One woman's glowing review for her trusty "fall fashion" item sent the Amazon product's reviews shooting through the roof. Although the sterling endorsement was originally posted in July 2020, it came to people's attention in 2021, after a screenshot of the rave review popped up on Twitter. "I think about this twice per week," Twitter user @emmycantread wrote, posting the screengrab that shows the Amazon customer's hilarious review for a pair of seemingly indestructible leggings. The tweet has been liked over 402.7k times and retweeted 38.5k times since being shared on November 6. But what's so special about this pair of leggings?
According to the happy customer named Cory H, the "RAYPOSE Women's Yoga Running Capris Leggings," are so good, they won't rip even if you roll down a mountain. "Can I just say that I will be reordering them in every color. Here is me rolling and sliding down a mountain because I was too scared to get up. My leggings did not rip not even a little bit and I got stuck on rocks and trees," she wrote in a 5-star review titled "Order them now." Cory's review has been voted helpful by nearly 18k Amazon customers since it was first posted.

Along with her review, Cory also shared two photos of herself rolling down the rock face while wearing a purple pair of the elastic pants which are described as "NON-SEE-THROUGH & 4-WAY STRETCH" on the site. Priced at $21.99 per pair, the product is currently available in four different styles. Cory's review seems to have had quite an influence on many as a number of buyers credited her with convincing them to buy the leggings. One woman even went as far as to stage a similar picture of her slipping down on a hill. "Mountain sliding legging lady was right! These Raypose leggings off Amazon are exactly as good as the lady in the reviews says," wrote Amazon customer Kimberly R. Kelly. "Glad I bought five!"
Meanwhile, on Twitter, @Jvallen1010 revealed that they too bought the leggings after coming across Cory's review. "I bought these leggings after seeing this review. They are amazing," they wrote. @JoeDoolittle also vowed to buy the leggings in every color available. "The pic with her lying there with her face in the rocks is what really sells these leggings for me. I'll be buying in every color as well," they wrote.

"I really hope the company gave her free leggings for life for that kind of solid endorsement. Because how can you not be sold when you read that," tweeted @heathermdoyle. "What a public service this review is. Not all heroes may wear capes, but most of them do wear leggings," proclaimed @Rae_209. "This is the greatest testimony for leggings I’ve ever seen. Can I please hang out with this person???" asked @hrmerm.
Some Twitter users also shared similarly unconventional customer reviews that really vouched for a product's quality. Here are some of our favorites:
