In the years since Lululemon first branched out from yoga apparel into the wider world of activewear, we’ve come to have our pick of the best Lululemon leggings for a range of workouts. There are full-length compression tights, cozy fleece-lined pairs, and comfy cropped workout leggings—just to give you an idea of the options that abound from this high-end (and frequent SELF Activewear Award-winning) brand.

Lululemon is admittedly on the pricier end of the spectrum, but the quality of its leggings often helps justify its cost. SELF testers and editors along with online reviewers report fantastic returns on their investments: Lululemon leggings don’t tend to pill, chafe, sag, or get sopping wet. Instead, they garner glowing reviews for their ultrasoft four-way stretch fabrics that wick away sweat and moisture, and, in some cases, stay cool and dry to the touch throughout a workout. And when it comes to fit, the reliably high-rise wide waistbands and fitted legs feel supportive and like a second skin. Even better still? Some pairs of Lululemon leggings feature an all-important drawstring at the waist to customize fit, and a set of side pockets for storage.

Whether you’re strength training, running errands (or just plain running), or doing yoga (which, as you can tell from its top-rated mats and yoga accessories, is still the brand’s bread and butter), there’s a Lulu legging that’ll feel great and keep up with you. Here, we’ve highlighted the very best Lululemon leggings to try now, for all types of activities.

    Best for Cold Weather Runs: Fast and Free High-Rise Fleece Tight

    This water-repellent legging came highly recommended by Kaitlyn Faist, a NASM-certified personal trainer and runner from Chicago, who previously told SELF that its fleece lining makes it an excellent choice for wintertime jogs and outings. “Brushed fleece traps air between your legs and the leggings, creating a heat barrier to keep you warm,” she explained, adding that the fact that it’s also quick-drying will keep you from catching a cold even when you stop sweating.

    Available in sizes 0 to 20.
