Luon Suited Jacquard Fit Physique Crops and Cerulean Sculpt II tank. I saw the Fit Physique crops in the store and really liked them. It wasn't mentioned in any of the text on the crops (or tights) but they have an extra layer of fabric in the rear. The fabric almost seems to be light luon but I think it's even thinner than that. Here are some detail photos:

The rear lining shows up best in the jacquard version.

The mesh panels are double layered - wider net mesh with a smaller mesh on top. This makes the mesh not so see-through and more subtle. 

I am a fan of bottoms with double-layered rears (see the True Self crops) because I know they are completely opaque in deep bends. Since I do an outdoor bootcamp the extra layer of fabric isn't much of an issue when it comes to becoming overly warm during workouts. I tried on the new Fit Physiques in the store on Wednesday and ended up buying them in black. I was also tempted by the Hero Blue but I always end up selling my navy luon bottoms. The Fit Physiques reminded me a lot of the True Selfs with the double layered rear and a higher, comfy waistband, and a similar length.  I wore them for a weight lifting workout on Thursday and really liked them.

Another pair of pants with a double-layered rear are the Featherlight Tights. The double layer runs the entire length of the leg so they're warmer than the Fit Physique bottoms. I tried on both the black and gray in these and they are 100% opaque in a deep bend. The pocket situation isn't that great for running but I'd consider getting a pair of these for the gym on a nice markdown.

I really hate the ugly under the butt seam. It's ugly.

I purchased the Physically fit crops but they aren't good. I need to return. Boo.

Yes. Agreed I can't handle the butt seem.
