I love winter running. I am not a fan of heat and humidity, so I’d much rather run in all the layers than sweat through a 100* run. We haven’t had too many days so far this year to pull out the big guns, but since the topic for today’s Tuesdays on the Run is “cold weather gear”, I thought I’d share some that I expect to use yet this winter. I, of course, have some old favorites that I’ve written about before, but here are some new things that I’ve recently gotten.
Skirt Sports Toasty Collection
Skirt Sports recently came out with a “Toasty” collection. This collection has a variety of items for the cold weather runner. I have to admit that somehow I own them all. I know. My favorite so far is the Toasty tights. They have wind resistant panels in all the right places (AKA my rear – where I am always the coldest.) I’ve run in mine a few times and they are perfect when the weather is around freezing. Colder than that? Top them with the Toasty Cheeks skirt to keep those buns warm. (Right now you can get this combo for 15% off + free shipping over at Skirt Sports! (affiliate link)) I admit that I have yet to run in the skirt, but it makes an awesome cover for my tights when I’m walking the kiddo to school. Looking for a warm core? The Toasty vest is well-loved among the Skirt Sports ambassadors! In fact, when I put out a call for pictures, there was no shortage of vest pictures! Thanks to Deborah, Gisgie, Jacy, Cecilia, Jessi, Sam, Jennifer and Sandra for the awesome pictures!
Boco Pom Pom Beanie
Another favorite so far this year is the Boco Beanie. I happen to love the Skirt Sports pink one, but you can get a few other colors/options directly from Boco. This thing is so warm that it’s only been cold enough to wear it to run here once or twice. But on a cold day picking up the kid from school? Yes, please. (Isn’t Lisa adorable in it??? And of course, she has the vest on too…)
To round out my “new” items, I recently got sent a pair of gloves from Runlites to try out. They are warm and soft and perfect for some of the cold runs I’ve been on recently. So far, my night runs have all been too warm for them, so I’ll have to give my opinion on the lighting aspect later. But as a warm glove goes, these are perfect (when I can manage to steal them back from Shoo, that is.)
What new winter things have you found this year? Any updates on an oldy but a goody?
