Our 12 Favorite Running Jackets

You shouldn't let a little cold weather stand between you and your fitness goals. And as Bostonians, we know that this can be easier said than done. If you're looking to keep up your running habits through the colder months, you'll need some equipment, most importantly a jacket. When looking for a jacket for running, consider weight and capabilities. A preferable jacket should be very light but also have windproof or waterproof capabilities.

Why do we do product recommendations at Six Minute Mile?

At Six Minute Mile, our staff likes sharing some of their favorite products. Sometimes we get paid if you actually buy one of these items -- usually about enough to buy a small coffee and a cruller at Dunks. Mostly, we just like sharing stuff we’ve tried and liked. Or stuff that’s such a good bargain that you can’t not like it.

Our main goal with Six Minute Mile is to deliver you with news, inspiration, special deals, and featured stories to help you reach your fitness goals. Check out some of our content here, and if you like what you see, subscribe today.
