Tuff Athletics Review: Camo Long Leggings

#1 Size: I tested out Tuff Athletics in Costco and determined that I felt most comfortable in a size Small. When trying to find my size, I noticed there were mostly M-XL left in the pile. Seems that the leggings were pretty popular.


    • XS=0-2 | S=2-4 | M=6-8 | L=8-10 | XL=12-14 | XXL=16-18 | 2X=24-26
    • Inseam (in): XS=25½ | S=26 | M=26½ | L=27 | XL=27½ | XXL=27½ | 2X=26½

#2 Style:  The leggings are long length. The Tuff Athletics line includes yoga pants, capris, jackets, tops, tanks, skorts, and fleece hoodies.

#3 Inseam:  The inseam is 26″ and fit like lululemon’s High Times pants. I would consider this a 7/8 length pant even though they are considered long length.

#4 Rise: I find the rise of the pants to fit like a low rise pant. It fits 2″ below my navel.

#5 Waistband: The leggings come with a medium height waistband measuring 3″. I did experience some slippage with the leggings.

UPDATE: Tuff Athletics now offers high-waistbands! This prevents any slippage issues. Shop high-waistband leggings.>>

#6 Fabric

  • Fabric Content: Supplex Fabric (51% Polyesther/36% Nylon Supplex/13% Lycra)
  • Fabric Feel: Fabric feels similar to lululemon’s luon and Athleta’s Pilayo Lycra blend. The fabric feels soft and smooth. You can see the knitting of the fabric. Fabric is very lightweight.
  • Fabric Performance: Fabric has 4-way stretch and is compressive and form-fitting. The fabric fits like a second skin. Fabric is quick-drying. Colors do not fade. I am not sure if the fabric will pill as I’ve only worn it twice. I will update when it does.
  • Opacity: The fabric is 100% opaque.
  • Fabric Features: The pants have a waistband pocket that zips closed and is lined in mesh. The pocket looks pretty stealth and fits comfortably around the waist. There is a reflective floral logo on the middle back of the waistband.

#7 When to Wear: Tuff Athletics was once for activewear, but now they promote their products as lifestyle clothing that can be worn anytime.

#8 Cost: The leggings range from $16-$20. They’re definitely affordable!

#9 Gusset: Tuff Athletics does NOT have a gusset. The + shaped seam in the crotch area is made with flat fell seams and look and feels sturdy. The gusset is exactly like the ones found on Lorna Jane leggings.

#10 Stitch Seam: Flat fell seams are used throughout the leggings to prevent chafing.

#11 UPF Protection: 40+ UPF

#12 Made in China. Designed in British Columbia, Canada.

#13 Care Instructions: These pants are indestructible so feel free to machine wash and tumble dry low. I would still machine wash and tumble dry on low.

Should I Buy Tuff Athletics?

If you’re on a budget, Tuff Athletics is the way to go! The fabric is excellent in quality and for the price, it’s hard to pass on. It’s a pant that you can buy to wear around the home or while working out. I would even get messy in these. I love that I won’t have to worry about ruining my $16 leggings!

The inseam is very short, so if you’re a taller human, Tuff Athletics may not be for you.
