Product Summary

Made with Powervita soft fabric, the Athleta Ultra High Rise Elation Tight feels like a second skin. Sitting high at the natural waist allows for these leggings to have a huge back pocket for storage and three length options help you get the best fit. With SPF 50+ protection and breathable moisture wicking material, these leggings have you covered through the hottest of outdoor workouts. 

Reviews mention easy pilling, especially in the thigh area, as well as the fabric being a magnet for any kind of lint or dust you come in contact with throughout the day. At the mid-range price point for leggings, these might be worth a try for serious yoga fanatics.
