The harley tights by Alala are a moto-inspired design featuring ribbed and shine-finish blocked panels. They have a definite cool factor that drew me in, so I ordered a pair to try.
I bought these in my usual Alala size, XS. They fit mostly true to size, except they seem a tad bit loose through the hips. If you’re between sizes, I’d lean towards going down a size.
The main fabric is a slick-faced and lightweight construction. Even though they’re thin, these are not sheer on me at all, even in a full squat. Keep in mind that because of the thinner fabric, these are prone to VPL, so you’ll want to wear something seamless underneath. There is no compression, so these are best for light impact activities.
The waistband is a raw elastic band, not the more common wide waistband you see on most of their other leggings. The rise is quite high, hitting around the belly button on me. Since the waistband is elastic, there are no pockets.
Despite the paneling all down the legs, the seams don’t bother me. Even though I’m on the short side (5’3″), the shine panel at the knee is just high enough to avoid uncomfortable rubbing on the knee joint. The seams are also all flat, which helps minimize any potential seam rubbing.
If you’re looking for tights that lock everything down, I don’t recommend these. Instead, I highly recommend trying the siren tights instead, which offer a supportive, compressive fit with a high rise.
By the way, I’m also wearing the mesh tank in lagoon. This is my third color in this tank and it might just be my favorite. It’s such a rich hue, and I always love teal. I reviewed this tank previously in this post, so I won’t repeat myself here. The only difference is that now the gold logo is at the back of the neck instead of the side.
Overall, I decided to keep my harleys. They’ll be best for light wear like hikes or yoga, including sweaty endeavors thanks to the light, breathable fabric.
