Speed Tight *Brushed Full-On Luxtreme
Great running tights!
I scored these tights on sale at my local lulu store -- I had never tried lulu's pants until now and am glad I tried them on! Took them out for a run and they were so comfortable I didn't want to take them off! As always, the pockets are awesome and the material great -- very comfortable! The reflective detail on the bottom of the leg is also a great idea if you want to flip the cuff.

Favourite Cold Weather Run Pant
I have been enjoying this product for 6 months. I tend to require a few extra layers in the colder months and I find this fabric weight to be suitable for temps from -10 degrees to 10 degrees. There is moderate compression along the legs. The fit is fabulous and comfortable with or without an underpant (to each their own). They are long enough in the waiste to not ride up, yet short enough to sit comfortably just slightly above hips. The many pockets provide great options for stashing gels. After many washes they look like new. I imagine I will get many winters out of these pants.

Rad In Every Way
These are my favorite running tights ever made my lulu. The pockets on the side might be why I love them so much, perfect for storing an iPhone on long runs! I'm a half marathon runner and these are my go to pants, as they are no fuss, comfy, and super cute on.
Highly recommend them!

cute but some problems
I purchased two pair of speed tights cozy. One black with a multi pink waist and a pair in inkwell with a color-blocked waist. I almost immediately jumped in and wrote a 5 star review when I first got them and tried them on-then thought I better wear them a bit for a better picture.
First of all they are very cute, fit is very nice and the fabric feels amazing. I love the pocket, the ruching, the pull string at waist. I wore my black pair 3 times before I noticed pilling on the butt from sitting in the car driving! I wore them to a barre class once and we did about 5-10 mins of work on the ground and I left the studio with pilling on the knees. I washed them once and the pilling is that much worse. I just do not see how any high priced and high quality pair of pants can start pilling simply from sitting in a car driving to and from the studio.
Because of this I am very hesitant to do much with my inkwell pair, they do now have pilling on the bottom due to two car trips. I adore how they fit and look but the fabric does not stand up to use (or sitting). As for use for running-the intended use. I will say they tend to stretch out and ride down. I am constantly pulling them up.
I love Lululemon and I hate to write a mixed review. I have been disappointed over the past two years with the quality of the brand. I am a Pilates instructor and Lulu has been my uniform and that of my clients. I have noticed a large drift away to the loss of quality in the clothing. Hoping it gets better or prices go down.

Cozy running tights
I purchased the "Cozy" running tights which I believe is similar to the Interlock Power Luxtreme. The fabric is not very thick but they are so warm! Perfect for running in 40 degree weather! I am 5'9" and the length is perfect and I like the ruching. No problems with falling down, no problem with pilling and I have worn them at least 5 times now.

Run for the pills
First of all the sizing for these pants is weird. Extremely tight in the legs. I had to go up to a size 10 and I'm normally a 6 but I didn't think much of it. So the waist was not a fitted as I'm used to to begin with but after 1 wear the waist started to stretch even more, so now I'm constantly pull them up. Also these pants started to pill almost immiditely in the crotch area, top of the tighs and some other random areas that dont get alot of wear, before even washing them. Its a shame really, I purchased these pants because I thought they would be pefect for many winter activities and I love the side pockets but now they look 10 years old

Daughter received gift pair of leggings. They were not the right size however were needed and worn...post wash the pants have pilled (numerable places), stretched and simply look like poor quality product. Being aware of the ongoing issues presented by the press, I took the pants for return to 2 different locations, Square 1 & West Mall...worst rep experience ever...they have no interest in customer satisfaction and/or helping customers...1 sales attendant after hearing our story actually said "I can help you however, only if you want to make a purchase"!!! Great customer service!!
Premium prices for this poor quality product and no customer satisfaction. The reps seem ill trained with limited people skills to offer any resolution.
I remain available, if your company has interest in resolving complaint.

The 2nd time I wore these tights I pulled the drawstring to tie it & the stitching came undone & the whole drawstring came out. So disappointing to not be able to use these perfectly good (and cute) pair of tights -especially because I already have & love a pair I've been wearing a pair for over a year.

Too bad you can't test run pants...
I was so excited to use my bday gift card to buy the Speed Tight. I already have the Astro Pant which I love. Problem with the Speed Tight is the waistband! The pants tend to ride downwards unless you cinch them tight at the waist. As a result, you get the wrinkly potato sack look around your waist and discomfort. During my workouts I often have to pause to adjust the pants upwards because the crotch keeps dropping downwards. Disappointed I spent over $100 on pants that behave like pantyhose :(

Pilling at ankles, pockets, knees
I got these pants about a month ago, I've washed them maybe 3 times and they are already falling apart. Disappointed with the quality
