Outfit of the Week: the New England Long Run

ootw_5

Because you never know what you’re going to get when it comes to weather! This combo will get you through the long run in conditions ranging from clear and cold, to sleet and snow, to unseasonable warmth, and everything in between.

Raining when you head out but then it clears up and gets warmer later in the run? No problem, because the Versa Jacket turns into a VEST! And it packs into itself so if you need to ditch the outer layer completely, you’re good! Toss those Breath Thermo gloves into one of the zip pockets, pack up that jacket, and you’re cruising through your last few miles.
