Outside running is good running. And outside running requires options. For the wind, the rain, the cold, the change body temp, from start to finish. It’s a design challenge - one we happily sign up for. Like that fall marathon. Buckle up, friends. This season’s outerwear is thoughtfully designed, beautifully colored, and technically excellent.
Let’s start with the new Say Anything Jacket:
One of the most common questions we get about jackets is “Is it waterproof?” As designers of running apparel, it’s a question that requires a bit of unpacking. First, in MOST cases, for MOST runners, wearing a waterproof jacket is not advised. Why? Because fabrics such as Gore-Tex are thick, heavy, and great at keeping water out, but don’t let moisture our heat escape - from the inside out. So in most cases, water and wind resistance, like what you’ll find in the Vim Jacket and Vigor Vest is ideal. And yet… we all know there’s BIG WEATHER as my Mom used to say. When conditions get wicked - and that waterproof solution is JUST what you need. Enter Schoeller fabrics. The Swiss fabric mill that’s been making high performing, weather denying, long-lasting fabrics for decades.
