I just got the black one. I know, I am boring...............but I don't know what top I will be wearing race day and I didn't want to clash after spending 80 dollars on a skirt. Now that I think about it...........The only article of clothing I have ever bought that cost more than that was my wedding dress ...........and it was $99 dollars at David's Bridal.

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.

You guys have got me sold on the SparkleTech ... I love, love, love the colors and all the pockets ... BUT I am also fiercely loyal to my CW-X compression capris. I haven't run more than 5 miles without them in years - middle of summer or dead of winter. Could I wear the SparkleTech over the CW-X capris? Maybe 3 layers is just way too much. I see they make the Sparkle Commandos, but the 2 colors are boring and I'd lose the side leg pockets. Anyone try their SparkleTech over capris or leggings?

They are so snug I wouldn't try them on top of something else for fear of stretching them out. As much as I love my sparkle techs, I would stick with what you know.

I've heard of ppl doing that. I haven't. If you are going to Tink, you could try it out there (they have changing rooms at the expos). Or call Leah up and see if she will bring on to your room to try out. She prob would.

I think that much clothing would be overkill and VERY hot. If it is over 50 degrees you will be very uncomfortable with the compression and tech Sparkle skirt. I love the Sparkle skirt tech and have four of them. Will be wearing three next weekend at WDW Marathon weekend races/training run.

I wear my Roadrunner Sports compression capris under my SparkleTech skirts on all my long runs, and that works fine for me. Since I'm used to the compression capris and the SparkleTech, I'm used to the layers. My body gets overheated fairly easily, but the combination hasn't bothered me yet after 3 half marathons and a full. I definitely would give the combination a try on a test run.

Quick question for those of you who wear Sparkle Skirts - the difference between the SparkleLight and the SparkleTech is the shorts on the latter?

Yes. SparkleTech has the attached shorts underneath. I think the Sparkle Light still has the pocket in the waistband just like the S Tech, but if the website doesn't say, just call them. They are really good about answering questions!

No, the sparkle light does not have the same type of pocket as the tech. It has a little one, but it doesn't have a zipper. Not very useful, except maybe for a key.

Thanks for clearing that up! This really surprises me. I don't have a S light, But the picture on the website kind of looks like it has the same pocket as the tech. I wanted to try the sparkle light, but I'd really miss that big zippered pocket!

It could be that Leah changed the design since I bought mine for the princess half last year. I bought it about a year ago. I would ask her.

my Sparkle light arrived yesterday and it's an open pocket only good for a gel or maybe a phone or a key card. I'm trying it out on my 7 miler today. Guess I'll stick my hankie in my waist band - because I have to have a hankie!
