If you’re looking for a pair of sweatpants that can handle more dynamic workouts – think runs, football warm-ups or gym circuits – these Gymshark Sport Joggers fit the profile.
Gymshark Sport Joggers features
They’re made from a thin and light 92% polyester, 8% elastane fabric mix that’s superbly stretchy for maximum flexibility and freedom of movement. They have a lovely soft lining that boosts comfort and feels soft but supportive too.
I found them to be great for a wide range of drills, from jogging warm-ups to deep lunges and dynamic stretches. They’re also not too heavy for more intense sessions. I even managed some light recovery treadmill runs and am sure these will work a treat on cold winter runs, too.
Style-wise, the finish is shinier and sportier than most. These have a much more ‘just worked out’ than ‘off to a fancy brunch’ look.
The tighter fit isn’t quite second-skin close but the tapered slim fit hugs more than the On Sweatpants and the Lululemon License To Train sweats we also tested. So you’ll need to prefer a more dialled-in fit. The flipside is, there’s nothing loose or baggy to get in your way.
Up top, the wide, heavy-duty drawstring waistband stays put nicely to protect your dignity. Also the ankle cuff elastic here is much less aggressive. I didn’t have any trouble from legs rising up, even on the biggest stretch drills. Unfortunately, they’re still too narrow to slip on and off over your shoes, though.
Storage is limited to two classic front zippered pockets. They’re both big enough to holster larger smartphones but the mesh material is a little loose and there’s a bit of bounce when you’re getting stuck into more vigorous moves.
There are three colour options – black, maroon and grey – and seven sizes to choose from, from XS to 3XL.
