Patagonia has temporarily closed its distribution centers as a safety precaution in response to the coronavirus. Customers will be unable to place orders on Patagonia’s website, but in the interim, you can shop Patagonia clothing, bags, and supplies at REI.
We tried leggings from Patagonia that are made from recycled polyester and have built-in odor control. Below, you’ll find three women’s reviews.
Our experiences with the Centered Tights ($55) and Centered Crops ($49) prove the outdoor company can compete with fitness brands that specialize in workout apparel.
They’re stretchy, compressive, and sweat-wicking — perfect for a range of physical activities, including yoga, running, and hiking.
Patagonia might be best known for its sweaters, vests, and outdoor gear, but a recent test of some of its leggings now has us repping the socially and environmentally responsibly brand at the gym, too.
After flying under the radar (ours at least), its Centered Tights ($55) and Centered Crops ($49) join our favorite leggings, alongside pairs from fitness-focused brands like Alo Yoga and Under Armour, for their comfort, versatility, and thoughtful construction.
These compressive, high-performance leggings are made from spandex and recycled polyester and further enhanced with the addition of miDori bioSoft and Polygiene. The former wicks away moisture quickly and gives the leggings a comfortable, soft feel, while the latter provides odor control by stopping the growth of odor-causing bacteria on the surface of the fabric. In short, you can move flexibly, feel good, and smell fresh in these leggings. Other notable features include the small hidden key pocket and the selection of both solid and printed styles.
They’re also Fair Trade Certified sewn as part of Patagonia’s larger mission of paying workers equitably and promoting worker health and safety. The company says it holds the distinction of having more Fair Trade Certified styles than any other apparel brand.
Though the product description for these leggings taps them for yoga, we think they’re just as good for high-intensity activities in both indoor and outdoor settings. Wear them to the gym or on a hike, and your legs will thank you.
