Sweatpants are the new dress pants. At least, that’s the case for a whole load of people who have been working from home through the past nine or so months. We mean, why bother with uncomfortable pants you’ll have to hold up with a belt when you can look perfectly presentable on Zoom even with the comfiest pants covering your bottoms? Yeah, it’s time to bust out the sweatpants. And if you’re wearing sweatpants so much, your closet is running out of them, maybe it’s time to beef it up with a few new choice pieces, just like these Proof Tech Sweats.
Yes, it’s another pair of technical sweatpants for lounging around in the comfort of your home. Unlike other similar trousers we’ve seen, though, this one throws in the unique ability to maintain a level temperature in the air between your skin and the fabric, so it doesn’t matter whether it’s hot or cold in your house – your legs will be enjoying the same temperature the whole time you’re wearing these pants.
The Proof Tech Sweats are made from a yarn called 37.5, a technical fiber that’s been specially-designed to maintain your body’s core temperature by managing the relative humidity under the pants and actively maintaining a temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius. That’s right, it keeps your legs at the same temperatures, regardless of whether it’s the middle of the summer or the height of winter. How does it do it? We don’t know, since they’re using a blend of polyester, rayon, and spandex, all of which seem to be pretty common fibers, so we wouldn’t be surprised if they used some magic potions coupled with some ancient forbidden spells like they do in Harry Potter. Or something.
Aside from the regulating warmth on the lower part of your body, the pants’ material comes with four-way stretch, so you can wear it while doing stretches in the morning, running around the kitchen making lunch, or hunkering down at your desk in the basement to get some work done. And yes, it will regulate your body temperature, so it stays level through all those activities.
The Proof Tech Sweats come with a tapered fit, so it creates a much-better looking silhouette than the typical shapeless sweatpants you get from the bargain rack, although it does provide plenty of room in the hips and thighs, making it suitable for wearing even when you’re working out. It gets all the usual niceties that come with regular sweatpants, by the way, like an elastic waistband that allows it to fit snugly without needing a belt, along with an adjustable drawstring, in case you want to secure it a little more tightly, since… you know… being a pair of magical pants, it can also succumb to nefarious magic out there. Seriously, the darn thing could fall off and expose your boxers. Or something. Other features include side seam hand pockets, a zippered rear pocket, and cuffed ankles.
The Proof Tech Sweats are available now, priced at $88.
