During fall and winter you will most likely have to brave the rain while running. To keep your motivation high during these tough winter months, It’s important that you keep yourself dry and looking/feeling stylish.
Here are a few things to consider when buying waterproof running gear:
- Is it actually waterproof? If the product marketing explicitly states that item it “‘water resistant’ then it’s NOT fully waterproof.
- Is it lightweight? There’s nothing worse than being weighed down by a jacket or pants that absorbs water, even if it keeps you dry underneath.
- Is it breathable? You don’t want to be overheating while running, airflow is key.
- Is it form fitting? Extra resistance when running is a ‘drag’ so make sure your jacket and pants fit your body frame closely.
