10 OUTDOOR RUNNING ITEMS YOU NEED TO GET OUTSIDE

Whether you train for races or just love to casually run because it feels good, there’s probably at least one piece of gear you never leave the house without. Maybe it’s your favorite pair of socks that never give you blisters, or the seamless underwear you can wear with any pair of shorts, or the perfect tank that doesn’t chafe. Having the right running gear makes a huge difference, no matter if you head out for one mile or 26.2.

For this year’s SELF Healthy Living Awards, we tested hundreds of athlete- and trainer-approved apparel and gear to find the best of the best in each category. The experts we consulted told us what counts when it comes to running gear: lightweight, seamless, and sweat-wicking fabrics, sunnies that don’t fog up or slip, and 360 degrees of reflectivity.

Here are our testers’ top 10 picks.

RYU’S VAPOR CREW NECK TEE FOR WOMEN

Testers said the seamless knit fabric was “insanely stretchy for such a quick-drying shirt.” The strategically placed mesh zones keep the air moving around you and help wick away sweat, and the antimicrobial silver salt treatment on the fabric prevents stink. “My last technical tee seemed to smell after just five washes, but I’ve worn this one countless times, and never have to worry about smelling sweaty before I’ve even begun class,” one tester shared.
