Amazing but needs higher back rise
I absolutely LOVE the base fabric and the reinforcement panels (plus the red color!) so much on these leggings I know I’ll enjoy them often, but I completely agree with the previous reviewer - the back rise is too short. With a minor fit rebalance so the back seat/waistband is higher up on the back, it’d be a perfect fit. I also sorta wish the knee panels extended just a little farther down on the knee, but I’m also pretty tall (5’10”) so that may just be how I fit them. Love the length - it’s perfect - long enough but not too long. I can’t wait to get these out on the rock.
Great material, not great waist design
The material is stretchy and durable. Love the reinforced seams and abrasion resistant areas. The waist is not designed for having a butt, though. The back is lower than the front and you can't pull it up because the abrasion panel doesn't stretch. Also would prefer just a stretchy waistband over the cord. A half stretchy waistband with a stretchy cord is not the best design for a close fit. It doesn't actually stay tight to the body and makes weird lines on your hips.
