POCKET JOGGER CAPRIS
Pockets, pockets, and more pockets. Better yet: pockets that work hard, that are in the most useful places on the body, and that don't leave you looking or feeling like a cargo courier. All this in the most popular capri length and in our premium Nyelle Compression fabric. Plus O's signature pintuck detailing. The sum so much greater than its pocket or parts.
- Nyelle Compression (nylon/spandex)
- mesh on side panels and behind knee
- 4 pockets: 3 on waistband, 1 on side of leg
- interior infinity drawcord
- 18" inseam (size 4)
I am a loyal Oiselle fan and try to buy a few running shorts/capris per year. I wish Oiselle made more bottoms with phone pockets but my options are limited. I bought these as a longer version of the Pocket Jogger shorts. However, I could barely squeeze into the size 4s even though the size 4 in the shorts fits great. I swear with these I would need an 8, which is an insane "swing" as far as sizes go. I know Oiselle runs super small to begin with but these were ridiculous. Since I ran in them and couldn't return them, it was a complete waste of money!
I really do love these leggings, so many pockets and the top part doesn't fold or fall down at all. The only part that keeps it from 5 is that it does ride up on my calfs and gets tucked behind my knees occasionally. But overall, so comfortable, so great to wear when I am pushing it with the weather being cold, they keep my upper legs warm and fit AMAZING up top! I am 125 and wear a size 4, I always struggle because I've got big hips and they were a little tight putting on, but not too tight they are uncomfortable in any way. I would stick with your regular sizing and trust the chart.
I love these tights so much. I'm tall and often have issues with tights pulling down as I run. I don't have to tie the drawstring on these to keep them in place, even with my phone in the side pocket and more goodies in the other pockets. I really love the stretch and weight of the fabric, there's something really comfortable and supportive about it. I usually have my phone in the side pocket, key in the back zip pocket, and dog bag in one waist pocket if needed. If my hands get hot, I stuff gloves in the waist pockets, I can also stuff my lightweight jacket down enough to fit a waist pocket. Lip balm and energy bites fit well in waist pockets, too. I have them in both curfew and burgen and am having a hard time telling myself I don't also need the green.
Love the pocket jogger line - but was surprised that these capris have only one side pocket because the shorts have one on each leg. I like the softness of the fabric but it does collect sweat and does not dry as fast as other fabrics. They are very stretchy / size down if between sizes. Size 4 fits me at 132# / 5'8".
I tried out a pair of these, and while I LOVED the pockets all over for carrying things on runs, I found the mesh material at the back of the knees to be too itchy to keep them.
Love all the pockets! Was still recovering from a cold on a recent run and was able to carry tissues and cough drops (along with my usual phone and keys) and still have pockets to store garbage until I could find a trash can - fabulous! The only thing I'm not thrilled with is the high rise as that extra fabric is restrictive to me. I've noticed a lot of companies are making running tights with higher rises so it seems like it's back in style, but it just doesn't work with my body type.
I wore these for the first time on my run last night and I'm a true believer. I felt like I wasn't wearing pants! The material is PERFECT. I can tell that I will be able to run long and not get chaffed (a big problem with my sensitive skin). I will now be buying in all the colors. The pocket on the leg is perfect for my phone too!
I really loved the dark teal color of these and that they held my phone with no issue. They stayed in place much better than other brands that I've tried. Unfortunately, they do not pass the long run test. I got back from my run this weekend and it looked like I peed myself - not cute! I really wasn't sweating *that* much as we've finally had some cooler weather. Definitely bummed - these will have to be relegated to short, cool-weather runs.
