The Nathan HyperNight Reflective Gloves (also available for women) are a great choice when stuffing the stockings of the runners you know. These gloves fulfill a simple role by keeping runners’ hands warm with a brushed fleece lining and comfortable stretch fabric. They also provide extra piece of mind with reflective detailing, which provides increased visibility and safety. The index finger is designed to be compatible with touchscreens, allowing runners to use devices to log their run or call for a pickup.
The Outdoor Research Exhale Ubertube is a simple winter accessory that pays unexpected dividends when placed in the holiday stocking of any cold-weather runner. This wicking, windproof layer keeps necks and faces warm in icy breezes or low temperatures. Unlike other face coverings, the Outdoor Research Exhale Ubertube features a vented mouthpiece that allows runners to breathe freely and easily.
The Smartwool Women’s PhD Outdoor Light Micro sock is the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite women runners. Designed specifically for women’s feet, these lightly-cushioned, almost indestructible socks are a blend of wool and synthetic fibers, allowing them to breathe well and effectively manage moisture. These socks are cut so that they rise just above the cuff of low-cut hiking or running shoes.
Honey Stinger Organic Energy Gels are sure to be a hit when included in the holiday stockings of health-conscious runners. Long-distance runners love the low weight and easy use of energy gels when on the trail and these honey-based gels are a gluten-free alternative to other energy sources. Available in a variety of flavors, these gels pack the calories, minerals and electrolytes that adventuresome runners need.
Vigor AF Polarized sunglasses from Native Eyewear are a great stocking-stuffing option for stylish runners, offering great fit and sleek looks as well as UV- and glare-reducing eye protection. Interchangeable lenses accommodate different lighting conditions while non-slip temples and an adjustable nose pad give a secure fit. The thermoplastic frames are lightweight and durable with integrated vents to encourage airflow and decrease fogging and condensation, making for a clear view of the path ahead.
