Be Brave. Be Unboring. 

Kapow Meggings is a UK company started by two Aussie brothers, Ben and Jordan. Our products are designed in Australia and ship from London (for UK and Rest Of World orders) and Germany (for EU orders). We sell to customers in over 50 countries. 

Why Did You Start Kapow Meggings?

Because Life Isn’t Meant to be Boring! And Neither Are You. 

The idea for Kapow came at Burning Man back in 2009 way out in the Nevada Desert. All the guys were wearing women's leggings because they loved the bright colours and crazy prints, but they couldn't find any made for men. And when it came to compression leggings for fitness, they only came in plain black. So we designed the kind of leggings we wanted to wear. 

B-but Aren’t Leggings for Girls? 

Hell no, son! Human beings are built for self-expression. We’re here to give risk takers and rule breakers the conversation starters they were born for. We’re here to add some swagger to your street style and get all eyes on you, because that’s what happens in a pair of Kapows. You automatically become the most interesting person in the room. 

We Don’t Just Sell These Bad Boys. We Live Them!

We’ve been rocking meggings for years, and man, you wouldn’t believe where they can take you. Since we launched, we’ve seen men all over the world rocking Kapows for workouts, streetwear, festivals, yoga, wrestling, rock climbing, BASE jumping and anywhere else guys can look good and express themselves. 

High quality. Always.

We make high quality leggings with a focus on supreme comfort, killer colours and wild prints. We practice ethical production and rigorously test all of our products. We also plant a tree for every order placed, and use recycled and recyclable packaging.

The Kapow Mission

  1. To encourage creative expression and empower men to wear what they want.
  1. We champion standing out, not fitting in. 
  1. We’re committed to growing a community of guys who are confident in their own skin and who think stereotypes aren’t defined by what you wear. 
  1. Having fun and not taking life too seriously. Life is short. Let’s have a good time. 
  1. Absolutely everything revolves around our customers. We love you guys and will bend over backwards to make sure your Kapow experience is a good one. 

Why Do You Call Them “Meggings”? 

Meggings = men's leggings. Depending where you are in the world, they’re also called tights, leggings, meggs, or wonderoos. (Okay, we made that last one up). We call them meggings because Kapows are designed especially for men with extra width and length and more room in front. At the end of the day we encourage our customers to wear whatever makes them comfortable, so call ‘em what you like! Our aim is to bring a little bit of fun and confidence into the world. It also makes it easier for people to find us online. (Srsly, have you ever tried searching for "leggings" in Google? Good luck, brother).
