Any thoughts on the Toasty Tech Tights? I understand they released a previous version a couple years ago. How were they received?
How warm are they? I am planning to wear them both for running and snowshoeing, would this work?

Any idea what the price will be on the toasty tech tights?

I have Fleecy Keen in fuel green from last year and really liking it . I might have to get one in Wine Berry as well

I too love the Sunset Salutation Tank..Just bought my first one the other day and took it for a test ride in spin class..it's just great..hopefully more colors! The wild tank is just too revealing for my tastes. Interested to see what other colors the Fleecy Keen comes in and what do you suppose is the difference with this 3rd edition from last year 2nd?

Also, LLA is Kaitlin no longer answering question under the what we love? I didn't see any questions get answered from last week's edition because last week I asked a couple :)

Does anyone know how the fit is for the fleecy keen jacket? I missed out on it last year so I defiantly want it this year! Im just not sure if I should get my true size or size up. Thanks in advance!

I would size up on the Fleecy Keen. I'm a 6 in everything, but when I bought this last year, the arms of the size 6 were incredibly tight--there's no way I could have worn anything underneath it. I exchanged it for an 8, and it's perfect. This jacket sold out fairly quickly, from what I remember. I love it- wear it all the time

Lululover said...

I also sized up in Fleecy Keen, my TTS 4 was a little too tight in chest

I wish Lulu would use models with short hair. So often the hair is what we see instead of the neckline, such as the Kanto catch me long sleeve.

I bought these last year and love them. Living in SoCal so couldn't test them on snow but I get cold super easy and they keep me warm and perform well. I use them for my beach boot camp so they get lot of "abuse" aka rolling in the sand, running, jumping etc. I'm in between 6 and 8 in wunders and glad I went for 6 in these. I used to live in a colder climate and my guess would be for real winter I would need an extra layer..But this is the last year model, don't know if LL changes it this year..

BrownCow said...

Off topic can anyone comment on any coco pique bottoms they have ? I got the new high rise wunder unders in coco pique and the first pair had a hole in them and the replacement pair has gone so fuzzy after two wears ... It's weird and I'm
Not sure if it's normal for this design/ material anyone else experience this ?

Any opinions on the Toasty Tech vs Speed Tight *Tech for winter running?

I bought the toasty tech tights last year and I love them! They are lined with a light weight fleece, so are even warmer than the brushed speed tights. I was very comfortable on 30 degree early morning runs.

Re: Toasty Tech Tights. Love them! They are crazy warm - and are my go-to when the temp is below 20F. Higher waisted than the speed tights (the tech fleece version of these is my go-to between 20-32F). I went with an 8, but could've gone with a 6 though I ordered online and didn't want to deal with returns. They aren't as compressive as I would like, but they keep my legs warm.

Interested to see the price point in the new version. IIRC, in 2012 they were either $108 or $118, and I'm leaning to the lower. My guess is at least $138 this time around.

Fleecy Keen went to wmtm last year. I'm not into it.

I don't care for anything in this set of photos except the one positive is the FTBW bra has all solid and same coloured straps versus the mish mash they have been doing with some versions, making them uninviting. I have enough FTBW now and the version has to really grab me.

Love forage teal and fuel green but so far there is nothing released that I have to have, though I do want something in those colours - I would settle for just nice, solid, soft CRBs - in rulu light would be great. I love my regal plum rulu CRB (the luon one I bought will go to a friend for Christmas.)

The toasty tech tights are some of my all time favorite winter tights. The fit is the greatest. The high waist is great and I love all the pockets. I do have to say though, they don't cut it for warmth when it is below 15 degrees fahrenheit or so. But I live in the midwest united states where when it is bitter cold there is some humidity and it tends to be super windy, so it feels colder than the temperature is. I remember last year running in mine a few times when it was below 0 and having a pretty red bum and legs after. There are definitely warmer tights out there, but if your climate is warmer you should be golden with these.

thank you! I am trying to decide between these and the Speed Tights the fleece version (that's if they get to N America)

Toasty Tech tight is not warm enough for true winter and not if you're going below -10C (14F) and god help you if you have wind. Definitely not worth the exorbitant price.

I'm a broken record on this but it is still quite laughable that LLL lauds this (and any other) as a winter running tight. They need to expand their "winter" definition outside southern BC (no knock against BC because I LOVE BC).

This is coming from a hardcore runner of many years, southern Ontario where winters are very cold (can get lots of sunshine though so we are lucky that way). I still like certain LLL but at least I'm not so sucked in anymore.

Actually, the most popular colors of the Fleecy Keen did not go to WMTM last year. (I'm sure you're right that some of the colors went on sale, but the Fuel Green version sold out at least online; I know because a friend of mine tried to order it after she saw mine, but couldn't.)

I do remember that the previous winter (2013) a lot of people (like you, 5:28 :)) found the first iteration of the Fleecy Keen over-designed. I still liked it well enough (it was a little more ruffle-y) to get the Deep Zinfandel one on sale @ my local store. So, I have both the busier 2013 and the simpler 2014 version for which I paid full price. Overall, I like them both a lot.

The only reason I'm rambling on is because I think the Fleecy Keen is worth a try if the style appeals and you think you'd get use out of it. I personally find the Wine Berry color very tempting since it's saturated, but not too bright.

It seems as if things are generally moving more slowly @ lulu, but there's no guarantee this jacket will go to mark down since I think quite a few people liked this jacket last season.

PS. I got my Fleecy Keen in my TTS 4.

@Brown Cow - I have a pair of coco pique WUs from winter 2011/2012 I believe and absolutely love them. Never had any issues.

Courtney Kahn said...

I got the Fleecy Keen in 2013. My records show I paid $215, so probably $198.

The polar fleece fabric they use is excellent quality. There is a lot of detail with the quilting. It's hooded. Has reflective components. I'm 5'6" 125 lbs 34D. Went with my TTS 6.

Love my Toast Tech Tights from 2012?! Agree, they are warmer than Brushed Speed Tights.

dogrunner said...

I am a minnesota runner and have a couple pairs of the speed tight tech. I would wear them from 0-20F. If it was much under 20 I would layer a pair of WTF running shorts over them and typically wear a WTF pullover at this temps or a fleecy keen. I have the fleecy keen and bought it in my usual size and would layer a rulu long sleeve under was plenty warm.

Last year, the Toasty Tech were $118, I believe. They are absolutely cozy (well for our somewhat mild climate here in Seattle). There was only a few days last winter (in November of all months) where I had to wear tights with a goretex pant over them to run (and that was because of the cold AND the rain--more like sleet!) I'm sure Lulu will jack up the price a bunch--there's been an insidious price creep!

I bought the toast tech tights today and they were $118. I was hoping to find the fleece speed tights but since they weren't in yet I decided to give the toasties a try. They had black, black with static waistband, and Bordeaux. I got my usual size, but I could've gone down, and I might buzz them back and exchange. If you're looking for compression and you're in-between I'd say size down. They seem like they'll be pretty warm for winter runs to me...
