Level Six Sunseeker Leggings and Level Six Reversible Sunseeker Leggings:
Price: $60 CAD
Sizes: XS to XL
Colour: Regular: Navy, Juneberry, Silver Pine and Reversible: Kaleidoscope and Black Ripples
The Sunseeker leggings are made of quick-drying 82% Polyamide/18% Elastane material that feels like regular women's bathing suit material. The 24" inseam means that they end halfway down my shin on my 5'6" frame. The flatlock seams reduce chafing areas which keep the leggings looking new. The UPF 50+ sun protection means you can skip the sunscreen while wearing them!
There are a number of things to love about these leggings:
Fit- The leggings hug your legs well even after getting wet. They are not too loose or too tight around the waist and seem to snug all the right places. The leggings feel like you are wearing leggings made out of thick bathing suit material which feels great dry or wet!
Durability- After two seasons of use, I can barely tell they have been used. They seem to withstand the abuse of kayak outfitting, kneeling, sitting on rocks and docks, and all the bending I do in them.
Versatility- I seem to grab these leggings more and more. I started off just using them for paddling but then starting wearing them for more general purposes like swimming off a dock when the air temperature dips in August. I am also an open water swimmer and use them to swim in in September when the water temp drops but it's still too warm to wear a wetsuit. Lastly, I have seen others wear these leggings for pool lap swimming, and for SUP yoga.
Sun Protection- At UPF 50+, you can be assured that you won't get a sunburn while you are wearing them. With all the concerns over sunscreen in recent years, I have gravitated toward wearing clothing that will protect my skin rather than slathering on chemicals. I am happy to know that these leggings will protect me from the sun even when I recreate outdoors all day in the sun.
Kayaking- I really enjoy how well these leggings fit in a kayak cockpit. They are much more comfy than board shorts or neoprene garments. I love the fact that I don't care if I get them wet and they keep me warmer than a regular pair of fitness leggings.
Reversible- The reversible version of these leggings are fun as you can wear them multiple ways!
None! I can't think of one! Kudos to Level Six for making an awesome women's product.
