilli Heads they're willing to sell?

Good question, thanks. No, these are to be used as part of a shorts + tights getup.

Ahhh I gotcha. Is it really flexible and stretchy cordura?

I have a pair, not Chilli Heads, that are stretch codura that I got in 1994. They still look brand new except for the elastic waist band is giving up. The material is tough as nails. I got them at Gabriell Brothers for a couple bucks. No tags on them.

Why is Chilli Heads not making them any more?

I bet Melgarita could make you some. https://www.etsy.com/people/Melgarita
