Run For Cold Pullover TTS 10
This years winter running outerwear is finally here and instead of down, it is primaloft with a more matte finish than last years fluff pullovers. The primaloft option will appeal to those of you that don’t wear down. There are three pieces to the Run For Cold collection, the pullover, jacket and vest. The color options are plum, black and white. I liked this pullover actually. I don’t think it’s as hardy as previous years down pullovers but it looks nice on and I like that the 1/2 zip zipper goes down a long way. I don’t like this new cotton fleece material they are using instead of RULU though, it seems a lot flimsier. They are calling it ‘four way stretch’ material which I think is hilarious. Way to be oblique.
The inside ‘soft’ panels is this brushed cottony fleece. I don’t care for this material as it’s rather thin and not very warm, although it is soft.
Back pocket is wide and short so I think you’d have to put your smart phone in on it’s side, or use this pocket for snacks.
Run For Cold Jacket TTS 10
The jacket is not bad, quite light weight but pretty plain. I didn’t dislike it but I also wasn’t wowed by it. The pullover has more design features and more visual interest.
Run For Cold Vest TTS 10
The vest was nice too but I like last years (and restocked this year) Down For A Run Vest. The quilting and the rulu sides make it a much more stylish option. I think the matte black of the glyde in these pieces will appeal to a lot of you though. This vest is comfortable and really light, and warm but not toasty.
You can see some of the perforated ‘ventilation’ holes in this Run For Cold line in this picture.
Outrun LS TTS 10
I liked this pullover a lot but mostly for the color. The rulu felt a bit stiff but once on it felt softer and more relaxed. I think this years rulu has less lycra and is only brushed on the inside with a smoother finish on the outside, so that change is throwing me off. I liked the little scalloped reflective detailing at the cuff. I’m going to wait for the Nocturnal Teal Swiftly Tech LS instead I think.
Nocturnal Teal Cool Racerback II comes in Nocturnal Teal and Plum
SO MAD. I wanted to want this Cool Racerback because I love this Nocturnal Teal color. It’s a CRB II though which I’ve kiboshed, and the price seems ridiculous. I’ve also found the last three CRB II’s I’ve tried on fit tighter than the first run of CRB II’s that where out in the summer. I also found this one sheer over my bust. I would have purchased this CRB in a heartbeat if it was the original version and original price, but instead I’m going to wait and see what other items we get in this color.
Outrun 1/2 Zip TTS 10
I really liked this pullover a lot and am considering ordering it tonight. The color is really pretty and much brighter than the LS I showed above. I like the looser fit and the softness of this jacquard material over the new version of rulu. An interesting thing I noticed is that the 1/2 zip zipper is curved. Are all 1/2 zips like that these days? I think it makes it much easier to pull the zipper up or down when you are one handed.
Ombre Wunder Under Pant TTS 10
I tried these on today and I was surprised that the Ombre lighter color actually goes up my entire calf. I’m short at 5’4 but I also have short legs so I didn’t expect to see enough of the ombre. I did. If I wear boots it’s completely covered but if I’m wearing my running shoes you would see plenty of it. These are on my ‘wait for markdown’ list.
Fast And Free Tight Nocturnal Teal – TTS 10
I really liked these a lot. I think this is the best version of Nulux tights that have been released so far. It’s as nice as the Like Nothing Tight, but it’s not missing the crotch seam which I feel is essential, and it has pockets on the side with reflective detailing at the cuff. This is a very functional tight for runners. I love the higher rise and the side seams. My only complaint about these is the raw hem at the ankles. This is not a ‘feature’ I look for in pants and it really causes me to hesitate on spending $138 plus tax. I want nicely finished for that price, not potential bagging out or unravelling. I’m going to think about it and may purchase these tonight since I’ve been really wanting to try out nulux for a workout.
I accidentally grabbed a size up in these but I tried them on anyways. Although these are nocturnal teal, because they are so matte they read more grey than the color does in other materials.
these are cute! I was tempted to get one but I don’t need a new makeup bag. I really like that it’s chevron quilted.
