When the weather gets cold, don't cower indoors. Get out and run.
There's something magical about running outside in the winter. Maybe it's the additional pain — the pride of running through the stinging cold while everyone else cowers indoors. Or maybe it's the stillness and crisp air, the quiet mornings. Whatever the cause, it's unquestionably true; running in the winter is magic. But it requires the proper gear to stay comfortable. Luckily, lululemon has everything you need to stay comfortable when putting in the miles when the weather turns. See below for a selection of its gear perfect for winter running.
Any good winter running kit starts with a base, and the Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve 2.0 is just that. It features a seamless construction to avoid chafing, is breathable and is built with anti-stink technology, so you never have to worry about scaring off your partner when you return home from a workout.
With its linerless construction, the Pace Breaker Short 7" is perfect for layering on top of a pair of tights when the weather hits sub-freezing temps. It's got four-way stretch to allow for plenty of movement, and also comes in a version with a liner (if that's more your speed). It's basically the perfect multi-sport short.
The ideal top layer for winter running comes with a warm, sweat-wicking fabric, four-way stretch, reflective details and zippered pockets. if you haven't guessed it yet, we're talking about lululemon's Surge Warm Full Zip. Throw it on over a Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve 2.0 and you're good to go.
For extra cold days, add a vest up top. the Down For It All Vest from lululemon is not only warm, but it's also water-repellent, wind-proof and stretchy. The combination of 700-fill-power goose down and Primaloft insulation will keep you warm no matter what. The Primaloft is used in areas most prone to getting wet, since it will keep you warm even if it gets wet. Top it all off with reflective details, a hidden phone sleeve and zippered pockets and you'd be hard-pressed to find a better winter running vest.
For days when it's extra cold, opt for a full-length jogger. The Surge Jogger from lululemon is lightweight without sacrificing on warmth. It's got zips at the cuff for quick on and off, is built with a sweat-wicking, four-way stretch fabric, is quick-drying and is topped off with a secure zipperless back pocket for essentials.
