Running on the frozen roads of New Hampshire
Lands’ End Activewear Performance Hoodie and Track Pants

Did you know that Lands’ End makes performance apparel for runners? It turns out they make more than just great pants and polo shirts. The Lands’ End Activewear line is worth a look. Lands’ End performance clothing is very comfortable, well-designed, and thoughtfully constructed with the needs of the runner in mind. Attention to detail and superior craftsmanship are the hallmarks of Lands’ End, and the Activewear line is no exception.

For sure, there are more technical brands out there. If I was traversing the peaks of the White Mountains, I’d probably be looking for a performance brand that specializes in poor weather conditions and rugged use. But, Lands’ End offers functional and comfortable clothing for everyday use as well as running.

Men’s Performance Hoodie

Who doesn’t like a good hoodie? This is great for warm-ups, cool-downs, cold weather runs, or just hanging out. The hood provides plenty of coverage and there are adjustable bungee cordlocks at the hips to keep the cold air out.

This jacket offer 5 pockets for storage. A chest pocket, two hip pockets, and two large internal pockets that I used to stow my hat and second pair of mittens 3 miles into my last long run. The hoodie is made from Polartec Power Stretch® fleece for resilient stretch, moisture wicking, breathability.

If you have discovered the convenience of wearing a vest for spring training, then you already know what I’m about to say. The vest is a great piece of clothing for those times when you want to keep your core warm, but don’t want the bulk of a jacket. This vest actually works really well with the Men’s Performance Hoodie.

The Lands’ End PrimaLoft Vest is made with quilted lining with 80-gram PrimaLoft insulation, has three zippered pockets, and an adjustable bungee at the hem. The flexible side panels move with your body on the run. And, when wet spring weather arrives, you’ll be ready with a water-repellent shell.

If you’ve ever run in track pants, you realize the importance of a good fit. I usually opt for running tights if it’s under 40º F outside. That’s because pants tend to bunch up in the wrong places, pull on the tops of my thighs, and generally distract me from my run.

So, when I forgot I was wearing track pants on my run, I knew these were good. They are made from a water-repellent, breathable, flexible fabric (94% nylon, 6% spandex) with distinctive vents behind the knee to encourage airflow. The drawstring allows for a comfortable fit at the waist, and the tapered legs add a nice style element.

  1. Holes for thumbs! YAY! Does the hoodie have an inside pocket and does it wash/dry easily?
