Arc’teryx Oriel Leggings Review: Tough Leggings That Will Last

Most leggings are designed to handle brunch and a light stretching session. Not Arc’teryx’s Oriel Leggings, which are made with rock climbing in mind, but still stylish and comfortable enough for everyday use.

Arc’teryx Oriel Leggings Review:

Price and Where to Buy: The leggings are available on Arc’teryx’s website for $89.

[st_content_ad]How the Arc’teryx Oriel Leggings Rate:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. The Oriel leggings are made from a super strong elastane and nylon blend that isn’t see-through at any angle. These can be worn on their own during a workout, or under a dress for a more stylish look. Unlike many leggings, these have two large pockets that can comfortably fit a smartphone and other essentials.
  • Value: 7/10. The price is comparable to other high-end leggings, and these will last much longer than most leggings.
  • Durability: 10/10. The Oriel Leggings are abrasion- and tear-resistant, and designed to stand up to vigorous workouts.
  • Style: 10/10. Available in three different solidly opaque colors, these leggings can double as pants or work under a dress or tunic.

Final Verdict: Tired of flimsy leggings? Invest in the Arc’teryx Oriels.
