Jogging pants and sweatpants are both pant styles designed for comfort and efficiency.
They are usually loose (though some styles can be tighter) and taper to a bouncy ankle. These two styles are not to be confused with "sweatpants," which are typically longer, lighter and loose around the ankles.
Classic sweatpants have shades of gray, but you might also find some black or navy. Joggers may come in more colors and have additional design details, such as stripes on the outside of their legs.
The main difference between the two is the weight of the material. Joggers are usually made of thin, lightweight material that makes it easier for your legs to "breathe."
Sweatpants, as their name suggests, are designed to be thicker and warmer than jogging pants. Overweight sweatpants are perfect for cold climates. Wearing them during exercise can also increase the amount of sweat that comes with many health benefits.
