What Do I Wear For Winter Running?

A Reader Asks: Winter Running Wear?

FitSugar reader aprilmelissa12 needs some advice on cold weather gear and posed this question in our RunningSugar community group. Share your advice in the comments section below.

I'm new to running and I'm trying to figure out what gear I need for cold weather running. I live in San Francisco, which has a somewhat temperate winter. No snow, but we still need to turn the heat on (especially at night, yeesh). Do I need base layers and outer shells, etc. (I'm a novice when it comes to runner's gear as well)? Are some fabrics better than others? Are there brands you prefer?

Thank you, thank you everyone. I appreciate your thoughts.
