I'm 5'6ish, 135 lbs. 50/50 on legs and torso, aka average athletic human. They come up higher than the Recon leggings on the waist, so they're over my belly button by quite a bit, but they're perfectly snug. Not too tight, not too loose. They're ready to run. The leg length is also pretty great. It's nice to have a pair of tights that fit your legs at the perfect length. Also, pockets. Pockets are the best.
If you're a picky picky bike babe who is looking for the absolute perfect tight... these are it. Byeee!
