I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Just like every women needs a little black dress I believe every women needs a good pair of black work out pants. I use mine for lounging around the house just as much as for working out in. RaesWear is a patented line of hands-free clothing featuring a unique 360 degree waistband storage pocket. Their capris are comfy enough to wear everyday but sturdy enough to keep up with me while I am working out.
Designed with high quality, high performance fabrics in bold prints and solids, RaesWear is a simple but brilliant hands-free clothing line that help out busy, multi-tasking women enjoy an active lifestyle. While traveling on business, Leigh Cockram was at a loss as to where to store personal items safely and comfortably when running. Inspired to create a better solution, Leigh imagined a 360 degree waistband storage pocket with front and back openings for easy access. She spent the next two years designing the concept, testing fabrics and finally patenting the ultimate Hands-Free waistband pocket.
The pocket is open on one side but sealed on the other side. Just slide the items in several inches. The stretchy fabric keeps it tight against your body so there is no "jiggling." This pocket holds much more than just your phone. They are great for keys, IDs, money, credit cards, lip gloss, Epi-Pens, Inhalers, feminine products and more. I have used mine for weeks now and after washing them several times over they are still holding up great. I have worn them running, for yoga class and for hours sitting at my desk at home working. These are an XL and I am a bigger girl (16/18) and these honestly fit perfect. Tight enough they stay up while running but still super comfy.

Leigh's grandfather Raymond Maxwell Hite, Jr. or ?Grandpa Ray? joined the Army Air Corp during WWII at the age of 14. He served as a gunner on a B-26 Marauder flying 25 missions and shot down two German planes. At the age of 15, his age was discovered and he was given an honorable discharge and returned to the States. At 17, he joined the navy and at age 33 he died in a plane crash at White Sands, New Mexico, attempting to break the world's low altitude speed record in the F-4 Phantom during Operation Sageburner. The company is named in his honor. Raymond Maxwell Hite epitomized integrity and service, and it is the desire of RaesWear to carry on his legacy through superb product quality and customer service. RaesWear's mission is to pioneer a simple but brilliant hands-free clothing concept that will enable busy, multi-tasking women to safely and more comfortably enjoy an active lifestyle.
Raeswear was even the winner of Under Armour's 2015 Future Show Innovation Challenge. Their cute kangaroo logo suggests simple hidden pouches or pockets. I especially LOVE to wear mine at Disney World because I hate having to carry anything. I plan on wearing these to college Gator football games too. Stadiums have started to ban bags and these are an easy way to carry the essentials. These are fabulous for active moms and they quickly transform to comfy lounge-wear.
