Where performance meets sustainability, the ashmei Winter Tight. This garment has been 36 months in product development to create the perfect fibre combinations that make this piece perform across a great spectrum of Winter sporting pursuits. Suitable for Cycling, Running, Snowsports, Rowing and Outdoor.

The 36 months in development starts with a blank piece of paper. We knew the product required a Merino Rich fibre to provide excellent thermo-regulative and anti-smell features, but also provide a product with high eco-credentials. We set out to develop a fabric that offered all of this but also offered excellent windproofing, water-resistance, durability and a next to skin fit. A complex engineering challenge.

The result is a highly engineered piece of kit, with the simplicity and elegance of ashmei design. The close to skin fit offers a semi-compressive fit which hugs the body, providing the perfect thermal micro-climate. If exposed to the elements, a PFC free water-resistant finish keeps raindrops at bay, while the close-knit of Merino Wool offers excellent wind protection. The upper body is made using our Merino + Carbon blend, acting as the first layer of core protection.

ashmei Designer Lucy Smith added: "The aim of this piece was for it to be the first piece you turn to this Winter, no matter what outdoor activity you are doing. Although it's so comfortable you may start using it around the house too"

    I’ve had these winter tights for a couple of months now, and I have to say I’m very impressed.
    I was a little apprehensive to start as they do not contain a chamois which means you have to wear a cycle short underneath.
    However the plus is you get to wear your favorite short underneath.
    As with most things Ashmei the fit is snug and the tights are gently compressing but once on the fit is superb and supporting. The materials are very comfortable against the skin and nothing chafes or rucks up.
    But here is the magic, I have warn these tights in temperatures down to 2-3 degrees C this winter and as the day warms, up to 10-12 degrees and I have been comfortable, never cold and never too warm. This range of temperatures is truly remarkable. You even stay comfortably warm when you stop at the café on those cold days where most kit lets the chill in.
    The materials appear to be wind proof, so the cutting cold winds we have had this year, don’t get through and although not waterproof rain just beads up on the outside and rolls away so you don’t get that cold strike of wet materials against the skin.
    So as I said at the start I am very impressed with these tights and whole heartedly recommend them.
    10 out of 10.
    Thanks Ashmei.

    These really are super winter tights! Well-worth the investment. Keep the legs snug and have a very comfortable, compressive fit.
