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.

These little tunic/dresses are terrific! I'm 5'7, 148 lbs. and I purchased the cobalt and gravel in size L. Though they are tight because of the spandex, I find that these tunics smoothed out lumps & bumps, plus I wear a cardigan w/ them. Looks really cute on and is the perfect length to wear w/ leggings! New lower price too! Highly recommend.

These pants have no stretch, so if you need any at all don't buy them. I like hard tail but since all their other stuff stretches insane I was thrown off by the fit of these pants, even though they specify they're rayon so I should've known. Also they're much too long for petite

The fabric is soft and comfortable. I’m short (5’1”) and have some extra pounds so this top works well around the mid section because it can be sort of ruched up.

Usually I need longer sleeves bc I have long thin arms and I’m tall. This top is super long armed and torso long so if you are a very tall lady such as 5’9 to probably 6’ or so if give this one a go. It’s very pretty and soft material but the cut just didn’t suit my figure.

I love this slightly odd, pricey top! The mineral wash is not quite black, somewhere between black and gunmetal gray. The fabric is stretchy and very comfortable. I wondered if the crew neck would be too high and tight but it’s perfect for me. The sleeves are somewhat tight but very comfortable and even flattering. The strange single offset side seam I guess is a style feature and not a mistake?! Can’t really even see it with the dark wash. The top is boxy but not too boxy, and does not look sloppy on me at all. I’m 5’10 and think its proportions could be problematic on a shorter body. The weight of the fabric is so perfect across the seasons and makes layering a dream. It’s my new favorite.

I needed something olive green so I kept it but this tee is a bit awkward. The body of the tee is very wide, the sleeves are tight and I would have preferred that the crew neck was cut slightly lower. It’s a little frumpy.

Hard Tail runs small/tight - definitely for peeps who are ok with showing their body. I look fine for my age but I left 23 in the rear mirror a long while ago, so I order a size up for comfort. This T is a great staple: quality fabric, lots of stretch, long/covers if you want/need it to. Would buy multiples in other colors if they were available. Very happy with this piece - happy that Hard Tail still makes a quality product.

I love this cardigan! Although I’d call it more of a jacket. It’s super soft and cozy. The shawl collar keeps your neck warm. I wish it had a way to keep it closed like a hidden snap or two. I may add snaps or a toggle clasp. I wear this to ride my bike and scooter so it would be even better if I could keep it from blowing open in the breeze. Washes well. True to size, slightly loose fit. I may order another color!

Ladies and gentlemen! This sweater is rock star awesome! They listed it under womens clothing which is really a disservice because a guy or girl can wear it! THINK MATRIX. Men look just as cool in them as we do! The sweater is super warm and wraps just right in all the right places. the sleeves are extra long and slouchy-perfect with sweats, jeans or leggings -add Combat boots and you are ready for your photo ROCKER

Love the size and fit..feel great wearing this..very fashionable. The Only issue. Which for me is not a deal breaker but could be for others is that the fabric sheds..if you are wearing something light underneath it..you will be unhappy..if you are wearing black or dark grey…it is perfect! I have a lot of back and dark Grey..but it should not shed..so for that reason only 3 stars..I would like to wear it with something light underneath sometime and cannot.

I bought three pairs of these pants in different colors by hard tail. This pair in red plum is my favorite so far. They are not bright red, but more burgundy. My husband said, he cannot get over how good I look in these pants.
