I am 5'11" and around a 14-16 on bottom. I was really worried that these would be too short and too tight in a large, but I went for it and I am very pleased with them. They are a good fit at this size. They go to my ankles without being over stretched and are not prone to falling down. They are not low rise, but more of a medium to high rise, which helps them stay up in my opinion. I love the soft fleecy inside and the color is intense, which is a good thing as I am sick and tired of black. I also got the M.H. Trekkin tights, but these are way more comfortable and warm. I have used them in 10 degrees weather with a skirt over top and not felt any breeze. I will be wearing them with my short down skirt for aerobic winter activities like nordic skiing. Great find for a tall girl!

I am returning these. Maybe it's my monitor, but these are a much bolder color than I was seeing on my computer. They look blue to me on the website but are actually purple. They are still in the sealed bag, so I can not comment on anything else.

I bought these tights primarily for their color - it's a great alternative to black and I have purple running shoes - but also because I thought they'd be good for winter running. The color is perfect and I receive lots of complements on them. As for winter running, they are a great base layer but not warm enough on their own. This ended up being great for me bc now I can wear them for my circuit workouts (which can be very intense) without getting over-heated. They stay put, don't sag, and feel great. They are fine for running in 30+ degrees as long as there's not too much wind.

Wore these for the first time today on an 11 mile run. As soon as I put them on I loved them. They are soft against my skin; the waistband is wide and doesn't pinch. Love the back zippered key pocket. I stayed warm and comfy through my run, and never thought about my tights. That's the key to good running clothes, they fit and feel so good you never notice them.

Great purple color. I didn't notice before I ordered but there is purple/orange stitching running up the sides. There is a small reflective strip on each calf. I have worn in weather as cold as 29 F so far and they have kept me toasty.
If you're on the border between sizes, order down -- I agree with the other reviewer that these run a little large.

I love the look of these pants. I am a mountain runner and was hoping to wear these alone or under a running skirt for winter. The fabric is not as thick or as form-fitting as I would have liked. I am 5'11 and usually a size 12 or so, but the large was really too big for me. If they had fit better they'd be awesome. I regretably am sending them back...and hope for another purple pair that works.
