THese are the most comfortable capri length tights I own. I'm an althletic build with larger calfs, and they dont feel too tight anywhere, and still stay in place when running! I want another pair!

Super Comfy and Light!

I tried these on after receiving them today and haven't taken them off since! They are super comfortable although I was planning on wearing them for running and they are a little warmer and softer material than I was expecting. I'll probably end up using them more for yoga, climbing or running in slightly colder weather. They are so soft I may never take them off again!

These pants are tiiiight!

I use these lightweight leggings for so many activities—yoga, running, climbing, and as a base layer. They are thinner than many leggings I own, which I like. They are also so soft! My husband compliments on them every time I wear them! Some leggings I own tend to want to sag off my waiste after wearing them for a few hours. These have a handy stretchy tie on the inside! (Note: tie a bow in the tie before putting them in the wash or you’ll be re-threading them!) I’m eagerly awaiting more colors and patterns!
