Our squad of testers put the latest running and fitness gear to the sweat test to determine the winners of our 2017 Tech Awards.
With temperatures dropping into fine Fall weather, now is the perfect time to scope out layer-friendly gear that will help keep you on the road all season long! Check out a few favorites pieces from Women’s Running:
Saucony LX V-Neck Long Sleeve ($48) – This lightweight long sleeve top will help take the chill out of the air without leaving you overheated. The shifted side seams combat chaffing to support this semi-fitted, flattering top. Our tester loved the subtle v-neck style combined with the striped texture for a hint of fashion flare!
Asics Printed Headband ($10) – Keep fly-a-way hair at bay with this colorful elastic headband. This non-slip band adds a touch of pizzazz to any runner’s outfit!
Women’s Armour Bra by Under Armour ($58) – Worth its weight in gold, this supportive sports bra quickly became our tester’s favorite. Available in cup sizes, this bra conforms to your body for ultimate support. The bonded seams, lightweight straps, and silky smooth material make this the ultimate bra for comfort. Though a little tough to get on due to the snug fit, a little wiggle helps move the bra into the perfect position.
Saucony Ride 5 ($110) – With an 8 mm heel-to-toe drop, this neutral shoe promotes a more efficient and balanced stride. Weighing in at 8.6 ounces, these kicks feel light as air while providing flexible support. Our tester found the toe box to be a bit snug with the overall sizing roughly a half size small, so make sure you order accordingly.
Adidas Supernova Three-Quarters Tights ($60) – These snazzy capri-length tights provide an optimum amount of coverage to keep you warm at the start of your run. As your muscles warm up, ventilation transfers heat out and cool air in to keep you cool and dry. Our tester raved about the body-hugging fit and small zippered pocket for easy key stashing.
Brooks Essential Run Vest II ($70) – Protect yourself from the elements with this wind and waterproof vest. This piece delivers a touch of warmth to your core so you don’t have to shiver during early morning or evening ventures. Our tester recommended this lightweight vest as a traveling “must-have” for girls on the move.
