Speed Tight *Luxtreme
Great fit, super comfortable
These are another, TTS, great running tight. I love the slide pockets on the leg - perfect for snuggly holding your phone or music player...or a nice hand-warmer while you're not moving.
I ran in these for the first time yesterday- it was about 30 degrees, maybe less. They kept me warm and dry! Highly recommend.

Bad quality tights
I received a pair of these tights for Christmas and I absolutely loved them, until I washed them in cold water and noticed that they are pilling. This is the first time I've experienced pilling on any of my lulu tights, and I've had my other pairs for 2+ years, so I am very disappointed. I love the fit of these tights, but there is pilling everywhere!

love on the first look but sad on the second
I loved this pants when I tried them on! Perfect fit, just felt awesome.
But after one day I realized that the upper part of the pants gets lints all over. Also the seams look like the roughening already?! I washed it after 2 times of wearing and after low temp wash and low temp dry the lints were still all over :( Does look like its 1 year of wearing every day after just 2 times. Very upset. Not the quality I expected...

Speed Tight Lux...Dud
My hubby got these for me as a Christmas gift. Amazing looking, until I bent over and could see my polka dot underwear through the see-through fabric. Yikes Lulu. Isn't this why your stock plummeted?? I called the a local store, explained the situation, and they took them back for store credit. Thanks for standing by your products!!

Nice fit, but pilling is terrible!!!
I recently received these tights for my birthday in January. I am a D1 college runner in Boston, so I needed a pair of tights that would withstand the cold and also be comfortable on my daily 8-10 mile runs. The first three times I wore these tights, I was extremely pleased with the fit. However, after washing them only twice; cold water machine washed with only lulu running apparel and air dried, they are already pilling. I could not believe it because all of my other lulu tights and crops I've had for years have hardly any pilling! The pilling is right around the hip area just above the pockets, so I do not really understand how just running in these tights could have caused this type of pilling. It is definitely a quality issue. As an avid runner who has trusted lulu quality for years, I am going to be rethinking any future purchases here.

Love these but they do fall down while running
I bought this pants as I'm training for a marathon and wanted a good pair of long running leggings. I feel in love with the power luxtreme fabric of my run inspire crop II so I went ahead and bought the speed tight luxtremes in the brisk bloom print. Love the print and couldn't be happier with the look and feel of these pants. Also, love the side pockets. My iphone fits perfectly in them which makes working out at the gym much easier. The only thing that disappoints me is the way they fall down when I run. I don't think that issue is due to the fabric as my run inspire crops are of the same material and do not fall down. Maybe a design flaw? I do still love these leggings but I now wear them more for weight training and cardio at the gym instead of long runs outside. For reference, I am 5'5 123 lbs I am usually in between a size 4 and a size 6. I bought a size 4 in these pants.

LOVE these pants for hot vinyasa
Bought these in the brisk bloom color and absolutely LOVE everything about them - the streamlined fit, the silkiness of the fabric, the thinness and the super moisture wicking abilities. Most comfortable tights ever for hot yoga. So much cooler temperature wise than the wunder unders, skinny wills, grooves, astros, city pulse pant and everything else I own! I also LOVE the flat pockets even though I probably would never use them, and the super cute ruffles at the bottom. Went back to buy the blue pair, but they are already sold out in my size. :-( Hope LLL comes out with more colors in this particular fabric.

Why so big?
I've got to say I'm pretty upset. I bought these after being talked out of buying another pair of wunder unders for running. The sales girl told me that she's had more problems with her wunder unders falling down on her runs and that she loved the speed tights. They are super comfy so I bought the luxtreme and the tech. HUGE MISTAKE.
I was going to buy the size 4 but the sales girl convinced me to buy the 6. I'm 5ft6in and weigh between 118-120lbs.
While these fit very comfortably in the store when I take them out for my run I have to cinch the waistband super tight to keep them up. The drawstring is starting to get a little angry with me (and I've only taken them on a few runs). I'm honestly not sure how much longer these will last me and I've only had them about a month.
When it comes time to buy a new pair of running pants I'm going to shop elsewhere. Super disappointed with the customer service and durability of lulu.

And the poor quality control continues...
These are not AT ALL like other pairs of Luxtreme speeds I've purchased. They run HUGE and the rise is way too high. The waistband isn't tight at all, unless I pull them down to the widest part of my hips, resulting in horrible bagginess everywhere else. Despite being too big overall, the seam running around the thigh is tight tight tight and really unflattering. Not compressive, and feel thinner than other pairs I own. I purchased my normal size 4 and am hesitant to size down, since the Luxtreme material is already shiny and somewhat thin. The pattern doesn't stand out to justify the possible awkwardness/annoyance of the fit - I can't really even imagine wearing these casually, much less for athletic pursuits given the fit issues.

I bought these so that I could run in very cold temperatures in Maine. I wore these during the "cold snap" these last two weeks or so, and was reasonably warm considering it was -10 degrees C outside. They fit well, they're comfortable and they looks sweet. I would give these a perfect score, except for one major problem. I had read a review beforehand that said the "Luxtreme" fabric pills very quickly, but I didn't want to believe it... Sure enough, after wearing them 5 or 6 times and washing them only ONCE according to the tags instructions and there is already evidence of pilling and fraying on the butt where my shirt hangs.... VERY disappointing.. I can't believe such an expensive pair of pants would show evidence of wear already.... I will be returning them. Perhaps the other speed tight fabrics are not so fragile? I dont know..
