  1. Specs – Men’s leggings for warm weather.
  2. Cost – £22.07 on 13th September 2016 from the Direct Sports, yes it is Direct Sports and not the Mr Ashley’s Sports Direct (for the UK readers).  http://www.directsportseshop.co.uk/dsdeptproduct/tabletennis/mens-compression/under-armour-heatgear-compression-mens-legging-(black-steel)?ProductID=20284
  3. Fit – Great fit, the leggings were tight all over but not uncomfortably tight.
  4. Function – Did what they were meant to do. It was warm last night. Yet they felt comfortable throughout the run, and my legs were not sweaty when I took them off. This was in contrast to the cheap running T-Shirt I bought from Primark previously for £2 in the sale (still a bargain though haha). My back was very sweaty and my upper half was noticeably redder.
  5. Fashion – Looks cool. Nice dark black, with a bit of shine. Branded so you can tell they are Under Armour, but not vulgar in the branding.

Disclaimer – I bought the leggings myself, on my own accord and from a website of my choosing….which is a shame haha!!!

I wanted to get some leggings for my runs in September and October, for when it might not be shorts weather. I was just going to get some cheap Karrimor’s from Sports Direct, but decided to have a look on Google first. One of the first sites that popped up was Direct Sports. This was a bonus for me as the Direct Sports HQ/Warehouse is on the same industrial estate where I work. I liked the look of the leggings I would buy and thought they were a good price. So I printed off the page and walked over to the warehouse. Where they have a little shop for the public. They quickly got the product for me and matched the online price.

Conclusion – I am really happy with the purchase. I am glad I didn’t just get a cheap pair, as the comfort levels of these compared to my cheap t-shirt is amazing. When the weather gets colder, I would definitely be happy getting the ColdGear leggings.
