Fab fabric but keep falling down!
Beautiful print, nice weight tights, the problem is the waist is very low and below the natural waist line so no matter how tight you pull the cord the tights slip down, very irritating on a run as I have to keep pulling them up! I have had the gravity tights and the tights in cropped from the last 2 seasons and not had this problem, please go back to the previous fit on the waist. Also even at 5ft 4in the tights are a little short. Disappointed really, shame as the fabric and pattern is gorgeous.

Look great, but ...
These look great and have attracted loads of compliments but they are let down by the fact that they fall down slightly when worn. I would much prefer to see a proper internal tie string at the waist, than the loop style fastening currently used, which makes it difficult to tie tightly enough. I will wear these for bootcamp now where I can regularly stop to hitch them up, but they are unsuitable for running any distance, which is disappointing as they were expensive and sold and bought specifically as running leggings.

Won over by a pattern!
When I first set eyes on these leggings I needed them!! They look great on and feel supportive and fit well, the only downside is the waist band seems to fall down when I run, even if I do the waistband up tight which is a little tricky with the loop system but I like the idea of it, still trying to work out which is the best way to tie it.
The fabric is stretchy and feels great, and the seams feel unnoticeable against the skin, pattern is fab!
Maybe not for long runs due to the waistband but I'll wear them to the gym and for shorter runs! :-) more patterns like this please!

Fashion over Function
At a price point above some of my favorite athletic brands like Lululemon and CW-x, these tights fail to deliver. The best thing about them is the galaxy design which is fun and different, and easy to match tops to given the range of colors in the design. However, compared to other tights i own, they offer very little support. Whereas Lulu pants have panels that hold your tummy in, these have none. Whereas CW-x tights have wide band elastic in addition to drawstrings, these tights only have draw strings, which cause the pants to buckle at your tummy when you are bending over. CW-x tights also give great knee support, and these have none. The fabric is light and does not grip enough to one's body when dry, and also I expect a warmer tight when they are this long to the ankle and offered for sale in the winter months. Lastly, the sizing is incorrect for urban American markets. I always order a size S when the smallest size is XS, but for these I had to take an XS, which means that anyone smaller then me (size 2) is out of luck. Well, there are tons of women in NYC (and LA) smaller then me, so the company is missing out on a the biggest part of the market by not either having XXS or by re-sizing smaller for the US market. In general, I do like these tights, just don't love them enough given the highest price tag in the market. Under Armour, Nike, Lorna Jane and Altheta, all make similar product at half the price, while Lululemon and CW-x make a superior product for a bit less.

Apart from being a little looser around the waist than other leggings of the same size, the fit is great and the material has a good amount of stretch without going see-through. The reflective silver band down the legs starts to crack after a few washes, but other than that I love wearing these!
