      THE DESIGNER'S PRINT INSPIRATION:

      This is where I love seeing Black Bears. In the wilderness - from a safe distance - left alone to roam and forage without feeling my presence. Sadly, I've been seeing too many Black Bears lately; there big black butts stuck in garbage bins or smelling their way along as they waddle down the middle of the street. One bear has already been put down in my neighborhood, due to carelessness from homeowners on my street, and now another has found his food source here and is likely to meet the same fate. This month I'd like to remind everyone to be mindful of bears in the area. Please keep a safe distance and keep your bins locked. Tell our governments you want more of Canada’s wild spaces protected." - keepcanadawild.ca <--- Visit the Keep Canada Wild website to sign the pledge. Bewildher will be donating $1 from every purchase of this print to the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

      FULL DETAILS

      A ton of love and care is put into every detail, from what you get to what you give back with each purchase. Read on for a full description of all the feel-good features.

      WHAT YOU GET

      • No-slip fit:¬†We designed a grippy elastic¬†for the inside waistband¬†that¬†prevents them from slipping while running, bending or jumping.
      • Squat proof:¬†Squat, bend and dance, we won't see your underpants.
      • Two¬†pockets: Conveniently placed at the side-waist, for keys and cards -¬†smaller phones will fit, too.
      • Flattering fit:¬†The 2-way stretch material smooth bumps and supports bouncing muscles - and we're told¬†it's butt-lifting, too!
      • Anti-camel toe:¬†Our unique crotch fit doesn't crowd your lady bits - a.k.a.¬†no camel toe.
      • H20 friendly: Our tights¬†won't get heavy when wet and¬†they dry really fast, so you can wear them for running, hot yoga, SUP, under your ski pants and more...

      WHAT YOU GIVE

      • Reduce waste: There are approximately¬†20¬†recycled plastic bottles in every pair, certified by the Global Recycling Standard.
      • Fair wages:¬†The¬†seamstresses who sew our products earn a fair wage.
      • Plant a Tree: We plant a tree in British Columbia for¬†every¬†order, in partnership with One Tree Planted.¬†A fully mature tree will sequester approximately 48lbs of CO2 per year!

      ABOUT THE FIT

      • HIGH-WAISTED:¬†These high-waisted leggings fit to the smallest part of the waist for a smooth and flattering fit¬†under a t-shirt or with a sports bra.
      • ANTI-CAMEL TOE:¬†The crotch area is designed to sit away from¬†your lady bits,¬†which helps to prevent camel toe¬†-¬†if you're a new mom you will love how these take the pressure off a sensitive area!
      • NO - SLIP FIT:¬†As a¬†2-way stretch¬†legging with an inner grippy elastic, these should¬†be put on like a pair of nylons¬†-¬†scrunch them down and slide them up, don't just pull from the top.¬†You want to feel the stretch going¬†around the leg, but not pulling down from the bottom.¬†When¬†put-on¬†correctly, the grippy elastic works wonders to keep them from slipping¬†when running, bending and jumping. Please note that in cold weather they may slip slightly so the trick is¬†to warm-up, reset and they'll stay-up!

      ABOUT THE FABRIC

      We've combined two fabrics for a more comfortable fit:

      The are made from...

      • Our ECO NO-SHOW¬†material.
      • 200gsm medium-weight¬†87% recycled polyester / 13% spandex.
      • Silky-smooth and has a matte-glossy look, like a pearl.
      • Long-lasting and¬†looks¬†new wash after wash.¬†
      • An all-natural anti-bacterial treatment made from seashells.
      • The¬†trifecta of technical must-haves;¬†anti-odor, wicking and¬†quick-dry.

          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 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.
