These are my favorite leggings for hiking because of all of the pockets and the fact that they stay in place super well. I am 5'5 and 160 pounds and wear a Medium.
These stay up but man were they tight . I bought my normal medium and I'f I sized up they would've fell down.
You can never go wrong with black leggings especially amps! I love the seamed waistband. The pockets keep my phone snug so I don't have to worry about it falling out. I use these for running, spin bike, HIIT workouts and everyday wear. 5'4", 145lbs ordered a size small
I love my Amps and after my husband complaining how they didn’t make men’s compression with pockets I bought these for him. He loves them! His iphone 10 in a case fits into the pocket just fine. I got him a Large and they fit just fine (he’s a men 36 in jeans and 30 inseam). I noticed some people didn’t like the placement of the pockets but I like them and I’ve always enjoyed the fabric of Amps because it’s a great sweat wicking fabric.
Honestly, these did not live up to my expectations. I was very excited for a plain black lux pair of leggings, but the seams at the waist, pockets, and ankles are disproportionately tight in my normal size. The pockets are high, too far back (almost on your butt), and too narrow! My phone barely fit and just sits so awkward with how far back the pockets are. Also, I hate to say it, but the quality of this fabric is sub-par. It doesn’t even come close to alpines/denalis.
