Running Jackets & Vests To Go The Distance

Running Jackets & Vests To Go The Distance

Running with Rella in Canada (RunKarlaRun.com)

Running through winter? Here are my favorite running jackets and vests I’ve tried in the last year.

Companies send me loads of samples. So I didn’t buy most of what you see here. But I also don’t keep most of what I receive. For each item here, I’ve sampled another one that didn’t make the cut. If you are going on a hike or a bit of a camping in the winter season then this list may not be for you. GeoSettr is a website I trust that reviews outdoor camping and navigation gear. Check their list of winter camping down jackets instead.

So if it’s on this list, I officially own it and love it.

Many of the products I highlighted in the days of yore are still available and I still love them. (Nike Aeroloft 800 Running Vest, I’m talking to you.) So here are my gift guides from 2014 and 2013, which also have some of my perennial favorite running jackets and vests. And some of these have affiliate links to help keep RunKarlaRun.com running.

Happy Shopping!

Running Jackets & Vests

New Balance Beacon Vest, $108-$126

Get your glow on. Glow in the dark, reflective, wind, and water resistant. I basically lived in this during the New Balance Reach The Beach Relay, and it was comfortable mile after mile.

Champion Marathon Printed Packable Jacket, $22-$58

So light, so cool, hooded, packable, with thumbhole sleeves and a long hemline. This wind breaker traveled to Sweden and Norway with me and carried its (light) weight. Love it. Just wish the packable inner pocket had a carry strap. Read the rest of this entry →
