That runner is crazy!
These are the thoughts of most people when they see someone running outside in the frigid cold and wind wearing only a thin jacket.
In reality, the person running outside may be warmer than the person in the vehicle with the heat on.
Many popular running brands like Mizuno, Brooks, and New Balance offer an innovative base layer and outer layer technology that actually generates heat as moisture is wicked away from the body. This allows you to stay warm, dry, and comfortable in the winter with few layers. A few of the heat generating tech wear that we offer at Complete Runner are Breath Thermo, Heater Hog, and NB Heat.
Breath Thermo by Mizuno
One of the original heat generating technologies, Mizuno continues to innovate with the 2013 Breath Thermo offering twice the warmth in half the weight. We carry Breath Thermo in base layer top and tights for men and women (in most versions).
Heater Hog by Brooks
Brooks’ version of heat generating technology is offered in the base layer for men, with a similar Smart Skin mesh base layer available for women.
NB Heat by New Balance
The NB Heat Windblocker Jacket and Tights not only generate heat but block the wind and are water resistant.
If you are serious about running outside in the winter you need some serious tech wear to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable, and you should rely on heat generating technology to do the job.
