Great bargain...

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought these as a gift for my girlfriend and she loves them. We originally bought a large and found they were really long and baggy. We traded them in for a size medium and though the waist fit perfectly, the legs themselves were slightly longer than she was hoping for.

These have longer legs, so the shorter the inseam on the girl, the longer the tights will appear. They tend to bunch slightly at the bottoms when we go road/trail running together, but that's her only complaint.

So other than having long legs in mind when Stoic designed these legging you can't go wrong! (Really, it isn't that bad after all.)

4 of 5 stars due to length issues. They breathe well according to the lady, are comfy yet warm, etc.

Thank you.

Awesome tights, slight tourniquet action

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Love that these tights are so thick. I get really sick of bending over in the gym and knowing that everyone can see I'm wearing wonder woman underpants. No show here! I agree that they have a little extra knee-pit room, but nothing particularly annoying and this seems to happen with my other stoic baselayer, too. I'm 5'9" with LeBron James legs, so it's magical that they actually go down to my ankles. I have mixed feelings about the waistband, hoping it'll loosen its deathgrip a bit in time... I love it that it's tight and these pants don't fall down at ALL, but if you have any extra cushion around your midsection, it'll be in a bit of a chokehold. That said, I'd rather have a muffintop that have my ass hanging out because my tights have shuffled their way down to my knees again :)

Love these tights!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Great for running, I'm not sticking to the material when I sweat. Breathable but warm, kind of like a second skin. Has a handy, small pocket in the waistband in the back, can't fit more than a card and key - no phone! Ordered small, am 5'4 and 120, fits great.

Better than expected!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have been searching for a tight that both keeps me warm from wind and fits snug with no saggy crotch. These tights are absolutely amazing! The waistband I think is my favorite part; it holds snug and does not slip around, yet it does not choke. I use them for cycling and running so far and plan to bring them camping. So far worn them in as cold as 40 degrees F, but plan to utilize them more this winter. They are a solid all around tight which I highly recommend. I am 5'4" and 120lbs and ordered a small.

Funny fit, not for me

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

As mentioned by others, the fit on these leggings are a little funky. I am a size 10 and the medium fit perfect everywhere...but behind the knees. Seriously, the fabric gets weird and slouchy right by the knees. I was looking for a snug fit across the board so these just didn't do it for me. If you are looking for a bit looser tights, these might be the ones for you. Size in the waist worked well for me, just not the excess fabric behind the knees.

Do not like the fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I am 5'7 and 128lbs and these fit horribly. They are high waisted fit, which isn't a huge issue. Though, there is WAY too much excess fabric behind my knees. I want a very tight fitting tight when I am working out. The waist part is very tight, so if I was to size down, I would end up squishing into the waist band. But then my bottom and thighs fit fine. Still a little too long for me as well.

multi-use tights

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I'm about 5'4", 135lbs and I purchased these tights in a medium. Sits hight on my waist and they're a little long so it bunches around the ankles a bit, but it's not a problem. Great worn as a base layer (i.e. as a Californian girl visiting Boston in the winter) or alone for rock climbing or running

Fit True To Size

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I'm a women size 10 bottom and the medium fits like a glove. These are snug since they're for exercise rather than lounge. Quality fabric, stitching flat seams are solid, legs will accommodate a taller gal (I'm 5'2 and have tons of extra leg length.) Other reviews writ about seams coming undone, slightly concerned about it happening to my pair. Not putting them through the dryer as a precaution. And if the weather is less than 40F, you'll feel the chill if only wearing these. They make for a great base layer though.

great multi-use tights

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I picked up a pair of these a little over two months ago after sadly putting a big hole in the butt of my favorite tights (nice, right?) After a week, these stoic tights seemed like the replacement I was looking for and I picked up a second pair.

Now that I have two, I'm in these multiple times a week. Ive already logged plenty of hours in them climbing indoors, on runs, hiking, biking, as a baselayer while boarding and a few times to yoga. They haven't been out in foul weather yet, but they seem to dry pretty quickly based on my laundry experiences.

They've stood up pretty well so far. I wasn't completely thrilled with the waistband at first, there is both the elastic of the pants and a second band. I actually removed the second band and found them to be much more comfortable after that (and they stay up just fine). I usually wear a small or medium, but usually more smalls than medium so I decided on a small, and the fit works for me, so I would say they run true to size.

