What To Wear Running In This Crazy A** Spring Weather

In the marathon of life, springtime is a false flat.

Just when you think you’ve taken winter's last blow, with its cold, closed fists - BAM - back we go.

It should be warm (it’s not). Or it should be fair (it’s hot). It should be in line with the forecast (it never is).

What’s a girl to do!? Per usual, turn off the brain, fire up the persistence - and go running anyway.

We might not be able to control the weather, but we’re not going to let the weather control us.

For this very reason (because we need to run anyway), Oiselle designs all-seasons, all-weather running apparel for women who won’t be denied their daily miles. So no matter where spring, or lack of spring, might find you right now - we have you covered. Pick your climate, pick your gear, and pick a path! Before you know it, we’ll all be swassing it out through the hot days of July and wishing for a nice cool Nor-easter. Or not.

What to wear when the temps are frozen:

1. INSULATING BASELAYERS

2. LIGHTWEIGHT INSULATED OUTERWEAR

  • Performance based insulation, such as outerwear with PrimaLoft insulation or Polartec Alpha are ideal for keeping you warm while also managing sweat and moisture - moving it away from your body (Quill Jacket, Quill Vest).
  • Not too frozen? A hybrid baselayer + insulated piece works well, such as the Flyout Insulated Baselayer.

3. INSULATING ACCESSORIES

What to wear when the temps are hot:

1. COOLING FABRICS

2. LIGHTWEIGHT STRETCH

  • Light loose shorts that also have stretch make movement and air cooling more possible (Flyout Shorts, or Summer Rogas).
  • Prefer compression shorts? Flyte Shorts are simple and seamless, moving with your body, and Spandos Shorts offer lightweight compression without a squeezed tight feeling.

3. UPF PROTECTION

What to wear when the weather is rainy:

1. WATER AND WIND RESISTANCE

  • Stay dry but with an ultra lightweight layer that won’t weigh you down or get soggy inside (The Vim Jacket or Vigor Vest are best of class, with Pertex™ Microlight which resists wind/rain via the engineering of its fabric, not chemicals).

2. TEMP REGULATING BASELAYERS

3. WATER REPELLANT HEADWARE

  • Keep the rain and wind out of your eyes. Hats with brims, such as the Roga Cap or Runner Trucker.
  • Lightweight gloves may be all you need, such as Lux Gloves, which are easy to tuck away once you warm up.

What to wear when it’s plain cold:

1. PERFORMANCE BASELAYER

2. WIND PROTECTION

  • A lightweight shell is an ideal layer, for any cold run, over your baselayer (see Vim Jacket, or Vigor Vest)

3. PROTECTIVE ACCESSORIES

Fan Favorites for Crazy Weather: We asked you what your go-to picks are for each climate and we couldn't agree more. Here's to all the birds not letting the weather control their run!

IMPORTANT REMINDER: At any temperature, it’s important to hydrate and change out of your running clothes as soon after the run as possible. So if you’re starting your run elsewhere, or plan to go from post-run to other places, pack a bag with warm, comfortable clothes to change into afterwards. This prevents hypothermia in cold climates, being chilled, and/or skin irritation. The Oiselle Duffel Bag, is at the ready.
