I love my Tracksmith harrier long sleeves, but they’re not warm enough to wear on their own for true winter conditions. If you like running in merino too, but you feel like most merino is too lightweight for winter conditions, Tracksmith’s downeaster… […]

Arc’teryx Atom Hoody Review

I’ve been running mostly in my lululemon insulated jackets for years, but as those have worn out, I decided to branch out. The Atom hoody is one of Arc’teryx’s most popular, do-everything styles, and everyone I know seems to have one. Like a true social creature, I had to give it a try too. I… […]
