These running pants are at home on and off the pavement. With a unique design and technical features, they are tailor-made to keep you at a comfortable temperature, even in frigid temps. This is key in a winter running pant, as many succumb to the pitfalls of overheating or not providing enough warmth — On's version strikes the perfect balance. Versatile pockets and zips keep the wind out and your valuables in. The secondary ankle-zippers and uniquely designed knee-mesh mean these pants allow for easy ventilation but also make it a snap to slide them off without taking off your shoes.

This lightweight breathable jacket is made with a technical blend incorporating Swiss sheep's wool — the result is a jacket that provides warmth but doesn’t stifle performance. The Insulator Jacket is ideal for cold winter running conditions, but can also flex into the shoulder seasons thanks to its lightweight breathability. You won't find insulation escaping from the outer stitching, either — no one likes feathers creating a breadcrumb trail behind them on their run. By only using interior stitch lines, the fleece padding is prevented from making a break for freedom through the outer layers. Plus, the reduced padding at the sleeves adds flexibility so you don't have to sacrifice mobility for warmth.
