The Infantry Pocket Leggings

This garment is offered on a made-to-order basis. Please allow for up to 3 weeks of lead time, but they usually ship much sooner!

By the late 16th century, the German city of Nuremberg was a known capital of armor production, where they specialized in high-quality infantry armors of simple but bold design. These armors were typically painted black to protect against corrosion, with contrasting bright steel bands. Infantry harness of this type was also typically of a "half-armor" style, with upper thigh protection but without greaves — which lends itself naturally to armor capris! ;)

Our capris feature two (COUNT'EM, TWO) pockets, one on each outer thigh, perfect for phones, keys, or a slim wallet, and snug enough for activity without bouncing contents.

Our model is 5'2 and wearing a size XS in standard rise, capri length.

85% Recycled Polyester, 15% Spandex
Moisture-wicking
UPF 50+ sun protection
Made in the USA

Our leggings are created with performance fibers derived from post-consumer plastics. Compared to making "virgin" polyester, these recycled yarns offset using new petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy in the process.
