Did the US get the Devotion LS in Love Red or was it just Canada? I hope I didn't miss it, it's beautiful! Also hoping they come out with a Vinyasa in Love Red or Love Red Slope. :)

I really like the pleasing pant in the first photo, makes me want them...thanks for posting such great pics of the new gear LLA.

BLECK- I don't like the blue/yellow combo - I haven't bought anything in months. All my winter stuff looks perfect from last year. If browns come along I'll be in trouble - but me no likey these colors.

The waist is so high in the limitless blue runder unders. I'll have to go try this on. It would be warm for the body but also would love the compression.

Liking the blue RUs...except for the yellow showing through.

Anyone see any other Iris Flower stuff aside from the Scuba Stretch?

Focus said...

Are the runder unders really compressive? I'm starting to be tempted by them if that is truly the case.

Pleasing Pant looks dumpy/sloppy.

Remaining in dislike on the color blocking. Not on my body, not even if it goes to wmtm. However, the woman in the red/black does look great. (Still not buying)

@Focus - the Runder Unders are no more compressive than a pair of Wunder Unders...they're definitely not compressive like the luxtreme running tights that lulu makes. i would call them supportive rather than compressive. i have heard of people wearing runder unders as baselayers underneath the bright at night pants which are compressive - this way you get the warmth and softness of the rulu with the compression of the luxtreme

@anon 5:07 - agreed. not liking the pleasing pants at all. something about the ankle makes them look weird. i LOVE my tea lounge pants though, which i can wear out with ballet flats and not look sloppy. i think the tea lounge were a much better incarnation of the skinny sweatpant idea

@ Focus: My herringbone Runder Unders are not compressive. They are super soft & comfy and I have enjoyed running in them. They stay up and in place. However, I am hoping that the luxtreme version of the RUs that LLA posted from an Austrailian PN a week or so ago have more compression. Wish the Ice Queen pants were made like tights at the bottom... Otherwise, they look just perfect. Wonder if I could get them altered to a tight-fitting leg?

Question for the winter runners... What pants do you wear? I'm looking for some compression but also something wind and water resistant. I heard the brushed wunder unders are good fir cold weather but those arent water resistant, right? I run in sub 20 temps and currently layer over my long tights when I need to but I'd much prefer something all in one. Would the ice pant do the trick? As well as keep me warm?

@ Anon 2:35 - There were Iris Flower Vinyasa scarves in the 10/29 upload - they lasted until about 7:30 a.m. ET on the US side - kicking myself for not getting one - it's such a pretty shade! Been eagle-eyeing the sites for anything else Iris Flower to no avail...:(

I tried on Runder Unders last night and they were not compressive at all! They were much less so than standard wunder under pants. While they felt super cozy, I would not like to run in them at all due to the lack of compression.

I really like the Love Red Toasty Pullover, but $128?! No thanks.

Agree with others about the Pleasing Pant - they look sloppy.

Love the Limitless Blue Neck Warmer and Ear Warmer - such a pretty shade of blue. I'm really liking the Love Red and Limitless Blues!

@anon 8:54 - i wear a pair of compression luxtreme tights (i think they might be full tilt tights? no sure), and then over top a pair of outward bound pants - these were realeased in december 2011 and 2010..they are cut like the ice queen pant...tech fleece inside/back with full length glyde (wind/water resistant) panels on the front of the legs. this way i have compression, warmth, and wind protection.

i think you're going to have trouble finding an all in one pant for those conditions simply because you *need* layers to stay warm in those kinds of temps. unless you manage to find super thick neoprene running pants (basically the bottom half of a wetsuit) - that's the only thing i can think of that would be warm, wind resistant, and still cut like a tight. otherwise, for winter a layering system is the way to go.

My store just sent out a product announcement for the new Forme jacket. It looks like this one is brushed and I am not at all a fan of the color blocking on that too!

to Anon 8:54,

I run in cw-x insulator tights for my cold BC winters. They compress fantastically and I don't even notice the km's pile up, they really work. I also love my Bright at Night which are compressive, so they will stay up when wet, but I choose my cw-x tights when its snowing or more than a misty rain. I returned my Runders because I ran by a bush and where I was gently brushed by a branch, a huge wet spot was left on my leg. Cold and wet!! So those pants were a fail for me.

I have run in my runder unders and find them just fine but I don't run with compressive tights in general. I thought they were really comfy and wicked very well. They are super soft and I liked them so much I got more. I heart Rulu!!!

Unknown said...

