Gets the job done
I generally like to wear capris to run in, and when I needed a new pair, I bought these on sale. Honestly, they're not my favorite, but they'll stay in my "workout capri rotation" until I get something better. I think the main problem is that they're really big. I normally wear a Large, and these are really long--it just feels like there's a lot of extra fabric. I'm 5'4" and I can pull them up past my belly button, and I could, in theory, pull them down almost to my mid-calf (and this is after washing and drying them). I prefer my capris to hit just below the knee, and luckily the bottoms of the legs are tight enough so that I can scrunch them up to where I want them and they stay there during my workout. I might have a better review if I had sized down, because overall I like the pants and they seem durable and high quality, but even then I think they'd be too long. They're comfortable to run in though because they don't bother me while I'm actually moving around.

good quality but fit for slimmer legs
These tights are great. The midweight fabric is sturdy, stretchy and soft except for the mesh vent at the calf. My calf muscles are well developed and I found the fit in the lower leg to be somewhat small and uncomfortable. For simmer legs, I highly recommend these tights.
