The best leggings with pockets, to make your next run that much easier

These running leggings have space to carry your phone, so you can go hands-free on your next run.

Our phones are expensive and vital to our work and social lives, so to carry them when we’re out for a run isn’t just uncomfortable, it’s also slightly terrifying. 

But running without a playlist blasting or a podcast to keep us company just isn’t an option for many, especially seeing as music can actually enhance physical performance and even make exercise seem easier. 

Unfortunately though, the best answer to our problems also seems to be somewhat elusive: pockets. While women’s clothes are all too often devoid of pockets – cocktail dresses with key compartments, anyone? – it would seem that leggings with storage are potentially the greatest (and most straightforward) exercise invention in the world.
