Running pants for men are a tough purchase. Fit, form and function all come together. For the fit: I'm 6' & 190lbs. I bought the large and they fit really well. I'll agree with Alex Morris' review that the bottom cuff could be ~1" lower, but if you're wearing a sock (it is a cold weather pant), then it doesn't effect you as much. Not so loose that I noticed or complain, but a tighter taper would help the fit. For the form: they look great! I got these on sale along with a hoodie and the combo was just what I need for off season, cold weather running. And that leads to function: these pants did great in 33-deg weather. Not a lot of wind, but crisp, cold air. I wore these over my singlet one-piece and was fine. Overall, a great pair of pants that perform well in the weather. We'll see how the durability is over time.
Super comfy and WARM!
I like the feel of these pants. The material is soft and smooth and has compression. the pants do not feel too tight and seem to disappear after a while. By disappear, I mean they do everything they are supposed to do but don't draw attention to themselves like some other pants I have worn. I hope that makes sense. the detailing is nice too. they have lightning bolts down the legs in a smoke color? I also like the zippered ankle cuffs and pocket at the hip. The pocket fits my phone and has a separate zippered section that can hold gels, a house key, or anything small you might want to take with you. the pocket in these pants is why I bought them. I have some Zoot tri shorts and the pockets are great also
One thing I do not like though is how loose the ankles are. They rest flush against my ankles but don't really compress. It is not really a big deal but I had to pull the pants up a little higher so they would feel tight a the lowest point. This is probably more of a personal thing but I did want to point that out in case some of y'all are like me. Also the stitching at the inside of the knee, where the panels meet, sticks out a little or you could say is raised a little. Kinda of like the little dimple you get when you put something on a hanger for a long time. Again this is not a real problem. It does not feel bad and has no consequence on anything else. Its more of me being picky. The two issues I pointed out are only things that stand out because of the other types of tights i have used to run in.
Overall these a a great pair of pants. Good Feel. Good storage. Nice design. Kept me warm(running in 35-45 degree weather). If you are reading this Zoot, I would like to suggest that the ankles taper a little more.
