First Wearing Report on Passion Crop - Good for Spin!

I wore my new Passion Crops to spin class this morning. I really like the shorter length. My whole calf is bare which helps a lot with cooling. The lower rise is also nice for spin. Higher rise pants often dig into my middle when I am bent over the bike so a lower rise very comfortable. My only nit is that the band at the bottom rides up when you walk and cuts into the back of my knee.  I don't exactly have skinny legs so if you have thin legs this may not be an issue for you.  When I was on the bike or sitting in the car it didn't bother me at all, it's only really noticeable when you are walking or standing still. If you are going to get these, I suggest walking around for a bit when you try them on to see if the band will bug you.

Product Features:

  • Low rise knee length crop for mid-season running
  • Made of 4-way stretch power luxtreme for muscle support and wicking abilities during fast-paced runs
  • Strong elastic waistband with internal drawstring for added support
  • Body-shaping flatlocked seams
  • Rib hem that stays in place
  • Side zipper pocket to secure your cards and keys

New Deep V Designs

Some interesting new Deep Vs showed up this week in the product alerts. The first is the Gaze print in black and white stripes. I don't think I like this. Lululemon could market this to lady refs or female Footlocker employees.

I think I like this one much better but I still don't know if I would buy it. I skipped the whole inky manifesto thing last winter. I'm not really keen on people reading my shirt as I work out.

Update: The Scoop Neck is also available in the Inky Manifesto. I think I like it better than the Deep V.
