I bought these because I wanted a compression tight that wasn't quite as compressive as the CW-X, but with a bit more support than the Nike running capri. I read the reviews that stated this had compression. I called CS to talk about the product and sizing of the product because I fall right between a size small and medium at 5'6" and 138 lbs with a size 28" waist and 39" hips. Unfortunately the CS rep could offer me no more information on the product than what was on the website and asked a female colleague about the product and relayed that I should size up. I also asked about the compression, he assured me this was a true compression tight. Wrong on both accounts. CS was great when I called, exchanged for a small which fit. I'll keep though because they are cute and work fine for cross training and gym workouts, but this is not a compression material and is a bit on the thin side. If you want a compression capri that isn't as high tech as the CW-X (which I have and love, but sometimes want a little less technical product for a shorter race) spend the money and buy the lulu lemon compression capris. I would recommend these for anyone looking for a cute and comfy basic capri with a little more pizzaz than the basic black capri.
I run about 4-5 days a week, 40+ miles per week, cross train about 2 times a week.
These are winners
I have been running for a couple of years and have learned that I like compression pants and shorts. But, since I'm not a competitive runner and don't run high mileage, paying a lot of money for the big brand names isn't justified. These capris are great! I don't buy things based on whether they look cute, but I must confess, these look cute! The fabric feels substantial and is supportive enough for me. The pocket in the back might be too small for an MP3 player but has room for a key and money. The reflective accents (such as on back pocket zipper) are nice and not too obvious.
These feel so nice!
My first pair of capris in 13 years of running... how did I live without them for so long? The fabric feels wonderful and the fit is really comfortable. I have not used the pocket yet but may be handy for 20 milers.
This is my first pair of running tights, and I'm very pleased with this purchase. The Pro Velocity seemed thicker and more substantial than the Velocity. These tights provide support yet move with me. Love 'em.
Love these tights!
I was looking for a replacement to some Nike running tights that didn't fit very well - these fit the bill. I am normally a size 6; howeve, needed a XS in these tights-they run a little big. Very comfortable
love to run
Great looking capir
Currently I wear these in the gym, lifting weights. When I recover from a foot injury I'll wear them for running. They fit great, hit aren't too long, and look great.
A little too long for me
I liked these capris but they were too long for me (5 ft 4, 125 lb). They looked like tights, but I was hopin for capris that ended just past my knees for warmer weather. Very nice though.
fit is true to size. I just got these this week and love the feel, not to tight but not too loose. Love these !!
Favorite workout pants
I love these Capri. The fit is very comfortable. I purchased three pair almost three years ago and they are still in great condition. The newest pair just purchased have a bit more support, but I typically workout five days a week and wear them after my workout if I have to run errands. I wish they still made these. I especially think they would look great in black with a white stripe or in place of the neon colors make them with fun primary colored stripes on side of legs. Please bring these back!!!!
Perfect on a warmer day
These are perfect on days when I want support and a little more coverage, but full length tights are just too much.
I love these! The price was right and I love the fit so much I ordered another pair. The drawstring is a bit annoying, but they fit so well I just removed it. The rear pocket is alittle tricky to get my key ( only one car key) into but this is not bad since the tight fit keeps the key from bouncing around. I am very pleased with this purchase! For reference, I am 5'2", 110 lbs and I ordered an xsmall.
Favorite Capri Tights
I bought 4 pairs with different accent colors. These capris wash and wear quite well, and the xs fits my 5ft 3in, 115 pound frame without looking too long. The only issue is that the drawstring is not long enough and the ends always get lost in the waistband when putting them on and getting them on past my hips. My hips aren't THAT wide. I end up pulling out the drawstring and have to replace it with a longer cord.

Flattering, but needs more compression
These capri's are very comfortable and flattering on. However, I like a bit more compression - to hold in the "giggle".
I have the CW-X 3/4 and Brooks infinity capri, but think these (RRS pro velocity capri) are the most comfortable. I'm definitely going to wear them as a layering piece for skiing.
Overall, I'm happy and would recommend.
Good compression. I like the style and length. I would definitely buy another pair!
I wear these for a variety of gym activities and running. they are comfortable and supportive and cute. wash beautifully. I ordered a size up because I have trouble keeping low rise pants "up" and sizing up gives me enough room to get them closer to my waist where they will stay put.
I bought these tights thinking they are compression pants, but they are not, so they felt a little loose. Since they are not compression pants, I think they fit just fine. I don't know if these are cold-weather tights since I have purchased just recently but they are comfortable for cool morning run.

Great look and fit
I got these in black with wild orchid (pinkish purple) stripe. The fit is amazing... I'm 5'3" and a curvy 125lbs.... so, I tried them in SMALL and XSMALL and both fit well. (I choose the XS, in the end.)
The look better than the pic online or in the paper catalog.

I absolutely love to run in this tight. Really comfortable and the color insert is very slimmimg.
Sleek and perfect fit
Great pair of capris for running. They are light and form fitting.
Great capri but...
I like these capris and wear them often but.. I hate the drawstring in them. It was constantly popping out every time I put the pants on. They are also a little longer then I would have liked.. but thats just because I like mine to fit right under the knee.

Meh, so so
For the price these tights are alright, but I agree with other reviews about them being on the thin side material wise. Wore them on a longer run and the ends of the zipper of back pocket rubbed my skin, left a couple raw spots. Other than that they were comfy.
Love these capris they fit and look great!! I only wish the zipper pocket in back was bigger. I wore them for a half marathon and they were superb, so much so that I have two pairs!

I bought these for my girlfriends birthday. She had been wearing a pair of Adidas tights exclusively, but she has not worn them since. I think that means she likes them.

Wore these for the first time outside today for a 3 mile run. Weather was 48-50 degrees and sunny. Can see how they may become too warm in higher temps. Very comfortable
Just what I wanted!
I like the comment section that's available to read before I order. I know whether to order a size up or down.[...]

Great tight for the price
Great tight for outdoor running
The best are a nice comfortable fit, but do not deliver the compression level that is advertised.
Great product for the price
I used this nearly on a daily basis for my workout and I used this on my half marathon.
flattering design, really comfortable
The material is really soft and stretchy. They fit great thanks to the drawstring at the waist.
Quite reasonable at the sale price! Cute design.
