Running Capri?

I'd like to pick up another pair of running capris. I have a pair of Nike Dri-Fit Capris circa 2008 that I like, but I'm not sure which model they are of the two they offer now (Tech and Filament). I think they've tweaked their design a bit since then so, while I haven't ruled them out, I'm looking for other suggestions. I like a bit of compression and I'd prefer that they were light weight for cool to not-quite-warm weather running. Thanks for any suggestions!

I have a couple of pair of Brooks ones that I like. I also run in the Descente tri capri. Yeah, it does have a chamois, but it's pretty minimal.

I run in Underarmor heat gear compression capris and I love them.

Jeez, Indy, I just sat down to ask this same question. I just finished a run; it's 52 and cloudy, with 20 mph sustained winds. Not shorts weather for me, so I wore my tights. They are just a little too toasty. My only capris are loose for yoga, or have a chamois.

I will look at the Brooks.

On Running Wearhouse's website, I found a couple of brands--Asics and the Under Armour already mentioned in particular--that are specifically rated to be appropriate in 65+ degrees. I like that as an option because I prefer capris over shorts.

You know what they say about great minds, Crankin'!

I ordered the Sugoi capris here on TE. I know that Sugoi fits me well.

I wear running skirts when it's warm.

Out of curiosity, why do you prefer running skirts to shorts? I've never worn the former.
