Features & Benefits:
Windproof panel on front to protect against the chill
These are really a hybrid garment-- a cross between a pant and a tight. They are very stylish and warm. I don't know what happened but mine do not have the pull tabs at the ankle as advertised. And they would be much better if they had an ankle zip for easier removal.
Be advised that these are not Gortex, and although they will buffer light rain your shins will sweat on the inside, so breathability in the front may be a minor consideration.
The leg length is fine, but my biggest complaint is that the rise is far too short, so they do not come up high enough on your tummy/waist area. Thankfully they are stretchy enough to accommodate a shapely booty. But again, I would classify this pant/tight as low-rise.
Superb, Slimming Fit and Comfort
I bought these because I liked the look and the fact that there are wind panels in the knee area--I am over 45 lets say and my knees need protection from the cold during my walks in winter. I played tennis in these indoors (bubble cold in mornings at times) in winter and LOVE them. My tennis buddies have all commented on the amazing fit and style and most importantly have all asked, "did you lose weight"? ha ha ha...I wish they made them in 30" inseam as I am 5'5" and need to roll them up but no worries...I LOVE THESE PANTS.
Staten Island, NY
love the fit and feel
Because I wear athletic pants to work every day I am very picky about the pants I buy. These are extremely flattering without being too tight. They are super comfortable as well. I am petite, size 0, and the XS fit perfectly except for the length. I can easily fold the hem up myself. They can be worn in the cold and inside as well. Even though they are thicker than the average pant they are still easy to move in. They are cozy, flattering and an all around great pant to have for colder weather!
Good winter running pants
Pants are warm enough to run outside in temperatures as low as 15 - 20 degrees. Wind-breaking fabric panel on front is effective and helps keeps thighs warmer. I am 5'8" and do not have a runner's build. I am curvy and have very muscular legs. I ordered an XL - they are plenty long enough, fit in the thigh and butt area, but are too big in the waist. Even so, at lease the draw string waist allows for cinching them up. I like the look of these pants and have received many compliments. Overall, a warmer alternative to tights.
Perfect cold weather wear
I am a 5'8" and a size 8 jeans. The medium is a great fit. The length of these pants covers the top of my foot and the back of my heel, which I love to keep my feet from getting too cold out in the 19 degree weather I've been running in! The front panels are protective, comfortable and wind resistant, however, they are sweaty when you stop to cool down. I usually have to get them off right away. Also, I do not love the draw string, but it's functional. All in all, a great cold weather running pant.
I LOVE these pants! They are perfect for heading out on an early-morning or otherwise chilly aerobic walk with the dog. They are flattering, yet I feel like I'm wearing baggy sweats. Comletely appreciate the way they stave off the cold, although, when it was 30 degrees and we were headed to the blustery west-winded beach, it did feel good to add a thin silk layer underneath. Would buy these again in a heartbeat.
Amanda Loves the Outdoors
I am usually a warm person so I have a hard time finding comfortable athletic pants that are not just lightweight knits. However, I can wear these all day long and not have a problem. I have a pair from 10years ago that I recently discovered and LOVED wearing them so much I went looking at Road Runner to see if there was still anything like them. VOILA!!! I am just as happy with this pair as my original.
Just bought these pants today. They feel nice and warm and snug without being uncomfortable like some other wind resistant tights I've tried. The front wind panels extend all the way from hip to ankle which adds protection for the whole leg. The bag stretch material is extremely comfortable and easy to move in. I like the long reflective stips down both sides. I can't wait to get out and actually run in them!
Great for Northwest Running
I bought these for cold, raining, windy days up here in the Puget Sound area. They work great for that, but are also not oppressively hot when the weather is mild. The fabric is soft and comfortable against my skin, even after working up a sweat.
These ran a little long for me at 5'2", but the drawstrings in the hems keep the bottoms from dragging the ground. Otherwise the fit is great and flattering.
Dont go by sizing chart
i went by the sizing chart and I got a medium it was way too big, should have gotten a small. Im 5'0, 123lbs and normally wear small/size 2-4 jeans or dress pants. i couldnt return it since it was past 30 days but i still wore it. ran trails in 29 degree weather and it was perfect! nice and thin to run the trails yet it kept my legs nice and warm.
Fort Wayne, IN
Great for Cold Weather
I've been using these to run in the morning in Rochester and they're perfect. These are actually wind-proof unlike other pairs of tights I've bought in the past and the fit is close enough that I don't get a draft coming through the leg openings but still not constricting. Love these pants!
Running and Warmth
I love these pants for running outside when it is cold out. They have an extra layer on the front side of the pants for wind resistance. I live in Wyoming and like to run outside as much as possible and these pants allow me to do so even in the winter. They are a great weight and not too heavy for running.
Runs Like the Wind
These pants are great for winter running and walking. They're stretchy enough to fit a base layer underneath in really cold or windy weather (esp for walking, not needed so much for running). My pair is 5 years old and going strong. It'd be great if newer versions included pockets.
They do say 'wind-front' pants
These are comfortable pants that do block some wind when you are running into the wind. However, when the wind is at your back, your legs may get quite cool. For me, they work best in temperatures around 35-45. They were not very warm in temps under 35 and lots (15-25 mph) wind.
Great pants for multiple uses!
Great pants to wear over running tights when it's below 10 degrees, or over yoga tights for to and from yoga in the cold. I haven't worn them on their own yet for running because I prefer tights, but I'm sure they'd be fine.
They are also really flattering!

My FAVORITE pants
These are my absolute favorite pants to work out in and just wear around the house. I wear them running when it's cold out, and they are stretchy enough for me to stretch in. I've even done yoga in them a couple of times. I really want another pair!
Excellent cool running pants.
I needed a cold and foul weather pant that was not like a snowsuit. This fits the requirements perfectly. A bit long but the drawstring ankles solve that problem for me. I bought a pair for my taller sister as she usually has trouble finding a good lenghth for her long legs.
My favorite pants!!
This is such a great pair of pants that I'm ready to buy a second pair! I thought they would be a bit noisy due to the wind panel, but they're not. They fit perfectly and make me look like a 'real' athlete!
A great winter pant!
I bought these for winter running and I love them. They are comfortable, warm, and very flattering. The only downside is that they run long and I am very short (5'3).
Park City, UT
Love These Pants!
I love these for early morning runs. I do add a base layer (temps around 25-30 degrees), but they are very comfortable and keep me warm.
These pants are very comfortable and warm. I love how they kind of hug your thighs. I wore them on a day I probably didn't really need this much warmth but didn't overheat.
Only the tall should buy!
Good for taller person. The drawstrings are helpful, but not when there is a good extra 6 inches of material to cinch up!
I like them for cool days but not super cold which I thought they would be for. Fits fairly snug in thighs. Look nice on
Happy with this purchase.
Great pants. stylish and flattering fit. Warm as well as water resist.
Very Nice Pant
Good fit and very comfortable.
