So what are Powerstretch Pants?
These are midweight fleece pants with flat-lock seams and an ergonomic design. They provide plenty of warmth and a great fit whether you wear them under running shorts, waterproofs or if you are brave enough on their own!!
The trousers are made from Polartec Power Stretch which is a material made from 88% Polyester 12% Elastane. This versatile material features a body-hugging 4-way stretch and is very breathable. They keep you dry when you sweat and provide warmth without weight.
The waist is elastic and has an added drawcord to make sure they are confortable and secure.
The trosuers what is described as a credit card sized pocket for small items.
Flat Lock Construction
No uncomfortable seams to stick into you.
The trousers come in sizes from Extra Small to Extra Large in both mens and womens.
If you don't like black these are not for you as they only come in one colour - Black.
£55 but shop around.
I've never been one for leggings, I don't have the figure to wear them!! So why I hear you cry are you reviewing them? Well I did buy a pair, 2 actually but I certainly don't walk around in them unless they are under another garment, usually my paddling trousers.
The polartec material is nice and warm and does keep you warm and dry. Any moisture does get wicked away quickly and if you do get the trousers really wet they dry quite quickly to.
The elastic complemnted with the drawstring keep these trousers in place and is comfortable.
You would just fit a credit card intot he pocket but it certainly would not be comfortable. I don't really see the purpose for the pocket as you can't put anything worthwhie into it without it sticking into you as its on the waist band.
Flat Lock Construction
With flat seams you don't get any uncomfortable stiching stuck into you.
I've got the extra large size and they fit well with just a little baggyness and of course they are in black.
Certainly not the most flattering piece of clothing in my outdoor collection but they do get worn a lot under my waterproofs. They keep me warm and cosy especially in the winter and are my under garment of choice for sea kayaking. I have also worn them out mountain biking with my baggy cycling shorts over the top when its cold and wet and they work a treat.
Warm legs mean warm toes so power stretch here we go.
