Even if spring’s on its way wherever you live, or you’re on the tail end of a lovely long summer, chances are the air is crisp on your very early morning run or outdoor sunrise exercise session. Which also means it’s likely you’re layering up before you head out the door!
Training outdoors is uninviting enough when it’s chilly, without the added hassle of considering the ideal attire, or doing majority of your run after you’ve warmed up with your chunky jumper tied around your waist.
We’ve rounded up our favourite trans-seasonal pieces to accommodate for temperamental weather and yo-yo temperatures.
Vests are the perfect compromise for unpredictable conditions as they keep heat in your chest but leave your arms exposed to regulate your temperature. Nike’s latest training vest takes this functionality to new heights, being specifically engineered for working out in cooler weather. Its unique thermal fabric with a water-repellent finish works to trap heat while keeping you dry, as we all know a little rainfall wont stop a workout. Plus, they’ve included oversized zippered pockets that provide secure storage when closed and act as vents when left open.
A full length tight that can be worn both out and indoors is difficult to find so we were pretty pleased to stumble across Nimble’s new range of breathable long tights. Made from Nimble’s signature lightweight compression fabric, their tights are both moisture wicking and quick dry making them perfect for outdoor activity. Our pick is the Amelia long tights, which contain side mesh panels to allow extra ventilation while keeping you warm from hip to ankle.
You’ll be pounding the pavement in no time in Adidas’s long sleeve running tee. Made from lightweight fabric that hugs the body, the Tech Fit tee will keep your body toasty, dry and sweat-free. With half mesh sleeves and a centre zip for heat regulation, this is the ideal running top for chilly winter mornings. And if you’re an early riser or late night runner, Stella’s vibrant design is sure to keep you glowing in the dark.
