Gear pick of the week: Every Second Counts Speed leggings

British sportswear brand Every Second Counts launched in 2014 and they’re already making a name for themselves as one of the best sources to go to for stylish, functional fitness gear.

Their women’s Speed leggings are the perfect example of this. The moisture-wicking fabric keeps you comfortably dry during long sessions, and is thick enough to provide a flattering, supportive feel without making you overheat.

Mesh panels on the thighs and calves offer ventilation, plus the reflective detailing on the top panels will give your visibility a boost. With bright yellow ankle zips to add a flash of fun colour, and the overall design is chic yet practical. Our only bugbear is that the waistband could be a little higher to avoid mid-run readjustments, but that minor detail aside these are a fine addition to any runner’s wardrobe.

Every Second Counts Speed leggings are available in sizes XXS to XL, with yellow (£108) or pink detailing (£98)
