INSPIRING OUTDOOR CONNECTIONS

FROM MAT TO MOUNTAINS: 3 LEGGINGS TO GET YOU MOVING (TRY + BUY)

, 2017, April 18 /

When it comes to activewear, there’s nothing better than versatility. The magic of being able to wear your clothes from workout to a lunch out and beyond is a necessity these days. As women balancing everyday life, getting outside and keeping grounded with a regular yoga practice; we’re often running from place to place with little time in between to think about outfit changes and staying put together. This inspired me to grab the girls + take a few normally marketed yoga leggings for a test-run outside, literally.

We took into account Fit, Feel + Fabric for each legging, so that when you are looking to grab yourself some new active gear, you already have a good sense of what’s going to work for you. We narrowed it down to our 3 favorites and put together this TRY + BUY guide for you.
All of our selected brands meet the Stranded Tribe’s standards of Consumption with a Because, actively practicing ethical manufacturing, environmental consciousness, and consumer empowerment. Add to that: all of these brands have rad stories and women behind their powerful products. Double bonus points for the inner hidden credit card/key pocket discretely tucked into each pair. Peep our wears, pick your fancy + come get outside North San Diego County with us in one of these great pieces from Girlfriend Collective, SeaVibes Yoga and Amari Active.

A family business at heart, Seavibes yoga is the passion project of the youngest certified yoga teacher out there – Jaysea Devoe. Her brand is made in USA + some factories in Bali which Jaysea and her family have visited. The sublimated prints come from photographs of Jaysea’s travels around the world while teaching yoga. You’ll be inspired just by trying them on. When you take these outside you will find a great level of comfort in how they regulate the temperature of your body vs. outside. They come with a little extra long leg so you can wear them over the heel.

why + consumption with a because //

There’s so much thought and care that has gone into something so simple, my question is why not. Made from recycled + upcycled materials. Crafted with care + road tested by all shapes and sizes to ensure comfort across all body types. Crafted with quick-drying material that allows you to get a sweat in + go on about your day if that’s how you like to roll. And they’re good for hitting the trail, mat or even a quick splash (although we only tested this once). Pair with your favorite high tops and just taking a stroll in the streets. Our home hitter with this  legging is the backstory and About the brand section on the site. High fives to a brand who puts time, detail and love into something they’re putting out into the world. We heart these big time.
