About Running Bare
Running Bare is an Australian based activewear brand that’s been around for over 30 years!

Running Bare Review: Ab Waisted Fight Club Tight in Amina
#1 Size: Per Running Bare’s size chart, I chose a medium. I was hoping the fabric would be different from my previous review of the Fight Club tight review, and it was! *whew* The Amina printed fabric is thinner and much more comfortable to wear throughout various seasons. I recommend sizing up in Running Bare. Their sizing runs small.
#2 Style: Running Bare makes leggings, crops, shorts, tank tops, sport bras, jackets and more. They make only women’s clothing.
#3 Inseam: The leggings have a 28″ inseam.
#4 Rise: The tights have a 6″ front rise and 8″ back rise (size Medium). The large rise is great for my ladies who got some booty.
#5 Waistband: Fight Club tight has a 4.5″ waistband. The waistband has a seam around the waistline for a stay put fit. There are also seams on the sides of the waistband. The waistband also has no pockets.
- Fabric Content: RB Runway Fabric – 69% Nylon/31% Elastane blend
- Fabric Feel: The fabric feels SUPER soft, lightweight and VERY silky when worn. The fabric is VERY stretchy. The fabric is comparable to Arthletic Wear and Yoga Democracy.
- Fabric Performance:
- Quick Drying and Dry Wicking (sweat evaporates at the surface within minutes)
- 4-Way Stretch for a compressive and form flattering fit.
- Fabric memory retains the legging elasticity.
- Opacity: The fabric is white backed and does stretch a bit at the knees and bum area, but it’s not noticeable unless you look closely.
- Fabric Features:
- Grey logo printed on the front left hip of the pant.
- No waistband pockets.
#7 When to Wear: Running Bare creates activewear for all facets of your life. I would wear these to workout, run errands and while lounging around.
#8 Cost: The leggings are a bit on the pricier side. The Fight Club Amina print leggings cost $110. Scroll down for discount codes to save on Running Bare.
#9 Gusset: Running Bare pants come with a triangle shaped, single layer gusset. The gusset is wide and provides great coverage.
#10 Stitch Seam: The Fight Club tights are made with flat fell seams for a flat and chafe free fit. There is one overlock seam around the inner bottom of the waistband.
#11 UPF Protection: Not disclosed.
#12 Made in Australia. With love! Over 70% of their range is manufactured and produced in Australia to ensure quality and fit is of the highest standard.
Should I Buy Running Bare?
I highly recommend Running Bare! I loved that the fabric is much thinner with this iteration and print. It was very comfortable to wear in warmer climates and I will definitely be wearing it often. The colorful print allows me to mix and match the leggings with a variety of items in my current closet. I especially recommend it with the Free People Movement Jesse crop top. The top is my current Summer obsession!
This was a different outcome from my previous Running Bare review. I am so glad I gave them another try. Check out my previous Running Bare review here.
