Run: Get Up And Glow Tight
I am a lulu run tight addict and credit the star runner tight for many successful long runs. I was thrilled when the get up and glow tight was released and I loved the reflective stripes on the outside of the calves.
However, after 1 wash, ALMOST EVERY SEAM IS FRAYED. THE BOTTOM HEM IS UNRAVELING. All of this after 1 wear and 1 wash (on gentle cycle and hang to dry). Very disappointing.

These are the best running pants I have ever put on! I went back to buy a second pair and both stores by my house were sold out as was my size online. I love the new reflective material, all the pockets, the ruffle look on the leg is so feminine.
I found the crop version and look forward to running in them in warmer weather. I hope to see this style done again~

Love these! Hope they hold up.
Although I have worn these for hot yoga, I love them best for my distance running. They stay put. The waist fits me perfectly (I'm 5'4", 118, consistently size 4). I love the compression feature of this fabric. I have not found them to be see through at all. In fact I ordered a second pair!
I am a bit concerned about them holding up for the long term, as I have found some loose threads. Some other products that I have recently purchased from lululemon have had to be returned due to poor quality.
Keep making products like the Get Up and Glow Tight, and I'll remain a loyal customer!

I've been waiting for Lulu to have some run tights with pockets. Thank goodness I found some! I use my pockets like crazy when I run, so THANK you for this!
As for the pants, I normally wear a 6-8 in Lulus, but I don't live near a store. I wanted to snag these up while I had the chance, and I had read they ran small. I ordered a 10 to be safe, because I didn't want sheerness, and I knew they were fitted so it wouldn't really be a problem. Now, I wish I would have gotten an 8, because the 10s slip on my waist when I run. I feel like it's only because they're a bit big - I know a smaller size wouldn't slip.
Some of the threading is starting to come out, and I've only had these pant for about a month. I feel like the quality is good, and the fabric is great, but the way the pants were put together was a bit sloppy. Hopefully they can last and last, because after spending $100 on a pair of pants, I want to make sure they don't fall apart. I give these pants a 4 instead of 5 only because the threading seems to be coming out.
Are they worth a buy? Yes. They are the BEST to run in because of the fabric.
Are they true to size? Probably. I wish I would have ignored the comments on here that they ran small.

Love the pockets
These are great all-purpose running tights for me. I wore these for an 8-mile run and loved them. The fabric is so smooth, soft, and comfortable. I'm between a 6 and 8 in LLL and bought these in an 8. The waist is the tiniest bit tight, so they stay put. They are thin and I didn't have any trouble on a 20 degree day, but I'm not sure the material is substantial enough to be worn on runs much colder than that. I stayed cool on a 50 degree run as well. I love the pockets. My iphone 5 fits great in the rear pocket without the case, and the weight of the phone didn't cause them to fall down. I like to have my gu pack in one of the side pockets. Oh, and they're adorable! I'm a big fan :)

Let me start off by saying that I am a lulu addict and have been for years, I own many lulu products and promote them to everyone.
I bought these with the fresh teal side panels, and they are COMPLETELY SHEER on the sides. Not only can you basically see my skin through the sides of these pants, you cant see my underwear. I am limited to wearing no, or skin coloured underwear.
The fit is true to size, and flattering.
The colours and detailing are beautiful.
BUT the quality of the power luxtreme fabric is very disappointing.

I love these tights! I like being flashy during runs to make sure motorists see me and this definately do the trick! I love the side pockets. Big enough for me to slide a fuel belt bottle in them without the bottle bouncying around. I have run comforably in them to -6 c with a -15 C windchill, they did get a bit cold after 20 kms running in them but they are not winter tights so I wasn't expecting them to be. Can't wait to run in them again!

great running tights
i just wore these out for my first run in them, a 5K race. definitely OK for temps in the high 30s, low 40s, would probably work at colder temps too.
they're perfect. great fit. lots of pockets for keys, gels, GPS tracker, ID, bank card, etc... thinking of buying another pair.
i love the fact that the reflective fabric isn't overly bright, it fits in with the overall colour of the rest of the tights. now please make these in more colours!!!!

great tights for runners
I love these tights- I was worried about the reviews that said they were too tight, but they are actually true to size. In fact, I got a 6 (my usual lulu size) and felt that I could have gone down to a 4.
The handy pockets let me stash my keys, iPod and any other bits and bobs I might need. They stay up for the whole of my daily 5k run and are nice and long- as a 178cm tall girl, it's rare that I can say that!

First pair of tights = favorite winter gear!
These tights are precisely what I'd hope they'd be! They are extremely soft, warm, and breathable. With a similar fit and feel to the Run Inspires, they are a huge hit! These are great for running and other outside activities. These are true to size.
