What to Wear While Running in Extreme Cold

Don’t let the cold keep you inside. Running in even extremely cold temps is safe - with a few precautions. Knowing your route, running with others, and sticking to daylight hours are a few simple steps. Beyond that, what you wear can make a big difference in safety and comfort:



As your temperature increases through the run, it should be easy to un-layer and re-layer as necessary. The Vim Jacket, for example, has a self-stow pouch and an elastic band, making it easy to stow and carry around a wrist or arm. Gloves and beanies can be stashed in pockets or waistbands as you warm up, and then put on again when needed. 

It’s common, especially during long runs, to start cold, get warm, and then get cool again as the body continues to regulate its temperature. Having lightweight options that can be put on, and taken off, is the key to comfort. Other than, run all the miles all season long!
