These fit like expensive clothing. A great look! Fit is true to size. Initially I was not crazy about the white insert, but with a great fit I can live with it.

Great Pants!

Love, love, love these capris! The fit is superb, and they are cool and comfortable. I also love the pocket in the back - perfect for my lip moisturizer while I'm working out.

These pants are the best running pants! They stay close to my body and I never have to adjust them while I am running. The color is fun and it's not to flashy! Thanks Altec!!!!

Awesome running pants
September 15, 2011

These capris fit absolutely great. I love the material too. Best purchase yet from Altrec. These pants are not too tight or too loose. I wear a size 4 to 6 pant and got the small, they fit perfect.

Pros: Great design, Performance

Very Versatile
October 14, 2010

Love the fit, the feel and the versatility. The product hugs the body without feeling constricted. The close fit keeps me warm when I start my run, the capri style allows air to my legs whenI begin to warm up. And the back pocket is a gift - place to put my kleenex! A great all around product.

They are good enough
February 02, 2011

I love pearl zumi usually in all my purchases. I was a bit disappointed in the weight and shine of these capris. They fit well, and are cute, but I can't really do hard core weight training or running in them, too light weight. Fun to wear, just not my fav training pants.

Nice Knickers!
September 16, 2010

Got these for the Imogene run and they were great. Super comfortable and easy. I didn't think about them at all while I was running, which I think is a good thing. They do run small (like all Pearl Izumi), I got a medium but I usually wear a small. 5'6, 130.

Love these!
June 27, 2012

I ran with these last night after a few outings of just walking. They were perfect and I am going to order additional pairs. I was worried about the waistband at first, but the cord worked just fine to make the adjustments I needed for comfort and to make sure they didn't fall or roll down while running. The coral splash of color on the side is a bonus. I am ordering more!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value, comfortable and stayed put

Good Product
February 23, 2010

Good fit, supportive but not binding. I have been using these pants to run longer distances. No rolling seams, very comfortable. I wear a true size 6, but a size medium fits well.

it'very comfortable
October 30, 2011

The size fits me very well. I like it very much. It's my first choice when I do running exercise. The color is a little dark.Next time, I wanna get one bright color.

May 03, 2010

I bought these because of pearl izumi usually fitting well and for both compression and flattery, these however were longer in length on me than in the photo and I did not feel any compression in my fit. I love pearl izumi, this just isn't my capri and will have to send back. :(

Love it, just not...
April 25, 2011

Love the Pearl Izumi Aurora splice knicker. I have two in Black/bBlue. Bought it from Altrec in Shadow/Rose. The fabric of the ones in shadow/rose is not as supportive as the black ones. The fabric is also shinier. That said they are still very comfortable and functional. I would still recommend these knickers just be aware that the black ones are far superior to the shadow-colored ones. The quality--especially the black kind--is outstanting! I have owned them for several years and wear them frequently for powerwalks.

Value for money.
November 30, 2011

Bought it as a present to my daughter, she liked it so much she got a second one. She's using it for cycling, best to wear in autumn and spring. Not very warm for winter cycling. She is 5'10 thin legs, Medium was a bit tight so she got a L Size up. H

I ordered the Large in these capris and they were about a size 4. No way were they gonna fit!

Overall good
March 13, 2010

Very comfortable! Breathes nicely and fits comfortably around the waist. Moves with your body, and almost forget you are wearing them! A little short in the legs for an XS if you are taller and thin, but other than that, highly recommended.

Very good knickers for cool weather riding. Fit and quality are excellent. Stylish touch on the bottoms with the contrasting color -- looking forward to using them on all my fall and winter rides.

Great for running
September 05, 2012

These are really comfortable and keep you warm on slightly cooler days. Great for long runs and definitely do not restrict your stride at all. Would highly recommend it.

Feels great
August 27, 2011

These will be my favorite work out pants. I put them on as soon as they arrived and didn't want to take them off. Fabric is so comfortable and they fit is perfectly. It feels like high quality pants for any kind of activity. They felt great in a gym and even outside in hot weather. I should buy more in different colors!!

Form-fitting comfort from thighs up to waist. Loose fitting around the calves. I'm 5'3" between a size 6 and 8. Purchased the medium size and found a perfect fit. Very comfortable to wear when running.