I think the Ice Queen pants will do good for you - those or the Outward Bound pants from previous seasons if you can find them. I also read that the Clear as mud pants are quite warm and compressive as well! Although I sized up in the IQ pants, I did get to try on my regular 6 and while they were nice and compressive, they were just a little too uncomfortably tight in the waist - but I have more of a straight waist to hip line. They are nice and high though but I still have some concern about them falling down so I am not sure about keeping the 8s...got to try on the Dog Runners and while the inner tight was AMAZINGLY soft, I just couldn't justify keeping them - not really sure I would wear them casually as it's not my style. Otherwise, they were really nice and comfy :) My local store had the Puddle jumper marked down to $149 and I picked up the my mantra pants on sale! These are soooo comfy and actually cute on!

off topic question but do anyone know if the raspberry glo color runs? I bought the long sleeve swiftly and would like to layer it now that its cold out but do not want it to ruin anything if it runs ( as haappend to me with paris pink last year!)

Unknown said...

anyone notice in that one pic of the girl stretching forward, you can see the yellow on her shin through the blue of her RU tights? I don't know if that is a deal breaker for me because I do not see the RG through my black/AL/RG runder unders but not sure if i want to see that yellow coming through the blue...

Hey folks, just wanted to share that I got my Clear as Mud pants yesterday and tried them on today. (I was the one asking about winter running pants last week.)

They run very tight - beyond compressive - IMO. But a bigger issue is that the seam hits in the back of my knee and rubs (just from wearing them around for 10 minutes). I know a lot of the comments on Lulu site are complaining that they have to have them hemmed and are losing a lot of the 'gaitor' material, but if you have long legs and the length is perfect, you may need to contend with the seam in the back of the knee (I am sensitive to seams).

Also, I really wish Lulu would update website/stores when they change a product but keep the same name. The Ultimate padded socks have changed. They are now thinner and not as perfect for running. You can tell the new ones because they have more of a herringbone pattern in the non-padded parts and now say "faster than" "stink" The old, thicker ones say "run" "fast" - different word on each foot. Well, just thought I'd share.

Anon 2:23 pm - so would you then recommend sizing up in the CAM pants?? I am dying to get to one particular store that I KNOW has them in stock to try and hopefully buy! I'm on the shorter end, 5'4, so I'm hoping to not have the seam issue.

Does anyone know what the reverse side of the black/heathered coal runder unders look like? Heather coal throughout, or color blocking? Am not a fan of the color blocking. Thanks!

@ 8:54 AM, unfortunately LLL does not yet make a pant or tight good enough in my opinion and experience for true Winter running (I'm in Ontario, Canada). I am a hardcore runner of many years. I'd strongly recommend MEC (Mountain Equipment Co-op) running leggings. I currently run in an amazing pair of Saucony tights (don't remember the name/style) but they are in need of replacement. New Balance also has good options. I'm hoping LLL will come through with something serious for Winter running, but so far it's just pretty pretty, not good enough.

An iris flower vinyasa? I don't remember seeing that one.

@ 2:23 PM, thanks for the tip off. I did not know they changed them. That is VERY annoying. I love the UPRS as it was! I bought another new pair not too long ago...now I'm going to have to go back to the stores to see if I can get the better originals. Gosh! I swear they do this just so customers stock up now (i.e. get your money asap) because you don't want the new product of lesser/inferior quality, and will change it back to better/original in the future. So irritating!

Everything's still marked 'Special Edition' on the website?!

I agree with 4:53pm:
Although I'm not a hardcore runner, I run several times a week outside. Lululemon does not cut it for me during the winter even though pretty. I love Under Armour's cold winter gear. They also have great customer service and return policy. Plain items (ie all black pants) but practical.

I agree with everyone who has made a comment regarding lulu winter gear. I prefer other brands for wet and cold weather. marmot,icebreaker, new balance and patagonia.
Lulu jackets are cute if you are going from a class to your car and then home or shopping indoors.
I spend a lot of time outdoors, and the lulu stuff does not cut it.

Unknown: Anon 2:23 here, yes, sizing up in the CAM pants helped me with the waist a lot. Unfortunately, I didn't run in them (because of the seam, they're going back) but they seemed to fit well and since they have the drawstring, I would have gone with a size up if I was keeping them. For reference, I am normally a 4-6 in WUs, 6 in Bright at Night and compression crops and studio pants, 4 in still pants/shorts, 6 tall in grooves. I had one pair of brushed leggings last year (with the snowflake pattern at ankle) that I went up to an 8 in and they do not have a drawstring but stay up perfectly well on me. I also have a pair of denim insight pants in 8. I'm 5'8" 130 lbs and a waist like a 12-yo boy with go-go gadget legs. Reviews on Lulu site are mixed for TTS versus size up for CAM. Hope this helps!
