Memorial Day is nearly here, with its arrival sure to herald a bevy of bike rides, beach days, and camping trips on your calendar. Summer is the season of Doing Things, which is why it’s so opportune that Strat-favorite athleisure brand Outdoor Voices is currently running an Extra Sale, offering up to 50 percent off some of its most beloved styles. Below, we’ve rounded up deeply discounted leggings, bike shorts, tank tops, and more to carry you through the jam-packed months ahead — but act fast, as we’ve already seen a few popular products sell out.
Strategist editor Maxine Builder bought the Warmup leggings twice in month because she loved them so much — and ended up wearing them for all sorts of activities beyond the gym.
When we went looking for the best women’s workout leggings, Hannah Jean Hildreth, an instructor at 305 Fitness, told us her Move Free leggings look “svelte as heck” and are “great for yoga because I find they stretch in all directions and wick sweat quickly.”
OV’s cult-favorite All Day line has been championed by multiple people for its supersoft CloudKnit fabric. MichaelAnn Cohlmia, a co-founder of CBD brand WeedSport, loves the men’s All Day long-sleeves because they remain “forever soft” without any “shrinking or warping.” If you prefer a more feminine silhouette, this perfectly-slouchy crewneck is now 50 percent off.
Former Strategist senior writer (and seasoned marathon runner) Karen Adelson reaches for the Hudson shorts on days when she’s feeling “bloated or just a little, for lack of a better word, jiggly in my midsection.” The extra-wide waistband provides additional core support and “keeps everything sucked in while still letting my legs move freely.”
Adelson is also a fan of these Zoom shorts, as they have a “just-right length that won’t creep up,” plus “deep pockets to fit my phone, keys, and energy gels.”
Candace Taylor, the chief inspiration officer at 305 Fitness, says her favorite sports bra is the Outdoor Voices Doing Things bra. It offers medium support for cup sizes AA to D and features a mesh racerback for comfort and mobility.
Elevate your loungewear game with these color-blocked joggers. Made from soft cotton terry, the two-toned cream- and-dove-gray palette makes them far more interesting than your standard solid.
If you tend to get hungry on your hikes, the Snacks bra is aptly named: It’s designed with a secure pocket in the back where you can stash miscellaneous items like your phone, your keys, or an emergency granola bar.
The RecTrek pants are Journy co-founder and frequent flier Leiti Hsu’s go-to travel attire. She says they’re “the ultimate in comfort” and look “way more pulled-together than yoga pants.”
These versatile sweatpants will keep you looking stylish whether you’re hitting the gym or the grocery store.
Made for low-impact workouts, the Flow bralette comes with adjustable straps that can be worn crisscross or straight. Snag one for 40 percent off in this sunny-gold space-dye knit.
Complete the set with a pair of Flow shorts — you’re sure to be the best-dressed student at the yoga studio.
If even matching separates feel too fussy, this full-length bodysuit is the ultimate throw-on-and-go wardrobe staple.
This men’s tank from the All Day line is currently half off — and destined to become a summer staple.
When we spoke to stylish men about their favorite gym shorts, copywriter Jon Roth told us he’s a fan of OV’s High Stride model. “Since I mostly hate exercise, finding cool workout clothes has been a good motivator,” he said. “These are cut high enough to show some thigh but also lined so nothing else shows.” Roth prefers a five-inch inseam, but if that’s a bit too daring for you, try this pair with a seven-inch inseam in a deep orangey red.
This long-sleeve shirt has added mesh panels to keep you cool when you’re working up a sweat.
Former Grub Street senior editor Sierra Tishgart raved about the All Day sweatpants, which she says are “as flattering as they are comfortable.” Hers are the women’s version, but Outdoor Voices makes them for men, too.
This version of the Rectrek pants features zip-off sections that allow you to wear them three different ways: as shorts, as capris, or as full-length trousers.
Throw on this relaxed mid-weight hoodie for a laid-back weekend look.
We’re headed into warmer weather, but considering how freezing it can feel inside air-conditioned buildings, you may want to keep this fleece jacket on hand just in case.
