PAUL FREARY looks at the gear which will keep out the weather and will allow you to clock up the miles on the hills and trails in comfort


WITH a windproof and water-resistant front, shoulder and arm sections, this long-leeve shirt offers enough protection on its own to keep you functioning in hill-top downpours. In the depths of winter, add a base layer and you’ll be good to go. Thumbholes in the sleeve ends provide added warmth to the hands but, thanks to the breathable nature of the fabric and front zipper, we were able to regulate temperature perfectly. A small, rear zip pocket is useful, as are the reflective details that add to the visibility.


SITTING just above the collar of the shoe, these socks provide protection for the foot without adding weight or bulk. The Coolmax fabric does an excellent job of wicking moisture and keeping the feet dry as well as providing a low-volume section of cushioning in the heel and forefoot. A knitted band in the midfoot provides support as well as helping keep the socks in place and comfortable. The three-pack in a variety of colours inject some style to your running wardrobe at a reasonable price. Style to your running wardrobe at a reasonable price.
