Layering

As the merchandising manager of apparel for Brooks Running, it’s Bennett Grimes’ job to obsess about runners’ comfort when it comes to clothes. Here he shares his insider tips on dressing properly for brisk runs between 59–40 degrees.

What You Need To Wear
Tank Top
Long Sleeve Shirt
Shell (if windy)
Capris

“This is where layering starts to become important,” Grimes explains. The beauty of a double layer is that the first will pull moisture off your skin while the second will keep the cold from creeping in. Keep the tank and capris, but add a long-sleeved shirt on top. If it’s a windy day, you might want to add a shell.
