Run: Pace Tight
Loved them; stayed up; great color
After much internal debate about whether the color would show sweat (and reading comments on other sites that it did not), I bought these in the heathered deep coal. I am very pleased with my choice! The fabric is incredibly soft/smooth and the color is great. While the "thinness" of the fabric does mean that bright/dark color undies show a bit in full bend, I do not bend over when I run, so I could care less about this. My underwear did NOT show when I was running or when I did some partial bending tests in front of the mirror. Besides, pretty much every pair of spring/summer/fall-weight running tights I own from multiple brands has the same problem. Personally, I really appreciate the lightweight fabric for the purposes of running and prefer it to super heavy fabric that feels ultra-restricting.
Use-wise, I wore these for my 10-mile run this past Saturday and had a 100% positive experience. The fabric did not show as darker in my sweat areas; the pants did not slip or fall down; and I did not have to do any tugging or rearranging the entire run. I also really love the zip pocket for my keys.
I just bought my second pair of these and plan to get at least one more to get me through the fall/ early winter.

Cute running tights
I originally wanted the heathered deep coal color but of course they sold out when I finally decided to order. I tried the size 6 in black on at the store and the first thing I noticed was that they were sheer! But because they fit so well, I decided to order the black heathered wee stripe - just got them today and am happy to say that they are not sheer at all. I probably could've fit into a 4 just as well since that's my usual size in most items but I went with a 6 because of how they fit in store.

so sad it's a little sheer
Loved the red color and ordered my usual size 2 on line. When I received it and tried it on, I immediately felt that the fabric had a little plastic feeling even though the fit was really slimming. What was worse - when I bent down, hard to deny that I could see the contour of the tag... I could have kept these pants since I really loved the vibrant red stripes, but I just couldn't justify the cost of $92 for sheer pants - so back it went.

ADORABLE, but SHEER!
These pants are super comfortable and really cute! The ONLY issue is the fact that they are sheer. I even sized up. I was paranoid the whole time I had them on (I was outside with a my military squadron) and was afraid someone would say something! YIKES! Wish the material was a tiny bit thicker. Bummer.

This is my first lululemon running pants purchase. After tearing through Nike tights all through college (I ran college track, so I'm particular about my running attire!), I decided to switch up my running pants game. I purchased these in the all black and tried them on for the first time today. They feel great AND look awesome! I am always concerned about sheerness, and these pants are completely opaque. I had a friend check for sheerness as I did a downward dog, and they passed the test! This pant is very versatile. I anticipate wearing as running pants, yoga pants, and just on the go pants!
For reference, I am 5'4, 117lbs - quite lean but a little junk in the trunk - and purchased a size 6.
Good job lulu! I'll be purchasing in more colors!

Perfect run pant
Love these pants!
Tried these on at the store, was told I might want to size down as they've been known to slide down while running but I went with my usual 6 and they feel and look great. I do not have any issues with them thus far. I bought the black/grey stripe with black side panels. They are a bit shear but this colour combo seems to help. The all black I tried on at the store looked like it would be shear once out in sun, bending, movin' and a groovin'. Plus sizing down so they'll stay up will only add to the shear issue.

Nice and Slimming
Just purchased these tights in a size 4. Fit perfectly, I am 5"1' and 125lbs for reference. I really like how slim they make my legs look, especially since I got the dark grey/black colour. I have bigger thighs and they seem to hide them. The only thing I don't like about these tights is that because I am short the crotch part sits kind of low and even if you wear them higher up it still sits low.

My go to running pants
I LOVE these pants! I got them in grey! They are my go to running pants. It seems like I'm always pulling up my pants throughout the first mile of my run no matter how tight I tie the draw strings, with the exception of these pants. I love these so much. I don't have to pull at my pants, they are super soft, cute design and I didn't have to alter it and lose the reflective strip at the bottom.

Color Bleeding Nightmare!
My friends often say that what I need is an intervention as I am clearly addicted to lulu everything! These pants, however, were a huge disappointment! In fact, I would suggest anything avoiding anything in this pale pink/coral color! I have a pair of speed shorts that I love, however they are giving me the same issue! The waistband on my speed shorts is bleeding, leaving it looking faded and discolored, but the Run: Pace Tight is far worse! The bleeding is at every seam! Along the waistband, down the side seams, at the mesh seams near the calf! Not only that, but it's ruined other clothes as well! I washed them alone at first, but after a few washes and color bleeding, I figured it was over, so I threw in a few other things with them and now those are pink too! What a nightmare! I don't know what's going on with this color, but it's changing the way I feel about colored anything from Lulu....

Bring these Pants Back!!
These pants far exceeded expectations for quality, comfort, fit and style. I bought the full length black color with green neon side stitching/waistband. They are incredibly flattering and slim out my curves as I am more bottom heavy. I am 5'4 and 120 lbs and I bought the size 8 on sale but if available would have preferred a size 6 or even a size 4 (fit appears to be fuller than other Lulu pants). The length hits right above my angle and is perfect for all seasons. They are not sheer at all in the black color. I am keeping my fingers crossed that these pants come back in the black colors w/accent stitching as I will be sure to purchase MANY more!
