These running capris are a great buy and my first pair of Brooks. I would purchase another pair, but my size isn't available in the style I have. When I returned to order another pair I did notice, especially since I was wearing them that my actual pair logo marking wise was different than those pictured, the waistband on my pair is much thicker than the black pair pictured, the waistband is more like the pink waistband thickness. Just saying so you're aware that if you order the black or anthracite ones they may not look like the picture. However, these little items don't change how great they fit. First time I wore them I did a body pump class and ran little over 3 miles after the class. They did not loose their shape or tightness. They do have a rubber like band around the bottom to hold them in place, which does hold them in place, but I suggest you have shaven legs as it will pull the stubble. The back pocket is fairly large, as all back pockets not real convenient to get into while wearing. To the sizing, I often see people saying I'm this height and weight etc and how great the item fit, but they leave out what size they purchased. So I'm making sure I list this info, I'm 5'5", weigh around 143, straight around the waist and hips, however not a lot of excess in that area, with muscular upper legs and I purchased a SMALL, they fit rather snug, not enough that they were uncomfortable. The snug fit is good for me since being straight in the hip/waist I find a lot of the running pants will ride down. They are a little tight in the calves, but I have large calves. Overall great pair of running capris and disappointed I couldn't get a second pair.
