Hard Tail

Hard Tail Logo
Hard Tail® believes that real progress goes hand-in-hand with the empowerment of women everywhere.

Twenty-five years ago, founders Dick and Patty Cantrell, launched Hard Tail®, a pioneering lifestyle and active-wear line celebrating female athleticism.

At its core: a girls-can-do-anything philosophy, inspired by the couple's three daughters. Their vision was not only to create an innovative brand rooted in relaxed California living, but also one that would motivate young women to defy stereotypes, break barriers, and achieve their dreams.

Found in a variation of fun tie-dye color schemes and patterns, yoga pants, dresses, tanks and even bras saturate the line for an iconic workout identity.

With unshakeable patriotism and unforgettable style, you’ll love the way you look and feel all workout long. Proudly made in the USA, Hard Tail® offers a lightweight and easy transition from pre- to post-work out looks. Created from a signature cotton and Lycra® blend that promotes soft and comfortable wear, the Fold-Over Flare Pant, the brand’s best seller, among many other styles, makes it a must-have for hot yoga outfits.

What started as a small company working out of the Cantrell's Los Angeles home in 1992 has evolved into an internationally-renowned, family-owned and operated business, recognized as much for its focus on California manufacturing and classic designs. Hard Tail® is committed to strong females everywhere.

I liked that this was different but the hood is huge and the sweatshirt runs small.

Seriously love these!! I’m a huge bell bottom fan & i have over 50 pars (I know I have a problem). These are extremely comfortable, stretchy, & the flat waist band is so flattering. There’s no digging into my stomach. Waistband is just like a yoga waistband. They are really stretchy but I would say they run a bit small. There’s a ton of stretch so for a tight fit go with your regular size, for an average fit, size up. I’m a 12 & I went with the xl. I also have athletic thighs. They fit perfectly.

I absolutely love these. I hesitated buying them for a while because of price, but OMG…best and most comfy shorts. I am 5’7 125 and bought small. Loved them so much I bought the other pattern even though they didn’t have my size-got medium in the gray pair. Little baggier. The waist band is maybe what does it for me! Super comfortable.

Not for me. I am usually a size 6, I've worn Hard Tail skirts in size M. The waist in this pair of pants is so so snug and just completely unbecoming on me. They look ridiculous on me. I look like the Goodyear blimp and I am thin!

I really like these pants. It is nice to find an organic cotton capri legging that holds shape, doesn't bag out in the knees or butt, and isn't see-through when bending over. I wear them to work out, do pilates, run errands, you name it. I have washed them about a dozen times (wash on cold, dry on high(don't judge, I dry EVERYTHING on high because I am lazy) and they have not faded or pilled.

So disappointed, these capris are lovely and comfortable but also completely see-through. Sending them back but would love to see this design in something less transparent.

I still gave this 5 stars but be warned. They're super long, and youl'll need to hem. I'm 5 ft 9 inches and they're 3 inches too long on me, so i'm getting them hemmed. Also I wear an xs in everything, because I'm 115 lbs, so I'm pretty thin. These pants were pretty darn tight, so I wish I bought a size small instead, which has never happened to me lol. But I'm still hemming and wearing them, they would look better a size up though.

Got these in cloud wash #1. Cool colors and pattern, soft, not thin and not thick, sexy. The waist is a little too high but you could roll it down. With Hard Tail I have to order one size up so I got the Large (I'm usually a M). I like them so much I just ordered the black ones too :)

I had bought two of these biker shorts several months ago and they fit perfect and the material was light weight. So I thought I’d go ahead and order two more pair since I liked him so much well I received these two pair the waist was almost 2 inches smaller and they were almost 2 inches shorter with heavier fabric. What a disappointment!

I love these so much - I wish they had more colors. They are comfortable, the perfect rise, perfect length. They are slightly thicker than some sweats so they seem more sturdy - don't get too baggy in the knees. They're fashionable and comfortable. I'm 5' 7" and 140lbs - I got a medium and they're perfect. I have long legs and I love the length of these on me. They're surely my favorite sweats I own.