Bottomline: I'd recommend these... good price & versatile

Very tight

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I just received these in the mail and will have to exchange them. I'm usually a size medium but some of the reviews said they ordered down a size so I tried that. I am 5'4" 120lbs and the small was way too tight on me. The length was fine but the waist was uncomfortably tight. I do like them so I'll be exchanging for a medium.

Responded on

That means that it does NOT run small, since you're normally a medium and decided to order a smaller size.

Responded on

im just under 5'2 and 130lbs. but athletic and i wear a size small. and these fit pretty snug, i wouldnt say they were super tight where they would be stretching at the seams.

Responded on

Sorry, I should have clarified: I can normally wear a small or medium and have plenty in both, but I tend to go with mediums more often for more room. The small was much tighter than any of my other smalls in athletic pants, which is why I chose the "runs small" option. They definitely aren't "stretching at the seams" small, just uncomfortably tight, to me.

What color are the seams on the black...

Posted on

What color are the seams on the black tights? In some pictures they are contrast gray seams and others look just black?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Trina,

Stitching on the current black option is also black. I think the option in the detailed photos with the white or grey threading was from an older option.

SO AWESOME

love these bottoms, I'm 5'5" about 125lbs, and I rock a Medium, love the fit, and versatility of the bottoms, can basically conquer the world in these pants ha ha.

Great product

I am 5'9" and usually need a 33" inseam. This pant worked beautifully. I would order again. I have only had the item a short time but it seems well made.

Great Versitile leggings

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got these so I could run during the somewhat cold, soggy Seattle winter. I've worn them a few times and they're very comfy and as warm as you'd expect. The only thing that surprised me is that they are a bit loose around the knee. That makes them all the more comfortable though. I would recommend this product!

Great for winter biking & baselayer

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've worn these nearly constantly for the past month--alone for biking down to freezing temp, as a baselayer when it's colder, and any other time I can find an excuse. The medium fits my bottom-heavy, 140 lb, 5'5" frame without inducing muffin-top. I suppose they're a bit long, but that doesn't bother me, especially for biking. The crotch started wearing a bit after washing, so I don't know how long they'll last, but I would definitely buy more. I normally don't do leggings with my thunderous thighs, but these are so booty-flattering that I'll even sport them as such (with leg warmers to cover the logo). My new favorite weapon against MN winter.

For winter cycling, suggest Giordana's Forma Red Carbon tights; top quality/fit (size up)...I'm a bit larger than you and they fit-flatter-and perform perfectly...with no signs of wear (after a year!). Plus, you get the perfect chamois specifically for cycling comfort!

If it's particularly nasty out (freezing drizzle, etc.) you can top off with Gore's ALP-X GT 2.0 wind/rain pants (they're just a super shell...totally light weight).

High Quality Tights

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered these tights, but I was pleasantly surprised. They exceeded my expectations in terms of the material,they were also very flattering, and have a nice little zip pocket. Nice tights at a great price.

Comfy, warm, and they don't fall down!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used these running a few times (in winter, mid 20s F) and as a baselayer on a three night winter backpacking trip. I think they are as warm as my old under armour cold gear tights, although the material is thinner. They are very comfortable and don't slide down when I run, the way so many other tights do.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE these!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a pair of these a few months ago and absolutely love them. They were thick enough to keep me warm while running in 30 degree weather but not so thick that they made me too hot. I liked them so much that I bought a second pair for whenever they do wear out.

Ordered size smaller - best decision!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As I mentioned below I purchased these for myself (and a gift for my marathon running mom!). I can't get enough of these tights!

I think almost every female at this office has a pair of these running tights. At their suggestion I went a size down. I'm 5'7" & 135lbs. I purchased a size small. Upon opening the package I was nervous as they looked too small.

Sizing down was AWESOME! They hardly move while running & fit perfectly. They keep me warm on early morning/late night runs & on some winter hikes.

Only downside is that we sold out of smalls before I could stock up on more of these tights!

Best Running Tights

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

After purchasing (and loving) a pair of these tights for myself, I had to buy a pair for my mom! She's a marathoner (training for this years' Boston).

These were the perfect purchase for her as she lives in Denver & will be doing a lot of winter running. She's 5'4" 115lbs & i purchased the XS based on my experience with the Smalls (I'm 5'7" 133lbs).

My mom said once she got these she's hardly worn any of her other running tights. I'd say this gift was a win!
