sweat-wicking with four-way stretch, this fabric's interlock construction gives great support and coverage with a cool, smooth feel
why we made this
Like a Greatest Hits album, these run tights compile our favourite features from the past. Optional reflectivity in the cuff can be flipped up to help keep us visible, deep side pockets are easy to access mid-stride and our signature three-pocket waistband keeps our gels close at hand. We sense a new #1 hit.

The reason i did not give these a 5 star is due to the fact that i prefer no rushing on the lower leg, that said these tights are wonderful nice and thick i love the height of the waistband no muffin top w/ it at all, it goes to just under my belly button. I got the dark cole w/ the vint. pink zip. Sure wish they'd put out a crb in vintage pink! I am getting them hemmed to a 26 in. inseam so they will rest just above my ankle bones- my favorite length. I will get lots of use from these as i will use them for weight training mostly and for yoga. btw the seaming on the rear makes it look smaller always a plus ;).

I got the brushed interlock version of these tights as a gift, tried them on, and fell ÷in love immediately. SO flattering and great colors, mine are a pretty grey/blue color. However, when I took them out on a run the crotch had slid down after just a block! The drawstring isn't much help either. Maybe it's my body type? I am 5'4" 135 lbs and went with a size 6. I think sizing down would have been much too tight in the legs.

This was my very first lululemon purchase. I was so excited to finally see what all the fuss was about. I loved the store experience, and I love how these pants look while standing still. BUT they totally fall down while running. I recently had a baby, so have a little belly pouch, and after just two steps, the pants will have slid down so low, and having my stomach poking out while running is distracting and embarassing - especially as I am getting used to a post-baby body. Lululemon, I want to love you, but this was a whole lot of wasted money!!

Left the store loving the way these fit! Thought they would be great for running- snug, flattering around the middle, useful pockets, drawstring, etc. The store rep assured me I had the right size on. Wore them around the house and to run errands, and I was super happy. THEN..... I ran in them for the first time. It was like they couldn't wait to slide down to the ground. I paused to tie the drawstring- assuming that would help- but no success. Wish I could exchange these $100 pants for a smaller size. Guess they will be good for grocery shopping. Meh

Love length/fabric, but bunching at knees
I bought these last week and wore them for my 7 mile run in Boston this past weekend (28F, 22F with windchill).
The positives were that the fabric kept my legs nice and toasty, which is something I have been struggling with this winter in every other pair of full-length leggings I own. I also really like the thickness of the fabric (NOT see through), the length of the pant (at 5'6" I can tuck them under my socks to keep my ankles covered if I want), and the more compressive feel of the pant compared to my Inspires. I also liked the height of the waistband and, of course, the zipper pocket.
The only negative I have is that the pants bunch at my knees. I am not sure if this is a product of the pant's cut/the thickness of the fabric or of the fact that my legs are crooked and bow out a bit below my knees. I think it may be a combination of both, since I do not have this problem in any other running tights that I can think of. I tried to tug the pants up to resolve this issue, but that left a lot of excess fabric at the crotch area, which was less comfortable than the knee bunch. Ultimately, the knee bunching did not do any damage to my skin or otherwise hinder my ability to complete my run -- it was just annoying, but not annoying enough to rank below 4 stars as I will definitely continue wearing them for the rest of the winter.

Must have tights
I was nervous about ordering these online. Most of the reviews were mentioning sizing down or having issues with them slipping down when running. I decided to drive (60 miles) to the nearest lulu store to try them on. I am so glad I did. I am 5"2" -120# and normally wear size 6. I purchased the size 4 and they are perfect!! Highly recommend them-just size down. :)

Pilling and Poor Fit
I wanted to like these, I really did (though I am reviewing the fleece-lined version; I can't seem to find them on the site). They were recommended to me by the educator for the cold winter weather. When I took them home after the first day, they were sliding down around the crotch. The waistband was tighter than usual on lulu pants, and it seemed to be obvious that it was because they start to fall down soon after wearing them... so somehow, they needed to stay up. I persevered and thought I'd give them a chance. After no more than a few wears, the entire pants were pilling! Not just around certain areas, but all along the legs!
Now I want to return them obviously but I've had issues with the store here not accepting back seasonal items. :/

Wanted to like these
I loved everything about these pants except that they felt stiff & too tight in the backs of my knees (and I have skinny legs). I really thought that they would chafe there as I wore these so I returned. Maybe if I had wore them & washed them they would have loosened up a little?? Not sure and was afraid to take the chance. Other then that, I loved everything about these & was sad to send them back. The fit was TTS, I'm 5' 6" 140 lbs and took my usual Lulu pant size 6.
