Five vests for cold-weather training


Can’t stand chill temps? Handle the weather with a training vest that keeps you warm and protected from the elements. We nominate these five options.

Under Armour Coldgear Infrared Barrow Vest | $150

Puffy on the outside, loaded with down fill insulation and a soft ceramic coating on the inside. The ceramic coating is meant to absorb and hold body heat. The vest is also treated to repel water. Bonus points for the removable hood.

Nike Aeroloft 800 | $180

Featuring lightweight warmth at its finest thanks to the 800-fill goose down insulation. Perforations of assorted sizes adorn the vest allowing for heat and moisture to release. If you get too hot during training, the vest’s intelligent design allows it to be packed into its back pocket, and you can then slip on a built-in hand strap for easy portability.


The North Face RDT 300 Vest | $75

Think of this as super-charged fleece – it’s made to dry ultra fast thanks to its FlashDry technology, which wicks away moisture. The vest’s lean style makes it great for layering.

 to wrap the body with warmth. While the vest offers a slim cut, the material is also stretchy to allow for unrestricted movement.
