So close to perfect... but not quite
I was SO excited when these came out. I bought both the small and the medium after watching the Instagram promo videos. Unfortunately the reviews were right- the small fit my legs so well but the high waisted top--while super stylish--was so disproportionally tight that the small didn't work. The medium waist was perfect, but the legs were too big and looked sloppy on me. I sadly had to return both. If there's ever a reboot where the waist is made a bit larger, I'm in.
I'm 5'4" and the length was perfect; I'm 140lb and I usually wear a small in all Oiselle running tights.
- The way they fit- too tight in waist
Amazing Idea, Just Doesn't Quite Work
I was immediately drawn to these for bike commuting and loved the idea of being able to wear Roga all day! I'm 125lbs, athletic build, and usually wear 2-4 in Oiselle. After watching the IG stories I couldn't decide so I ordered a S and XS. The XS fits perfectly in the legs but the waistband is far to tight and uncomfortable. The S is much too big in the waistband with a big gap in the back and there's extra material in the legs and seat the bunches unflatteringly especially when you sit. I so so wanted to love these, and the idea is amazing, but sadly the fit just doesn't work.

You can do a full split in these if you wanted to
Really Good Stuff: These are seriously amazing pants. I'm a huge fan of the roga fabric and have a few iterations of the Roga and Mac Roga shorts, so these were an instant buy for me. I got the crimson colorway, which is great. The length of the XS is also great for me at 5'2"
Not-so-good stuff: My one complaint is that the waistband has zero give. I'm 125lbs (typical runner legs with the big thighs), and typically a 26 waist in jeans and 2-4 in oiselle bottoms, but prefer the fit of 2, so I went for the XS size. Unfortunately, they're just barely uncomfortably snug. Like "I don't want to sit down in these pants" kind of snug. I wish I had waited for the sizing review IG video before I purchased, otherwise I would have sized up. So I definitely recommend sizing up for these!

WORLD'S BEST PANTS
I ordered two pairs of these pants and think I might need to order two more. I cannot express enough how awesome they are. They're incredibly comfortable yet appear classy. And as a bike commuter, the ability to move and sweat in a "professional" pair of pants is so freeing! 14/10 would recommend. All the colors.
- fit, versatility, style, wicking material
- easy to snag - don't do yard work in these pants
