Pockets are revolutionary
I bought these in Fall '17 in blue with the reflective paintbrush detailing. Like others said, since the style update they run smaller than they used to. I got my normal size 6, and it may have been better to size up to 8. The compression is significant, but welcome for running. If I were to wear them for yoga or lifting I may size up. Depends how you like them to fit.
The overwhelmingly most exciting thing about these capris are the pockets. There are two GIANT pockets (rear + side leg) and two smaller mesh pockets (on waist band). The second greatest thing is the reflective detailing. I would love to have even more of that (maybe a KC/pocket capri hybrid?). Finally, I am neutral about the mesh panels. When they stay put, they are fine, if I wear the capris higher and I allow the mesh to bunch up behind my knees, it is itchy. But luckily the capris stay put and don't bunch up behind they knee while running. Please add pockets like these to more tights and capris! Gloves, chapstick, bars, gels, trash, pepper spray, keys, light rain shell, phone, cash, cards, grocery list, hair ties, ---> have been waiting for decades for a home in women's running clothing. You did it, Oiselle, Bravo. Let's go wild and add another one on the left leg?!
Two small negatives: I am personally not a fan of the infinity waist tie, would prefer the regular kind because it is more versatile. Also, for some reason, one of the seams hits my lady parts at an unfortunate location, so I need to wear underwear when I wear these.

I wish I got a bigger size!
The overall style of these are great! I love the pockets, especially the side one, which perfectly fits an iPhone without it moving around. When I first got them, they seemed pretty tight, good compression, but they seemed to fit much tighter than previous styles. I figured it would be okay. I have ran in them several times but I really just needed to send them back and get a bigger size. They are also sheer - could be the size issue though.

More colors please!
Thank you to the earlier reviewers for the warning to size up! I got both the Burgen and Curfew colors in size 8 (I'm 5'6", 140 lb) and even with the larger size than I wear in the capri or shorts, I feel the snuggly compression hug. They are so comfortable- too warm for summer runs, but that's what shorts are for! I am long-waisted so really appreciate the high waist band- no need to hike up or unroll the waistband while running. I have yet to make use of all the pockets at the same time, but i love that my iPhone6 can be securely zipped in. The pintuck details are flattering even for my thick legs. Please, Oiselle, make more colors (green!, brown!) and include this awesome phone pocket in all your bottoms!

Love the reflectivity, but miss the old fabric
I own a pair of the original pocket joggers from Spring 2017, and a pair of this updated version. Be aware...Oiselle changed the fabric on these and they do not fit the same as the original version. The new fabric seems much more compressive, with less "give", which I believe is why they seem to run a bit small. I'm a solid 6 in other O tights, and the 6 in these just barely fits (for reference, I am 5'6", 140 lbs). I've also never been a fan of mesh panels behind the knee (I don't find them comfortable--maybe due to the seams?), but it's a small price to pay for all those wonderful pockets! If the fabric hadn't changed, I'd consider buying these in all the available colors, but I'll hold off for now and see if they get switched back to the original fabric at some point.

Okay!!! Five stars on Love for the pants!!!
But Size not good for me!
I am size 4 USUALLY but not in these, when I pulled them on (and they are nice and compressing !) I could hear stitches ripping!!!
That's why I am not sending them back
I am 5'7" 120#
I hate playing the size game, the size shouldn't change from the ones you are set in.
So I will size up because of Love of the pant!!!
I really like the phone pocket, that you Should repeat on other pants!!!!
- Phone pocket
- Hate that the size not accurate to my usual!!
perfect long distance pants!
My partner went to the flagship for me on a trip to Seattle and the staff were awesome and told him to bring me home these capris (among other treats). Woohoo, thanks ladies! I don't run with stuff, but i love the pockets (completely unobtrusive when empty), but mostly I love that I put them on for the first time, went out for a 32K LSD in the rain and did not tug, hitch, or readjust them one time and not a hint of fabric chafe when I got home!
'Nuff said, these are great.
- super comfy from the get go!
Reminds me of the Aero Capri---But Fancier
These are fun capris!!! Seriously lots of pockets and very handy! The waist band isn't too tight, even with the extra fabric for the pockets. SUPER FLATTERING!!! Love these, buying all colors!
Reminds me of the Aero Capri---But Fancier becasue of pockets and mesh details.
more colors, please!
I bought these crops for the pockets and love them so much that I'm considering a second pair, and would definitely have ordered another pair already if there were more color choices.
My only issue is that the wide waistband space isn't well utilized in the front - it doesn't have any pockets like many of my other pants. It's just kind of wasted space that could be used more efficiently.
- fit, pockets!
- more colors needed, wide waistband could be better utilized for a pocket in the front
Those are marathon pants!
That's what my significant other said when I showed off all of the pockets on these great capris. They fit great -- super soft and stretchy -- and the thigh pocket was perfect for my iPhone 6. Waist pockets will have plenty of space for long training runs. I might just go sign up for my next marathon now...
- Fit, functionality.
- Nothing! I wish that the same pocket functionality were available in a tight short.
LOVE these...but it took some getting used to.
The pocket jogger design is brilliant. The phone pocket really works (iphone 6 plus), as does the zip pocket in back and small side pockets for gels. At first try-on, the high waistband felt funny, but then i loaded the pockets and ran a technical trail 25k in them with no fussing or chafing and they didn't "travel south"when sweaty, late in the game. I heeded the warnings of other reviewers and sized up to a 6 from my regular 4. It seems that at my 5'5", 128 lbs, i'm smack between sizes for Oiselle. The 6 fits fine, but almost no compression and a little baggie across the hips in the front. Other plusses - the capri length hits perfectly at mid-calf and doesn't bunch up towards the knee. The drawstring stays put and is not noticeable. Love these capris and their very thoughtful design.
- Super useful pockets and I'm now a high-waistband convert!
- Not Oiselle's fault, but I'm just right between a size 4 and a size 6 and wish these had a bit more compression.

My favourite part of the Sunday recovery long run is that I have the opportunity to stop and smell the roses, or take pictures. The pocket joggers make this so much easier because my phone fits perfectly in the side pocket (post-run coffee money in the other pocket)
- That I can bring the kitchen sink running with me
- would love a slightly lower waist band.

Finally awesome capris that carry a ton!
I am so happy with these! I love the pockets on the side and in the back that are large enough for my iPhone 6. The additional small pockets are perfect size for small items. The drawstring is another huge plus! I am 5'3" and 122lbs and I ordered the 6. I have the same size in other tights from this company and I think these run true to size. Keep the colors coming Oiselle, you've got a winner here!
- Nothing yet!
The Perfect Pair!
Ran in the Pocket Joggers for the first time this weekend and in love! These are my favorite Oiselle capris ever. There is the perfect amount of compression - I feel like everything is held in together without suffocating. I also like the waistband, pleat detailing, and of course the pockets. The zipper pouch in the bag can fit my S7. I am 5'2" and the capris hit my mid-calf, which I prefer.

So comfortable and room for my phone! I'll be buying more!
