Vim Pants


Color: Obsidian
5 in stock

Track workout or no, everybody needs a pair of swishy pants. But not just any swish... ones made from our best-selling Vim-Vigor fabric that is both windproof and water resistant. We designed these to be wear-on-their-own pants, or wear-over-whatever pants. The fit, relaxed. The waist, gathered but not tight. Pockets, of course. Zips at the ankle, yessss. Because sometimes you need to go pants off without going shoes off. Or sometimes you just want to pop your zip for a look that says 'I already did something today.' For the ultimate track star combo, combine these pants with any Vim-Vigor styles or the new short sleeved Run Poncho. Swish swish.


• Ankle zip
• Interior drawcord
• Oiselle logo detail at ankle
• 2 zip hand pockets
• 28.5" inseam (all sizes)


• Water resistant outer shell

Kept me warm and dry!

Loved these pants! I bought them for my trip to Iceland and I wore them with a pair of leggings underneath and it was perfect. We went behind a waterfall and it kept the mist off and I was completely dry! A perfect wind layer and I would 100% recommend these pants for the outdoor elements!

Underrated & amazing

I miss the swishy soccer pants of the early 2000s - they are the perfect wind block layer to keep you warm without weight and easy to take on and off before a race. For some reason no one wants to make them anymore (at least not in women’s) so I was very excited to see these. Already in love with Vim jacket, the pants were easy sell. The material is so thin but it keeps you so warm! If it’s around freezing or below, they are perfect over tights. Above that over shorts is great. I’m usually L/10/12 in Oiselle & got L. They L are big but since I layer them over stuff I wouldn’t size down. My main problem is they are long and I am short, but the elastic cuffs keep them up. Love the zipper cuffs and zippered pockets. Such a great layer bc if u take them off they are super light & easy to pack away. Haven’t run in them - lots of hikes & dog walks & perfect race warmup pant, but I think next super cold windy day will see how they do. There’s so much wind proof tech in tops and not in tights. Very hard to find bottoms with the wind proof panels & usually they’re just on the front of the pants & my butt is still cold. Think these pants are the answer.

Nice pants!

These pants are super comfortable! They are lightweight and can easily be worn over shorts or whatever or just worn as regular pants. They are lightweight and I love that they zip at the ankle. This makes it so much easier to pull them on & off over your shoes, if needed. I wear these while hiking. They keep the cool breeze off my legs but are not too hot. I'm very happy with these pants!

stylish, comfy, & lightweight

I bought a pair right before my hiking trip with my college friends in late October and wore them the whole day with my Oiselle tights underneath. Super comfy and stylish, and it didn't feel tight with all the layers. The material is smooth and very lightweight, so it was easy to pack it in my carry-on. I love the draw cord inside to tighten it as I please. It kept me warm, dry, and clean even in the rain since it's water resistant, so it was perfect. I am on the shorter side and usually go for size 2-4 for Oiselle products, so I went for XS for this, and it was just right.
