The jacket's advanced high-loft fleece traps heat for warmth without piling on weight and bulkiness.

ASICS Core Long Sleeve Running Shirt

A long sleeve running shirt is a staple for every runner. This shirt from ASICS is breathable, comfortable, and has great wicking capabilities. It's perfect all by itself for cool runs or as a base layer for those cold runs.

Under Armour Men's ColdGear Leggings

A quality pair of leggings is a must for any serious runner who runs in cold weather. Under Armour's Coldgear Compression Leggings reduce muscle fatigue and ensure warmth in even the coldest winter winds. They also feature anti-odor technology that prevents the growth of odor-causing microbes.

Drymax Cold Weather Crew Running Socks

These socks from Drymax have a special Dual Layer Moisture Removal System, which instantly moves moisture from the skin through the inner Drymax layer to the outer absorbent layer, keeping feet dry. The third layer of Drymax fiber insulation was added along the front of the sock, since that area gets coldest due to wind chill.

The socks also feature dense padding (rather than thick padding), as it protects feet without adding bulk. These socks are designed for use in cold to cool conditions, keeping feet dry, comfortable, and odor-free.

ASICS Men's Storm Shelter Jacket

Made from ASICS's most protective, waterproof, and windproof fabric, this jacket can help you battle any kind of bad weather. Also features wind panels for additional warmth and comfort, strategic venting to prevent overheating, and security pockets at sides and chest.
