With warmer weather now the norm across the northern hemisphere, it’s time to take advantage of these longer and more outdoor-friendly days. That means, making up for all the lazy days filled with heavy foods and lack of exercise. Now, with brighter days ahead, it’s time to get back on track and back in shape.
Keeping this in mind, we decided to piece together a summer training kit for those willing to take things to the next level in their regimen. We’re talking a unique fitness watch, wireless earbuds to keep the motivation strong mid-run, and a quality-built running shirt and shorts that are both breathable, lightweight, and high-performance in nature. For whether you’re training in your local gym or outdoors, it always pays to have gear that works just as hard as you do.
Iffley Road Cambrian Striped Tee
Built to last and offering unbeatable comfort on the trail, Iffley Road’s all-new Cambrian running tee is a striped version of their classic technical running t-shirt. Each piece is built from their incredibly soft and high wicking drirelease® that dries four times quicker than cotton along with a polyester blend for superb performance. Additionally, in-seam pockets also provide a safe haven for small valuables while a slim and stylish cut with their trademark longer sleeves meet any and all style requirements.
Balega Hidden Dry 2 Socks
Need a pair of moisture-wicking socks that stay hidden from your ankles? Then look no further than Balega’s Hidden Dry 2. Each pair features a reinforced microfiber heel and toe, enhanced elastic grip, and a unique Triple-Y heel for a deeper pocket that’s ergonomically formed to the shape of your foot.
Iffley Road x SIGG Water Bottle
Teaming up with SIGG, Iffley Road was able to develop this fine water bottle that’ll suit any hydration needs on the track. Each bottle (also available in blue) is built with lightweight yet durable Tritan, is BPA free, dishwasher safe, and fits any standard sized bottle cage.
Iffley Road Brighton Shorts
Mid-length running shorts function as a great blend of performance and style for those who wish to keep their upper thighs hidden from the hot sun. Needless to say, these gravel black Brighton 8” shorts from Iffley Road caught our immediate attention due in part to their high-performance Italian fabric construction, secure zipper pocket, and soft mesh brief.
York Athletics Henry Cloud Mesh
When training, lightweight running sneakers are ideal to help keep you light on your feet at all times. Which is why the Henry Cloud Mesh from York Athletics was such a solid choice in our book. Each pair features a reinforced heel counter, a micro-fiber tongue, light and breathable cloud mesh upper, and a custom PU foam sock liner for superior moisture wicking.
SUUNTO 3 Fitness Watch
Any level of training could benefit from a bit of technological assistance and tracking. That’s why we felt the SUUNTO 3 Fitness was such a great fit. Here, we have a smart fitness watch positioned to help you train and maintain a healthy lifestyle thanks to key features such as adaptive guidance, sleep quality tracking, a connected GPS, heart rate monitor, and active training among many others.
Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Headphones
Keeping the music alive during any indoor or outdoor training exercise is key to maintaining motivation throughout your routine. And with this pair of wireless Bose in-ear headphones, you’ll find superior sound quality, durability, and comfort all coming together in perfect harmony each and every time you step foot on the track.
Nike Vaporwing Speed Tint
For a state-of-the-art aerodynamic design and championed construction, Nike’s Vaporwing Speed Tint sunglasses are a tough pair of shades to beat in this world. Their Speed Tint lenses work to block harsh light on the track, while a self-adjusting nose pad helps customize an individual fit while enhancing airflow. Also, with their flying lens technology, and rubber channels and vents that also enhance airflow, these could very well be the best pair of running sunglasses on the market today.
