Don't hesitate to purchase!
Like you, I sifted through the reviews. I contemplated. Contemplate no more, they are worth every penny!
They are the most comfortable running pants I've ever owned.
In my pursuit to find something more fitting for winter running, I tried on craft, swix, and northface, all of which were not at all comfortable.
I highly recommend these running pants.
I ran 8 miles this morning in 27 degrees Celsius, and they were perfect.
I'm 5', 105 lbs, the extra small are perfect (of course a tad long on me, but nothing I can't live with).
