    DESIGNER'S INSPIRATION

    Bears are our forest friends but like... stranger friends, the kind you see during your daily routine and though you don't know each other, you give a knowing nod in passing. I also like to think of bears as forest celebrities. If I see one I get a bit star-struck, gazing from a respectful distance while hoping they don't see me staring. If I encounter one up close though I completely panic, fully aware they don't want their personal space invaded. "Oops... sorry! Don't worry, I'm not here to bother you!" and demonstrate they can believe me by slowly backing away.

    Let's all be bear aware and treat them like the friends-from-afar celebrities they are; it's okay to wear pictures of them on our clothes and hope to see one about town - but be aware that if you try to get too close, to take their picture or touch them, they have been known to, certainly can and just might maul you.

    Hey wild girl! We know you like taking risks, but - when ordering online - it is always a great idea to thoroughly read the product description. Ours is below ↓


    WHAT YOU GET

    • A no-slip fit: We've put a grippy elastic inside that sits on your hips where it won't pinch and keeps the tights from slipping.
    • Waistline friendly: We use a thinner, stretchier elastic at the top waistband that's both comfortable and prevents stretching out.
    • A conveniently placed pocket hidden in the waistband that's big enough for your phonekeys, cards, gels and cash!
    • Our high-waistband is in a lighter, stretchier compression material to be both flattering and comfortable - you won't feel like an encased sausage, we promise!
    • 4-way stretch compression fabric that smooth bumps and supports bouncing muscles (we also get told all the time they're butt lifting)
    • A unique crotch fit that doesn't crowd your lady bits; ie, no camel toe.
    • A gusset - that little triangle piece in the crotch - to provide a greater range of motion. Ours is lined with an anti-bacterial material.
    • Fabric that is H20 friendly! Our tights won't get heavy when wet and they dry really fast. Wear them for running, hot yoga, SUP, under your ski pants and more...

    WHAT YOU GIVE

    • There are approximately 20 recycled plastic bottles in every pair, certified by the Global Recycling Standard. 
    • We plant a tree in British Columbia for every order, in partnership with One Tree Planted. Fully matured that tree will sequester approximately 48lbs of CO2 per year!
    • In partnership with 1% For The Planet, 1% of every sale is donated to non-profit environmental initiatives.
    • Every purchase raises $1 to help a teenage girl attend wilderness camp, in partnership with Girl In The Wild.
    • The anti-bacterial fabric treatment is made from seashells recycled from the restaurant industry. 
    • Our graphics are transferred onto the material using recycled paper. 
    • Our printing process is called "cut panel sublimation" which means no dye is wasted, no harsh chemicals are used and the print will be in the same place on every pair.
    • The seamstresses who sew our products are paid fair wages.
    • All hang-tags are made from 100% recycled paper.
    • They will be shipped in a box that's 60% recycled - and looks nice so please reuse it!

    ABOUT THE FIT

    • HIGH-WAISTED: These high-waisted leggings fit to the smallest part of the waistline for a flattering fit on their own or under a fitted t-shirt.
    • ANTI-CAMEL TOE: We have a unique crotch fit that is designed to sit away from your lady bits, helping to prevent camel toe and take the pressure off a sometimes sensitive area - we got your back momma's!
    • NO - SLIP FIT: These are made from a 4-way stretch compression material and thus should be put on like a pair of nylons - scrunch them down and slide them up - rather than pulling from the top. The stretch should be going around the leg, but not pulling down. When pulled on correctly the internal grip elastic works wonders to keep them from slipping - a runners dream, no more hiking up mid-marathon! Please note in really cold dry weather - temperatures below zero - they may slip slightly until body heat is generated from activity. If this happens just reset after your warm-up and you'll be good the rest of your workout!

    OUR 'ECO-FEATHER' MATERIAL:

    • 200gsm mid-weight 79% recycled polyester / 21% spandex.

      CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Machine wash cold gentle cycle, tumble dry low or hang to dry. ***Important*** Please cold water soak before first wear to set the ink. Sweating in the leggings prior to soaking them in cold water could cause the ink to shift. Once the ink is set this will not occur. 

      PRODUCT LIMITATIONS: Due to the graphics being printed onto white material it is highly recommended this product only be worn with solid nude or light coloured undergarments. Darker, brighter and patterned undergarments may show through. The print is also a surface treatment, so it is best to avoid rubbing against hard and abrasive surfaces that could wear off the ink and damage the material - please avoid sliding down rock faces, continuous contact with velcro and crawling on knees.
