Runder Under Tights, Run With Rover Pant, Bundle Up Jacket, and More

Black/Alberta Lake/ Raspberry Glo Light

Black/Tender Violet

Heathered Silver Slate

I can't tell from the descriptions whether the new Runder Under Tights are reversible or not. The Alberta Lake/Raspberry Glo Light tights shown in the top photos are black on the other side, as shown in the third photo. I think the color meant to be on the outside is black but maybe they are reversible. If anyone knows for sure let us know. Just read that the Black/Alberta Lake/Raspberry Glo Light are reversible.






Photos of the First Base tank made of running luon and diamond mesh. I'm having trouble envisioing under what circumstances I'd like to wear a rulu tank. If it's cool enough for rulu, I think I'd be wearing a short sleeve shirt. It's very cute, though and I love the longer back.


The new Bundle Up Jacket and Run With Rover Pant. The hood is removable from the jacket and can be moved to another jacket that has "luxchange" interchangeable pieces. Neither of these pieces are interesting to me.

Daily On Duffel Bags. These are so cute but look a little small for me.

The Bundle Up jacket is so comfortable, my store had it in all black and I snapped it up. Oddly enough the price tag in the store said $228 but it rang in at the website price of $198 (phew!) It does look strange in the pics/on the hanger but it's actually quite styling in person.

the rulu on the first base tank is thin, much thinner than the short sleeved rulu shirts. Definitely thin enough to work out and sweat in.

I love the idea of the rulu tank, but only for its intended purpose as a base layer. I usually wear tanks under my pullovers, and having a warmer version would let me go a few degrees cooler without adding a vest or a jacket. That being said, I don't know if I'm willing to pay LLL prices for something that would not really be seen..... Definitely trying it on tho!

im surprised but i really like the idea of the 'run with rover pant'...i live in a horribly cold climate and i like the idea of a 'track' pant with running tights for a two layer thing. i do this already with long johns and gortex...long johns under tights etc.

problem is the fit looks so so strange and i hate pleats. i wish they were just cool track pant style with tights underneath, i do think its a viable design idea for cold climates.

im almost wanting to try them but they look so strange. why does the good idea stuff have to be so strangely designed?????

Store report:

Tried on the runder under black/reversible AB raspberry. They seem a lot thinner than the Rulu running tights I have from last year. I don't see how this would be warmer than luxtreme tights, imho. I would wait for fleeced power luxtreme is you are looking for winter tights. The pink/teal colors looked horrible together to me.

My store had the rulu tanks, but I didn't see much point to a cold weather tank.

I finally got to try the runder under longsleeve and just didn't like the fabric. Too stiff and it made the fit really boxy. The star runner LS was much more fitted and cozy and soft in comparison. I really want the Turn Around LS to return.

I exchanged the teal herringbone WU for the BS ones. I always take a 6 in WUs and ditto for the teal herringbone, but I had to size up to an 8 for the BS ones. They were cut so much tighter, I could barely get my feet thru the ankle opening in the 6. The 8 fit exactly like the 6 in the teal.

I hoped to see the Devotion LS, but no luck.

I'd wear the first base tank as a base layer under a long sleeve top like 1/4 zip swiftly as part of a cold weather running layering system. I don't think it was intended to wear on its own. It's cute though.

Ugh, I went to the store and to try these on and was so disappointed with the pink shin guards. Soooo ugly! And even on the black side, you can kind of see through them against the calf--the material looks lighter with the pink behind it.

Anyway, even without the color issues, they weren't going to be a certain purchase--soft and comfy but lighter than I had expected. I'm going to wait to see what else they come out with. I found them TTS, for reference, to luon pants. Definitely wouldn't be a size up item, IMO.

I also tried on the new Rulu tank. EXTREMELY comfortable and fairly cute, but like you said LLA, can't imagine a scenario where I'd want to wear a Rulu tank top. I prefer wearing something with sleeves when I'm running with a jacket on to protect the jacket from my armpits! (TMI?). Buuut if this makes it to WMTM I'd probably get one, just for the pure comfort factor.

