At Oiselle, our vision is to help all women feel strong and free through the joy of running. Our mission is to design great product, build the sisterhood, and improve the sport. May we all experience the transformative power of sports and community.
New and notable. We took our expertise in creating the best knickers and added as much pocket power as possible. We started with our Plya Compression, which is loved for being smooth, compressive, and lightweight. And then we added pockets in all the places where we know it's best to stash and carry. On the waistband, these babies have a rear zip pocket and two mesh pockets. On the side of the legs, there are drop in pockets and two small zip pockets. Just in case. From lip balm to cash to card keys to phones, we want to carry your things (in style)!
- Plya Interlock fabric (polyester / spandex)

- two side leg pockets that fit a phone
- two side zip pockets
- interior drawcord
- 16.5" inseam (all sizes)
I love these because they aren’t as thick as the pocket jogger/pocket capris. These are perfect for the PNW rainy season, just warm enough. They come up nice and high for me. I am usually a 6 or 8 in Oiselle, the 6’s are perfect. I have had them for months and they still provide excellent compression. Too many pockets for me, but If you are marathon training without a pack, they would be good for snacks and stuff.
I have had a pair of the pockito knickers for about 2 years now and they are still just as functional as when I got them. The only wear is a few stitches starting to fray/loosen. I got these when I started trying to run regularly and was infuriated with leggings that would pull down every five strides. These things stay put and I haven't had to use the drawcord yet, even with a phone, keys, etc in pockets! I will say like some other people said, these aren't really compression for me. Maybe if I sized down I would feel a bit more compression but also maybe it's the gentle hug they give that actually allows them to stay up, as there are no tight areas to serve as pull sources to yank them down. I have decently thick thighs, am 5'7" and anywhere from 150-165 and a size 8 has worked well for me. I hope they make these full length as I think the zippered pockets would make them awesome travel pants!
I continually find that I'm loving these knickers, but I'm especially loving them for water sports! I am not a woman who feels totally comfortable hanging out in just my swimsuit when I'm kayaking or paddle boarding and these have become my go to bottom for these activity. They are relatively quick drying for a legging, but also are comfortable to wear around when they're wet. They're lightweight but still compressive. In the hot weather I've been loving these! I'm now getting ready to find what else I can buy in this fabric!
I have several pairs of Oiselle shorts/knickers in the Plya fabric. The Team Knicker, and the Firecracker were outstanding for compression, quality, and durability. Unfortunately, just after a few months of wear, the fabric is totally stretched out and the wavy seams are not my favorite. Way too many zippers and pockets. Bring back the heavier compression and two side pockets like your old Firecracker tights. Will not be ordered these again.
