Whether you’re getting a move on or just moving from the bedroom to the couch, joggers are a guy’s best friend.
Not to be confused with sweatpants, one of the best parts about joggers is their streamlined look: a loose lounge pant complete with a comfy elastic waistband at the top, that tapers and cinches at the ankle for a more tailored look. (Yes, sweats can be chic, too.)
Joggers can also be the best winter weather accessory, adding some much needed warmth to any outfit when stepping outside or curled up at home.
What are the best mens joggers?
There are many quality men’s joggers available, so it’s hard to pick just one. However, we do have a few favorites.
Like with many things, it comes down to what you’re looking for and your personal preferences.
The Nike Tech Fleece Jogger ($63) is lightweight and has a sleek design. In fact, Nike, known for the comfortable and athletic style, makes a variety of joggers worth checking out. We like them not only for working out but lounging around, running errands — you name it!
Another option is the Adidas Tiro 19 Training Pants (starting at $36), which works for casual and sporty occasions.
Under Armour man? Try the UA Rival Fleece Joggers. They’re durable, comfortable and made of a mid-weight cotton fleece blend, which you’ll probably really appreciate when the weather becomes chillier.
What brand has the best joggers?
Again, this all depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re interested in the best brand of joggers for running, we might say Nike or Under Armour. If you’re more interested in something for around the home or travel, we may suggest something from The Gap.
To help narrow your search, here are some of our favorite brands of joggers for men and what we like them for:
- Nike: This iconic brand is a good fit for in and out of the gym. They offer a variety of performance joggers, as well as joggers for casual occasions.
- Gymshark: Gymshark is all about activewear, so if you’re looking for running joggers or something to deadlift in, check them out.
- lululemon: For premium activewear that is built around performance, shop lululemon. Their joggers are not only stylish but use technical fabrics that offer anything from moisture-wicking fibers to hidden pockets for your gym card or car keys.

- Puma: You already know Puma makes solid athletic gear, but we also like wearing their joggers on rest days. They give that trendy athleisure look, while simultaneously offering comfort and functionality.
What is the difference between joggers and sweatpants?
Sweatpants and joggers may seem the same but they’re not! Here are some key difference in their style and fit.
- More tailored appearance
- Generally have a flexible waistband with a drawstring for customizable adjustment
- Have elastic cuffs at the ankle
- Made from a variety of materials, often with performance in mind. Think lightweight fiber and textile blends with features, such as waterproof, antibacterial and/or sun protectant
- Come with a variety of pocket styles, ranging from zippered to back pockets to hidden pockets
- Have a more relaxed fit, making them ideal for sleep or as loungewear
- Cuffs at ankle tend to be more relaxed in comparison to jogger cuffs
- Side pockets
- Made from soft and warm material, like fleece, cotton or a cotton blend.
Here are some of our top picks for men’s joggers, including some from bestselling brands like lululemon, Adidas, Cozy Earth, Abercrombie and more.
