The Gear You Need For Rainy Days
Every layer counts on rainy runs. Choose lightweight, seamless gear to minimise chafing and maximise wicking, and top it all off with reflective elements and lights to keep you visible and your vision clear.
The waterproof BLACK DIAMOND ICON (A$109.95; NZ$129) has a 200-lumen LED light that sits comfortably on the forehead. Multiple modes let you customise your lighting needs. Uses 4AA batteries.
The water-resistant BROOKS NIGHTLIFE HAT (AUS & NZ A$70) features a flat LED light that keeps you visible in any conditions. A reflective material covers 360° of the hat. AUS & NZ brooksrunning.com.au
The WOMEN’S UNDER ARMOUR COLDGEAR COMPRESSION LEGGINGS (A$99.99; NZ$129.99) is covered with a slick, stretchy fabric, while the inner is a soft, brushed knit that circulates your body heat. AUS facebook.com/underarmouraustralia; NZ facebook.com/underarmournz
Mizuno’s windbreaking Proof Plus technology and a buttery-soft inner brief fabric make the MIZUNO PERFORMANCE SQUARE SHORT (A$60; NZ$69.95) ideal for comfort. AUS & NZ mizuno.com.au
With a brief 6.35cm inseam, the LULULEMON SPEED SHORT (A$65; NZ$75) won’t bunch up or weigh you down on your run. A fast-wicking waistband makes these a good choice for long, drizzly runs. AU & NZ lululemon.com.au
The NITERUNNER (A$59; NZ$69) casts a pool of light where you next footfall will be. Hi-vis webbing and reflective strips to keep you safe at night. AUS & NZ niterunner.net
