Rated 1 out of 5 by Luwin from Great pair of tights - but durability/quality is questionable LOVED these tights! AT FIRST. =( They are a great fitting tight, and feel wonderful and the stretch and movement of them are great. But after just two washes (line dry), the stitching on the seam on the left cuff at the ankle is unraveling. For the price of these, I would expect better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by figureskaterboi from 10/10 Tights On Ice These tights are amazing. This is the first pair of compression-anything that I've ever bought, and I'm in love with them. I figure skate, and these work phenomenally on the ice. I feel like I'm jumping higher and spinning faster with these. They're so lightweight and flow with my body so well that I forget I'm wearing them. I just ordered another pair online, and I can't wait till they arrive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RunTC from A nearly perfect men’s athletic tight Full-time runner. Part-time yogi, biker & Nordic skier. I’ve been jealous of my wife’s Lululemon yoga pants and tights for years. After chaffing through run after run in scratchy, poor-performing tights by other apparel companies, I nearly swallowed my gender ego and purchased a pair of tights from your women’s line, but the construction of the crotch area in women’s tights just didn’t seem like a good match for my anatomy. Enter the Tight Stuff Tight. I found it! A nearly perfect men’s athletic tight. Now guys can fully reap the benefits of Lululemon technology, and make ladies jealous for a change. I am 6’0 with a slim, athletic build. I found the medium size was a perfect length and fit. The tights are modest enough to wear by themselves for all athletic activities—meaning no shorts on top. However, I would feel a bit self-conscious wearing them to a post-workout brunch with friends or to walk my kid to school—for that I would put a pair of something like the liner-less T.H.E. Shorts on top to cover up. I wear these tights for outside runs in Minnesota fall and spring temps. I suspect that in areas without Arctic extremes, these tights will get you through the winter, too. (In Minnesota, I have to switch over to Nordic ski gear for outdoor running in the extreme cold, but I can still use these tights as a base layer.) I also wear the Tight Stuff Tight for yoga, strength training and spin/biking. To prevent chaffing on runs, and for added privacy in a yoga class, I wear a pair of Lululemon’s Game On Boxer Brief underneath the tights. The combo works well for me. When wearing briefs underneath, the hemline does show just a little bit, but it almost looks like it’s just part of the tights’ design. Other guys may care more about the aesthetic than I do, so I only share this for informational purposes to other buyers, not as a critique. You could go commando under the tights, if that suits you better, but I am not sure I would run a marathon without some kind of added lining. I wish the tights had had a small key pocket or pouch in the waistband, either on the side or in the front. I really appreciate the zippered, back pocket in the Surge Tight (DWR). I can see why the Tight Stuff Tight may not have that same feature to keep the back smooth for rolling on the mat. However, as a runner, I need a place to stash a house or car key when and I like the idea of an open side pocket for that. Many of the tights in your women's line seem to have creative waistband storage options--maybe there's a way to pull them into the men's line? I greatly appreciate that the Tight Stuff Tight does not have zippered leg openings—zippers just tear up your skin on long runs or when rolling around on the mat. I would purchase additional pairs if they were available in more lengths (7/8, 3/4 & half) and color options (dark navy, charcoal, black currant, black grape, dark olive, etc.)—anything in a non-patterned, darker shade should help disguise the bulge. I own a pair of the Surge Tight (DWR) and the Tight Stuff Tight. This review is similar to my review of the Surge Tight (DWR), but I tried to note my take on the different features.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rkfitness from Stitching already coming undone! I am a big Lulu guy. I want to love all of their products but after one wash my stitching has already started to become undone. I will be a customer for life and hope that Lulu comes out with better leggings for men.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vancitysports from Almost Perfect Until …. Loved them at first. However, the first time I washed them, some seams already started coming apart. I've exchanged them once already, but seem to have the same problem. You would think spending $138 you would be guaranteed good quality. Really Disappointed

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrTekles from Close to Perfect Love these tights! They're snug and comfortable, and feel great for yoga or CrossFit. I feel that I get the support/compression I need without discomfort or needing to move or adjust anything. I also get enough warmth in cooler weather, but still can comfortably wear it for hot yoga. Now, I actually prefer the design of the surge tights (with pockets), but the fit of the Tight Stuff Tights. If you could combine the two, it'd be great. Also, the lack of seams on the butt panel look a tad odd to me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Danimals from Leggings not tights? These are pretty comfortable, especially if you like the luxtreme fabric, however, as far as the compressive factor goes they lose that property after a few wears/wash cycles. Currently sitting in them after 3 washes and trips to the gym and they've become pretty light on the held in feel you would expect from compression tights. At this point, they're more or less just next to skin leggings which don't really ofter any compression - which is okay if that's what you're looking for - but if you're looking for something that maintains its tightness look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jakelemon from Great Tight - Worth It - Read if Debating Purchase! I'll start off buy saying I am 5'9" and weight 150lbs and wear a size small. I got the small given that with my height the medium would have been a little too long for me. I was debating purchasing these just because I didn't know if I would utilize them enough and boy was I WRONG! These are the best compression pants in the game! They are very tight in all the right place and not too hugged on the gents. These are the first pair of compression pants that I own and I never would even consider buying another brand for a couple reasons. The overall appearance of them is really nice and is not too flashy or out there. I use them for all types of activities and even occasionally as an under sweats wear when it is extra cold outside. I noticed on other reviews that some people had problems with the stitching but I have yet to have that issue (fingers crossed). The material is strong and great for all types of activities including but not limited to: cycling, running, lifting, squatting, lounging, and more. My ONE and ONLY concern with these is now that I have a pair in the black I want another pair but in another color (HINT HINT LULULEMON DESIGNERS, INDOCHINE BLUE) because I have seen some other tights such as the Surge Tight that came in a indochine blue color and unfortunately didn't get them in time before they sold out. Other than that, the tight stuff is tight and I would purchase again in another color and definitely would recommend these to not only a friend but even a stranger!

Rated 2 out of 5 by EmeraldChief from Wanted to love these, but... I bought two pairs of these to wear to the gym. Initially they were great, but after just two washes the seams along the hip started to unravel...a lot. Disappointing considering lululemon usually makes such a great stuff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by fkalines from LOVE/HATE I absolutely adore these tights for lifting because I feel they give me just enough compression. However, I have exchanged these 4 times already in a span of 8 months because the seams keep falling apart. Thankfully, the people at the St. Catherine store in Montreal have been so lovely and haven't hesitated in helping me exchange my Tight Stuff Tights; however, I definitely feel like a pain because today, it's going to be my 5th time going in with an issue.
