    With highly breathable Polartech Alpha insulation in the front and back and a stretchy polyester weave that allows airflow throughout the sides, this is the ideal active layer for frigid days. $150,

    Brooks Pulse Lite Glove II

    Brooks makes warmer gloves, but we loved the breathable Pulse Lite ($25) for all but the coldest days on the trail. Reflective highlights up the viz at night, and the touchscreen-compatible pointer finger allows you to switch tunes without slowing down.

    Dakine Heather beanie

    This insulated acrylic hat is so comfortable that we wore it running, camping, skinning, and mountain biking. To maintain the handmade look, don’t throw it in the washing machine. $30,

    Helly Hansen Pace Half Zip Lifa Flow midlayer

    It feels too thin for winter, but its purpose is to keep you warm by keeping you dry: polyester mesh on the back panel and under the armpits pulls heat and sweat away from the skin. $70,

    Kahtoola NanoSpike

    Most running crampons are heavy, clunky, or both. At 7.5 ounces per pair, the NanoSpikes ($50) are the lightest we’ve tested. Low-profile tungsten-carbide studs bite into ice and snow but won’t gash your calf if you make a misstep.

    SmartWool PhD Run Tech tights

    Sure, they’re pricey, but the form-fitting comfort is worth it. The mix of merino wool, nylon, and stretchy spandex kept us toasty down to the teens. $125,

    Fits Pro Trail socks

    The cuff on the Pro Trail ($18) sock hits the low calf—high enough to keep out snow, but not so high that it feels bulky under tights. And with a wee bit of Lycra added to the merino wool and nylon weave, it stays put.

    Moving Comfort FineForm bra

    With a new uni-cup design and sexy straps, the FineForm ($50) lives up to its name: it’s more feminine and flattering than most active bras but still supportive enough for larger sizes and serious interval training.
