Quality has nosedived
I have been a fan of echt for about a year since receiving the enforce hoodie, wash series crop top, and a pair of tapered joggers for my birthday near beginning of 2020. Since then the quality of the items seems to have really dropped, designs have gotten considerably uglier (pre 2020 I would have looked through the whole website and found everything aesthetically pleasing) and I don't stand alone on that fact from reviews on this page and Facebook.
Later this year, purchased two comfort sets: hoodies, crop shirts, and track pants. The mater...ial looks soft and breathable but really is incredibly itchy and cheap polyester that makes me sweat like a pig just from walking around (I am not fat). One of the trackpants also split in the back after I walked around in them at the shops for a few hours and I didn't even squat or do any crazy movements. They also used velcro for the pockets which I found really cheap when they could have easily put a zip or just kept it an open pocket design. The hoodie has thumb holes which I love but even for a petite person the arms were so short I couldn't actually use them bc of the strain it would put on my thumbs even tho I ordered my size. Finally, the material pills really easily after 1 or 2 washes. Returns were done pretty easily though as I filled out the returns form online. I got my money back in a few days which was a relief as I saw many bad reviews regarding their return process. Overall they are definitely not worth the hefty price tags they put on their clothes, I bought the comfort sets on sale and even then, for the cheap, lazy construction and fabric was almost not worth it. Definitely go with another activewear brand if you're wanting to pay the same price that this company charges.

I really can’t fault them
Echt is definitely worth buying on sale. I find their prices a bit high for what you get. Everything Ive ordered Fits correctly according to the size chart. The materials are fantastic and give me great support. I don’t find that they roll down (unless my weight/size changes). Shipping is unbelievably fast! I ordered on a Thursday and received my order on Friday 5pm!
I can honestly say that I’m happy with everything I’ve ordered. Because if this, I haven’t used their returns option so I can’t speak on that.
If you are on the fence, get a couple of things from the outlet. I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
The men's joggers are also not great, they're very restrictive with no flex and not comfortable at all. These were also on the expensive side for what you get. I would not recommend these to anyone not worth it.
First time buyer -very happy
I bought three items - the Arise Sportsbra V3, the Arise Leggings V3 and the Storm Lifestyle hoodie and I have to say I'm super impressed by the quality, fit and colour. I'm a longtime traditional sportswear brand person - mostly Nike, I keep seeing these guys pop up so I took my chances. I was super impressed. The quality for the price is exceptional - the hoody is really cool - I love the elastic in the hood so you can pull it up in a collar when cold. It's not too long, not too short. The leggings are super flattering and a perfect fit- lov...e it all. Not sure how there are bad reviews here as I'm pretty much blown away by the quick delivery (to Melbourne) and how good everything looks and feels. I just jumped online and bought another hoody in the blue. I'm 162cm and between a 10-12 - sizes are true to size - I got a medium in everything except the hoody I got an 'L' for a looser fit. So happy with it all!!
Scrunch tights tore after only a few wears
I bought two pairs of arise scrunch tights earlier this year, they fitted amazing, felt great and super comfortable. After less than 10 wears the scrunch seam in the bum split, mid-dead lift.
Very disappointed as I liked how they looked and felt - but definitely not squat proof or durable

