REI Airflyte Running Tights - Women'sis rated4.3333out of5by6.
Rated5out of5byfromwonderful!These fit great - especially the waistband, which is very flattering. I want to wear these everywhere! I did wear them for a 3-mile run when it was right around 30 degrees and came back with very frozen legs, but for slightly warmer temperatures (mid-high 30s) they've been warm enough. They provide enough room for movement but aren't baggy. Love them!

Rated4out of5byfromGreat running tights!They bunched up a little at the bottoms, but I am 5'1" so that was to be expected. Fortunately the zippers pretty much fix that problem. They fit me really well on top.

Rated5out of5byfromExcellent Running TightsI just wore these tights out running. They kept me warm enough for a January run, yet still comfortable. I usually wear a size 14 and the large running tights fit perfect. I am also 5'6" and found the tights to be just the right length. I am considering buying a second pair since they were such a great deal!

Rated5out of5byfromHighly RecommendI needed long running tights, and wasn't very happy with my usual brand. I saw this in an email, and decided to try it out. I am usually a Large (in the other brand), but it ran a bit too big on my 5' 2", 160 lb frame. I exchanged them for Medium ones, and they are just perfect. I run in these tights, on the trail, and indoors. I also like to lounge in them. They are VERY comfortable. I was a bit apprehensive about the waistband not having a drawstring, but I don't miss the drawstring in these tights - a nice, wide, and comfortable waistband. Love them. Bought them for loved ones. HIGHLY recommend.

Rated5out of5byfromWarm and comfortableI needed a pair of warmer pants for cold-weather running. Since I live in Hawaii I didn't want anything really expensive. I tried a number of pants and decided on these. They fit really well. I have a boy-like shape & often pants are styled for a more curvy body & the waistband cuts into my gut. These have a nice style, nice wide waist band so they're really comfortable. I haven't had a chance to wear these in the cold but they feel really warm. I like that they are fitted down to the ankle to keep cold air from blowing up the pantlegs.

Rated2out of5byfromodd fitI got these because I have a pair of the Airflyt capris and love those, and was looking for something longer for colder weather. Sadly, the fit on these is not working. While most of the pants I own tend to be long on me, these are about 1-2 inches shorter than what I would expect. I actually have a little gap between the bottom of the tights and my socks, which is uncomfortable in the cold. In addition, the ankles are really baggy. I don't know why they have zippers as they are so loose I can easily pull them over my heels/ankles without unzipping. The waist/hip area is also larger in these than in the same size of the capris, and the cut is odd. They seem to continually slip down and have extra fabric in the crotch area. The back pocket sits lower than in the capri cut, so much so that when I put an ipod in the pocket it seems to be sitting very low and is uncomfortable, instead of resting at the top of the sacrum. I end up tugging these up during my run and have stopped putting the ipod in the pocket just to avoid having it pull them down further. All in all, I am disappointed in these and really just want a pair cut like the capris in full length. I don't think a smaller size would work, since these are already too short. I usually don't return things that I've worn, but I may be testing out REI's return policy on these, since after several runs the verdict is these just aren't working out.
