Our Analysis and Test Results
The ODODOS Dual Pocket is an excellent, versatile pair of pants. They are super breathable, making them an excellent choice for running on a hot day or hot yoga. We were super impressed by the price point.
The Dual Pocket is incredibly breathable pant. The fabric is a blend of 87% Polyester and 13% Spandex, which we found to be very lightweight. Even in hot yoga, we were not bothered by these pants, especially compared to the 90 Degree Reflex, which is a similar price point but has a much thicker fabric.
ODODOS claims that these pants help remove moisture from your body, which we love, but we were also curious about how long it takes these pants to dry. It turns out they dry very quickly, which is perfect after hot yoga practices or hot day time runs. However, because of the lightweight material, these are not the best option for keeping you warm in the wintertime.
Ease of Movement
ODODOS pants allow us to move and stretch in whatever way possible, and we loved the way this fabric felt on our legs. It provided a ton of compression, but not too much that we felt constricted in any way. We also appreciated how well they stayed in place during activities, particularly running. With the 90 Degree Reflex (the other dual pocket pant we tried), we could not have our phone in the pocket while running because our pants rode down so much. Because the waist of the pant is so high and the fabric is so lightweight, we were able to run easily with our phone in our pocket.
Comfort and Fit
Our only real issue is the way the elastic waistband fits, as it was constricting and created a small muffin top around our abdomen area. This aspect of the pants was not that enjoyable, but it was not a make or break for us during testing. We found that because of the tight nature of the waistband, it helped keep these pants in place while we were running.
The back of the pants is also very flattering since they are high-waisted. The seams on the back also do an incredible job of perfectly framing our booties.
We appreciated the choice of pockets, mainly because most women's pants do not have adequate pockets. There is one pocket on each hip, with a second pocket with a zipper. The zipper pocket proved to be a fantastic option for our phones while we went running; it never bounced off and stayed in place the whole time.
We've heard complaints that these pants are see-through. From what we gathered, these pants in black may be a little see-through, especially if they are a size too small. We tested the charcoal heather color and did not have any problems.
Through our months of testing, we hardly saw any wear. The seams stayed together; there was no pilling in between our leg, the fabric did not get ripped, and the waistband did not stretch out. For the price point, we are highly impressed with the durability.
For yoga pants at such a low price point, we try to manage our expectations. Especially after trying the 90 Degree Reflex, our expectations, to say bluntly, were low. ODODOS exceeded our expectations by a landslide. We loved how breathable they are, and they were perfect for any hot activity. They also proved to be very durable, especially for the price.
From the moment we tried ODODOS, we were impressed. They are incredibly breathable, making them perfect for yoga and running. The high waist helps make up for that flawed aspect of a potential muffin top, but not enough to beat the comfort of Amazon's Core 10. Regardless, we loved so many elements of this pant and recommend it as an excellent choice to anyone.
