What do you think of when you think “Eddie Bauer?” Comfy slippers worn by a fire, fur-lined down vests and quality flannel shirts, right? Well, now you can think of Eddie Bauer when you dream about running because EB performance wear is here!
Here are just a few of the many items offered (and the ones I tested):
First up is the Hangfire Pro Hooded Jacket (MSRP: $129).
Living in Colorado where mother nature can be an unpredictable bitch, I have a wide assortment of running clothes. One item that I lacked, however, was a running jacket that worked for very cold temps (under 20 degrees), but had some breathability. Enter the Hangfire jacket. I tried this for the first time when we had an arctic blast of snow and zero degree temps (and when I did my best to look like a boy).
The jacket is form fitting, yet is easily worn over multiple layers. It has a fleece-lined hood that can be worn under a helmet for cycling, skiing, etc. When fully zipped, it has a high neck that can protect the bottom of the face. I would highly recommend this jacket as your go-to cold weather running choice. You really only need one quality item like this, so why not get the best?
Next, I’ve got the Incendiary 1/4 Zip Pullover (MSRP: $70). This is a wicking base layer that is designed to be worn against the skin to generate heat. This is designed to have a snug fit that does not impair mobility. In terms of aesthetics, I really love the length of this pullover. Some running tops can be short and hit just below my waistband. This one goes a few inches longer, allowing for greater warmth but also covering my butt, which no one needs to see anyway.
It is hard to tell from the picture, but there is a subtle striped design on this pullover, which gives it a unique flair. It also comes in green, bright blue and plum. In regards to size, this could fit me a bit tighter, so I should have gone with x-small, not small. Keep that in mind if you order.
This is my best effort to look like I am a magazine model since I will never be one.
Also pictured above are Eddie Bauer’s Movement Leggings (MSRP: $75). These running tights are comfy and allow for excellent mobility. There are no strangely placed seams that hit your lady parts awkwardly and painfully like the time I wore THESE. While these tights are not, IMHO, designed for freezing cold weather, they do well in temps down to 25 or so degrees. If you need a pair of durable, wicking, machine-washable tights, these are for you.
Lastly, we’ve got the Power Stretch Beanie (MSRP: $16). This would be a great stocking stuffer. This is a lighter weight hat with a hole in the back for your ratty pony tail (well mine is ratty). It is warm, yet not heavy and fits snugly on the head. A bonus is that it’s got reflective tape for visibility and is machine washable.
Bottom line – quality performance wear with a stylish flair (like that rhyme?).
