First purchase with dk active and happy I made the choice. I was wanting new active wear that was ethical and local but also fit well and was functional. The alliance bike pants were comfortable as soon as I put them on and I’ve now run in them multiple times for varying distances. They do ride up in the leg a smidge for me but not enough to be an issue while running. Waist band stays put. No chafing. Love the pockets, though I miss having a little pocket in the back which I’ve had with other brands of activewear but this is just personal preference. I also really like how lightweight they are and the texture of these. As a side note, I also bought the Next Level bike pant which have a super smooth/buttery feel but they didn’t feel as firm as the alliance and I have exchanged them for a smaller size. For reference, I’m about 5’4 and usually an 8 and got the small in the alliance and they felt nice and firm without being restrictive or uncomfortable.
