Adidas Sport Eyewear Pacyr Sunglasses ($169)

Winter days may be shorter, but you still need a good pair of shades. We recommend the polarized Pacyr. The lightweight frames were resilient enough to survive when we accidentally sat on them.

Saucony Bonded Baffle Hybrid Jacket ($160)

A full-blown puffy is overkill on a run. This hybrid combines synthetic fill with Polartec fleece so you don’t overheat.

Salomon Bonatti Race Waterproof Rain Shell ($150)

Paper thin, the Bonatti keeps you dry without weighing much. It has no pockets, but reflective accents aid visibility in low light.
