Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, great value I have many different pairs and brands of yoga pants, all capris or full-length leggings. This is my first pair of REI leggings, purchased on sale. At sale price, it is a steal, and at regular price it is still a good value (especially compared to other brand's pricing). The fit is great, the fabric is not see-through and strong, and the look is flattering. I normally get size Small in all my yoga leggings, however I wanted some extra 'leg room' and ordered a Medium, which I am happy with (5'7", 130#). The stay put (other reviews said they fall at the waist? No problem) and stretch well and dry quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Comfortable Pants EVER After having a baby and gaining some weight, I've been having a difficult time finding comfortable pants that don't make me look like a behemoth. Exercise pants can be especially unforgiving when you have thighs that jiggle and a butt that won't stop. However, these pants are SO comfortable and they smooth out my legs, which means they do not showcase my "cottage cheese" thighs. They move every way you need them to. I am currently buying a pair in every color so I never have to wear anything else after work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They're Not See-Thru! I have two pairs of these now because I like them so much. They are thick enough so you can't see through them when you bend over. They have a good amount of compression to keep all of my "loose" parts nice and tight and contained. I sweat A LOT, and I love that you can't see wet spots on these pants ever (I only buy black). The fit is good, although I do find that I prefer the fit tight (size M for 5'6"/160#), they can occasionally start slipping in the waistband. Other reviewers have suggested a size up, so that may be the key to keeping them from falling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thick and comfy If you're looking for some leggings that have good coverage, keep things in place and are easy to move around in, these are perfect. I'm 135 lbs, 5'4 and bought the smalls. I did try on the mediums, and I think I might have been a little happier with the larger size for when I go running in them, just cause the slightly tighter fit makes them slide down just a bit. But overall, I love these. They come up to just under my belly button. I mostly wear them to the gym to lift weights, or for walking around running errands.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to love these, but... These pants would be great if I were 6 feet tall, but sadly I'm not. Pros: material is so soft, and thick enough to wear with no show-through concerns. the overall shape is nice, waist is high enough to stay up, but not too high. Cons: these are just built on a huge scale. After 3 barre classes, two washes (no dryer) they're baggy in the seat, waist and crotch want to sit a couple of inches lower than when new. I'm super short so I'm used to overlong pants, but the legs are now almost to my ankles. A smaller size? I might if I run into a sale, but the material is comfortably sized in the thighs and hips, so might be too stretched. Upshot? If you're tall and curvy they're probably great, but if you're short and rubanesque, (ehem) I wouldn't recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Capri Tights Mixed Love the color and the thickness of tights. However, using them for barre classes where up and down movement is the norm, I felt self conscious about the backside slipping/sliding down. Wish there was a more firm waistband.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these are great! I have gone through a lot of capris in my time... These stay put on long runs. No sliding down and pulling up the waist here! The rise is a bit lower than some 'other' brands, it rise is below the belly button but high enough to flatter. At 5' an XS hits me just below mid calf. I love these so much that I have proceeded to buy every color and toss my expensive pairs. I pretty much wear these every day now, whether it's with my running shoes or a cute pair of booties.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! Used these pants as my base layer on the John Muir Trail, they kept my legs warm at night, were comfortable to hike in, and made me feel attractive!

I love this item--the fit, fabric, and waistband. Is there an ankle-length version of this product?

Asked by: amandac23
A full length version of the Co-Op Tech Capris is not currently available.

The description says capri, but the specs say a 29" inseam. Are these more like cropped pants? I'm looking for something on the shorter side. Other capris are usually 19-20" inseam. What is the actual inseam length on these pants?

Asked by: outdoormama
​The inseam is 22 inches.

Do these tights have a pocket big enough to hold a phone?

Asked by: CocoB
The ​Co-Op Tech Capris have one pocket the size of a bank card.
