Got my new tights in the mail today and they are BEAUTIFUL. And so comfy. Except……
Apparently my much beloved pair are the “low rise” version. The pair I ordered are not. It’s not that big a deal, except they use a wider elastic band on the low rise version that I find much more comfortable. For a $100 pair of tights that I will be wearing a substantial amount of time, it’s worth it to have them be as perfect as possible.
So, I’m returning them for an exchange. Turns out that the return procedure for Tropical rider is VERY easy. Go to the website, fill out a form, and put on the form what you want them to send you.
I was looking forward to using them for a ride this weekend, so it’s a bummer – but I’m sure there will be a lot more rides in the future of these riding tights.
I pulled my old Tropical riders out of the washer to compare the fit and confirm they had the wider elastic waist band and I was surprised how faded they are – the thigh portion is a completely different color than the hip and lower leg! And the fabric is so thin. And there’s a hole in them I hadn’t seen before – probably because I don’t make it a practice to stare at my nether regions as I ride down the trail.
