be present Yoga Pant Review and Giveaway!


I had the great opportunity to try these great yoga pants from be present. Courtney from be present was kind enough to send me their most popular Agility Pant with a backslit. At first glance I thought these pants resembled hospital scrubs, and I was fine with that since I equate that to comfort. I really like workout pants that include a drawstring (these do), because I have issues with having bigger legs and a smaller waist. I can adjust these pants so that this won’t be a problem.
This distinctive be present pant has become a yoga industry standard. The Agility Pant is made of lightweight Breathe Weave™ fabric which wicks sweat from the body and dries quickly. The pant sits on the hips and has back slits, an adjustable drawstring waist, darted knees and patch pockets.
These pants have just the right amount of stretch so they are not too tight or too loose and I love the back slit. When getting into a downward dog or even a child’s pose these pants let your lower leg and calf area “breathe” in a sense. No conformity with these pants! I love all technical fitness gear that include wicking material. I sweat during yoga and pilates, not just cardio. I love that the sweat won’t stay on my body even during these non-impact activities.

ABOUT THE COMPANY:
be original:be present, a clothing line carried in yoga studios, boutiques, spas and resorts throughout the United States and the World, incorporates the yoga philosophy into the design. be present began as clothing for yogis and yoga instructors, and evolved into a company rooted in the experience of yoga, but designed for those who value versatile, simple, comfortable clothing. Yoga is a centuries old eastern philosophy with contemporary devotees, and yoga clothing needed a modern look that embraced and respected the philosophy without being commercial. Our pants are designed to weather the street as much as they are designed to hit the mat. In the years since the first be present pant was introduced, our line has set the industry standard for versatile, agile and mobile yoga pants. be present has consistently been on the forefront of creativity and originality in the yoga world. As the line evolves into a company rooted in the yogic lifestyle but accessible to anyone who values high quality, fashionable and active clothing, we will continue to be a leader in innovative designs.
I really like the fact that I can leave a yoga class and not feel that I have to change my pants if I need to run errands on the way home. Or I can just decide to skip yoga class altogether and wear these pants just because they are so comfy. These pants will be getting a lot of use from me in and out of the yoga studio.
We are a grassroots and family owned company infused with the spirit of yoga. The story begins in early 2002, when Amy Lopatin Dobrin started be present. She was inspired to create a line of clothing that was stylish and vibrant, and coming from an athletic tradition that included years of practicing yoga, she saw the need for yoga apparel that wicked, dried quickly, and most importantly, looked good. After spending years in the mountains of Colorado, Amy saw how advanced ski apparel had become with wicking fabrics, quick drying layers and breathable jackets. Although skiing and yoga are entirely different practices, she brought the technically advanced aspect of ski apparel to yoga. Introduced in the first public line, Breathe WeaveTM, is a wicking, breathable, versatile fabric that is exclusive to be present.
We are a small family owned business that values close relationships with clients, environmentally friendly practices and doing the right thing. Every item of clothing is proudly made in the USA. We like to think of ourselves as a family of creative spirits who love yoga, love clothing and love to have a good time. We wear be present clothes to yoga, to travel, to hike and to have fun. The be present line is constantly growing, and Amy continues to develop products that we are excited to share.
Courtney was kind enough to giveaway The Agility Pant to one lucky winner!