Quality has dropped for sure.
Been ordering from ECHT since 2017, because its an Australian brand and stuff was really good quality. It was either this or stuff from doyoueven. I still have my joggers from 2017 and even though colour is fadded I still wear it. Anyways I ordered joggers late 2019 and i've noticed the quality dropped and recently in August I ordered another set of joggers and same thing. Im not happy with quality. I bought stuff from WISH.com and this could be comparable lol. all im saying is stuff feels cheap.
I wouldn't recommend them at all as they are terrible quality. Feels like really cheap material has been used. I only bought one item a pair of pink leggings during covid-19 stage 4 restrictions and the pants were see-through you can see my underpants. Looks tacky as. Then I had to pay $10 to send it back also the shipping was $10 as well to be sent to me so I spent $20 just to receive a product I have to return
I'm either stuck with a pair of leggings that are unwearable or sending it back at my own cost. All for a $40 pair of leggings which i...
Quick delivery and good quality
I've always had good experiences with Echt. Their leggings are good quality, fit true to size, don't fade and I love that they come in many bright colours. Super quick delivery; even during COVID my package was still delivered from Melbourne to Sydney the next day. Always good outlet specials too.
It depends on the product...
I’ve bought a few things from ECHT: some I love, others were very disappointing.
First of all I love the Arise range (Pure and Comfort) leggings and long sleeve crops - really comfortable, true to size and durable material.
The problems began with the Arise leggings with the holes in the back - worn once and began started getting runs through the material. The other problem was the Essentia range - the material is so Awful that I put my hand through it while pulling them up for the first time. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that the materi...
Great product but fabric isn’t great quality
I purchased a pair of echt black joggers in mid July.
washed well and
the fit was as described.
I was planning on buying another pair but the fabric around both pocket zips is very weak and when I used the pockets it ripped the fabric. I only wore them 3-4 times in that period and wasn’t rough with them. Bit of a disappointment considering the price.
Rabbit Race to get a hold of this company!!
Worst experience ever!! Bad service!!
I had been given a pair of echt leggings, loved them’ great material!
So I ordered Three pairs online. The only pair that had good quality material had black inc stains all over the front and the other two pairs were poor, cheap bad material (completely different to the other leggings)??
I Reached out to them and explained the issues and sent through photos, I explained I would rather sort the issue out asap over a phone call, I was told they have no access to phones and so it went continuously back and fo...
Quality Has Changed
At first i was hesitant to buy but after i tried I've been hooked to these leggings,the quality was good but lately i noticed the quality is not the same anymore specially if you buy from the Outlet .
I hope they maintained the same quality of the fabric just like before.
My new favorite!
I ordered an XS Echt Lifestyle Jogger which was a new arrival then. The delivery took a while than expected but it’s worth it. Absolutely in love with the quality of material and fitting! My new favorite!!
I bought scrunch and Enforce leggings and they are not functional. They fall down from the waist as soon as I start walking. I’m constantly having to pull them up. When I tried working out in them? Don’t even bother. It just restricts any movement because the pants can’t hold itself up. Enforce leggings holes became bigger in a matter of hours wearing them. Will never buy again - not even on sale.

DON'T BUY- BAD QUALITY! WASTE OF MONEY!
I bought one of their new track outfits with the joggers and sweater. It looks like good material and was sure expensive enough to where I thought it was, but I've only had it for no more than a month and there are multiple holes in it now. No, they are not too small, it's just bad material. Echt is just another company that advertises their apparel as good quality for a VERY big chunk of money, just to find out its cheap crap made in China. I paid $100 for it and now it's not wearable. At least if you're going to sell cheap slave made clothes, sell it for what it's actually worth.
A couple of items I purchased fell apart and when I contacted them they didn’t want to know unfortunately, so very disappointing. I think their customer service needs a major adjustment and they should look after their customers more and replace products when they fall apart.

they are ok
I purchased the booty scrunch arise leggings. They are a nice and thick material with good compression and a great thick waistband. I would have liked more leg length as I am 5"7 with long legs and they sit above my ankle. I purchased a size small and am usually an 8. They were a good fit.
The downside is I think their style of booty scrunch isn't as good as other brands. Its a very thick and obvious scrunch band and rubs really bad when doing sites. They aren't great enough for me to wear or purchase again.
Questions & Answers
Hey guys- does anyone have purpose leggings and do they slide down while working out? I run a lot and do high intensity activity. The forced scrunch leggings slide down sooo much and I can’t wear them for exercise so I don’t want to purchase more if they all do this. Thanks!
what about the sizing? Im usually a medium but with tights in australia they are very very tight should i go a size up?
