I’ve never been one to wear an “outfit” while running, so putting on the Helly Hansen Racing Light Jacket and Pants was a stretch for me, and it didn’t help when my wife told me I looked metrosexual. But the performance of the jacket and pants quickly put those concerns out of my mind. Their front polyester shell makes them water- and wind-resistant, and the stretch polyester in the back makes it breathable and fit well. An innovative feature on the jacket is its front zipper ventilation, as opposed to the traditional armpit venting—it provides a more effective control of body temperature and is much easier to access. The jacket and pants also have reflective detailing to help with visibility for our short winter days. In addition to running, this combo would be perfect for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or even sledding with the kids. Available at Helly Hansen. $300 and $175; hellyhansen.com
