    Rejoice! You can now keep your phone close to you all day, even if you are in activewear.

    Most tights come without pockets, or at best, small slots to hold your keys. We guess you don’t really need a clunky smartphone next to your skin when you’re exercising. Or do you?

    These days, people don’t just wear workout leggings to the studio anymore.

    Thanks to the growing availability of pretty and functional fitness bottoms, people now wear them everywhere, from the supermarket to the plane. Of course, having a pocket big enough to hold your phone (or passport) while you’re travelling or running errands will save you lots of time and hassle.

    We scoured the stores to find these legit leggings with pockets. Finally, pants you can wear anywhere! Click right to view.
