If you're working out more these days, you probably need to stock up on some new activewear. One essential is a pair of leggings, of course. And while there are so many options on the market, I suggest getting a pair of cold-weather ones for your winter workouts. Leggings that are made to withstand the cold will be lifesavers for any outdoor runs or even if you're struggling to get yourself to the gym or a studio class and dealing with the early morning chill.
These cold-weather leggings and tights are normally made with fabrics like fleece and are designed to keep you warm without overheating. The best ones allow for enough circulation and are sweat-wicking. And a lot of them also have reflective details, which come in handy since daylight is a little bit lacking in the winter months.
Take a look at some options below. Here's to staying warm and cozy during your workouts!
These leggings from Outdoor Voices are made with FrostKnit, the brand's warmest fabric that's also sweat-wicking. The super-soft pair features reflective details and an internal drawstring to customize your fit.
With fleece lining, these high-waisted leggings will keep you warm and cozy. They're designed for all sorts of activities, like yoga, running, hiking, cycling, skiing, and ice skating. And an added bonus: They come with two smartphone pockets and a small hidden waistband pocket.
3. Athleta Altitude Tight in Polartec Power Stretch
I love Alo's leggings because they're so sleek and give such a nice, sculpted fit. You get that same type of fit plus extra warmth with this pair. The interior has a plush, fleece-like interior to keep you cozy.
The North Face's tights feature the brand's FlashDry fabric, which is moisture-wicking and keeps you cool. There's a reflective logo on the knee as well. You can wear these alone or as a base layer for your other winter sports gear.
These tights feature a fabric that is both insulating and moisture-wicking. They feature sustainably produced components. And you'll be happy to know that there are side drop-in pockets and a back waist envelope pocket to stash your essentials.
With four-way stretch, mild compression, and fleece lining, these leggings will keep you supported and warm during your workouts. There's also an internal drawstring at the waistband so you can customize it to your exact preference.
13. Lululemon Base Pace High-Rise Fleece Running Tight
Not only do these tights have a brushed interior for warmth, but they're also water-resistant, so technically, you can wear these when it's dewy or rainy out. They're designed for running and don't feature an inseam for a smoother stride.
These lightweight fleece leggings won't feel super heavy during your workout, so you can go about your workout business as usual. They feature high compression, so you know what that means—a super-supportive piece of activewear.
