Just when I thought fall would stay here forever, we were hit with a blast of cold air this week. It always takes me a few weeks to get used to the winter air and figure out exactly what to wear. As luck would have it, I was sent some new Mizuno Breath Thermo cold weather wear to check out. I have long been a fan of Mizuno shoes and I was excited to check out the Mizuno Cold Weather Wear.
Mizuno Breath Thermo Cold Weather Wear
I have been on the search the past few years for warm enough running gloves. The tips of my fingers always get numb in the cold and start to hurt. No one wants to wear big bulky gloves or 2 pairs of gloves to stay warm. I set out to put these new Mizuno Breath Thermo Gloves, to the test.
We had our first 30 degree day with strong winds and these Mizuno Breath Thermo gloves (retail $35) really did keep my hands quite warm. As your body generates heat the gloves retain that heat and use it to warm your hands. I was surprised that gloves this thin could keep my hands so warm. You are able to use your phone and manage your music while wearing the gloves. A small velcro pocket on each glove is perfect for a key or tissue.
I was also sent one of the new Breath Thermo Base Layer Crew tops ($75 retail) to take on a test run. The Breath Thermo Base layer is made with the same technology that warms your core and draws moisture away from your body. The top is thin and comfortable and I really liked the berry color. It does run slightly small so I would size up for comfort. I warmed up pretty quickly with just the crew and a light jacket and ended up taking the jacket off about 15 minutes into my run.
Having a great base layer that keeps me warm and dry is key to a happy and comfortable winter run. I would add both the gloves and the base layer to my holiday running gift list and may pick up a few pairs of gloves for friends.
Tell me- Do your hands get numb in the winter? Have you tried any of the Mizuno Breath Thermo cold weather wear?
