TYR Purifying Suit Cleaner
Swim skins and triathlon suits are expensive, and unfortunately, prolonged exposure to salt or chlorine will break them down pretty quickly. This Purifying Suit Cleaner from TYR helps mitigate the effects of chlorine to maximize lifespan and retain your suit's color and shape (and remove odor, of course).
2XU Compression Calf Guards
Super popular in the triathlon scene, these compression calf guards from 2XU are designed to prevent muscle soreness, shin splints and overuse injuries. They're designed to contain the calf muscle and alleviate the effects of repeated muscle vibration, and due to their compressive nature, they help promote circulation, reduce fatigue and improve power output. Better yet, they feature antibacterial and UPF 50+ sun protection.

CBD isn't just popular in mainstream sport circles—triathletes have embraced CBD with open arms due to its ability to naturally relieve training pains and aches. This variety from Re: Botanicals is for topical use and is applied with the metal ball roll-on applicator, and can be easily stored in your gear bag. It's USDA certified organic, third-party tested and has no added chemicals or synthetic fragrances.
Eddie Bauer Northern Lights Plush Funnel-Neck
Perfect for heading to the pool for an early-morning swim or to curl up in after a hard ride or run, this plush fleece funnel-neck sweater is a great layer to keep in the car or gear bag. It's made with a blend of ultra-soft polyester, cotton and spandex to create the ideal balance between comfort and moisture wicking, and its relaxed fit increases mobility and coverage.
Eddie Bauer Movement High Rise Leggings
The perfect pairing for the previously mentioned sweater, these leggings from Eddie Bauer are ideal for anything from long training runs in cooler temperatures to relaxing on the couch. The compression fabric is highly supportive and features a figure-flattering, high-rise style, and the FreeDry moisture wicking and Polygiene Odor Control means your triathlete can wear them more and wash them less.
TYR Women's Competitor Tri Suit
A triathlon suit is one of the most underrated pieces of gear in your triathlete's bag. They wear it from the time the gun goes off to the moment they cross the finish line, so it needs to be both comfortable and have performance-oriented features. This Competitor Tri Suit from TYR offers a nice balance between price and performance, and includes technology like compression webbing for increased blood flow, UPF 50+ sun protection, leg grips and more.
Pearl Izumi Merino Long Sleeve Baselayer
There's nothing better than a well-designed baselayer that fits just right. Pearl Izumi's Merino Long Sleeve Baselayer has more going on that meets the eye—it's constructed with a method called plating to place recycled polyester fibers next to the skin to transport moisture away to the Merino layer. What does this mean in plain language? When your triathlete is dry, they'll stay warmer (and happier) longer.
Nathan Reflective Convertible Glove/Mitt
Not all gloves are created equal, especially when it comes to gloves designed for running. While known for their hydration packs, Nathan's Reflective Convertible Gloves/Mitts are loaded with features. They're built with thermal stretch fabric for extended warmth with weather-resistant DWR finish, and feature high-visibility night-friendly reflective graphics. Your triathlete will especially appreciate the nose-wipe chamois thumb and the TruTouch fabric for texting.

If you really want to make a splash with your triathlete (no pun intended), consider gifting them the Polar Vantage M this holiday season. It's an all-round multisport and running GPS watch that's the ultimate training companion. Not only is it slim, lightweight and have an impressive battery life, it also tracks just about every metric your triathlete could ask for, as well as features a built-in wrist-based heart rate sensor.
