ODODOS High Waist Out Pocket Yoga Pants

[amazon fields=”B07BYKLLZN” value=”thumb”]

There are lots of reasons why yoga pants has become so popular but the biggest is that they offer a lot of comfort no matter what you’re doing.  Couple that with the abundance of styles and colors and it’s obvious why they are at the top of this list.

Furthermore, yoga pants are designed to be breathable so they are perfect in those hot locations when you still want to keep a certain style yet remain cool and comfortable (they were a staple on our trips to China!).

ODODOS Power Flex Pants are all created from a special blend of four-way stretch fabric which is designed to move with your body in any direction. This blend is also perfect to help to remove moisture from your body and to dry quickly so that the material does not become saturated with sweat.

A flatlock stitching is used on all seams that work with the 4 way stretch fabric to create a very comfortable seam that adds style to the pant along with functionality. An outside pocket is stitched into the pants to allow you to carry your phone or a small wallet with your important information to ensure it is kept close to you at all times.

All of the material used is non see-through (remember this debacle?) and comfortable enough to be worn in all types of weather, especially hot and humid. All fabrics are also antimicrobial for that added level of security in mind.

You can choose from many different colors and patterns as well as versions for short and long legs.

What we liked

  • 40 different colors to choose
  • Functional small pocket
  • Choice between a long or short cuff

What we didn’t like

  • Difficulties when fitting plus sizes

The ODODOS yoga pant is a super comfortable and highly versatile pair of pants that not only feel good but also look good. These pants can be used for just about any activity or for just going to the store to get some coffee. There is nothing like style and comfort all wrapped up in a single pair of pants.

Sometimes adventure just calls out to us, and when it does, we need to be sure we are ready to answer that call and look good doing it. prAna’s Halle Pant is a great pair of adventure pants that are also comfortable in hot weather.

The Halle pant is made from prAna’s own Stretch Zion material which is durable, lightweight and perfect for any rugged adventures you may encounter.

These are a loose fitting pant that is designed to fit snug around your hips and then follow your natural curves to create a nice loose fit yet retain the natural look of a woman.

The lower cuff also comes with straps half down the calf so that you can wear these pants like a pair of capris. You just roll up the lower leg of the pant and then button into place using the buttons and straps that are part of the pants.

These pants also have a lovely button up fly and come with a single hidden zippered thigh pocket for those small items you want to keep out of sight.

Larger plus sizes are available such as 2XL and 3XL and the bootleg cut allows for a looser fit in the lower leg so that you don’t feel as constrained as some other pants.
