The Power Gym leggings have an extensive colour range, incorporating fun prints and graphics. Properties include side pockets and back zip pocket, handy for carrying your outdoor essentials and they dry super fast! The leggings are super stretchy and there is no need to keep pulling them up as they sculpt the body. A little more on the expensive side of leggings but worth every penny.

The Outdoor Softshell leggings have a high-waisted V style waistline which is very flattering and sits comfortably against the skin. The leggings come in a range of dark shades and have a softshell texture that is breathable and snag-free. They are brilliant in the cold and don’t have an inner seam to lessen the chance of chafing.

The North Face Women’s Motivation 2.0 leggings come in 4 colours: TNF Black, Goblin Blue, Slate Rose and Wild Ginger. The names of the colours are entertaining but the leggings are long-lasting and comfortable for the Summer months. If searching for warmer leggings, try the fleece lined ones which are super comfy and are water/snow resistant.

Under Armour’s UA Merdian Full-Length leggings are great for outdoor sports in the warmer months. With a side pocket, they are fantastic for shorter walks where you may only need your map, compass and phone. One of our members walks up to 12km in these with ease and no chafing.

The Highton Pro Leggings come in two shades, Seal Grey and Black. Although not bright in colour, they are practical and very stretchy. The durable thick waistband with drawstring included, helps for a tighter fit on the waist, therefore, no pulling up halfway through your walk is needed.

The Balance V2 Seamless leggings come in various colours and also have a decorative textured finish. Beaybl leggings aren’t see-through according to one of our members and thick enough to be flattering. There’s nothing worse than having see-through leggings – make sure you do the bend test ladies!
