2016 Running Gear Guide: Race-Day Gear
This gear has what it takes to help you fly to the finish line as efficiently and comfortably as possible.
Thumbholes and a full arm fit mean you won’t have to waste energy shivering while waiting for the starting gun to go off. Plus these sleeves have compression to help improve circulation. The pair also has a handy mesh stash pocket that’s just right for a race day gel or two.
Yes, you can carry it with you—phone, inhaler, room key, ID, credit card, cash, a gel—without odd lumps and bumps. Four generous and stretchy envelope pockets give lots of storage room in a breathable band that’s sized to fit. It will even stay put for your finish-line sprint.
Three thin straps of fabric contain even the wispiest bangs, and layers merge into one soft stay-put strap in the back for no-fuss racing. You’ll look hip, you’ll feel good and you’ll race faster.
Stop race day chafing before it begins with 9.5-inch inseam, DNAmic gradient compression tights that feel as fast as they look. Comfort continues with an anatomically shaped crotch for a comfortable fit and a soft microfiber waistband that stays in place without digging.
Dreamy lightweight, stretch jersey fabric feels soft against the skin and breathes as you crank up the heat. The styling on this tank elevates it way beyond a basic singlet: Pin tucks at the back give a flattering drape, dropped side panels help prevent it from riding up and an empire line at the bust continues the look-good, feel-good aesthetic.
