Speed Tight II *Full-On Luxtreme (Brushed)
I have a walk in closet full of work out gears, from every brand you can name, and I am a big time lulu fan. I run, swim and bike. I am 128 lbs and wear size 4.
Love the fabric, but the lines behind the thighs, they show the cellulite behind my legs more obvious, which is disappointing. Other speed tight II, do not have that line. .

Worn a couple of times, have started to pill
Currently all my workout and yoga apparel is lululemon with 30 pairs of pants/crops and tons of sweaters/tops.
I haven't had a problem with the run line until these pants. I do love fit of these pants but the pilling.. well lets say is not okay for lulu's standard. I wash gentle inside out with gentle tide liquid detergent and still! They pilled..... I rate these a 5 for fit and look but quality is not at its standard. It repels me from wanting to buy pants from lulu again.....

cute but so thin they ripped!!!
Really wanted to buy these for the cool pockets because I thought they'd be convenient while running. Disappointing to find the pants i spend over $100 dollars on ripped, could find the same or even better in a pair $20. As a broke teenage girl I was hoping not to waste my money!! I would suggest not to buy these!!

One of my favourites
I live in a cold climate so I'm a sucker for warm yoga pants. These are great, they are extremely flattering and seem to hold up really well. And they do not slide down - that has been my biggest issue with most warmer yoga pants from other brands. I hope there will be more colours available in the fall cause I will definitely be purchasing more!

I'm an avid and loyal lulu buyer. Currently my closet has over 20 pairs of Wunder unders and over 30 tops.
However. I was completely devasted over these pants. I fell in love with them because of the geometry and the pockets. I had never had a problem with lulu so instantly bought two pairs. I only wore each of them to walk around Vancouver when I first moved here and the upper inner thighs pilled so horribly. I did not run exercise or sweat in them at all and hand wash or gentle cycle all my lulus in cold water with other lulus. I took the pants to the store on Robson and the customer service was absolutely terrible. I went to ask if the speed tight IIIs were a better Lycra % for this and this particular staff member was incredibly rude and condescending. Really upsetting as prior to this all quality and customer service with lulu was incredibly positive.

I wear these pant almost every day. But they need to be washed by themselves and inside out to prevent the seams from balling up.

Best Lululemon Pants
I absolutely love these pants!! Of all the lululemon pants I have ever bought these are by far my favourite pants no comparison. They stay up, they have pockets, they look great, and they past the bend over test! Not see through at all! I am around 5'10 180 pounds I wear a size 8 and they are slimming, and comfortable, and overall just a great pair of pants! They are really great for running as they do not fall down and they have a reflective band! I would recommend these pants to anybody and everybody!

Love the fit, but pilly already :(
I have a few pairs of Speed I, and they still look excellent, even though they are well over a year old and get worn a few times a week.
These though are not of the same quality. The brushed material pills...after only having them a short period of time, air drying and only washing with other Lulu! I love the fit and they don't slip, but the material is terrible!
I can't afford to spend over $100 on something that pills after less than a month of use.
Lulu, this can't be. Please go back to your Speeds with non-pilling luxtreme and no mesh!
Will not buy these ever again and not impressed.

Already pilling before first wear
I was so excited too see these on WMTM a while ago, so I ordered them immediately. I ordered size 2 (I'm around 5'3 around 100lbs), and they fit perfectly. I loved them until when I looked more closely, I could notice some minor pilling already at the upper waist line with the brush fabric, I didn't even start wearing them yet! I am not sure if I got a returned item from someone else, or it just happened to be me being unlucky to get a pair like that. I am so disappointed, and I am not looking forward to wash them as I know they are going to pill. I have another pair of speed tight with just full on luxtreme, and those are working perfectly fine. I guess from now on I'll just stick with anything without the brush fabric :(

Disappointed in first lululemon purchase
I have heard great things about lululemon so for my birthday I asked for these tights as I specifically loved the amount of pockets(still do, so convenient!) but I am so sad that after owning them for a little over a month, having only washed once(followed exact instructions even washing them alone as I heard that should help prevent pilling) that they have started pilling on the top left hip/waist section and there are many seams on the ankle, crotch and hip that are either pilling or coming loose. For pants that cost over $100 I would have never imagined this would happen, I thought I was making an investment in my workout clothing by requesting these for my birthday but I am very disappointed as I was so pleased with these before the quality problems arose, I have similar pants that I have had for 5+ years and these same problems have yet to occur. (side note, I think I took the wrong size as the lady in the store recommended to go a size up in these as they fit small so I took a 10 instead of my usual 8 so when they stretched they are a little too big, though I love the drawstring in the waist to keep them up after they stretched in the waist)
