Running in the cold is probably my least favorite thing in the world to do. I am the person that loves running on the treadmill when it’s cold outside, but I know that I need to be getting those miles in outside. Thankfully, there is a lot of amazing winter gear for running outside and today I share my favorites.
When it comes to running outside in the cold, I am the guy with as many layers as possible. I would rather have to take things off than freeze. Items that should be included in your winter gear is a good jacket, gloves, tights, warm socks and great shoes.
Jacket | Nike Shield $175
I love this because it’s lightweight, but will resist wind and water.
Maybe you need something a little warmer and thicker—this is the option for you. I love the three-panel hood with a visor for comfortable coverage.
Sweatshirt | Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Crew $90
Love this because it gives an extra layer, but is light, soft and warm.
Tights | Nike Pro Hyperwarm $42
These tights are great because the fabric is breathable, but keeps warm air close to your body while wicking sweat away.
Jogger Pants | Nike Tech Fleece Jogger Pants $100
What I love about a jogger pant is the bottom keeps the cold air out and they aren’t constricting.
Training Pants | Nike Dry $65
Maybe the tights and joggers are too warm for you; these are a good option to pair up with the tights. Keeping you warm, but also a looser fit.
Socks | Stance $12-16
A comfortable, warm and stylish sock are important when being outside—especially the stylish part. Stance will never disappoint. The hardest part is picking which socks to get because they’re all so great.
Shoes | Hoka One One Clifton 3 $130
If you’re going to be running outside, you should be using a shoe that was made specifically for outdoor running. These shoes will blow your mind.
Gloves | Greenlight Running Gloves $17-34
You want to have your hands covered when running in the cold Utah weather. These are some of my favorite gloves because of the tech-tipped fingers making it so you can touch you screen anytime.
Headband | North Face Ear Gear Headband $20
I’m not really a fan of wear a beanie while running, but my ears have to be covered. This headband is the perfect solution to keeping your ears and head warm during those cold runs.