One other thought I had about the new Raspberry Glo Light color--I wonder if there is just a "Raspberry Glo" color? If so I will be interested to see that!

I was really excited for the Run with Rover pants as I like lined, esp inner leggings...but, can we say "Stop. Hammer time"??. Yikes

Have you heard if they are going to come out with a Define jacket in the Alberta Lake color?

I am curious about the pants. I think they look cute. I don't really have any cold weather running or outdoor workout pants. Can't wait to try them on.
The rest of he stuff i can pass.

Is rulul too hot for the gym? Love the first base tank, but I don't want to buy it if I'll be too hot inside!

Sophia said...

I don't like the color blocking on the reverse side of the runder unders....until I saw the TV! Those are sooo pretty. But they weren't part of the upload, right?

(Apologies in advance if this posts twice, I'm experiencing some tech issues)
Heads up, guys: tender violet bleeds!!
I bought the Tender Violet CRB last week, and while I loved the color, it bled onto one of my white tanks. I thought the bleeding issues were a thing of the past, as I hadn't seen the warnings about washing bright colours in several weeks, and hadn't heard about them in awhile. Sadly this issue is still alive and kicking since my Tender Violet CRB bled. It's so frustrating that we are approaching ONE. WHOLE. YEAR. of bleeding issues with no resolution in sight. But I wanted to pass along the warning, so when everyone receives their new stuff they wash with caution :)

I have been waiting for another cute, comfortable and well fitting bra less tank besides CRB. Got this one today and I love the look and feel. I always wear a 4 in CRB and I had to size up in this. The 4 was too tight for my comfort level. Super flattering and functional!

LuluAddict said...

@ KS - That is a bummer. I have the Bordeaux Drama CRB and haven't had any problems with that one. Thanks for the heads up.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:30 pm - I think it's too warm for the gym. Rulu is like a stretchy lightweight flannel.

LLA: You are lucky your BD CRB did not bleed. This was not the case with the BD Aphrodite Tank that I bought.

Sandra said...

Anyone care to share how the TV CRB feels? I'm curious and haven't heard anything other than it may bleed.

Anonymous said...

BD star runner bleeds as well.

I bought the black/alberta lake/raspberry Runder Under, but now that I see the black/tender violet, I will take mine back and wait for that color to be available. I thought maybe they were reversible, but the pictures on the website are only of the black side, so I was delightfully surprised when I saw them in person. I agree, they were a LOT thinner than I expected, and seemed shorter than WU, so when flipped up for reflectivity, they were too short. But I still like them.

I feel really lucky that I have not yet had any of my colors from Lulu bleed! I know that some of the colors bleed while out running and that is frustrating but I am not sure that I would wash a color as bright as TV with a white tank. I always separate my laundry so whites/lights are separate and colors like TV are washed with other bight, dark colors because even companies with no bad history of bleeding will have darks that can bleed on lights if washed together. Regardless bleeding sucks especially with workout clothes as expensive as Lulu!

I didn't like the new rulu items. The Runder Under pants were soft but also thin and somewhat sheer. I could see them start to pill very fast. As someone else said, I don't see these being any warmer than luxtreme. Major letdown. I tried on the rulu tank- also very thin. It felt like a cheap tank that I could purchase from any store. Neither item is worth the price as far as I'm concerned.

raspberry glo looks AMAZING with alberta lake! if TV or creamsicle aren't good colours for you, try the RG (or paris pink...).

i got the bundle up jacket in AL and the new bag in AL...yes, a bit smaller than other gym bags.

Anonymous said...

I can't believe there are still bleeding issues. I know if you wash many items the first time they may bleed a little, that is the reson for pre-washing before wearing. Now if this keeps happening like all my flash and paris pink items that I have worn many,many times, then that is awful. The funny thing about the bleeders, even though they bleed profusely they aren't fading. must be some seriously toxic dye.

I got the bundle up jacket today and its fantastic. I'll be VERY mad at myself if the price drops in half in 2 weeks like others before it.
