A brand I’d never expect is behind my favorite pair of leggings

I haven't traditionally been a huge leggings wearer, but a recent apartment move has me changing my tune.
While I was cleaning out and packing my closet, I unearthed a pair of never-worn a colleague from a previous job gave me to try that I just never got around to wearing. I have a lot of clothes, so this happens a little more frequently than I'd like to admit. And I am so sad that is the case, because these are seriously awesome leggings.
I didn't know what I was missing, but I do now, and I'm making up for lost time.
I ended up donating two big garbage bag's worth of clothes to the Salvation Army, but I kept the leggings. When I held them in my hands, deciding their fate, I realized how nice they felt and how simple and classic they looked.
This was no flimsy pair of leggings I could rip if I pulled them up too fast or aggressively (it's happened before); the polyester/spandex fabric had some weight to it, which signified to me that the quality was probably quite good. My assumption was confirmed when I tried them on. Without even glancing into the mirror to see how they looked, I knew they were a keeper. They were so comfortable!
The fit of Eddie Bauer's is the perfect amount of snug and very flattering — the leggings' description says they're Eddie Bauer's most athletic fit, "close to the body without restricting mobility." They have a contoured waistband with a special mesh lining that's supposed to flatten your midsection as well as side seams and a back yoke design that are meant to create slimming lines.
There's even a hidden waistband pocket that can fit my phone, credit card, and keys if I'm going out on a run in them.
I haven't worn them to workout in yet, but I ended up wearing them on my moving day, which was a workout of sorts. They're substantial enough to wear in public without feeling exposed, though I've mostly been wearing them around my apartment, changing into them after I get home from work. The leggings hold their shape after tons of wear, which isn't something I can say about other pairs I've owned.
Not wanting to keep these to myself, I checked to see if Eddie Bauer still sells them on their site, and they do. They normally retail for , but the company has them discounted to a pair. For that price, I might have to buy a couple backup pairs in case Eddie Bauer, for some reason, decides to discontinue them.
