You’ve probably done it before — caught your nail on a new pair of tights and watched the rip unravel all the way up your leg. Quite honestly, it’s the epitome of an “UGH!” moment.

But rather than buying a bunch of back-up tights or trying to fix tiny holes with clear nail polish, you could just buy these nearly indestructible tights.

Sheertex makes what it calls “the world’s toughest tights.” Videos on the brand’s site and Instagram show women tearing at their tights, trying to rip them to no avail.

The tights get their strength from Sheertex knit, a patent-pending propriety material the brand created that uses the world’s strongest polymers. In fact, the fibers are 10 times stronger than steel, according to its website. Sheertex knit is also anti-microbial, water-resistant, ethically-made in Montreal, Canada.

“Everyone said unbreakable tights would be impossible, but we knew we could make our own luck,” founder and CEO Katherine Homuth writes on the site.

The brand makes classic sheer black tights, opaque tights, printed tights, shaping tights and more in sizes ranging extra small to 3XL. Some best sellers include the Classic Sheer Tights, Classic Ultrasheer Tights and the Shaping Sheer Tights.

Most of the full-length tights start at $69. However, the brand also offers bundles of tights, which will save you some money.

While these tights are admittedly pricer than your average pair of tights, they’ll also last you a lot longer. In the long-run, you’ll save money — and keep less pairs of old tights from going to landfills.

As part of its sustainable approach, Sheertex also has a second chance line. It uses leftover materials to create things like socks, scrunchies, masks and underwear.
