Run for Cold Pullover, Outrun LS, Fast and Free Tight, and Baller cap. I like the look of the Outrun LS here but am not sure about the feel of the jacquard rulu. I don't think you'd ever pair up Nulux Fast and Free tights with such warm items on top. I tried on Nulux Speed Wunders in the store the other day and felt chilled just standing in the dressing room when the outside temps were in the 60s. Nulux is the most breathable material lululemon makes. It's for use in sweaty workouts and warmer weather.

Well, yeah, haha, I guess it would be more breathable when the material is so thin that it is see through! lol

Those reflective dots on the black tight look pathetic.

So I grabbed the new Fast & Free tights yesterday in my store and tried them on at home. They're going back. To me, the waistband, with all its layers and pockets, is constricting and totally the opposite of the "free" and comfy feeling of the rest of the legging.

I really like the fabric and the side pockets, but there are pockets all around the waist, which means several extra layers of fabric and extra compression. It was uncomfortable for me.
I feel like others might have this problem also because I am small-waisted- I tend to carry my weight on my butt and thighs, so usually I have an issue with things being roomy in the waist.
Also regarding the pockets around the waist- they seem like overkill to me. I run distance, and there's no way I need all that. If I'm running so far that I need to carry multiple snacks, I'm also probably carrying water in a waist pack or backpack, and then I have lots of storage with the water. So.... strange.

Anyway, just my two cents... I wish they didn't make all those stupid waist pockets because I would have LOVED them otherwise. (Also- I found the front reflective dots to be a little cheesy, and I thought that the price is a little insane)

@ anon 9:30 am - I find that, too, with the exterior waistband pockets. Just make the standard front slot and rear zipper pocket, which are not constricting. Didn't lululemon innovate that pocket set up? Don't mess with what made you famous. I like the 5 pocket set up for races - I use the two front slots for my gel blocks, the back zipper for my ID/Cash/room key (if a destination race)/car key and I use the thigh pockets for my phone and ipod. I hate waist belts with the passion of a thousand fiery suns so the five pocket set up is an instant sell for me on run pants. However, I do not like the shallowness of the exterior pockets. I don't feel that my items are as secure as they in the deep front slot pockets. I definitely hate the rear open slot pocket.

I really don't understand the new trend of eliminating the front slot pockets. If they are empty they add no bulk. I find them a handy place to tuck my ipod at the gym. I don't like the new rear slot pocket trend. The old Deep V tank used to have a rear pocket and it was such a pain to run my cord (no, I'm not going cordless, I have enough things to charge) down my back and dig out my ipod from back there. Also, when I have to use a machine with a pad at my back, which is a lot of them, I'd have to remove it. I use far fewer machines where I lay on my front.

I really loved the fast and free tights. They felt amazing on but not willing to pay 128 plus tax. I'm between a 4 and 6 and found the 4 gave me slight compression where the 6 felt like they might slide right off and give a real naked sensation lol.

The pocket situation on a lot of the run tights lately has been maddening. All I ask for is a rear zipper pocket so I don't lose my stuff and thigh pockets for my phone (also handy for long distance snacks). This is probably why I own quite a few pace rivals and rebel runners (ummm is it time for those again??)

Agree 100. Wish they'd go back to their classic waistband and pockets. All this "innovation" is innovating me right off the brand. :/

Could someone advise me on what running tights are good for the cold weather? I looked at the First Mile ones online but all the reviews say they're small and people can barely move in them which is no good for me. I am a size 12 which generally fit exactly in LLL so I suspect they'd be too small and I can't size up. I really want to invest in a pair of something nice to use as the temperature drops here but I have no idea, and no option at the moment to go in store, and since last time they said the aligns were nice and cool and they were so hot I nearly boiled in them I'm not sure I trust the educators!

Also I think the educators hate their jobs in my nearest store, they're all very lovely when you speak to them but they stand outside the changing rooms complaining about LLL which makes for a very entertaining experience. Last time I tried on loads of stuff and bought one thing and apologised to the educator who sighed and said "no it's OK, LLL write it into my contract so I am paid to do this" - said not in a dig at me but at a dig at LLL! I've worked in retail before so we gave each other that knowing smile.

@Lottie - what are the temps you'll be running in? I think the brushed luxtreme tights are pretty good for temps down to about the low 30s, depending on the wind/dampness. I've read the first mile tech fleece run super tight so you'll either want to search out previous year's tech fleece like the Toasty Tech Tights or check out some of the warmer pants at Athleta. The heathered black Speed Tights just got uploaded yesterday and they are brushed.

The lowest probably is going to be 40-45 degrees so not as low as low 30s, I will try ordering the luxtreme tights. I think just getting into the First Mile tights might end up in a bit of a workout let alone trying to move in them!

@Lottie Yes, the first mile tights run crazy small, weird fit too :-(.. I love my Toasty Tech from couple years ago, I wish I bought two pairs!

LuluAddict said...

@Lottie - thanks. I tend to run warm and I've only run in 30 degree temps once and I wore regular luon since I didn't have anything else. I've run in the upper 40s in crops and a swiftly tank but my arms were pretty cold for the entire half marathon.
