    These are the shortest capris I have ever worn. They fit me great, I like the way they look, but they come to just below my kneecaps. I am afraid that if I was taller than 5'4", they couldn't surpass my kneecaps. But they work if you are under 5'4".

    That being said, I love the thick waste band and zippered pocket on the lower back. The material is thicker, but not at all stiff.

    Purchased a pair of these a few weeks ago. Wore them once and haven't put them on since. The waist band has no hold and immediately slid down once I started running. I had to pull the string so tight to make them stay in place that it didn't feel comfortable or look good. I will be contacting customer support to see if I can get my money back. This is the only Brooks product I ever purchased that I'm not happy with.

      Comments about Essential Capri:

      They are a thicker material so they feel snug, but that also means it feels like it's keeping everything sucked in and looking good. It's nice because it keeps you from getting too warm or too cold because it's thick and warm, but the length keeps you cool. I wasn't sure about how I felt about the slight flare that happens at the knees, but in the end I feel like it actually makes it more comfortable and gives more movement around the knees.

        I really love these capris. I've been wearing for almost all my runs for the past 6 months except in the middle of the summer at the hottest. I haven't had any of the issues with splitting seams that other reviewers mentioned. They've also been comfortable for hot yoga classes and don't slip or slide.

          Comments about Essential Capri:

          I'm training for a marathon and have been looking for a new pair of capris. I'm a fan of Brooks and have had many pairs of shoes. I was happy to purchase my capris and loved them, up until the seam ripped in my inner thigh at mile 5 of my 16 mile run. I've only had these for a month and was very bummed they did not work out. I'm just glad this didn't happen during any of my races. I'll still buy shoes, but the apparel won't end up in my closet.

            I've been looking to replace a pair of capris and had a hard finding any I liked until I found these. The fabric is lightweight but substantial and gives a very flattering fit. I'm 5'4" - 105 lbs. and the S is a perfect fit. The low waistband is very comfortable and the bottom of the leg hits just below my knee. I've had mine for 6 months and they still look great; just ordered 2 more pairs!

              I am 5'4", 135 pounds. I bought a small and the fit is great. I love the length, they hit me just below the knee, but the leg is wide enough on me that they don't roll. The fabric is thick enough to feel like they "hold me in" but thin enough to move and be comfortable. I love the wide waist band and the tie is sturdy and doesn't roll. And they machine wash beautifully. I am buying more for running, walking my dogs on the beach, hiking...yoga...shopping... :) I'm a big fan and think these capri's are a great product if the fit is right for you--I recommend you give them a try!!

                A lot of reviews are saying that they are too short but I didn't feel that way. I am 5'6 and they come over my knee. I like the length and they are perfect for the in between temperatures where it is not really cold or hot. As withal Brooks gear I love the pockets for my keys. I will buy more colors when they are on sale.

                    Comments about Essential Capri:

                    I really wanted to like these, but the leg ended at just the wrong point for me. I'm 5'4" and wear a large. The leg opening was about a half inch below my knee, and just walking around caused the capris to ride up and bunch up behind my knees. If they were a half inch longer or shorter, they probaby would have worked better (or if I was an inch shorter or longer...) :)

                    Sadly, I'm sending these back. I really liked the Infinity II capris, and I'll likely order another pair of those instead.

                      Comments about Essential Capri:

                      The first thing I noticed was that the length on these are shorter than normal. That would make them fantastic for cooler summer runs, I think. They fit well and were stylish.

                      One slight problem I had was the waistband rolled a bit. I'm not sure if I got the wrong size or if I didn't tie them tight enough - I've worn them once and I'll definitely play with it to see if I can get it right. Even with the rolling waistband, they were surprisingly comfy.
