What’s Your Favorite Major Brand of Workout Apparel?

So, yeah, I pretty much wet myself with excitement in this week’s adidas apparel review. I freakin’ loved that stuff! And, in the past, we’ve been known to gush about a lot of pieces from the other big company’s like Nike, Under Armour, Puma, New Balance—the list goes on and on.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to check out Reebok’s headquarters in Canton, Mass., for a blogger’s event. While we’ll be sharing more of that trip with you soon, let’s just say that Reebok has seriously moved up the totem pole on my list of “favorite apparel companies.” But tell us who tops your list. What major company strikes your workout-apparel fancy?

Alright, now spill the beans why! Or who your close second was… —Jenn

    Out of the options you listed there, I chose under armor, because I’m faithful to my under armor running shirts – fit good, good quality, moisture wicking extraordinaire.

    Not listed though, I’m totally obsessed with prAna clothes these days. Super cute and wearable for every day, but also highly functional in the gym as well as for other non-gym athletic activities. When we went on a recent rock climbing trip, I brought a whole suitcase of leggings and yoga pants (what I wear to climb in the climbing gym), and my one pair of prAna hiking/climbing pants, which I picked up on a whim the week before our trip. After one test outing, I wore the prAna pants every day, and the yoga pants barely saw the outside of the suitcase. The prAna pair was super comfortable, super durable, had great stretch, and had the added benefit of not snagging on the rock while I climbed or the trees while I hiked, which I quickly realized would have been problematic with the woven material of my leggings and yoga pants. Plus they look like normal pants and make my booty look cute. I bought a second pair in a different color as soon as I got home.

    Skirt Sports! I feel feminine, covered sufficiently, and am supported all at once! It’s the best.

    I love Lucy’s! No really — Lucy has one of the most comfortable clothes available out there. I’ve never felt so feminine until I met Lucy.

    I really my running stuff by Sugoi, it lasts forever!

    Love Athleta for apparel and Nike for shoes. I also get a discount at Victoria’s Secret and love their stuff as well.

    Zella! I love this Nordstrom brand. Their pants are amazing. They are incredibly flattering and comfortable and really fit well for all types of work outs. They are a bit pricey but still cheaper than Lululemon. Love, love, love them.

    I voted for Lululemon. Good quality, adorable, super-comfortable. But lately I’m adoring Patagonia. They’re very transparent for a big company, honest about what they do (what they do well and mistakes they’ve made), and they are certainly environmentally (and probably socially) conscious. If I’m going to buy new (and not barely used from ebay), I buy Patagonia or Lululemon.

    definitely Skirt Sports!
