static luon from a couple of years ago and after feeling them I have to agree. Some people are saying they thought they ran on the smaller side. I am not sure about that. I think they run about average for WUs. I don't think the material is overly stretchy so that may be why people are saying they feel snugger. I thought the coverage was good, the pattern hides flaws but the material is on the shinier side compared to most WUs. I didn't get them for a couple of reasons, one was that static prints dampen visibly with sweat. Another was that I already have black Wee Stripe and Black Space Dye WUs and can live without them. A third was that my Static Charcoal Still pants have pilled badly but I have to say this version of static feels a lot less stretchy than the older version. Now that I am going back and looking at my try on photos as I write this I am thinking they look kind of cute, I might think about ordering them if they show up online on Monday night. The fabric content is 41% nylon, 42% polyester, 17% lycra. As a bonus, they are made in Canada.
Still Grounded pant I was prepared to be disappointed in these pants but was pleasantly surprised. The luon felt very cottony and soft. I thought the coverage was decent - better than before but not super opaque under all conditions like old school luon. I had on black underwear and in a deep bend I could see my underwear but standing upright or in a slight bend I thought they are livable.
Remix Light hoodies (favorite lightweight hoodie, ever!) from years ago. I didn't care for the Power Purple version because there are three different purples used in it (cuffs and ribbed hem are different french terry than the body) and the Black/Soot was kind of masculine, as someone here pointed out. I never get black french terry for fears of fading so that left the white version. If you are in the market for a lightweight French Terry hoodie then you may want to get one of these.
The Runbeam SS has been calling to me in the photos I've seen of it lately. I tried on the White/Aquamarine and White/Nimbus Bold Striped today. I ended up going home with the Purple Pocket one since it was kind of quirky. Since I am busty the pocket hits me higher on the chest. I burn at the mere thought of sunlight and will be doing a lot of summer training runs for my August races so I've been wearing my UPF tops more and had been toying with getting another top. I find the longsleeve and pullover tops too warm to wear but the short sleeve is fine. I thought the White/Aquamarine fit looser overall than the Bold Stripe Nimbus one.

The last item I got today was a pair of black Pace crops that were on the markdown rack. I like the articulated knees and these were a decent price at $64. I am set for run crops now.
