Premium Running Base Layer Collection
Regardless of your skill level and reason for running, base layers are critical to safety, comfort, and successful goal attainment. Designed for wear beneath another layer of clothing, the base layer protects your skin from the elements and makes it possible to maintain a safe body temperature in any weather.
Every runner needs base layer attire. Even if you're running in picturesque landscapes with beautiful weather year-round, you will encounter mornings that are a bit chilly or evening winds with a slight sting at some point. Base layers allow you to add or remove clothing as needed to make the best of any weather.
Running Base Layer Options
What are you looking for when shopping base layers for runners? It depends on the climate and your personal running preferences, but there are a few pieces that fit into every runner's wardrobe:
- Long sleeve running top
- Full length leggings
- Slip shorts
If you need a base layer for summer or spring, you may add a tank top or short-sleeve top with an athletic fit to this list. These items create the foundation of a solid base layer wardrobe for runners putting in the miles rain or shine.
Running Base Layer Winter, Summer & Every Season in Between
Your winter running base layer options include a variety of long-sleeve tops and full-length leggings or athletic pants. These items will help trap in body heat for maximum warmth in chilly temperatures. You can select from a variety of materials and designs that are suitable for slightly cold weather or the most frigid environments.
For summer running or climates that are warm all year round, base layer shirts often take the form of tank tops or short-sleeve tops that are form fitting. Athletic shorts or capri-length leggings are great options as well. These items allow you to take layers on and off when the temperatures fluctuate.
