Theoretically nice, practically not so much
Really nice designs and most extremely flattering to most shapes. However, 4 pairs of my tights have ladders around the bum and thigh area, not because of incorrect size, simply from the poor material and poor stitching. Another pair is pilling. Just be careful what material you buy and get them on sale. Avoid the Arise material and go more for the material of the typical leggings of higher spandex percentage. :)
Okay products but very poor returns policy
The leggings I bought are reasonable, but I don't think that they would be worth it if they weren't on sale. Unfortunately their returns policies are really poor for such a large company. Orders can't be changed or cancelled once made, even if you want to do so immediately. Buyer is responsible for return shipping and anything that was bought on sale can only be exchanged or returned for store credit. When compared to other sites that I'd usually buy clothes from (ASOS, the Iconic, Twotags) these return policies are really ordinary. Once I use my store credit I won't be buying anything else from Echt.
Like a Second Skin Love This Brand!
This brand gets some horror reviews and that's why I wanted to honestly review my 4 Echt purchases. 3 pairs of pants and 1 crop top. All fit as specified in the online measurements. Fabric is just gorgeous, as a group fitness instructor I am always getting comments on my clothes. The stitching holds well wash after wash and the postage is always super fast. No complaints here. Can't wait to order again!
There's pro's and con's
Pro's... they look great, I'm not skinny or fit by any means, but they do look amazing and the fit is great.
Con's... They aren't great quality, it's the stitching, easy pulls apart, also not the best fabrics for fitness, good for walking, even jogging but not great for gym work.

All of my activewear is Echt! Best workout wear!
I absolutely love my Arise Leggings and Sports Bra. Its always the first outfit I pull out of my draw for gym. They have been great for all of my activities eg running, Body Attack, Barre, Reformer Pilates. They hold everything in and make me feel great! Sizing is true to size for me. I am a small and I am a short curvy lady and have had no issues.
Poor quality expensive gears
Expensive but poor quality. Not suitable for running or pilates. Extremely itchy stitching. Very overpriced for its quality and also it falls down even it is your proper size. I do not recommend. Please go buy sports gear from specialised brands.
Best workout wear!
I purchased 4 different leggings, 4 different designs and 4 different materials and all I found was amazing!!! I have a pair for running which are perfect. A pair for low impact, a pair for leisure and a pair for weight training that doesn’t slide when you do squats lol. Love em all and will continue buying all my leggings from them!!

Do not respond to customers
My parcel was sent to aus post’s lost and found due to poor packaging (item hanging out). I have tried to contact the company many times and they have not responded ones. So disappointing.
Waste of money
Those lovely holes look pretty and stylish, till you start and they ladder up your leg and bum! Does it after the first wear and gets worse each time. I've thrown all mine out and will never waste money on their stuff again.
Excellent Customer Service
Received my order within days, didn't like the quality but didn't realise I had to pay for returns, I contacted them and was sent a returns label as a gesture of goodwill. Hopefully my refund will be as swift
Terrible quality buyer beware
Arise scrunch shorts. Hardly worn. The back seen ripped open when getting out of the car. I’ve seen lots of complaints about this happening on face book. Terrible quality
dont do it !
have 3 pairs of their fitted tracky pants as l loved the look but the stitching is coming apart on all 3 and definitely not worth the price
Gymshark would never.
I have a few ECHT shorts - purchased some scrunch and the non-scrunch because of the colours. I like the fit but the waistband is horrible quality. It doesn't stay at your waist, it always rolls down whenever I'm doing a squat or basically bending over.
I definitely prefer Gymshark quality over ECHT. At least I know Gymshark is more consistent with quality.
Fast and easy returns
Received a pair of leggings that I didn't quite like. I requested to have them swapped to a different style. Fast return's. I was notified when they had processed the returns. Best returns service I have ever had to deal with. Would recommend this brand to anyone.
I love the brand
I have on pair of scrunch bum (feels like a wedgie but doesn’t bother me too much). I have a pair of the joggers, set from the arise range, arise comfort (size up in this range), arise key (size up in this too), cropped jacket, a few other non scrunch leggins, my favourite is the echt active (so comfortable). Sometimes the color is a little off & the sizing can be off, the lighter color leggins are see through so make sure you have seamless or no underwear. Other than that I have bought a lot & quite love the brand so far.
Echt - leggings are a failure with their waistband
3 leggings with them and not happy at all..
All 3 were of different model and except for one which had a drawstring and hence helped to stay in place, the rest 2 never hugged my waist, was slipping all the time even while walking. The sizing is perfect for legs but the waistband (which needs to be tight) is an epic failure. Not buying anymore Echt.
Echt Force Scrunch Bum
These tights look the part and fit great, I am a size 8 so a Small is a great fit with room to move. The scrunch bum however, not engineered for an actual workout or squatting. I have been through three pairs of these where the scrunch bum has snapped within just a few wears each. I am not overweight and I am not buying too small by any means; in my opinion and because of my personal experiences, not once but three times, I just don't believe they were made for a strenuous activities or a weights session. I think they would be great if you are ...doing light, non strenuous, everyday walking or a light stroll but certainly have not stood the test of actual workouts which is truly disappointing. It has steered me to another brand which I have found to be stronger and much more practical activewear. I hope this helps someone who is looking at purchasing so you have a real understanding of the product and its capability.

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!
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!!
Questions & Answers
Has anyone found a dupe for the echt scrunch bum shorts?
I was wondering which of country are their clothes made in?
Australia I believe.
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!
