Top 10 Best Work Out Pants
for January 2023

Work pants are an essential item for running, hiking, biking, or playing sports. In fact, pants are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own. While work pants are traditionally designed for work, they're also great for everyday wear.

In the Different Guide , we test work pants for performance, durability, and fit. We evaluate performance factors like how long a pair lasts, how comfortable they are to wear, and how breathable they are. We also evaluate durability factors like how much wear and tear they can withstand, how strong their stitching is, and how long-lasting their materials are.

Our top picks for the best work pants are based on testing thousands of pairs of pants over the years. Our top picks are pants that are comfortable, durable, and perform well. Here are the best work pants of 2022:
