Not only does this wind- and water-resistant hooded jacket protect you from wintry weather, it's contrasting geometric pattern reflects oncoming headlights for "shine bright like a diamond" visibility. —Allison Pattillo, contributing gear editor
I had never tried Under Armour running shoes before, but the second I put these on, my feet felt like they were running on clouds! I loved how much cushion and support these shoes gave me, without making the sole look too thick. —Nicole Christenson, marketing manager

Night runs mean no light at 5 p.m., so this headlamp is perfect for group runs on Monday nights. The light is almost obnoxiously bright, perfect for oncoming traffic or just lighting the way in front of your feet.
