performs as expected
i don't know how reflective these are in real life, but i like the side pockets.
i don't like the placement of the side pockets though. i have other crops with the side pockets, but the slant goes in the other direction and they are a bit higher on the leg. the pockets on these are lower, so, when i run, my phone ends up bouncing up and down and rubbing on my iliotibial band with every step. it's pretty uncomfortable. i'm 5'1 though, so maybe taller ladies won't have this problem. also, this is only an issue when i run; i haven't had any discomfort with my phone in the pockets while lifting weights in the gym.

They are very compressive and I enjoy the little detail in them. They are tts. I am 5'10 and 160 lbs and took a size 8. I took one star away simply for the fact that they are not special but certainly not disappointing. One point I do really enjoy about them is that they do not move while you are working out.

Seams coming undone
I've never had a problem with lulu's quality so I bought these despite some iffy reviews. After about 3 months of wearing these twice a week at most, the stitching at the seams is coming unraveled in two places. I bought these specifically because I wanted the Inkwell colour. With my closest lulu store about 6 hours away, I guess I'm stuck with these. Really disappointed.

I love these crops! They are finally a great length for me as I find the Inspire's fit like pants. (I'm 5'2") I have them in blue and black and would love for them to come in more colours. I haven't had any issues with the quality of the pants. I'm glad there's a drawstring as after a long, sweaty run they do fall down a bit. Lulu- Please make more crops for us short ladies!

Thread came loose
I bought these pants about a month ago, and they were mainly for when I went for runs, but also for work purposes. I was disappointed because when I wore them out for my runs they kept falling down, and I was getting slightly annoyed by having to constantly pull them up. Then about two weeks into owning these pants I realized the thread was coming loose, and just yesterday a large hole opened up. I love lulus products and have been buying it for years... but I strongly suggest not to buy these

thread coming loose...
I loved the pocket and the fit. Run a bit small.
But only after like 3 or 4 wears, the thread on the end of the right came loose and the more I pull it to try to get rid of it the more it comes out....
Frankly I'm kinda disappointed...I spent like 90 for this. I bought the black one.

Wanted to love them
I wanted to love these capris but they are a nuisance. When I tried them on they looked great on me and the fit was very flattering. I love the functionality of the side pockets. The first time I wore these I ran 5 miles and the only issue I had was the draw cord stitching was a little abrasive underneath my navel and very annoying but I overall they held up well. Next run 13.1 miles with 5 GU's in each side pocket no problem. 3rd run I ran a 5k and they kept sliding down. The last time I wore these pants I stopped my 5 mile run after 3 miles because I was spending too much time stopping to pull my pants up. Very disappointed! I wanted to love these capris but the draw cord scratches my tummy and after 2 wears the elasticity in the waistband was stretched out of shape.

One of my favorites!
I wore these for my last half marathon. I was a big old clutz and tripped over uneven payment in the first half mile and fell flat on my face! Other than some dust there isn't a mark on these pants!!!
After the race I inspected both pants and knees..... my knees didn't fair so well, all scraped up.
I'm amazed that they didn't tear! And that I'm comfortable temperature wise in 80 degrees as well as 40 degrees, even though the fabric seems thin.
I bought the black camo first but felt like they slid down during my run. So I bought the grean camo and black flower print in a size down and they are perfect! I can use the first pair for weight training.

Wheres the Quality Control gone?
Ordered these in the Rocky Road print. The Lululemon logo is completely off center and so is the rear waistband zip pocket. Put them on to see if it was true and they looked even more ridiculous on from the back! I've noticed quality control sliding a lot lately with Lululemon. Prices UP, Quality going DOWN.

I purchased two pairs of these crops in store (black and maroon), and was delighted when the blue pair went on sale online. I now own all three colors! They are SO comfortable, and I love the higher waistline for those of us that have had multiple children and have a little bit of extra skin. My favorite crops!
