This review is way pass due. It has been it in queue for months, and I finally have it ready. I'd prefer to share leggings that I keep and test for yoga and/or gym workouts, but that's not always the case. Since I returned Outdoor Voice Tri-Tone Legging, I won't be able to provide a comprehensive review like I normally do. With the said, it is still worth to share some pros and cons of Outdoor Voices Tri-Tone Legging. After all, it is a highly rated and popular legging.

Details of Outdoor Voices Tri-Tone Legging -
Compared to the most well known athleisure brands like Athleta and Lululemon, Outdoor Voices doesn't carry as wide variety of products and their designs are more basic. You won't find any patterned legging on Outdoor Voices. Their best sellers are Warmup Leggings and Springs Leggings. The tri-tone color blocks of Springs Leggings has become one of the signature designs of Outdoor Voices.
I ordered Outdoor Voices Tri-Tone Legging in Nany/Blacksberry/Marine the same time as Tech Sweat 3/4 Legging, previously reviewed, in March. I ended up keeping Tech Sweat 3/4 Legging and returned Tri-Tone Legging. Although I like the design and color combination of Tri-Tone Legging, the fabric and fit do not work for me. Let's take a quick look of Outdoor Voices Tri-Tone Legging.
The legging is made in China.
I can't provide much performance feedback; however, I do notice that the fabric is high compression and it's not stretchy enough for yoga. It may be okay for gym workouts. Due to the fact that it felt short on elasticity, I decided not to keep the legging.
Outdoor Voices Tri-Tone Legging is constructed with flatlocking seams. The triangle shaped gusset is lined. The fabric is completely opaque. The legging is definitely well made.
I'd say it is TTS, but it's snugger than Tech Sweat 3/4 Legging. The reason is probably due to the less stretchy and high compression fabric of Tri-Tone Legging. One bonus of wearing a high compression legging is that it gives a slim and leggy look. In addition, it shapes and lifts the bum nicely.
The legging is medium rise. It provides sufficient support for the midsection but doesn't hide the muffin top well, mostly due to the elastic band that digs into the waist.
Since the fabric is not very stretchy, it isn't very comfortable. I feel restricted and hard to move. Some people may like the elastic band, but it doesn't work for me. It digs into my waist and doesn't hide the muffin top well.
Unfortunately, Outdoor Voices Tri-Tone Legging does not work for me. Despite of its high quality and the cute color block design, the material is not stretchy enough for yoga in my opinion. While some people may prefer the encased elastic band over the flat waistband, I find it less comfortable and digs into the skin. With that said, the legging creates a leggy look and shapes body curvatures well.
