Ws Maipo 78 Tights

Kinda Large
March 28, 2023

Best Leggings in the World

These leggings rule my world. I haven't taken them off since they arrived. The fit is really good, fits like a glove. Love the calf room. The feel and material is great as well, they are amazing.

March 25, 2023

So stretchy

I have been wearing other branded leggings for awhile when I tried these. They fit like a second skin and are super durable.

March 21, 2023

Light weight, quality fabric and great fit

I was on the fence with the size I chose because XS is not the category I'm used to fitting into. However, I followed patagonia's body measurements and reviews that said the leggings run true to size. I'm 5'7", 125lbs with a 26.5" waist, so the body measurements indicated I'm in the XS range and they were correct!... Read More When unpacking them they look impossibly small, but the stretch is amazing and they fit snug without feeling like you're squeezed into something you shouldn't be. The fabric is lightweight without being too thin, so I can comfortably bend over without seeing through to my underwear yet they don't feel claustrophobic in a hot yoga class. I just wish there were more patterned colors available because I avoid solids as they tend to show sweat marks no matter how fast sweat gets wicked away.

March 20, 2023

Soft as butter

this fabric is softer than my Lululemon leggings. I have not washed it to see how the fabric will hold, however I am hoping that it will. Love that the color matches my retro jacket pocket.

March 16, 2023

Order a size thats on the smaller size

I returned these tights because they were kinda large. I bought the smaller size and they were a better fit. I had previously bought a vest but the sizing was too small. In this case I had to size up.

March 10, 2023

soft and comfortable

These leggings fit really well and are soft and stretchy. I like wearing them for mat work (yoga and Pilates).

March 9, 2023

Great all around tight

Perfect for and fabric weight- comfy

March 6, 2023

Love them

I LOVE these leggings, I never want to wear anything else. They are soft and comfy and fit well. Not see through at all.

March 1, 2023

Great fabric, no fuss design

When I pulled these size Medium tights out of the package they looked like so tiny! But the Maipo fabric is amazing, super stretchy and soft. The pattern looks great on and the design is sleek and simple. I haven't road tested these long enough to know how they hold up, but I'm looking forward to getting out with them. A note on size, I f... Read Moreind that Patagonia runs smaller than other brands (eg Prana).

February 28, 2023


The most comfortable leggings Ive ever owned! Ive tried about every legging out there. These are by far my favorite. Buttery soft, lovely color and comfortable fit.

February 28, 2023

Super soft

TLDR: very comfortable and skin like, order true to size. I live in Align leggings and am usually disappointed when I branch out to other brands for leggings. I got the Maipo on a whim, didnt have high hopes because the Peak Mission pants were very not stretchy with a waistband, and size XS was too tight for me. Lo and behold, the Maipo size S is a... Read Morectually slightly loose on me, there is no waistband in the front (so it won't leave a mark), so you can go true to size with the Patagonia size chart. I am usually a size 4 in Lululemon, 26" waist 37" hip. 1 potential improvement: the seams in the back can be more flattering, so if there is a designer looking at these please raise the seams a little bit! I am looking forward to a size pocket version of these.

February 25, 2023

It is the softest and

It is the softest and most flexible product ever !!

February 23, 2023

Very cool...

My mistake for buying these without trying on first. When trying on, I realized they'd be best for doing hot yoga or some type of warm weather activity, as the material is cooling. The fit was great and they felt supportive, but sadly the cooling effect of the material isn't going to work for me,

February 13, 2023

So soft!

So soft and stretchy. I wore these to work and for a walk and they didn't sag or chafe. The light blue is beautiful, I recommend !

February 11, 2023

Soft and stretchy

These pants fit great and are so soft with the right amount of stretch.

February 10, 2023

Trail runner girl

I purchased these based on a review that said bye bye Lulumon and I so agree!! Buttery soft and the green is a beautiful color. Thank you Patagonia as never liked giving my money to Lulu ;)

February 10, 2023

So Comfortable and stylish

I have been on the search for a perfect legging for a few years and these check all if the boxes. They are lightweight (lacking a lot of compression which I don't care for(, stylish and so comfortable. Just ordered a 2nd pair. Love everything about this company.

