To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Reviews have to be taken in the context of the expectations of the reviewer. I actually think these are superb running or training leggings but I didn't give them five stars... I'm 6' tall, 200lbs and XL fits me perfectly, including the leg length. I've worn them for a run and they are like a second skin - comfortable, don't move about or rub. The problem is they are too thin. I'm not sure I'd dare wear them (running) without shorts over the top - there's just too much on display. I do wonder about the "thermal" claim - material this thin can't have much of a warming effect. Finally, my intended use for these leggings was for winter cycling; I can't see these lasting long before the backside wears through, but I look forward to being pleasantly surprised. I did consider returning them because they aren't what I expected but I am keeping them because they fit so well and I will use them, but I'm back on Amazon looking for a slightly thicker, less revealing, more thermal pair of leggings to wear over my cycling shorts.
Bought these in the Black Friday sale at a very good price for running. Usually a medium but generally buy one size up for Under Armour. Good fit but bizarrely slightly baggy behind the knees, medium would have been too small though (34” waist), looking forward to trying them out and sure they’ll do the job! 4 stars rather than 5 due to fitting oddly around the backs of my knees
I use these for running as a base layer under shirts. You get great support and added warmth. Nice feel of the materials and the seams are formed brilliantly without shafing or rubbing. They are the correct size, made to the size guide on the shopping page. They are really comfortable.
Maybe a little too long but it's not really an issue as I can tuck into my socks or just leave them be. They fit great, strech well when you're working out legs. The logo down the leg is starting to fade away after just a single wash.
