Under Armour’s Meridian Leggings Are at the Top of Our Christmas Wishlist This Year: Here’s Why

It’s not like we’re asking for much this Christmas: screen-free time spent with loved ones, a few high-quality gifts we can cherish for a long time, a fulfilling meal and some memories made along the way...

And it’s not like we’re asking for much from a pair of leggings either: They just need to be soft, supportive and able to withstand a range of workouts—from hot yoga and pilates to outdoor runs and everything in between. Oh, a pocket for our cell phone or keys would be nice too.

But surprisingly, this ideal combination isn’t always easy to find (or they’ll cost you an arm and a leg). Enter: Under Armour’s Meridian leggings. Designed using UA’s specially engineered performance knit fabric, they’re lightweight yet breathable, as well as extra supportive. They’ve actually brushed the surface of the fabric to an ultra-soft finish—so they’re truly Under Armour’s softest leggings ever.

This special material also wicks sweat and is super quick-drying, plus contains anti-odor technology to prevent the growth of odor-causing microbes—i.e., you could totally wear them for back-to-back workout days (#judgmentfreezone).

The high-rise waistband gives you that sucked-in feeling without being constricting, and while they are buttery soft, they also stay put once you pull them up. No hiking these babies up to the high heavens at mile marker one. Did we mention there’s not one, but two side drop-in pockets for easy cell phone access? At $70, they remind us of some other popular workout leggings, but at a much better price point.

Santa, we officially know exactly what we want for Christmas this year (and it’s to look cute and feel good while breaking a sweat).
