Gym leggings that are comfy, functional, and have pockets – the trifecta

Gym leggings that will let you respond 'thanks, they have pockets' when complimented on them? Always a bonus.

Gym leggings

We all know the glory of finding a gorgeous new dress that comes with two discrete pockets, one on each side. A feeling we thought was exclusive to our favourite flouncy gúnas, we’ve since found that the same thrill extends to just about any piece of clothing with functional pockets… or at least the ones that don’t usually guarantee they’ll have them anyways. 

An unexpected but always welcome addition, pockets are especially useful in a pair of gym leggings. No one wants to have to bring a bag when nipping out for a quick walk, so having a side compartment to slip your phone, keys, mask, and bank card makes into equals major bonus points in our books.  

Here’s our pick of some of the best options out there at the minute.
