1. Rabbit Zesty Vesty

The lightweight nylon keeps you warm and wind free, and reflective seams provide extra visibility. Bonus: It packs into its own back pocket.


2. BioLite Headlamp

USB rechargeable and weighing just 69 grams, this ultra-thin headlamp projects 330 lumens of light and has a moisture-wicking band that keeps sweat out of your eyes.


3. TriggerPoint Grid Vibe

A signature grid pattern targets tight muscle tissue while a vibrating function gets in deeper than a traditional foam roller. The rechargeable, cordless battery holds two hours of power and at just over two pounds, it’s light enough for travel.


4. Goodr’s Runway Sunglasses

The glasses are made with the company’s own no-slip materials as well as polarized lenses that block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays. The latest model, the Runway, is a cat-eye shape that comes in colors from soft pink to floral.


5. Injinji Outdoor Midweight Crew NuWool

These toe socks prevent blisters and provide arch support and extra cushioning to ease impact, plus merino wool fiber keeps your feet cool on hot days and warm on cold ones.


6. Aftershokz Trekz Air

The latest wireless headphones from Aftershokz uses bone conduction technology to deliver sound through your cheekbones, leaving your ears open to the traffic, cyclists, fellow runners, or animals. Each two-hour charge offers six hours of continuous music and the latest model uses titanium to deliver a better sound with a no-slippage fit.


Must-Have App

Strava lets you record your pace, heart rate, cadence, and more, then share it with friends. The free app syncs from your watch or heart rate monitor and uploads on your Strava feed, where photos or captions can be added. Not looking to share your data? Privacy features allow users to hide their runs or even their profiles, or use privacy zones to hide portions of activity that might include a home or workspace. Competitive? Strava segments—stretches of trail or road—let users compete for the crowns, or course records, during a run.
