8 Warm Pants Perfect for Winter Running
Made for a Woman
NB Impact Capri, $55 (Women's) 1 of 9
For mild winter days, the Impact Capri gives you skin-hugging warmth with a stay-cool length. Mesh inserts at the back of the knee minimize sweat buildup. Reflective detailing improves visibility in low-light conditions, and the zippered back media pocket includes a headphone port.
On the Double
Ashmei 2-in-1 Short, $122 (Men's) 2 of 9
These shorts from U.K.-based apparel maker Ashmei will likely be the most expensive shorts you ever buy, but the two-in-one construction delivers. A tight wool underlayer is soft and warm against the skin. The featherweight outer-short is modestly baggy without looking sloppy.
Dress to Compress
CW-X Revolution Tight, $195 3 of 9
Thanks to lightweight, seamless compression paneling, these tights provide support and increased blood flow to muscles and joints from your calves to your waist, without feeling constrictive. Their body-hugging fit holds up in sopping rain. A fairly tiny key pocket sits on the interior left hip.
Men's, in Black
Saucony Drylete XPT Pant, $75 4 of 9
With the relaxed appeal of a loose-fitting pant, the Drylete XPT has an athletic cut that doesn't get in your way. The midweight polyester/spandex blend is best suited for dry conditions, but the smooth exterior sheds snow. Zippered pockets add to the classic warmup pant look.
SmartWool TML Light Pant, $130 5 of 9
Constructed with a blend of warm, naturally breathable Merino wool, durable nylon, and stretchy spandex, these winter pants perform on very cold days. The fit falls in between a pant and a tight, and irritation-free zippers make it easy to pull these on and off.
The North Face Winter Warm Tight, $85 6 of 9
In downright cold conditions, the fleece-lined interior of these insulated tights keeps you comfortable. The smooth exterior sheds snow, making these ideal for any winter road run or snowshoe race. A flat waistband minimizes restriction–a feature best appreciated after holiday meals. •Coldest: Below 25°F
•The North Face
Warm and Fuzzy
Brooks Utopia Thermal Cozy Pant, $75 7 of 9
The soft, brushed interior and relaxed, straight-leg cut make these a pleasure to slip into. The flattering detail may have you wearing these to the gym and on errands. A reflective logo on the hip and hidden key pocket on the waistband add to the appeal. •Coldest: Below 25°F
Gore Running Wear Mythos So Neon Tights, $150 8 of 9
Made with Gore's Windstopper Softshell fabric, this snow- and water-resistant pant shields you from winter's harshest weather, yet is remarkably stretchy and comfortable. Neon details at the shins and back of the knees, plus reflective details on both the front and backside, keep you visible. •Coldest: Below 25°F
