Hi @surfingob While I won’t say I necessarily like these for hiking; I will say that I wear the Salutation 7/8 stash pocket for EVERYTHING. I like them for yoga because they are snug without feeling like compression. I like the high waist because they look cute with Athleta’s crop tips like Conscious Crop and they are stable enough to wear running- they don’t fall down or bunch at the ankles. Yes I have worn them hiking , and out to dinner, and to the supermarket. I suppose I need one for every day of the week!https://athleta.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=531321
Hi @surfingob, a hike with friends sounds like so much fun, especially going into the new season! I think the Headlands Hybrid Cargo II Tight is the best gal for the job. Great for hiking and comes in 3 colors + sizing for regular, petite, and tall. Plus it comes with SIX pockets 😍
I hope you have the best time with your girlfriends and let me know if you try out the tights!
Hi @surfingob! I've hiked extensively in the Headlands Hybrid Cargo Tights. I haven't tried the new version that @Guen_E recommended, but they seem fantastic. Consider the terrain that you'll be hiking in; the last thing you want is to get snags or tears in a pair of yoga leggings from brush or rocky outcrops.
Hikers generally don't wear leggings! Not saying you can't, but they are not going to protect you from snagging branches, or rocks/roots, if you trip and fall. And of course, your leggings will be ruined. Athleta makes hiking pants, or at least they used to. I have 4 pairs, 2 are for warm or cooler weather, one is for winter, and one capri length that are good for 3 seasons. If you are really set on leggings, then the Headlands Hybrid cargo would be my choice.
