Born Tough is a California based company that produces high quality active wear for a variety of fitness activities. They were gracious enough to send me a pair of their Contoured Jogger Leggings to try. And I love them!
Even though these are joggers, I wore them for three different types of workouts. I need my workout gear to be versatile. I don’t reserve certain gear for certain workouts. These leggings worked great for all three workouts.
First, I did a boxing workout. The leggings are form fitting but not too tight. I could move easily and the contoured seams allowed the leggings to stretch and move in all different directions. This workout makes me sweat more than any other but the leggings were absorbent without becoming heavy and they didn’t stick to me when I was taking them off!
The next workout was a run on the treadmill. It was raining the day I did this workout so I stayed inside but these leggings are thick enough to be the perfect layer on a chilly spring or fall morning. They have a wide elastic waistband with a thick drawstring so they stay put. Seriously! They didn’t fall down or bunch up at all! And the metal tips on the end of the drawstring are a quality touch to keep it from fraying. They also have a nice right side pocket that holds my phone. I didn’t run with my phone on the treadmill but I tested the pocket to make sure my phone fit easily and didn’t bounce around.
The last workout I did was a strength training workout. Again, the leggings easily moved in all directions. I never felt like seams were going to split or that I didn’t have full range of motion. Even though I workout at home with no one else around, these leggings are thick enough so they won’t “show” anything if you’re squatting or stretching.
I washed the leggings after each workout and they held up great. I have an Activewear setting on my washing machine and I don’t dry my workout gear in the dryer. I hung them to dry and just fluffed in the dryer afterward. They dried quickly and didn’t lose their shape.
These joggers are a comfortable and functional addition to my rotation of workout gear. Check out the whole collection of jogger legging here.
