Sierra Designs Tank ($64)
It’s easy to feel good in this sassy, airy tank because it’s constructed from a breathable, four-way-stretch poly-cotton-spandex blend and has a built-in, supportive bra.
Kari Traa Maria Jacket ($100)
Take a break from your hoodie with this crewneck bomber. It fends off the chill with its wind-blocking front, breathable back, deep pockets, and cozy, relaxed fit.
Suunto 9 Baro Fitness Watch ($599)
For data geeks, this training assistant offers the usual stats—distance, pace, heart rate—but also tracks post-exercise oxygen consumption, training progress, and sleep. Endurance athletes love the hyper-accurate GPS and 120-hour battery life.
Prana Momento Sports Bra ($59)
The Momento’s recycled nylon-Lycra fabric feels like brushed suede, for exquisite next-to-skin softness. Its interior shelf with reinforced cups and the ample racerback straps make it supportive enough for most gals.
Smartwool Merino Sport Skirt ($70)
This skirt provides just-right mid-thigh coverage, and the merino lining wicks away sweat, minimizing chafing. It also feels nice.
Brooks Caldera 3 Shoes ($140)
The 8.5-ounce, mid-cush Caldera is incredibly responsive, stable, and comfortable. The mesh upper and extra-grippy rubber sole make this lightweight runner surprisingly sure-footed on box jumps.
CycleOps H2 Smart Trainer ($1,200)
Rainy day? No problem. This direct-drive trainer is as close to riding outdoors as it gets. The precision-balanced flywheel in back can handle 2,000 watts of resistance and approximates inclines of up to 20 percent.
Balega Low-Cut Enduro V-Tech Socks ($13)
These socks offer extra support around the arch and compression that matches the contour of your foot. A proprietary moisture-managing fabric mixed with mohair provides supreme comfort.
Athleta Contender Mesh Crop Tights ($79)
The midweight Contender balances compression, breathability, and moisture-wicking capability.
