...and short school-aged boys whose waist and height measurements aren't synched with the manufacturers standard. Zippers on trouser legs, grrr.

I find running tights annoying - although they stretch to fit whatever needs to be squeezed in, there isn't much to do with extra length that just gathers in the region of upper leg and crotch. Folding up from the bottom "works" but not quite the same sleek fit. Rain trousers - near hopeless, but I always keep my eyes open for the unexpected find.

For any shorter females traveling to US, I recommend http://titlenine.com They have some sportswear in petite lengths.
I give up completely with running tights - who the hell designs them??? The distance from crotch to waistband is ridiculous - I end up pulling them right up and tying over the hip bone - so that they sit there and don't drop.

The INOV-8 shorts are quite good - with a soft elastic back - but they need tightening around the waist to keep them in place.

It would be easier to run naked.