February 10, 2023

More if a base layer

I am close to 65 & these are just a pinch too thin for me yo feel comfortable wearing them for yoga; probably someone younger could get away with it. In fairness, I should have paid more attention to reviews which pointed out thin quality. I kept them, though & have used as a base layer. Comfortable.

Hey Sheryl, thanks for the feedback. We're glad to hear that you found use for these tights regardless of them being sheer. If you're looking for an alternative, we recommend checking out the [Women's Pack Out Tights](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-pack-out-tights/21995.html?dwvar_21995_color=LMBE&cgid=root).

February 9, 2023

Perfect yoga pant

I am 5 foot 71/2 inches, weigh 153 lbs and purchased a large. Fit is true to size. I wear these for yoga and they are extremely comfortable. Loved them so much I bought another pair in a different color.

February 9, 2023

Super comfortable

Very comfortable, fits true to size, love it for walking the dog, yoga, around the house. Wish it had a side pocket for phone. Thinner material than I thought it would be so makes it great for spring/summer.

February 9, 2023

Super soft, amazing fit

My absolute favorite tights! They are buttery soft and not too tight. You know those tights that feel like they are squeezing you in the calves and thighs, not these. I could wear these every day all day with the super comfortable waist band and fabric. The waist band stays in place during workouts and high levels of activity. I liked the first pai...

Super comfy

Love these tights.. very soft & comfortable.. excellent fit.

Great patterned and non-black tights

I've been looking for patterned tights and those not in black, and these sale tights met my criteria. I use them for playing pickleball. They fit well and are very comfortable.

February 7, 2023

Good fit, soft fabric

Got it on sale in Current Blue, great quality tights and so comfy. I think I could've gotten them in XS, but I'm happy with the size S. I have been wearing them often and they hold well after washing. If on sale I might get another pair.

January 26, 2023

Very comfortable

These are extremely comfortable. I wish I hard ordered a M and that they had pockets.

January 19, 2023

Lightweight, great fit

Originally bought these for hot yoga and theyre the perfect weight for it. Not super tight, but enough compression to feel put together. Shortly after I got these, I found out I was pregnant. Im now 27 weeks and these are the only pair of leggings I can still wear (including my Lululemon Align leggings that are suggested for pregnancy - I had to st...

January 18, 2023

When I put these tights

When I put these tights on, I felt amazing. I literally commented out loud. The fit was like a glove. I am older and not quite lithe anymore, so tights just have to be right for me. I love these. Plus, they are unique in design.

January 17, 2023

So soft and very flattering.

Despite the light color, these yoga pants don't show my cellulite! I think it's because of the print. :-) The only drawback so far is that they come down a bit while I practice, and I have to pull them back up. I believe it's because I'm between sizes. I guess if you are undecided, size down. They are very stretchy, so I might ... Read Morebe able to wear a medium.

January 9, 2023

I use it for active

I use it for active sports, including Pickleball. The fabric is comfortable and light and the pale blue color and pattern has gotten many compliments. Though 5'3" and thin at 109 lbs, with mild middle/senior age "spread" in the hips/abdomen, I was happy that I ordered the medium and not the small.

January 9, 2023

Perfect fit and comfort

Yes I am a boomer, looking for a yoga pant that wont make me feel like the Michelin Man or the Pillsbury dough boy- at 5 foot 3 and 135 lbs I went for a large- perfect fit and butter soft, light weight and not too heavy in texture- perfect for 65 - 75 degree weather

December 30, 2022

Fit and Look Great

Bought these for my wife and daughter for Christmas and they both loved them. Was a great price and they fit them both perfectly.

December 30, 2022

Wanted to love them!

I recently bought the maipo tights because I really wanted an extra pair of sturdy leggings that I can wear to work and around the house. The leggings do feel like butter on your skin and are the perfect length for me because I am short. However, these are so thin! There is no way I could wear them in a Minnesota fall or winter. I do not really lik... Read Moree wearing leggings in the summer months so these really are not the practical tights I was hoping for to expand my centered tights collection. I also question how well they will hold up through time given how thin they are. Ive had my centered tights for 4 years and they still function and look great! Please make a thicker option of these buttery soft tights! For size reference, I am 5ft 2inches, typically wear a size 8 and the small fit great.

