When it comes to workout gear, you want something that's comfortable, dependable, stylish, and probably affordable. That might seem like a tall order, but in the activewear space, there's so much out there that, luckily, you have a lot to choose from. In fact, sometimes the selection can be so vast and overwhelming, especially if you're looking to cash in on that Prime membership and get something off Amazon. Just a quick search for "leggings" on the site pulls up over 70,000 results.
To help you sort through all the options, we took on the challenge of finding the best leggings on Amazon based on ratings and reviews and our own personal favorites. Take a look at what we came up with below, and get ready to upgrade your workout gear.
1. Amazon Essentials Performance Mid-Rise Full-Length Active Legging
Amazon Essentials Performance Mid-Rise Full-Length Active Legging ($19)
Amazon has a lot of in-house offerings, including workout gear, which are always affordable and, for the most part, have pretty good reviews. These leggings check both boxes—they're under $20 and have a 4.5-star rating. With a wide waistband and moisture-wicking fabric, you'll be comfortable no matter what your fitness routine is.
2. ODODOS Out Pocket High Waist Yoga Pants
ODODOS Out Pocket High Waist Yoga Pants ($22)
With over 9000 ratings and four stars, you can't go wrong with these cheap leggings. The high-waist yoga pants have a side pocket so you can easily store your phone, which is perfect if you're on a run, or just don't want to bring a gym bag with you.
3. Colorfulkoala Buttery Soft High Waisted Yoga Pants
Colorfulkoala Buttery Soft High Waisted Yoga Pants ($23)
These come in a variety of colors, so you could have a different hue for each day of the week if you wanted. Many reviewers commented that they're of the same quality as a certain designer legging in terms of style and durability, but for a fraction of the price.
4. Core 10 'Race Day' High Waist Run Mesh Capri Legging
Core 10 'Race Day' High Waist Run Mesh Capri Legging ($32)
Another option from an Amazon brand, Core 10, these capri-length leggings have reflective details, a hidden zip pocket, and mesh insets. One reviewer wrote, "I'm a little bit of a perfectionist when it comes to exercise wear (my drawer of rejects is proof of that). I am delighted with the sizing, quality, fit, style of these leggings. No roll-down at the waist and the legs stay down."
5. Rocorose Yoga Pants
Rocorose Yoga Pants ($25)
These leggings come highly rated with five stars. They have two pockets for your phone, keys, and cash, and there are printed and solid-colored options. Reviewers commented on the high-quality fabric, but some noted that they run a bit small.
6. 90 Degree by Reflex High Waist Power Flex Capri
90 Degree by Reflex High Waist Power Flex Capri ($20)
The high waistband makes workouts more comfortable, so you can move with confidence. Plus, the material is stretchy and moisture-wicking. One reviewer offered these tips, "Select your normal size when ordering these pants. When you first get them they will feel a little stiff, but don't let the stiffness discourage you. After a couple of wears, they will soften and mold to you naturally. I washed and dried these pants several times and they did not shrink."
7. Core 10 Spectrum Yoga High Waist 7/8 Crop Legging
Core 10 Spectrum Yoga High Waist 7/8 Crop Legging ($40)
Made of medium-weight fabric, these leggings are comfortable for working out and lounging. There's a convenient pocket located in the center back of the waistband to hold your phone. One reviewer raved about the pair, but with one caveat: "I do cardio kickboxing and lifting. My two questions when deciding on a pair of leggings are is this item see-through and will my sweat show? For this pair, the answer is they are not see-through, but after an hour of kickboxing my sweat was showing."
8. Joyspels Mesh Yoga Pants
Joyspels Mesh Yoga Pants ($22)
If you like mesh paneling for a little bit of breathability, these might be your new go-to pair. One Amazon review reads, "I am obsessed with these leggings! First of all the fit is phenomenal. [They're] true high-waisted, tummy and booty flattering, no camel-toe, and they don't ride up or fall down. Not to mention the material is fantastic. It sort of reminds me of a thin wet suit feel."
9. Baleaf Fleece-Lined Leggings
Baleaf Fleece-Lined Leggings ($28)
If you plan on keeping up your outdoor runs as the temperature drops, you're going to need to invest in some warmer leggings. These are fleece-lined to keep you cozy and have moisture-wicking fabric to keep you dry.
10. LifeSky High Waist Yoga Pants
LifeSky High Waist Yoga Pants ($20)
Super soft and stretchy, these leggings are a number one best seller on Amazon. One reviewer wrote, "I've purchased several pairs of yoga pants and active leggings in the last few months. These are by far the best. The feel of the fabric is buttery, but has a nice level of compression. They also have held up really well to multiple washes."

Why not add some patterned leggings to your closet? These have a high waistband, side tech pockets, and moisture-wicking fabric.
12. Under Armour HeatGear Armour Capri

13. RBX Active Cotton Spandex Capri Leggings
RBX Active Cotton Spandex Capri Leggings ($24)
Everyone needs a classic pair of leggings in their activewear inventory. One reviewer wrote, "I love these! The material is so soft and very nice material, thick but not to the point it makes you feel like you're going to melt. The cross pattern on the legs is so cute and a great touch."
14. RBX Active Seasonal Printed Capri Length Yoga Leggings
RBX Active Seasonal Printed Capri Length Yoga Leggings ($20)
For those unafraid of pattern, might we suggest these eye-catching capris? You'll really stand out in class. One reviewer said, "I love these pants. I wish I could wear them every day.
