December 28, 2015 Augusta, Training 0 Comments

December may be on its way out, but winter is here to stay for a few more months. As the coldest days of the new year hit, don’t let the weather keep you inside. Break free from the cold and keep your exercise routine on track with cold-weather gear from Augusta Active. We’ve all heard that layering is the most effective way to stay warm. However, it can be hard to choose the right weight and fit for each layer. Fear not, winter athletes.

Here’s our breakdown of our favorite layering gear for winter:

It all starts with the base layer. The best houses are built on a solid foundation, and your workout gear is no different! It’s important to make sure your base layer is going to pull moisture away from your body. Wicking material is ideal. For men, we recommend the Wicking Mock Turtleneck. Women can’t go wrong with a classic like our Women’s Long Sleeve Wicking T-shirt.

A middle layer helps to lock in warmth. You’ll want to trap as much body heat as possible to keep your core warm. It’s important to keep flexibility in mind. You don’t want to be so bundled up you can’t move! We recommend a trusted sweatshirt or midweight fleece pullover. Try our Chill Fleece Half Zip Pullover for men or our Freedom Pullover for women. Depending on how cold it is, you may even want two layers between your base layer and outermost jacket! For pants, we recommend our Men’s Fleece Sweatpant and Women’s Brushed Back Leggings.

A waterproof outer layer will keep wind, rain, and snow at bay. No one likes to be wet and cold! Your outermost layer should keep you dry and block out the elements. Our Men’s Premier Jacket and Women’s Fury Jacket are both made from 100% polyester diamond tech, which makes them both water resistant and durable.

It’s essential to keep your fingers and toes warm. Have you ever noticed that your fingers and toes are often the first part of your body to get cold? You can’t forget to cover up your hands and feet on a cold day. Our new Tech Gloves are a must-have for the smartphone user because they allow you to continue to use a touchscreen while wearing the gloves! Augusta Active also offers a wide range of socks for every member of the family, including socks with wicking technology.

Keep your head in the game! It’s easy to forget to cover your head and ears, but keeping your ears and head warm is one of the most important things you can do in cold weather. We recommend our Close Fitting Knit Beanie, Chill Fleece Beanie, and Chill Fleece Sport Headband.
