The feeling of pulling on new gym kit is hard to beat. From running tops and sports bras to gym leggings with pockets, sometimes just one piece of gear can make the difference between skipping that workout and pushing you to smash your fitness goals.
You really can’t underestimate the impact of looking and feeling the part – and that’s why sweat-wicking, quick-drying, breathable gym leggings with pockets are the most worn item in our lycra drawer.
We know. We love those stretchy, seamless, pocket-less yoga leggings, too. But when it comes to running or heading to the gym, leggings with pockets are Team GLAMOUR’s absolute must-have, can’t-live-without item.
Whether it’s discreet zipped waistband pockets for fitting keys, bank cards or our running headphones, or super-slim side drop-in style pouches on the thigh for safely storing your phone, all our picks will ensure you never have to worry about all your valuables falling out next time you’re in a downward dog, and leave you hands-free for your next jog.
So, take the time here to plod through our exhaustive kit list – where we’ve rounded up our favourite styles from Nike, ASOS, Lululemon, Sweaty Betty and more. Trust us – once you’ve worn one pair of leggings featuring plenty of pockets, you’ll never look back.
If you’re looking for a pair specifically for running, that will both store your valuables as well as keep you feeling supported, then try the Epic Luxe Leggings from Nike (£79.95). If yoga is more your think, then try our all-time favourite yoga leggings from Lululemon – the Align. They’ve now launched Align HR Pant 25″ Pockets – offering the same weightless and buttery-soft feeling, but with added pockets for all your essentials.
