Speed Tight II *Full-On Luxtreme (Brushed)
Awesome for the Cold
The speed tights are amazing, I bought them last weekend at the Halifax store. The male employee said buy them tight, you wont be disappointed. He assured me they would be fine for super cold runs. I wore them today and yesterday with a cold wind chill and was extremely comfortable, I love the compression feel..
Really awesome tights. I will be buying another pair for myself for Christmas.
When I got home from Halifax (5 hours from my home) and reviewed my receipts buying many items, I noticed they had not charged me for my tights, when I called today to rectify this, they said thanks for being honest, just pay it forward....I will be paying a certain someone`s power bill so they can enjoy Christmas a little more...Thanks LULU, you rock in many ways..

Great running pants
These are my first pair of lululemon running pants and they are really a step above any others I've had. I like the thickness of the material and the spandex gives a bit of compression on the thigh. I quite like the high waistband which is useful when it's very cold. I think these will be good until about -15C.
The only problem is they are very very long. I'm 5'5" but have short legs, however these are longer than any other pants I've had, so I have big bunches of material around the ankles even if I pull them up as much as I can. It would be great if they were made in different lengths.
The pocket at the side of the leg is a bit unflattering and I don't see myself using it without a zipper. That said the pants are still great and I run in them every day.

I've been wearing lulu for 11 years. I loooove these pants. I have several "generation" of these tech pants and lulu has not disappointed me yet. I know the quality has ebbed and flowed in other products, but NOT THESE! They are perfect running pants for cold, windy, and misty weather from about 55 and below. Great for layering under ski pants too. They have more compression than other speed tights so keep that in mind. If you want to size up for comfort, there is a drawstring to keep the pants from slipping.
I am perplexed by the speed tight ii full-on luxtreme pants ($108) as these feel warmer and have more compression. What is the difference lulu?

Great pant overall
I just want to say I have read a lot of the reviews of this product and if you take a look by scrolling down the majority of the negative reviews are from early 2014. I have a feeling they have fixed some things/ changed materials as these pants are awesome!
I am not just a runner, I also go to the gym all the time and find myself doing lots of circuit training and fast movements. these pants are also great to stretch in, and they never fall down. and that's a huge one for me. I hate having to go and pull up my pants constantly. the drawstring is perfect because I can actually tie a little bow and make my pants sit right on the hips -they never slide!
I also am 6'1 and I am so impressed with the length of the leg on these. they are perfect.
I am still worried that they might pill, although I read on here somewhere that a person had them pill in one day, and to be honest I don't understand how, because I've pretty much worn mine everywhere (gym, grocerys, in the car ect) and there has been no pilling at all yet, HOWEVER the seam has been rubbed a few times because of my boxing gloves and has like a pilled kinda look to them in a few random spots (hardly noticeable). basically just don't rub Velcro on your pants and you'll be fine.
the pocket is a cute added detail.
on the whole I really like these pants but only gave them a 4 star because I have not yet had them for a long time and feel like its generous enough to base a 4 star review off of 3 days wear. I have had terrible luck with lulu so there is still a small part of me that worried they might rip or tear somewhere but so far so good. Im praying to the lulu gods that these pants pull through in the long term and I get a good 6-8 months wear out of them.
If they don't pill in 2 weeks I will be buying another pair.

ALOT of pilling, a few holes in the seam by ankles
These pants are great for running, and much more. I love the comfort they offer, but they get a lot of pilling! I wore them once and for some odd reason the next day the whole right leg was covered in pilling, and all I do is let them air dry. Other than pilling and a few holes in the seams by the ankles I had no issues. I have had these pants for a few months. But now I do feel embarrassed to go out and about in them because of the issue.They are very comfy and true to your size. And it is only this product I had an issue with pilling and the holes. I have many other lulu clothing items which are to die for.

These are the ideal combination of features and fit. Love the side pockets and the length and definitely the continuous drawstring. Even if the fit is snug on a pair of tights I always need the drawstring at some point it seems. No roll-downs with these tights, yahoo! I purchased the black-grape colour, love it! My husband accidentally threw all my running clothes in the dryer (helpful?) the other night and I was dismayed, thinking he might have wrecked my new favs...but nope! They came through beautifully. Well done!

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE these tights. They are my go to pants for running outdoors. These tights fit perfect and don't slip down when running. They are a great weight for fall/winter outdoor running. They are a bit expensive but totally worth the money.

awesome, but have a question
Excellent for running! They really do feel like a 2nd skin and after trying on and returning numerous pairs from other places, I went back to lulu for these tights. The pockets are one of the best features as well.
I am wondering about the brushed, how warm are they? is the brushed a fleece material? what temperature are these best in? Wondering if the brushed will be too hot for up to 10 degree weather. The ones I just got have mesh down the back and maybe they will be too chilly for 0 to 10 degrees. Thanks! Please keep making these lulu.

Best winter running pants!!
Best running pants...the end. Treat them right, wash them right and you will get miles and miles out of them. I've just recently purchased another pair for this winter to add to my two from last year.
Waistband is higher which is great to keep out the cold wind. Please put the side pockets on all your running pants!! They make me so happy :D
They fit like a glove and don't budge. I've tried ALL of the brands of running gear, do yourself a favour and buy these.
