Whether you're an avid runner or you just like a brisk walk now and then, there are a few staples that you need in your winter workout wardrobe — and fleece-lined leggings rank high on that list. Thanks to the added warmth, this cold weather essential means you don't have to limit your workouts to indoors when the temperature drops. If you haven't slid into a pair before, don't worry — with winter's clothing arrivals, you can secure yourself a style (or two) that'll have you covered for this season.
One such style to have on your radar is the Polartec Powerstretch Tight from Athleta for $89, available in both charcoal and black. The mid-rise legging's smooth fabric and second skin fit make it an ideal piece for wearing as a base layer (if needed), but will keep you nice and warm all on its own. Made especially for winter training, the Polartec® Power Stretch fabric provides for thermal insulation and the soft brushed lining will keep you feeling cozy on the coldest of days.
Will this legging work for you? You'll truly never know until you try, but take comfort in the fact that this style is sitting on over 1400 reviews with an average rating of 4.6 stars. One reviewer said it's the perfect combination of function and style, while numerous others agree it's both warm and comfortable. Reviewers also called out the great fit, which could be attributed to the wide waistband and adjustable draw string.
It may be cold out, but that won't stop you from sweating while exercising. Styles like the aforementioned legging, as well the UA Base™ 4.0 from Under Armour, are made specifically for that problem to wick sweat away. Ringing in at $84.99, this legging's quick-dry fabric construction wicks moisture to keep you dry and comfortable. Sweat often leads to smell, but this mega-grid thermal fleece legging uses anti-odor technology to prevent the unwanted sweaty stink — so you can head to brunch post run.
