We were first tipped off to these flattering-yet-comfortable Outdoor Voices sweatpants back in 2016 by Sierra Tishgart, then–Grub Street editor and now-co-founder of cookware brand Great Jones. “As someone who often writes from home, I have a strict policy: Put on pants,” she wrote. “Not jeggings or joggers or pajamas — real pants! Wearing workout gear all day long makes me feel sloppy and lazy, and I’m convinced it actually makes me less productive.” But “my outlook totally changed once I purchased these Outdoor Voices sweatpants,” she said.
According to Sierra, the fabric is “soft, smooth, light, and just the right amount of stretchy (thanks to a mix of polyester and spandex),” and the cut is “sleek and tailored, and not bulky in the slightest.” And over four years later, these supersoft joggers remain a reliable favorite, just as soft as Sierra described (even though the product name has changed from Cloudknit to All Day). Our deputy editor Maxine Builder has been wearing her All Day sweatpants since she started working from home in March, “for any activity, indoors or out,” and swaps the matching All Day tops, depending on the temperature, for a full set. Linda Rodin described these joggers as “beyond comfy,” and told us that she’s “been living in them for weeks now.” Our senior editor Anthony Rotunno even bought a pair for his mom last Christmas and reports that they are still in her regular rotation.
Aesthetically, the All Day sweatpants hit the sweet spot between lounge-at-home-all-day-wear and going-out-to-do-things-wear, and there’s never been a better time to buy a pair — or three — because they’re on sale at Outdoor Voices for just $66, in either navy blue or charcoal. (And if you want to rock the full matching fit, the All Day hoodie, short-sleeve top, and long-sleeve top are also on sale.)
