I own a lot of joggers, but these are by far the softest
Vuori really is as good as all the influencers say.

Every morning I go to the gym. Every morning I turn on my favorite podcast—Mind Pump, a fitness show about all things lifting—while I warm up on the treadmill. And every morning, I listen to the hosts of said podcast plug Vuori joggers.
I’m always skeptical of brands advertised on podcasts (or Instagram, or TikTok). And in this case, Vuori is one of Mind Pump’s sponsors. How was I to know if the clothing is actually any good or the hosts are just getting paid to say it is?
The only solution I saw, as Reviewed’s style editor: Try it out for myself. Vuori sells a large variety of activewear in men’s and women’s sizes, from shorts to tank tops to sports bras. As a big loungewear girl, however, I knew exactly what I wanted: the popular Performance Joggers, which have more than 12,000 online reviews and an average rating of 4.8 stars. As it turns out, the $84 I spent on them was well worth it—so I can now say I’ve been “influenced.”
What I like about Vuori joggers
I ordered the Performance Joggers in my usual size small, which fit true to size. The 25-inch inseam hits right at my ankle—I’m 5-foot-5, for reference—and the waistband sits comfortably about two inches below my navel.
The joggers have a slim yet relaxed fit. They hug my thighs—which are pretty muscular thanks to years of lifting—and then fit more loosely around my calves. The ankle cuff is wide and not too tight such that it moves easily with my body when I walk instead of pulling the pants taut, which some tighter elasticized cuffs tend to do.
I love how soft the pants’ fabric is. It’s a blend of recycled polyester and elastane, so it’s both lightweight and stretchy. I feel cozy when I’m wearing the joggers to lounge around, yet I don’t get overheated if I wear them for more vigorous activities, like cleaning the house or going for a walk outside.
What I don’t like about Vuori joggers
There are two things that my Vuori joggers don’t offer a lot of: roominess or warmth. (Neither of these, are deal breakers for me, but I recognize they may be for some!) These pants have a slimmer fit than other pairs of joggers I’ve owned—I’d say they’re looser than leggings but not as baggy as sweats. And because the Vuoris are made of a thin, breathable fabric, they aren’t going to keep you cozy in cold temperatures. These are more suited for spring, summer, or fall than winter, if you live somewhere that gets chilly.
Are Vuori joggers worth buying?
I’ve long been a Lululemon fan, and I’d put both the quality and the comfort of Vuori’s joggers on the same level. As someone who’s also used to Lululemon’s prices, I’m also OK with paying $84 for a pair of pants from Vuori. The joggers come in women’s sizes XXS to XXL and a variety of solid colors and some patterns, including camo. I love how soft and lightweight they are, even as the summer temps climb in Maryland, where I live. That said, if you’re someone who is looking for something more affordable or heavier duty sweatpant, I suggest looking elsewhere.
As for me, I’ll order more pairs of Vuori joggers in the near future. After all, it’s a pant that feels like pajamas but looks more structured and stylish—which basically describes what I live in. How could I say no?
