Running pants by H&M: product review

I hate running tights! They reveal things that should stay hidden, and I think they're just plain ugly. So when I saw these sporty pants at H&M, it was love at first sight.

And every time I wear them, I hear this song in my head: 'Everybody goes KungFu Fightihing!' and I feel like kicking my right leg in the air!


These pants are made out of a material that is quick to dry, which is an absolute must for any running clothes. In my day to day life as a mom, I swear by natural fabrics like cotton, but in my life as a runner I only wear high tech fabrics. I'm a real Sweaty Betty, so I like my clothes to get rid of the sweat...


The waisband is elastic, and has a drawstring, so you can wear it loose or tight. There are two side pockets with a zipper, which come in very handy to put some money or your housekey!

At the bottom of the pants there's a blind drawstring.

To sum up

These sports pants of H&M are very suitable for running. And because of the model, they're also well suited for the school run or for when you want to grab yourself a cup of coffee during your runs. Which I often do!

I like them so much, I'm tempted to wear them in my life as a mom! And that's saying something, because I'm a skirt person all the way.

These pants set me back 41 dollars, but they're definitely worth it.

  1. Have you tried out Old Navy's fitness line?

    Also, noticed you're a Grid Omni girl too. DO you love the Saucony Mirages enough to switch to them as your regular shoes?

  2. I like those too. I hate tight pants. Thanks for joining my Planet Weidknecht weekend hop!
