10 Winter Running Essentials

All the running gear to keep you warm and dry on your winter runs—"Baby, it's cold outside," won't stand as an excuse not to go.
The outermost layer on the upper body needs to protect against wind and water. Nike’s Element Shield Max repels both like any good jacket, but its real worth comes from its special features. The jacket has a set of hand warmers—for added protection on top of your gloves—and a hood to break out when your beanie alone isn’t cutting it. A turtleneck also shields your neck from the wind, but the best part? It’s pockets are small and noninvasive, so the jacket doesn’t look like something an escape artist would wear. ($250, nike.com)
