New Winter Jacket / Beanie

Rest day on the schedule today.


Yesterday in the mail I got my delivery of new running stuff from Running Warehouse(com).  I purchased a new winter Jacket for this season.  I've been running with a NorthFace jacket and it's served me well and continues to be a great jacket but I purchased another one so I could swap out jackets on a daily basis.  Here's what I got:
Pearl Izumi Infinity Windblocking Jacket
It's the Pearl Izumi Infinity Windblocking Jacket.  This thing is built for winter.  In fact, it's rated for temperatures BELOW 30 degrees.  Yes, you read that right, I want to stay out in the winter in colder temps.  Ha.  Ok, not really but if I'm going to be out there, I might as well be comfortable.  This thing has it all:
  • Wind and water resistant
  • Breathable
  • Thumb holes
  • Built in mittens
  • Zipper Jacket on the neck
  • Two hand pockets and a rear zipper pocket
  • Active moisture transfer material with a soft-shell
  • Reflective on both front and back
  • Warm!
The best part about it?  This jacket was on sale for just under $80.  I used my Running Warehouse gift cards, which I got for 20% off the price of the gift card so the bottom line price --- $64!!!!  How awesome is that?  It's a $135 jacket if you go to Pearl Izumi's website.

The other item I purchased is a Salomon beanie:
Salomon winter beanie
This is one of the most comfortable beanies I own!  The unique thing about it is that it has two sleeves on the side to allow your glasses to fit on your head properly.  A really great design for a winter hat.  Glasses stay on and in place and your head stays warm too.  This one was a bit more expensive but still only under $20(with my 20% discount from the gift card and a 10% regular discount) for a quality winter hat.
I'm ready for what winter brings me.
Of course, now that I'm ready, it's going to be in the 50's this weekend.  Haha!  I'll take it though.

Full reviews to follow on both after I run with them about about a month or so.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Thats a nice looking the reflectors on it since it will most likely be dark these days!

  2. Looks like you are totally ready for winter running. So maybe that means we won't have a winter to need those things :) that would be nice.
