If it were up to Us, we would live in leggings. These athletic pants are soft and slimming at the same time! Bonus points for moisture-wicking properties, compression and high-waisted tummy control. But when we wear leggings on a walk, we never know where to store our stuff! We often end up lugging around a bag with our belongings. We’ve even tried hiding our keys in our socks, and let’s just say it was less than comfortable.
Finally, activewear brands have come up with a solution: pockets! Now we can fit our cell phone and credit cards into our leggings so we can be hands-free on a run (cardio or errands!). We rounded up the 11 best leggings with pockets with a focus on style and functionality. Problem solved!

Made from a Spandex blend, these bestselling leggings are super stretchy. One shopper gushed, “These leggings are the SOFTEST leggings I have ever worn…by a landslide!” Note: only select colors come with pockets.
2. This 2-Pack of Long Leggings With Tummy Control
These leggings have it all — a high-waisted cut for tummy control, long length, ample pocket space and squat-proof stretchy fabric. As one shopper declared, “These are the saving grace of all leggings.” Plus, it’s a two-for-one deal!
3. These Loungewear Leggings
A 2020 SELF Magazine Certified Award Winner, these Zella leggings are soft and sporty. The ribbed design resembles joggers, yet the form-fitting cut and shapely silhouette confirm that these pants are, indeed, leggings. No wonder 91% of the 691 reviews give these loungewear leggings five stars!
