Winter Running


1. ASICS Plaid Beanie
Warm, fleece-lined acrylic with a touch of style. $22;

2. Nike Distance Microfiber Half-Zip Jacket
Reflective touches, a big rear heat vent, and supple, swish-free polyester fabric make this lightweight windshell an easy go-to. $60;

3. Princeton Tec Fuel
All the light we needed (43 lumens) for night road running at half the price of fancier models. $27;

4. Adidas Supernova Brushed Tights
Thinner stretch panels in key spots allow for fluid movement, and the fleece-backed fabric is softer and warmer than standard leggings. $70;

5. The North Face Trajectory Hybrid Jacket
The closest a storm shell has come to working for sweaty runners: The most exposed panels are waterproof; the rest is cut from a stretchy, breathable material that dumps heat quickly. $179;

6. 180s Men's Convertible Running Glove-Mitt
These lightweight gloves turn into water-resistant mitts for colder days—and a silver touch pad on the fingertip lets you adjust your iPod (most of the time) without de-gloving. $25;

7. New Balance Wind Brief 2.0
The good: blocks frost-nipping winds. The bad: could have a more supportive fit. $30;

8. Nathan Thermal QuickDraw
The flip-top nozzle resists icing, and a neoprene sleeve keeps your water from getting brain-seizingly frigid. A bit of reflective trim ups your visibility. Tip: On subfreezing days, start with warm water. $28;
