Yoga Pants (cotton/black)

I gave these pants **** 4 out of 5 stars

Ok so I love a good pair of yoga pants, which to me means they are both comfortable and functional. This pair does amazing on the comfort section and not so wellfor functionality durring actual yoga. First of all these are very well made pants but I normally wear a medium at the biggest and got a large which are kind of tight, so I recommend ordering 2 sizes up. The stitching is strong and they are made with nice soft quality fabric. They seem like they will last a long time and I  have worn them probably 4 days since they arrived. Now I say they don't function as yoga pants because of the design.  They are fine for beginner yoga sun stations, downward dog, childs pose etc., however since the crotch area hangs so low it makes some of the more advanced poses a little bit difficult. One example is tree pose with a crotch this low you can't bring your heel to your actual groin area because when you extend your leg like that the fabric pulls tight creating a barrier. This is the only issue I have had though and it isn't that big of a deal. I only mention it because it is the reason I left 4 stars instead of 5.

Hydration Bladder by Campleader (Black)

I gave this product ***** put of 5 stars

Get Your Own Hydration Bag Here

I love the idea of just the hydration bladder and not having to buy the whole backpack. This one is great too.
This pack is a nice thick plastic with push on hose mouth piece and even a lock for the mouth piece. This is perfect for anyone that wants one of those expensive ones but can't swing the price. I used it for hiking inside my regular backpack. Just filled it up and put it in the smaller front pocket so it stayed in place then zipped it up with the hose sticking out. The hose is nice and long plenty of slack and covered in neoprean sleeve so it can be brought up over your shoulder and have plenty of hose left. You might want to tuck it under the strap or through the handle (if you have one) so that it stays in front for easy access.
I will be using this all the time and it's perfect for anyone that hikes walks bikes or does anything that requires easy to grab hydration.