We really appreciate your detailed and thoughtful feedback, Megan! We welcome you to return them under our Ironclad Guarantee and recommend you reach out to us if you'd like any assistance with that. Note that our [Pack Out Tights](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-pack-out-tights/21995.html) most closely resemble the weight and material of the Centered Tights fabric so you might love those!

December 26, 2022

Great leggings

They are true to size. I love the feel of them. They remind me if tights we no longer carry. Will buy again.

December 19, 2022

Good fit comfortable

I find them very comfortable and use them for exercise, not sure about hiking as the material may be too thin in winter months

December 14, 2022

Perfect as expected

Perfect for winter layers in Nothern Europe under coats wokrs better than any sweater. Fit really nicely too!

Great fabric & fit

Very happy with my new purchase! Also fits me great. Wasn’t sure because I chose the xs instead of the s size. Good choice 🙏 Thanks, Patagonia for your great products and business practices ❤️

Great, but

These tights are so soft and nicely made. I wish there was a small drawstring included in the waistband for extra security-sometimes for yoga use the waistband could be a little more secure. Otherwise, no complaints!

I read all kinds of reviews before purchasing something. Some people said, better than lulu, so I was a bit skeptical that they'd be a knockoff not-as-good version of the align. NOT SO.

Hi Annika, we're very sorry about the troubles with fit. We do have some tights available in the same length and they have a drawstring to help keep them secure. Go ahead and check out the [Women's Endless Run 7/8 Tights](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-endless-run-7-8-tights/24811.html?dwvar_24811_color=CNBR&cgid=root).

The fit is good and I love the length. The fabric is soft, flexible, and tends to stay in place. I have been wearing them in 50-70 degree weather and they are comfortable.

Butter soft, second skin

I love these tights! have 5 of these tights, in different colors. I love these for yoga, hiking, dog walking, and WFH. More colors, please! *note that the green version are a little see-through (I also wish they were a darker green).

Excited to like them!

I was sad when the Centered Tights disappeared from Patagonia shelves and was hesitant to buy these, BUT they are fantastic! I was so excited to like them! Sad to see the Centered ones go, but glad they were replaced with these!

Soft and super comfortable

Love these leggings. Great fit, really comfortable and allows for great range of movement.

October 17, 2022

Comfortable, like second skin!

I love these leggings, I cannot believe how comfortable they are! They hold me in but aren't overly restrictive, it feels like they're second skin. I like the material as it won't pill. Will be purchasing in other colors.

So soft!

These leggings are so soft and comfortable. They stay in place during exercise and are flattering around the waist. I only wish they had side pockets!

Shows your sweat

Great fit, feel and I do love the color green, but it shows your sweat in your groin and butt. Otherwise really nice.

October 5, 2022

Super comfy!

These are fantastic leggings, so smooth and soft. They are a thinner material which has been perfect for summer. I love the high waist and the print is beautiful too! And I am really digging the 7/8 length. The only thing that would make these leggings better would be side pockets, but the pocket in the back is a nice touch!

October 4, 2022


These are the best leggings ever!! Lightweight, they stay in place perfectly, there are no weird stitching, so comfortable. Love it for surfing or just hanging around. I can't take them off, simply amazing! Only change I would make is I wish they were also available in full length and not only 7/8.

I don't mind spending extra money on high quality leggings since I wear them practically everyday, and this pair was definitely worth the investment.

These leggings feel like you have nothing on. They are so soft and comfortable but still supportive. The only downside would be the waist rolls a tiny bit.

I'm obsessed!!

I'm really picky with it comes to leggings and these have surpassed my expectations (I'm now looking to buy my 4th pair).

Best ever leggings Ive owned. The fabric is amazingly buttery, and yes thin. Perfect for super sweaty workouts, but it also looks amazing for casual wear. Whatever colors and prints Patagonia decides to make, I will get one.

Well done Patagonia!

The perfect tight. I wear them for everything. I love that there is no branding on the outside of the tight. They are very flattering on and incredibly comfortable.

