It’s New Years resolution time again, and it’s time to break out the exercise gear to help you follow through on your 2010 goals. Since my goal is to get back into my pre-baby shape, I thought a new exercise outfit would be just the thing to get me working out consistently again and actually help me keep my resolution this year. Instead of doing what I have done in the past and just stop at the local department store to find a pair of yoga pants, I decided to hit the internet and explore to find the perfect work out pant. Every one of my searches led me back to the Hard Tail Forever Rolldown Yoga Pants, and for the first time ever I fell in love with a pair of pants online.
The raves were rampant, including a woman who claimed to own 15 pairs of the Hard Tail Yoga Pants, and the general consensus was that the Hard Tail yoga pants are the yoga pants to try. From viewing online, I had to agree; they did seem like the perfect exercise pant. They were cute, they looked comfy and they were long enough. I desperately needed work out pants that had a long enough inseam for me, so I did something I rarely do and sent the company an email asking if they wanted a review.
They arrived just days later and have been in heavy rotation ever since. From Stroller Strides to yoga play dates and even just for working out at home, the Hard Tail Rolldown Yoga Pants are the first pair I grab when I’m ready to get moving. But, I have a confession: I’m currently sitting here writing this review wearing my Hard Tail Forever Yoga Pants and not a piece of exercise equipment is in site. That’s because in addition to being quite possibly the best yoga pants ever, they have officially become my relaxing at home, super comfortable, wear-anywhere pants, as well as the official late-night review writing pants.
So, what makes the Hard Tail Roll Down / Fold Down Yoga Pant so wonderful? The quality of fabrics used. The pre-shrunk cotton-lycra blend fabric is the perfect cut, thickness, and stretch to make these pants not only supremely comfortable, but also great looking. Whereas other yoga pants I tried were made of a flimsy weight fabric that had far too much movement, especially when worn outdoors, the Hard Tail Pants are a great medium thickness fabric that holds its shape nicely while you move and hugs your curves in all the right places.
As the name would suggest, the Hard Tail Rolldown Yoga Pants have extra fabric at the waist for you to roll down over the seamed top, to add a bit of fashion and flair to your workout. The best thing about the rolldown top is that it means that instead of a hard waistline that cuts into your body and creates seam lines or muffin top, the Hard Tail Rolldown Pants create a soft and smooth transition and makes it supremely more comfortable for really moving. To get the perfect fit, keep in mind that the Hard Tail yoga pants tend to run a bit on the small size, so it’s recommended to go up to the next size if you like your work out clothes a bit looser.
The Hard Tail Rolldown Yoga Pants are fitted through the upper leg so they are comfortable even for long workouts, but then flare a bit below the knee into a super-cute and flattering bootleg cut. This bootleg cut makes it possible to wear your Hard Tail pants for more than working out. In fact, some claim to wear their Hard Tail Pants to the office, or even for going out, since they can be dressed up nicely with the right footwear.
The Hard Tail Pants are a bit pricier than other knockoff brands, but I would definitely recommend paying the few dollars more for a pair of yoga pants you will actually want to wear. Even better, you might be just dying to wear them, which will mean a greater chance of meeting your work out goals!
