Tut, tut — it looks like you’re stuck in the gym? With Cali on track for its wettest year in history, use these wet-dry goodies so your al fresco workouts aren’t left high and dry.
Aptly named, these super fine merino wool socks hug your foot in a way few others do. Design to encompass the actual shape of your foot, with padding for impact, even the no-show styles don’t get eaten by your shoes mid-run. The light hiking style can handle as much moisture as you offer, whether tromping through streams that only appeared in the past few months, a light drizzle or your own personal, ahem, condensation.
IceBug Waterproof Trainer
Dial in the perfect fit with a spin of the Boa lacing system. Soft padding in the collar and tongue, and a foot shaped ergonomic and mesh upper with GORE-TEX membrane makes sure your foot is protected, stable and comfortable in any weather. The DTS3 RB9X GTX’s great traction, even on wet surfaces, keeps your running game on track.
Sirena Nuu Ruu
Quick dry, moisture-wicking and so cute you can run yourself right from the club’s court to brunch with the girls. Great for tennis, fun runs, yoga or an impromptu beach workout (sand brushes right off). The hidden pocket in the back doesn’t affect your workout and ensures essentials — like your id and cash for that mimosa — are right where you need them on the fly.
Your outer gear might be as moisture wicking and quick dry as can be, but if your underlayer is not…the foundation of your all-weather workout will be facing some issues. We love this hi-tech undie/cami set made with miracle mesh material that not only stays in place and is cool and dry, but anti-microbial.
Helly Hansen Hild QD
Whether you like a little coverage or a lot, these high performance shorts and workout tights will keep you moving in any weather. The lightweight nylon quick dry stretch shorts and pants also keep you protected when that rain, rain goes away with UV 50+ protection and a gusset for extra movement.
The Luxe towel option offers cozy comfort with fast-drying and Polygiene odor-controlled performance. Its absorbent fabric soaks up 5 times its weight in water, but can be wrung out easily and dries 30% faster than cotton. Great for a rainshower or a gym shower, the zipper pouch with hang loop can attach to a bike frame or live in the car between machine washes.
This 3.3 OUNCE (!) packable jacket not only fits into a tiny hip-belt pack, but includes a full-back overlay to give easy access if you are wearing it over a backpack while hiking. Don’t fight a swishing jacket tied around your hips on questionable days, just snap on the belt and know you will be covered, rain or shine.
