I bought these on Black Friday and wasn’t sure what to expect beyond loving the fit of my other Zoot apparel. When they arrived I quickly put them on and was instantly impressed with the fit, quality and warmth that they provided. They’ve quickly become my favorite go to for leisure and workouts. My only disappointment is that I didn’t buy two pairs. I am 6’2 and weigh 190, and find that they fit me perfectly. I quickly looked to purchase another pair, but found out that they were sold out of my size (L), but will buy them once the inventory is restocked.
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.
