Best gym/yoga/errands pants I've ever bought
on June 5, 2012
I've bought about 7 pairs of these over the course of the past couple of years and intend to buy more. These pants alone are what turned me on to Under Armour as a company.
Initially I bought them because I had to start yoga as part of an injury rehab program. They worked perfectly and were so comfortable they've become my standard work out pants (lifting, stretching, jogging). They're also my go to pants for running errands and lounging around the house.
Very comfortable, very flexible and a great fit. I'm 5'11 148lbs. 30" waist and I wear a small. You can get away with a larger waist in these pants, but if you're any taller than me you'll need to go up a size.
If you're curious about the cut, they're loose but not baggy. It's generally a straight cut, however they feel a little closer in the hips/butt area and a little looser the lower you get.
Although i have done it, they're not designed for outdoor winter wear. You'd have to pair them with thermals or something to pull that off comfortably. Fall/Spring/Summer is good.
*CONS*: Two minor cons. You have to wash them in cold water and you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT put them in the dryer. They will shrink at any temperature level. Why do you think I had to buy 7? I'm a slow learner. On the plus side though, the mesh-like material line dries really fast.
The other con is that they are not offered in very many colors. Like I said, minor.
