Built for running but versatile enough to handle a wide range of sports and workouts in all conditions, the UA OutRun The Storm Pants are sweatpants with a killer USP – supreme wind and water resistance.

Under Armour OutRun The Storm Pants features

They’re made from a four-way-stretch woven fabric that’s light and flexible and even though they’re close-fitted and tapered, they flex and move with enough freedom to handle everything from sprint intervals to sets of high knees.

They’re built for cold-weather workouts and that’s definitely where they perform best. And though there is breathability here, in milder conditions they can run a bit hot.

For storage, there’s a central rear expandable pocket – Under Armour’s Speed Pocket. The hooded holder is great for stashing a larger smartphone or a headphones case securely without any irritating bounce. It’s water resistant, too, so your precious tech has extra protection.

The soft-knit internal drawstring waistband sits comfortably without any digging in while the tapered legs have ankle zippers that make these ideal for slipping on and off fast, without removing your shoes, either side of a workout. There’s some really nice details here too, with big zippers that clip and stow upwards, making them easy to grab when you’re tight after that long Sunday run.

The UA OutRun The Storm Pants come in three colour options – black, light and dark grey – with a small reflective detailing for added visibility on night runs. And there are six sizes from S to 3XL.
