Speed Tight *Brushed Interlock
Best Running Leggings I've Ever Had
These leggings are so comfortable that you never want to take them off- ever. They keep you at the perfect temperature no matter the condition, the other day I was running in the snow and I could have been running inside for the temperature my legs were at! On the opposite extreme, when running in warmer conditions they don't make your legs too warm. Whenever I have to put my phone into one of the side pockets I forget it's there because you can't feel it when you're running and it never shakes. The fit is tight, comfortable, and flattering for all body types. There is no sheerness to them at all and are not in anyway see through so you can feel free to do stretches in confidence. They move with your body and are insanely easy to run with They are by far the best leggings I have encountered, and will undoubtedly buy more soon!

Good fall running pants - but not for winter
I bought these expecting them to be an "all season" running pant. They were great for the fall; however, now that the weather has gotten cold these pants are NOT warm at all. After a 30 min run I could barely feel my thighs.

Favorite Running Pants
I love the way these pants fit and feel on! I bought two so far, one in deep zinfandel and in Black. Make sure you buy your proper size, I'm a size 4 usually and I bought one of them in size 6 cause I was told they fit too tight (supposed to fit snug). I bought my second pair in size 4 and they fit perfectly.

Need more warmth!!!
I have two pairs of these pants and I do love the pockets and extra little layer of warmth but these pants do not even come close to cutting it for warmth for all season running. They are a fall pant, not a winter pant. In the last year, I have pretty much converted my veteran running mates to convert to Lulu but this morning (-5 and sunny) we were all complaining about the how cold our upper legs were. I even had your fluff running skirt over top and it was of little added warmth. I seem to recall a couple of years ago, you have a running pant that had a front part that was wind proof and much more winter appropriate. We are REALLY hoping you come up with something this year or we'll be back to layering two pairs of these tights for our runs!!!

Awful for long runs
I have had these tights for 3 weeks and worn them twice. Very comfortable from the top but super uncomfortable from calf area; especially for long runs (9 to 11 miles). I own 3 pairs of the inspire and absolutely love them. Very disappointed. I called the store to see if I had any options, the sales associate was no help and extremely rude (Crystal Court/South Coast Plaza ? Costa Mesa, California).

Fabric is pilling
I have had these tights for 4 weeks. I do some yoga and have been to the gym 3 times with them. I noiced the knee area (from kneeling) is pilling, and looking a bit worn and fuzzy. I am shocked because I have hardly used them. I feel these tights should be built to withstand minimal gym/yoga activity, and like I said, I have only had them for a month. Not impressed.

I originally bought these because I loved the color. Was sad at first because there really wasn't much a of a sport bra that I had to go with them, but Lulu came out with one to match the Zinfindal color a week later. I have a few of the running crops with the pockets on the sides and I love them. The side pockets are what drew me to buy them. I put gloves, headbands, GU, etc in the side pockets and have never lost anything.
I have used these for hot yoga and like many of the reviews have fallen in love with them. I sweat a lot in yoga and I did not over heat in them. Can't wait to see how they work for running. Depending on temp might have to try them in our upcoming Turkey trot.
I am a runner by nature, but do hot yoga to cross train and keep my muscles long.

very warm, BUT...
I was so excited to wear these pants when the weather got cold. I live in the South, so it hasn't gotten below 40 degrees yet, and these brushed interlock are the PERFECT material. Prior to my first run, I would have given these a 5 for warmth and fit.
Unfortunately, the first time I wore them on a run (I only run about 4-6 miles at a time) they stretched out and I spent the whole run pulling up my waist. I am 135 lbs and have worn a size 6 in all of my lulu pants, and bought these in a 6. They felt perfect in the store and I loved the detail around the ankle, if only the fit had lasted. I also wore them on a hike and found myself tugging at the waist yet again. The drawstring didn't help. Also, there is a long string hanging from the seam on the leg. With only one delicate wash and air drying, this should not be an issue when I paid $100-- this sure seems to be an issue with the quality. I ordered these in the black and purple, but will be returning the unworn pair. Had the other pair not been worn, I would have returned them as well. Definitely disappointed in these :(

Great pair of pants...try them on first, though!
I bought a black pair of these in a size 4 about a month ago. Perfect! Warm, compressing, not sheer, and very flattering! I loved them so much that I went in to buy another pair today - the navy with green and medium blue stripes. As I am always a size 4, I just grabbed my size and bought the pair without trying it on. When I got home and tried them on, I was shocked! They are EXTREMELY baggy. They fit like a size 8 or 10. I'm not sure if it is just the one pair or if the sizing is way off in just this colour... Anyways, I'm rather ticked now as I'll have to go out of my way to return these. They are very expensive, so errors like this should not happen. Ugh.

I am a CF trainer our my garage and these pants do a great job of keeping out the IL cold. I love the fit and the side pockets are perfect for cell phone storage! Definitely will be purchasing more of these!
