Women's ROAD RUNNER SPORTS TIGHT RACE COMPRESSION 17" CAPRI :: Readysetgofor great support and stylish comfort when you workout in the Women's Road Runner Sports Tight Race Compression 17" Capri. You'll fall in love with the muscle-supporting compression and ultra-soft, sweat-busting fabric. Plus, you'll be far ahead of the rest in both performance and style thanks to this capri's high-fashion printed design.
I've worn these tights twice now - once trail running and once on a longer run - and have washed them twice. It has retained its shape and compression after washing, and during the runs I found them very supportive, not restrictive. They feel great on a run - not too tight, but still compressive. I've worn and own many other brands of compression tights/capris, and by far this is the most comfortable by far. The rise on the pants is just right (just below belly button) and stays put on the run. Also, I bought them because I love the print/design (yay! not black!) and get many compliments on them from others. I would recommend others give them a try - you won't be disappointed.
The back seam hurts!
I was so excited when I received these! The compression is REALLY great! The only problem is that the legs are sewn together with three seams: one on the inside of the leg, one on the outside, and one down the back of the leg. The one down the back of the leg hurt so bad in the fold of the back of my knee. I couldn't stop thinking about it... just hurt and annoyed me.
Sadly I only ran 3.5 miles because of it.
These pants are CUTE! The compression is GREAT! The seam is the deal breaker. I was going to buy the other color scheme... glad I ran in them first before I made the purchase.

These tights are a great alternative to boring black or gray running attire. Be aware that the citrine color on the web picture is not the true color on the pants. It is more of a mint green--still fabulous. The recommended top they show on the Outfits page is the perfect match. Lightweight material makes longer runs nice. Fabric is also breathable making for a more comfortable workout. A touch see through, but I wear my tops longer, so no issue there.
I bought these pants on sale for their jazzy color pattern, and that's where my love for them ends.
I am a small gal and not particularly bootylicious (maybe a 5 on a scale of Cher to Beyonce), but these definitely seemed small in the rear.
The seam at the back of the knee is a problem. It rubbed my skin raw on a 10 mile run.
For me the RRS High-Speed Compression capri is a much better fit.

does not fit right
Meaning to return this... just have to drive up to my local store. does not fit right at all... i ordered a medium and i am usually a small in nike tights and this was still too tight. it is also very sheer and the material is not very comfortable. pay the extra money for an under armour or nike tight.
Love these pants! I bought them on sale which made them an even more excellent purchase. They are great for cooler weather, I ran in them during the upper 50's last week... Look forward to wearing them again. Only con: I wish they had some sort of pocket for a key!
Look good, but just don't work
Like other reviewers stated, these are extremely see through. Too much so for me to keep. I also thought these ran small relative to my several other pairs of capri tights under the RRS brand. They looked cute, but I just couldn't keep them.
Good for racing, question durability
Great look. Good compression. Good price. Given the white lining they are partially see through on arrival. I believe after repeated washing they would quickly become see through. I just received them so this is unproven.

Great tights for racing - stay in place!
I just wore these tights for a trail run and they didn't move at all. They also kept my legs warm for the whole race. Love them!
