Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cold weather running tights I wanted to continue running in the winter months and so grabbed a pair of these. So far they are working great in keeping me warm (in temps down to the low 40s) and being comfortable. They fit snug but don't feel restrictive or interfere with my stride/running. I'm definitely thinking about getting another pair. One thing, I am 5'11'' and 160ish lbs and I usually buy medium sized clothing. However in trying these on the large size seemed to fit better than the mediums - I have longer legs so that might be part of it. So it would make sense to try them on to ensure the appropriate size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got my hotpants... mmm! These are my first pair of running tights and I've been very happy with them. The fit relatively well, though the backside seems to ride on the low side. I have average junk in the trunk but maybe they're supposed to be low waisted. I'm not saying I want the equivalent fit of mom jeans, but maybe a bit higher fit. These tights keep me pretty warm and even did a decent job at repelling light rain even though they're not waterproof/resistant. I'd definitely consider another pair of these leg hugging sassy pants.
