Mizuno Winter Running Gear Review

*This is a sponsored post for Mizuno through my association with Fitfluential. However, the opinions expressed here are my own.

Happy Friday, I hope you had a great week! I don’t know about you, but re-entry after the holidays was a bit rough. However, I did my best to get back into a solid workout routine.  I was able to get in several runs despite the cold temps here in Maine and they felt great!

A lot of people ask me how I stay comfortable running outside in the winter. One of the key things is layering properly with the right gear. A month ago, I received a winter running shirt and gloves from Mizuno to try out. I love both items so much!  The shirt is a great base layer on very cold days, but can be worn by itself on warmer winter days. It is made with “Breath Thermo” which is an amazing form of heat-generating technology.

So how does “Breath Thermo” work & why do I love it?

-The Breath Thermo fibers are a yarn that is woven into the shirt that uses body moisture to produce heat

-These fibers are also moisture wicking, which means I stay dry!

-It is very lightweight, so it is perfect for layering without adding bulk. In fact, I really enjoy wearing the shirt alone or with a vest on colder days.  I am actually looking forward to using this shirt as a base layer when I go skiing as well!

-I also love that the shirt is long. I can tuck it into my tights without worrying about it popping out or I can leave it loose to keep my backside warm.

I also love the gloves, they keep my hands toasty via Breath Thermo technology as well. They are lightweight and have a pocket on the back, which is very handy. I like to tuck a few kleenex in this space as the winter weather can cause my nose to run. They also have a touch screen finger on both hands to allow easy smartphone use.

Overall, I give the Mizuno Winter Running Gear a Five Star rating! I look forward to adding a Mizuno jacket to my wardrobe as well.

I'm sure those gloves help a lot. I can't tell you how many times I've been out running in the cold and my hands were freezing.

I usually never run in the winter because I hate wearing jackets and then getting so hot so quick that I have to take it off. Never heard of mizuno. Sounds amazing. I'm checking them out. Who knows maybe I'll run in the winter.
