They need to be soft, they need to be flattering, and they need to be comfortable, they need to be suitable for working out and all-day-wear. Although leggings from expensive brands like Lululemon and Alo Yoga meet all of these requirements, there's a pair on Amazon that checks the boxes, too — and today, it'll only cost you $20. Not only do the Heathyoga High Waisted Leggings meet these prerequisites, but they push the perfect pair of leggings to new heights by including a convenient feature: pockets. Two outside pockets easily hold your phone and cards while you run errands — or actually run — while an interior pocket is ideal for keys, so you can go wallet- and purse-free. ( People Keep Comparing These $30 Old Navy Leggings to Pricier Pairs Amazon Buy It: Heathyoga High Waisted Leggings with Pockets in Black, $20, was $25, amazon.com Nearly 22,000 Amazon shoppers have given these leggings with pockets a five-star rating, calling them "super soft and very breathable." They hold the title of Amazon's best-seller in women's athletic base layers, and customers rave about how the flattering high waist stays put when they exercise. "These are SO soft and make your butt look awesome," one wrote in a review. "Extremely flexible, breathable and moisture wicking," said another shopper. "Just took them for a 3 mile test run — after washing and drying — they stayed in place. That is always my biggest problem with workout pants is that they move around and I have to constantly adjust. No movement up or down, and no visible sweat." Plus, shoppers say they're "squat-proof", aka not see-through at all when you're squatting or stretching. Many happy customers compared them to expensive brands and say they prefer them over highly praised Fabletics, Gymshark, and Adidas leggings. "Hands down, the best leggings I've ever owned," a reviewer wrote. "I want to throw out all of my other pairs and buy every color of these." ( The Perfect Faux Leather Leggings Do Exist, and They're Only $40 at Target The leggings come in 25 colors, and there are capri versions, too. Made with a moisture-wicking fabric, you're free to sweat without worrying about stains or overheating. Normally $25 — which is still a steal for high-quality leggings with pockets — right now, several pairs are under $20, which means you can get four pairs for the price of one expensive pick.
