FIRECRACKER REFLECTIVE 3/4 TIGHTS
The length (3/4), the convenience (two side pockets), the safety (reflective birds and geometric lines), and the tried and true body fabric (Plya Interlock) makes the Firecracker Tights a fun, fierce, fiery staple for year-round running. The reflectivity, in a premium all-over print, is bright and long lasting! So leap, jump, run into those dark hours. You will be seen.

These will not be my go-to, top of the list, tights for running, however, I am keeping them because the reflectiveness is awesome! The reason they are not my favorite is the fit. I am 5ft, 130lbs, so petite and curvy. I bought a size 6 which is the size I normally wear in other running brands. The top of the waistband waist is very restrictive and digs into my waist while I run. However, the legs are oddly baggy at the bottom (this may be because of my height and they don't make petites...). Since it has a drawstring I'm not sure why they made the waistband so restrictive. But I can handle some uncomfort to not get run over by a car while I'm running. :)
I love the Firecracker pants. I got a 10 and I'm 5'4" 160lbs. They fit perfect, even maybe a little loose in the waist and around the calves. Since I'm short, they're more like full-length leggings which is what I prefer anyway! My only gripe with these is that you can definitely see through them in the Crackle/orange color. I have black underwear on and it's not just a "when I bend over" situation - it's a "while I'm standing just looking in the mirror." I'll just wear nude underwear with these because I love them so much but just buyer beware!
I ordered a medium and they were just slightly small on me (I'm 5'6" and about 135 lbs.). They felt fine. I really like the side pockets that are big enough to accommodate a cell phone.
and pockets! Perfect for phone. great reflective pattern, very bright, gives me confidence running at night
These crops are SUPER reflective and so pretty. I got the paisley design and they are cute even in daylight. The fit is great - nice high rise. Not as compressive as I would prefer, but still a good fit.
These pants are a lot softer and quieter than I anticipated. They are not the most flattering or warm pants, but the pattern is really cute and when I don't make it home to run before dark in my very urban neighborhood, these help get me out the door. The BB color is so fun and I love knowing that I'm seen and safe, especially around rush hour. I have very big leg muscles, and these are the only tights I own that bunch behind my knees, but that makes it easier to fit these over other leggings when it's really cold out. I'm very grateful to have these when I would consider skipping my run and I tell myself that I bought 'em, so I better use 'em!! If you run in the dark a lot, they are a good investment and are much cuter than a safety vest! :)
When I first got these in the mail, I thought they felt really light. I even considered sending them back. I would have really missed out if I had. The "lightness" has kept me from overheating. They have become my preferred tights during the cold winter nights running the lake. So comfortable! And durable....I unfortunately fell running today and skinned up.my knee. Not so much as a snag on the tights. The steampunk graphic is cool too.
I love the fit- the first pair of running tights I've ever bought that fit my small waist and runner thighs. They don't fall down! The reflectivity is wonderful too. I bought the tights with the long sleeve crop, and am definitely visible to cars during my 5am runs. I agree with another reviewer that the seams are probably a bit scratchy for long runs, but have suited me fine for 5 milers.
