When it comes to running jackets, style is secondary on my list. Unfortunately, the jackets that perform the best don't always make the transition to street. The minute I put on the Brooks Running Infiniti Anorak ($120), my boyfriend immediately commented on how cute I looked. But beneath all the stylish details like the ruching, a high collar, and a fitted silhouette is a jacket that also does the job.
The breathable material is wind- and waterproof and also has reflective paneling to help keep me safe on evening runs. There's a small pocket to hold belongings like keys or an ID card, and I love the thumbholes that are made of knit fabric to help keep the jacket in place and hands warm.