Absolute Favorite

These are hands-down my favorite leggings I've ever worn. They feel impossibly soft and light, while still durable and opaque. The cut is so flattering and everything stays right where it should, even twisting about during yoga. I would give 10 stars if I could!

Most comfortable tights I've ever owned

I live in these! Love them through and through.

best light weight legging for everything

The weight on these is perfect for heavy workouts. The waist band in the front is my favorite part. It does not dig into your belly while active or sitting.

The Goldilocks of Leggings

Soft, durable, and the color hasn't faded! I dont have any issue with them being transparent, and they are very breathable.

Holy Grail Tight

As a yoga instructor, personal trainer, and athlete, I've been wearing all sorts of leggings brands for years. These are hands down the best! I've been explaining to anyone who will listen that they're a better version of a different brands Align legging- thinner but feel way higher quality and more durable. The pocket on the back of... Read More the waist fits my iPhone XR, and the seams are indétectable against my skin. I'm 5'4" (26" inseam), approx 31" waist and 40" hip and even though I'm carrying 25 pounds more than usual due to the panny, I ended up getting a size small. They hit at my ankle which is perfect. They aren't see through at all, and feel like I'm literally not wearing any pants because the fabric is so cooling and lightweight. As soon as my first pair arrived and I put them on, I instantly ordered 2 more. I use them for yoga, running, hiking, and wear them casually. Patagonia, you knocked this one out of the park! I would love if they came in other dark neutrals (I bought all black pairs), like a deep green or red.

Great spandex for running or base layer

I bought these when an airline lost my luggage and I desperately needed to go for a run. My only complaint is that there is only one pocket, though thats really not the end of the world.

It's like a second skin! These are a thinner legging, which makes them perfect for the hot, humid climate I am in and any sweaty activities I get int... Read Moreo. As an avid yoga practitioner, I have yet to feel any restriction when wearing these bottoms. I am between a S and M in Patagonia bottoms - S ended up fitting best. And they pass the squat test! It is also a huge plus to know these are made from recycled material, and that when they have reached the end of the line with me, I can send them back to Patagonia to be recycled yet again :)

super impressed!

Patagonia is upping the game with their leggings, very similar cut to Align leggings but made with Bureo netplus, so I'm not sure how it gets any better. Soft but sturdy and super flattering!

These tights are amazing so comfortable and move so well. Theyre great for all the activities I love best! So versatile from yoga to climbing to weight training these tights do it all!

Not my favorite

I have a bunch of Patagonia leggings. My favorites are the centered ones which I have in both full length and crop. I always find a small works for me in their leggings, but I dont like them super tight. I loved the colors of these Maipo leggings and ordered both the green and blue. They are much thinner than other Patagonia leggings that I own and... Read More the fit was bigger. The smalls literally left a bagginess in the crotch area that was unflattering. I exchanged and sized down to an Xs, which fit better. They are however so thin that it looks like there are dark marks (almost like a stain) where the fabric had creased with folding. Im unsure about the quality for this price honestly. I kept the green because the marks were less noticeable and I just really like the color. Not sure how well they will hold up with time.

Response from Patagonia
March 3, 2022

Hey Jessica, we appreciate the feedback on our Maipo 7/8 Tights. These tights are different from your favorite Centered Tights in that these are made from NetPlus postconsumer recycled nylon made from recycled fishing nets plus spandex. Our centered tights are made from recycled polyester and spandex, so they will have a slightly different feel. With that said, they should still last you while. If for whatever reason, they do end up failing in a short amount of time, that would be good reason to send them in for warranty evaluation. We're hoping that's not the case, but if it is that's always an option! Otherwise, we do still carry the [Women's Centered Tights ](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-centered-tights/21961.html?dwvar_21961_color=CCNO) if you'd like to return and repurchase.

5 stars!

The best tights Patagonia has made! Thin fabric but fits great and very soft.

February 7, 2022

I love these leggings!

These leggings are thinner than the pack out tight, and a very smooth, soft material. They will be great for summer hiking. I am 5 1 and these are perfect ankle length. I do not like extremely tight fitting leggings, usually a small is too tight. These were not- Very true to size! My only wish is that they had side pockets.
