Light and durable mid-length women’s performance tights, perfect for all types of training. Made in a recycled and recyclable polyester fabric, making the garment fully circular.
What makes them special?
Instead of blending in elastane to give the tights stretch, Women's Adventure Short Tights are made with pure polyester and a mechanical stretch given by the knitting technology. You get a warmer and “dryer” feeling compared to elastane tights, which is very pleasant against the skin and a lot more suitable for layering. It is also moisture wicking and dries a lot quicker. The fabric is rather firm and will feel ”tighter” compared to some tights but it will adapt to your body as you wear them.
Fabric and features
The pure polyester fabric also enables a circular design, where we use 57% recycled and fully recyclable fibers. Instead of just becoming trash at the end of their lifetime, the raw material in this product can be recycled and made into new useful things in an endless loop of awesomeness. The Adventure Short Tights have two highly useful stash pockets on the outside of the thigh, a low bulk waistband for extra comfort and a drawstring in the wasit to adjust the fit.
When should I use them?
Women’s Adventure Short Tights are a perfect choice if you are looking for a pair of versatile tights for running, training, yoga or hiking. Thanks to the circular design, you are also doing something good for our planet.
When this product is completely worn out, please return it to Houdini for recycling. We have recycling units in all our own stores and at many retailers.
Fully circular pure polyester double knit with mechanical stretch. The mono material construction without elastane provides a warmer and “dryer” feeling compared to elastane tights which is very pleasant against the skin and a lot more suitable for layering. It is also moisture wicking, dries a lot quicker and makes the garment recyclable.
When washing clothes made of synthetic fabrics, the use of a washing bag becomes even more important: It prevents microplastics from entering into rivers and oceans.
The Circular label means that this product is made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
The Recycled label means that this garment contains at least 50% recycled fibers (often more, see product description). The source is either recycled clothes or other sources like PET bottles. We mainly use recycled polyester, which has many benefits. It reduces both CO2 emissions and water use compared to virgin polyester. How much depends on the type of recycling. One of our suppliers show 32% less CO2 emissions and 94% less water use for mechanically recycled polyester. Besides the production impact, the major shift is using "waste" as raw material instead of crude oil.
The Recyclable label means that the raw material in this product can be used for new products, instead of becoming waste. Our goal is that by 2030, we will take no raw material to our products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from reycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but we need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.
A sustainable choice
Circular design - towards a world without waste
We believe in circular design. Sometimes we use recycled and recyclable synthetics and sometime natural fibers. Both have their merits, but the important thing is that we save the planets resrouces and don't create any waste. On a system level, it makes a huge difference.
