Running leggings

I am sure this must be a regular topic but all I can find are posts that are 6 years old! Can anyone recommend good running leggings that are supportive, comfy, wash and wear well, and have a small pocket for keys? I keep finding ones online that look good then the reviews are awful!

Ideally looking for Sweaty Betty style and quality at M&S prices ha ha (aren't we all?). I do have one pair of cropped SB leggings and they are superb but can't justify cost of a new full-length pair right now. Suggestions gratefully received 😊👍.

Hi. I’ve got Nike and Karrimor leggings/tights. Both great and have zipped pocket on back. Sportsdirect do the Karrimor at great prices.

Thank you for ultra swift reply! Do you know if the sizing is true or do they come up big/small? We have a Sportsdirect locally but always a chaotic mess, so it helps if you know what you are looking for!

I always go up one size as hate is tight on waist. I ordered online as agree store is awful! But probably better to try on in the store.

I got my favourite ones from Costco, soft and comfy, wash well, little pocket for a key, cool patterns and very cheap 😎

I find tkmaxx great for sports clothes; although it is hit and miss. If you fall lucky you can find quality brands at discount prices (I sound like I’m advertising but I’m not on commission I promise!)

Also, refuse to shop at sports direct on principle.

Type in 'sweaty betty leggings' on ebay. I've bought a few at cost by doing this. Also 'Tribe Sports' do excellent running leggings. They are expensive but if you wait until the sales you'll get them at half the price.

I got mine from m and s, but I saw a very nice looking pair in Sainsbury's that I'm tempted by.

Bloody hell tempted by running gear, what is happening 🤯😬

I’ve got a cracking pair from Tesco. They have pockets on each leg although I cannot abide putting anything in them (I use a keyfix around my wrist for keys).
