Top Activewear & Post-Workout Apparel to Stay Comfy and Supported All Day Long

Sponsored by our partner, CRAFT Sportswear

When it comes to OCR, it’s natural to abuse your gear. It comes with the sport. Think: sweat, mud, rain, hail, sunshine and snow, not to mention miles on trail that beat the crap out of anything you’re wearing. Fact: comfort, form, fit and durability are key to performing at your best. At this point, you likely (and rightly) have your training and racing essentials dialed (we get it, we’re gear snobs, too!).

But what about suiting up after your workouts? Sacrificing versatility and style to wear bleh, non-breathable clothes is just silly — especially in a pandemic, when working from home is the new norm and office outfits are a thing of the past. So, take your performance wear next-level with these cozy, supportive, suave-looking threads that have you covered for post-workout comfort, zero to hero.

Best After-Workout Activewear — Because You Deserve to Be Comfy, ALWAYS

For The Ladies

1. District Jacket

Layer up with the lightweight, water-resistant District Jacket in subtle, but cool camo. Its full-zip design makes for easy-off, easy-on use, and you can cinch the adjustable hood tight when fall weather gets rough. It’s perfect for everything from a cool down to a grocery store run.

2. Poise Jogger

Sweatpants don’t have to be frumpy. Enter: the Poise Jogger, a casual-but-cute pant that’s perfect for post-workout recovery and lounging around. Cuffed leg openings keep them flush with your ankles for a better fit, a drawstring waist allows you to tighten as needed and two side pockets are ideal for stashing keys or a phone on the go. Plus, the ultra soft, organic cotton fabric will make you want to live in these puppies 24/7.

3. Deft SS Tee

Snuggle up in the Deft SS Tee that’s perfect for chilling on weekends. A relaxed fit provides ample room without sear-sucking to your curves, but still keeps you feeling feminine in a classic crew cut. Cozy and comfy, you can kick back knowing there’ll be zero bunching, thanks to its flatlock seams. Throw it on after a workout for daily activities and let the good times roll.

4. Eaze Tight

There’s a reason so many women rock yoga pants 24/7. They’re comfy and forgiving as hell, so why not? The versatile Eaze Tight provides moisture transport during indoor workouts, like yoga, and internal drawcords allow for fit adjustment as you wear them (or sleep in them!) throughout the day. Plus, the modern print is easy to pair with basic v-necks and jackets, so you still feel put together, but you’re not a slave to fashion. (Because, TBH, there are better things to worry about.)

5. Eaze Jersey Short

Remember those ultra kush jersey shorts you rocked in college? Yeah, well, these are better. Slip on the Eaze Jersey Short and relish how cozy the internally-brushed fabric feels against your bottom. You can adjust the wide waistband with the drawstring, stash your key in the internal pocket and move freely all day long. These shorts won’t get in your way.

For The Guys

1. Urban Run Wind Fuseknit Jacket 

Yes, it’s a running jacket with wind- and water-repellent front, hood and sleeves, so you can sport it during workouts on a dreary day. Its versatility takes you from sweat sesh to street with seamless knitted backing to support freedom of movement. Thumb grips keep the sleeves in place no matter how hard you’re hacking it, and a zippered chest pocket adds storage convenience for jetting around town.

2. Grits FZ Hoodie

Super-soft organic cotton is where it’s at for fall. This comfy hoodie, splashed with a subtle tonal Spartan logo is perfect for post-workout wear. Contrast lining in the hood gives it a badass look, and two zippered side pockets ensure you have plenty of space for your essentials. Consider this your best friend when it comes to warming up after a sweaty trail run. Guaranteed.

3. Deft 2.0 Comfort Short

When it comes to caring for the boys, breathability and versatility is key. Stretch woven polyester fabric takes you from lifting session to standing desk with ease. Two side-seam pockets provide a perfect place to stash a wallet on the go, and an inner drawcord ensures a snug fit when you need it. What more could you want in a post-workout short?

4. Grit Jogger

Sure, you love sweatpants (hey, who doesn’t?), but you don’t have to look like a slob. The casual Grit Jogger combines a drawstring cinch at the waist with zippered side pockets and a back pocket (think: no more losing keys!), to take these black, sporty pants next level from your usual PJs. Plus, cuffed leg openings keep them out of your way as you dominate the day.

5. Charge Tech Tee

This ain’t your typical tee. A meshed back provides extra ventilation during workouts and afterward, taking your post-workout apparel to a new level. Its polyester-elastane blend is specially engineered to transport moisture so it lets you breathe throughout the day. And the frontside looks like a classic crew, but feels much softer (read: more comfortable). Consider this your ultimate cropped-sleeve baselayer for the fall.

Editor’s Note: CRAFT is a Swedish company, and its gear tends to fit long and lean. (Some say that’s what makes them fast!) If you’re between sizes, we recommend sizing up to ensure the proper fit.
