  • Constructed with UA ColdGear fabric
  • Moisture-wicking technology
  • Heat-deflecting properties
  • Odor resistance
  • Two side zippered pockets
  • Smooth waistband
  • Good for yoga, running, or everyday
  • Extremely comfortable
  • Great for layering
  • They allow for ample movement


  • Elastic is a bit too tight around the waist initially
  • The zippers seem to be on the flimsy side

The unique combination of insulated fabric with a dual-layer design keeps you warm with cold weather while letting you breathe in mild weather.

The brushed interior absorbs moisture really well and doesn't tend to stick to your skin while the outside of the fabric dries quickly after a workout.

There are a few things I do not like about these. The main one is that they are extremely tight to get into and don't stretch much at all. The second is that they are also kind of expensive for just your average pants. Some women do not care for tight pants (see my post, Predictable results).

Despite these complaints, I think they rock. They are comfortable and do the job well. If you've ever owned a pair of Under Armour long underwear, then you know what I'm talking about. The cold gear is just as good.
