Great tights for Fall running. Warm, but not heavy. I love that Pearl Izumi has a longer inseam on their pants/tights. The tights also have a longer zipper than most above the ankle.

Happy To Have
Needed a pair of running pants for these SoCal winters and looked to the Pearl Izumi's. I knew from past experience that they made a great product for biking but thought I'd try them for running since I'm training for my first half marathon. Love 'em. They're sleek and silky and warm and the back pocket fits my ipod, trail map and gel. The zip legs are also fantastic and since I tend to run warm, they get used a lot. Other than that, I don't think about them much when I'm running, which is ideal. For scale, I'm 5'8" and normally wear size 5/6 and these pants fit like a glove with maybe a half inch extra on length. Still might be a bit warm for this part of the world but perfect for my native PNW. Also thinking they might be a great high altitude base layer for hiking the Sierras this summer. One way to find out!

Length is good for 5'10". Warm enough for 20 degrees and ok for 50. Classic pearl izumi quality.

Best running pants ever!
These are by far the best running pants I've ever owned. I've heard of the brand but never tried them before now. Not only are they extremely comfortable they also seem to provide just the right amount of warmth. I'm based in NorCal and wear these on the foggy, rainy days and they are perfect. They provide just the right amount of support without being too tight and I haven't experienced any issues with bunching behind the knees - a problem I've had with some other brands. I would definitely buy these again.

great for running
These pants fit true to size, great for running. I run on the treadmill so I cannot give a review on how the pants are in certain weather. They are very comfortable. You cannot put them in the dryer so they do take a while to dry but other than that they are great.
