THE SITUATION: Fall just may be the best time of the year for running, with cooler temperatures, low humidity and a high fitness level from a summer of training. But those lower temperatures mean you can’t just throw on shorts and a T-shirt anymore.
A SOLUTION: The Sugoi Zap Run jacket weighs less than 4 ounces, but offers a excellent protection from the elements and enough insulation for all but the coldest runs. It also has excellent reflectivity to ensure that you’re seen on those early-morning and after-work runs — the jacket nearly glows in the dark when light shines on it, yet is far from obnoxious in the daylight.
THE DETAILS: The jacket features Velcro wrist cuffs and a hem drawcord for a tight fit in windy conditions, and the breathable, water-resistant fabric does a nice job of regulating your temperature. Two hand pockets in front and a chest pocket give you plenty of room to carry a phone, keys or money, and a place for your headphone cord makes running with your tunes easy. For blustery fall weather, this jacket is tough to beat.
