7 Fall Running Jackets That Won’t Turn You Into A Sweaty Mess


Whew! You survived the summer running season—it was a sweaty, hot one—and are now entering the cooler temps in fall. In fact, if you’re a morning runner, you might be surprised at just how chilly the early hours can be.

That means you’re going to need to upgrade your running wardrobe to match the season. Enter the running jacket. Problem is, there’s a fine line between staving off the wind and staying comfortable…and a jacket that’s going to trap sweat and then leave you feeling wet and sticky. If you have to deal with that every time you run, you’re not going to want to go out and pound the pavement.

We scoured our favorite online retailers for seven great options. They needed to be made with material designed to keep wind and dampness out. Plus, they had to be constructed with arm-pumping action in mind, so we were looking for those that were a little loose around the shoulders. Some of these picks are so handy that they fold into a pocket, so you can easily carry them just in case the weather turns dicey. In other words: perfection.

These running jackets are ideal as you make the transition to fall. Best of all, they’re comfortable when you move and lightweight enough that they won’t make you sweaty or be a drag on your workout. Pick up a couple, and celebrate that fall running season is here. With all the marathons going on (and maybe you even signed up for one), these will make you feel like a pro.
