First Ascent X-Trail tights review – Malcolm Dunkeld

The Wolkberg two day trail run was my first opportunity to really test these tight. All their features worked superbly and ensure no charring during the two days of mountain trail running. 

  • Elastane based moisture management fabric
  • Trail run specific with gripper around the quad area
  • Energy gel stash pockets
  • Zip secure rear pocket
  • Flatlock seaming detail to reduce potential chafe
  • Reflective trim for extra visibility


Stand out feature was the energy gel stash pockets, these worked great for storing gels and even small bars and almost more importantly it was a perfect place to put used product wrappers.


Definitely a worthwhile investment for any trail runner or adventure races.
