Giant Herringbone Speed Tight IIs on the left vs the new Power Luxtreme Variegated Knit Speed Tight Vs on the right. (I did a comparison of the Speed Tight IVs to the same Herringbone Speed Tight IIs last year (for reference, the photos at the end of this post)). The differences between the Speed Tight IIs and the V are: the Vs are 1.5" shorter (28.5" vs. 30"), logo moved to the waistband, and seam across the back of the thigh. The only difference I can tell between the Speed Tight IV and V is the lack of ruching at the bottom.

The Variegated Knit looks like a tiny herringbone. It's nicely thick, too - thicker than the herringbone. I weighed both pairs of pants and the Variegated Knit ones were a little heavier (.62 lb vs. .60 lb) than the Herringbone, despite being 1.5" shorter.

If you are a fan of textured luxtremes and missed out on the herringbone Speed Tights the Variegated Knit are a nice alternative.

The website says the Fleecing Cold pieces are made of cotton fleece. This is wrong, it's regular polyester fleece:

Fleecing Cold Zip Up


My store only had the Pullover and the Zip Up. The Zip Up has a trapeze shape that ended at my widest part. The Pullover was nice but the ribbon finish at the bottom hem didn't stretch over my booty so that was a no-go for me. I thought both fit TTS and were nicely warm.
