Fits well and no friction on long runs
This is my second pair of illumiNITE running tights, but they're not really tights. I love the fit, although w a 34 inch inseam XL seems nearly perfect, so beware, I think they run a bit small.
My old tights are over a decade old and the style has changed. I love the feel of the fabric and cut. No drawstring in my new pair. I put one in. I think they're necessary.
There's a small pocket in the back for a key, credit card, DL and it may be large enough for a small cliff bar, but not much more. I was stretching on my back and felt the tab poke me. I stretch like this a lot, so I think that tab will break sooner than later.
I think a slightly better design would put a small key pocket within the waistband or attached to it on the inside and have a zippered pocket on the outside of the thigh for a smartphone. One on both sides would be good as well.
