I am not in the habit of writing a review unless it’s something I so love that I think is worth sharing.
However, I have been asked to review a pair of workout pants that was kindly gifted to me to try out from ‘Born Tough’ (www.borntough.com) for this very reason, so here it is...
I’m pretty fussy when it comes to yoga pants. I like them to fit well and last well, I don’t like them to get baggy, and I don’t like zips and ties or heavy seams etc. as they have to move with me through a whole range of standing, seated, supine, prone and inverted poses.
Born Tough currently have one style, so I only had to choose a color. They looked pretty good quality; heavy enough not to bag, and thin enough to move in.
I tried them on, and first thing was, they were really difficult to get over my feet as they are cut very narrow (and I don’t have big feet!).
They are pretty smart looking and I thought they would carry well from teaching classes to going out. But, just one day and four classes later...
Some of the seams on the legs are coming apart. The logo on the front of the pants came off, and the seams around the ties are open.
I think for walking, running, or gentle stretches, they would be fine, and cost wise, they are only $25, but for an active yoga practice.. I haven’t worn them since.
So there you have it.
