First Wearing Report on Passion Crop - Good for Spin!

I wore my new Passion Crops to spin class this morning. I really like the shorter length. My whole calf is bare which helps a lot with cooling. The lower rise is also nice for spin. Higher rise pants often dig into my middle when I am bent over the bike so a lower rise very comfortable. My only nit is that the band at the bottom rides up when you walk and cuts into the back of my knee.  I don't exactly have skinny legs so if you have thin legs this may not be an issue for you.  When I was on the bike or sitting in the car it didn't bother me at all, it's only really noticeable when you are walking or standing still. If you are going to get these, I suggest walking around for a bit when you try them on to see if the band will bug you.

Product Features:

  • Low rise knee length crop for mid-season running
  • Made of 4-way stretch power luxtreme for muscle support and wicking abilities during fast-paced runs
  • Strong elastic waistband with internal drawstring for added support
  • Body-shaping flatlocked seams
  • Rib hem that stays in place
  • Side zipper pocket to secure your cards and keys

does the fabric pill as much as the luon? i have a pair of wunder under crops that started pilling within 3 days--even before washing. i love love the fit, but i can't wear them out in public. such a shame!

This is my first pair of "power" luxtreme crops so I'll have to let you know. Looking at my other luxtreme tops and Hills Crops it looks like luxtreme pills less and in tinier pills than the luon. You have to be careful not to snag it and lean on rough surfaces like concrete or brick walls when wearing it.

That's too bad about the pills. I've had some luon pill more than others and it seems to be color dependent. Have you tried a sweater shaver to get rid of the pills? You have to be very careful not to put a hole but it will take off the pills. I think the stores offer de-pilling also.

thanks for the response! i've tried a sweater stone, but was afraid i was doing more harm than good. i'll have to check out the luxtreme pants next time i'm near a store.
