The 12 best yoga pants for men 2021
Nike Men’s Pro Therma Compression Tight
Chill in the air? These compression tights are made with a warm polyester fabric that’s also moisture-wicking, so you can get a sweat on without soaking the material. Wear them to a class at a drafty yoga studio, on a cold day, or for a winter run.
Kuhl Freeflex Pant
In wear-anywhere fashion, the Freeflex pant is water-resistant, which means it can handle a light rain or puddles on a hiking trail while also being exceptionally stretchy. The gusseted crotch ensures freedom of movement while practicing yoga or rock climbing.
Alo Yoga Men’s Sweatpant
The ribbed waistband keeps these sweatpants snug around your hips while the textured fabric feels comfortable on your skin. They’re excellent for building heat in a vinyasa class or lounging around the house, since the cotton in the fabric blend adds a bit of weight and thermal insulation.
PrAna Vaha Pant
When you think of the best yoga pants for men, these should immediately come to mind. Flowy and made from a blend of hemp and polyester, they’re incredibly stretchy and roomy without feeling loose. Plus it has odor-reducing qualities, and care comfortable enough to make them an incredible pair of practice (or pajama) pants.
Rhone Reign Midweight Jogger
Real gold particles are infused into these pants—yes, really—but it’s not a luxury publicity stunt. Gold naturally eliminates odors, provides a UPF 50+ rating for sun protection, and helps retain the color of the pants with every wash.
BALEAF Men’s Yoga Leggings
Breathable and lightweight, these leggings will make you forget that you’re even wearing them. They fit like a second skin, retaining their form as you practice yoga, run, cycle, and much more. The second skin nature is perfect in a yoga class because the mobility of the pant won’t restrict your movements.
Vuori Sunday Performance Jogger
These joggers are some of the most comfortable—and versatile—pants that you’ll ever own. The ankle cuffs and waistband keep them snug on your body as you practice yoga, run, rock climb, and anything else that gets your body moving, while being extraordinarily soft and stylish for running errands on a chilly day. A favorite at Yoga Journal, they’re especially cozy to wear when working from home.
Lululemon City Sweat French Terry Jogger
These joggers offer Lululemon’s classic tapered fit with breathability at the forefront. Lycra fibers are blended into the Terry fabric making them extra soft and sweat-wicking, so they can handle vigorous vinyasa classes. Plus, the sleek design and style make them great as casual wear while you’re going from the studio to lunch or anywhere else your day takes you.
Under Armour Sportstyle Pique Pants
Durability reigns supreme for these tapered pants made with a textured knit fabric. Being entirely polyester, they’re quick-drying and moisture-wicking, plus there’s zippers near the ankles so you can let the legs breathe if you’re getting too hot.
Champion Jersey Jogger
The quick cord waistband on these pants allows for cinch-fitting comfort, keeping the pants secure around your hips as you stretch your legs in yoga or extend your stride during a run. Plus, the cotton fabric is nice and warm for slow Restorative or Yin Yoga classes.
Manduka Performance Yoga Jogger
As creators of trusted yoga gear for over 24 years, it’s no surprise that Manduka’s joggers were built with your practice in mind. The relaxed fit provides ample space to move without constriction while the drawstring closure keeps the pants firmly around your waist.
Smartwool Merino 250 Baselayer
Level up your morning flows with unparalleled warmth. This base layer provides the perfect balance of next-to-skin contouring and elasticity so they’ll hug your body without feeling tight or constricting. And merino wool naturally moves sweat away from your body, so the pants won’t soak through in a sweaty class.
