Run: Toasty Tech Tight
These tights are so comfortable, I am so glad I bought them. First I purchased white floral top and as soon as I walked in them few minutes I ordered the blue floral top and I am so glad I did. Even though they are not as warm as I thought they will be , I took them for recent vacation to Breckenridge and had to wear another thin crops underneath. However they are SO COMFORTABLE ,the fit is amazing and they make your butt look great! This is one of the best purchases for me lately.Dear Lululemon, I would love to see them next winter.

I received these tights in the mail yesterday. Purchased them from the WMTM for $69 in black with the blue floral at the top. I am very happy with this purchase. I am 5'4' and 115 lbs for reference and bought size 4 and they fit perfectly and are super flattering! The waist comes up to just under my belly button. I don't plan on running in them but will use them on weekends for running errands, dog walking, etc. and expect them to be warm for that. I thought they would be a little bit heavier but am still pleased. They are very soft on both the inside and outside. The waist is fairly high but I don't mind it.

Love these! Not for very cold weather though...
When I first got these in the mail I put them on and my boyfriend immediately said, "WOAH, you look hot!"... Always a good thing! They are really beautiful pants. My only complaint is that they are not warm enough for the name they bear. I live in Vermont and it gets cold here. I ran in them during what I consider to be moderate winter temps (around 20 degrees Fahrenheit) and they weren't warm enough. However, Anything 30 degrees + (what I consider to be Spring weather) and they are totally fine. Love the way they look and feel though. They're quite spectacular.

Great Pair of Tights
I love these tights. They sit high, but stayed in place, and caused no chaffing on runs of 20+ km. I found they were good for temperatures down to about -10C (no windchill), but if there's wind or if it's colder, I layered it with the Bold in the Cold pants, and I was good for down about -25C. (I do run a bit warm though). For sizing, I'm 5'6, ~145lbs, 29 waist, and size 8 fit nicely.

These are OK.
For the price, I expected more. I like the pockets. These are not "toasty." They're ok for running in the 20-30F range, at least on a short run. My thighs (and butt) are still cold when I'm done. The fit is ok- very high-waisted (over my belly button - I'm 5'3"), they start to bag out in the knees after wearing for awhile. For reference, I'm an outdoor runner in Chicago. I'm unimpressed.

fit well and comfortable and sporty looking
These are very comfortable and fit well and have a sporty flattering look. I am between a 4-6 in pants and I went with a 6 based on the reviews and it is a good fit The waistband is quite snug but is very comfortable (doesn't dig in). I bought these to wear running or cycling and to wear under my snowpants boarding. I think these will work well for that. I like the pockets on the legs. These are comfortable and stay put.
I thought even the sale price was a little high even though I like them. I paid $89.
I don't consider these very warm, maybe it is relative as I am usually cold in general and my workouts tend to be on the lighter side or that I live in Northern Alberta. The description makes them sound quite warm.
I am not impressed with the no exchange/return policy on sale items. I was lucky in that these ended up fitting but it is too risky ordering online and I don't feel good doing it knowing I might be stuck with something. There should at least be a short exchange/credit only option. The sale items are marked down but are not cheap by no means.

Love the quality
I'm 5'1 and 115 lbs. I have these tights in a size 2.
I received these tights as a gift. My first thought before trying them on was that there was no way I could fit in these. They looked tiny. But then I put them on and was amazed at how much they stretch. I was also scared that the high waist would be uncomfortable when running as the waist band hits me at the belly button. I've now run in these for over a month and I love the fact that they never stretch out or get saggy and the high waist keeps the pants firmly in place. I'm actually thankful that these are high-waisted now. These tights are super comfortable and reasonably warm. I absolutely love them! I had to order a second pair because these are now my go-to winter running tights.

Excellent Winter Running in Canada.
I do a lot of running for charities and want to keep in GOOD shape and dread the treadmill every Winter, so this winter I wanted to do some winter running. I got these pants for Christmas and they fit perfectly!
For reference: I am 5'2", 117lbs, and waist 26" and bum/hips 34". I have quite a big and muscular butt so I fit a **Size 6** of these and they are snug in all the right places and are snug in the calves area. I get compliments on how nice they fit my frame, bum :) and legs. The high waist is perfect for attaching my iPod to in the winter so it doesn't get freezing and short out in power and for wearing shorter running jackets.
I have ran in these pants in -28 Celsius with the windshield (Plus I run at night usually ALL the time) and I STILL keep warm doing 3km to my 6km runs and visible; remember, keeping moving! :) These are perfect for running in any weather under -20 Celsius if you want to be comfy and don't want to risk cold thighs.
I think the size 6 allows more warmth for me because at feeling the fabric it feels rather thin for running out in the snow and cold, but I think the more fabric you have it traps in heat more.
Again, I watch hockey games here in town in the cold/unheated seat sections and they really keep me warm!!
Recommend them for distance runners and staying toasty in hockey games :)

nice comfortable leggings
I know these are made for cold weather. Well, I live in a warm climate where I wear shorts year-round for running. However I find these are perfect for wearing on the weekend...running errands... and generally wearing anytime I'd be wearing jeans. The fabric is perfectly stretchy and thicker than the WUs. Nice comfortable waistband, sits a bit higher on my waist which I like. They're on sale... so I bought 2 pairs in size 4. Am usually a Lululemon size 4 (5'4", 115lbs) and these fit true to size.

Perfect for So-Cal weather
there are a lot of review saying that these pants are not warm enough for 20 degree weather- well thankfully, So Cal does not have this problem. I wore these last night in low 50's and i was perfect. I have osteo arthritis that acts up when it is cold- but these pants kept my knees warm and feeling good on the run.
Unfortunately, the sizing is a little off where it starts off with the waist is tight but the legs are semi-tight. after wearing them for 30 minutes, everything was sagging. Bummer!
change the name from "tights" to something else. tights are meant to be tight!
