I’ve been running a lot in cold weather lately, and I thought I would share my recommendations for cold weather running attire. I’ve ordered and returned a fair number of shirts and tights and the like, but I’ve also found some stuff I really like.
Unless otherwise noted, I take a medium in everything. I am 5’6, 125 lb and am not what you’d call curvy.
Shirts. This is the easiest category. I have a fair number of long-sleeve running shirts I really like. Here are my three favorites:
Wallaroo 170 – 100% wool and superlight and warm. I love this shirt!
Sugoi Fusion Core I really like the zip pocket at the back of this one. This is a bit heavier-weight than the other two options.
Oiselle Flyte This one is thin and light and I love the birds.
Tights. For weather under 40 degrees, I have two pairs of tights, but one pair is no longer sold. That leaves my Sugoi Mid-Zero tights. Love them!
Rain Jacket. This is an essential in Seattle, obviously.
I love my Patagonia Light Flyer jacket. Unfortunately, it’s been discontinued. It’s super lightweight, Gore-tex, and I got a great deal on ebay.
Gloves. Love these Saucony gloves. Not only are they comfortable, they are also very cute. I have long fingers, and the Large fit me perfectly.
Socks. Balega all the way. Pricey, but I love them.
