Kapow! Run Oregon is reviewing “Meggings”


From what I have seen, I am pretty sure most women’s wardrobes consist of at least a few leggings options. From running and working out, to slipping on after a day at work, to even utilizing as a fashion statement, leggings seem to be the ultimate wardrobe tool. I, as a man, haven’t really seen the same sort of enthusiasm and committment to leggings in our wardrobes – though we may not be that far off consider how fashion is now conforming to items such as sweatpant joggers and slim fit jeans.

All that aside, I am never one to shy away from bold colors and fashion statements – which is why I was eager to try out Kapow Meggings. I didn’t commit fully to utilizing these as an everyday staple, but was very eager to try out their Performance Megging line. Here is more about it.

Kapow Performance men’s leggings are designed to get physical. High performance spandex and polyester construction provides mid-level compression to help stabilize muscles while providing superior support, comfort and durability. Engineered with 4-way stretch, extra tough stitching, and sweat-wicking technology, plus secure & slimline hip pockets to hold your phone and keys firm whether you’re running, wrestling, or BASE jumping.

First of all, it’s very easy to see that these aren’t your standard colors – these are B-O-L-D BOLD. Just take a gander at their designs and prepare to be impressed. I mean…




As far as fit and function goes, these seem to hold up quite well. They are really stretchy and lightweight and have the same moisture-wicking technology that is necessary for performance apparel these days. They are compression, but not as restrictive as some options out there. They also have flat seams that keep chafing from occurring. I haven’t been brave enough to wear without a pair of shorts overtop, but I know that this is possible. I expected to dislike the two pockets after first looking at the pictures (they seemed bulky), but they are actually far from that! I do really like them – one smaller one that would be great for holding energy gel or a key, and a little longer zipped one that worked quite well with my iPhone.

Overall, these a really fun pair of tights that I feel will be added into my colder-weather running rotation!
