by Cristina Goyanes
What you wear can make all the difference between an enjoyable cold-weather run and a bitter battle with the elements. These pieces will keep you a happy camper.
Ace of Base
Made with stretch knit, the North Face women's long-sleeve RDT V-neck ($45) wicks moisture fast to help skin stay dry in the cold.
Frigid days call for a midlayer: fleece-lined Under Armour Cozy Half Zip ($55).
Are you a night runner? Glass beading on the Nike Allover Flash Jacket ($450) keeps you truly illuminated.
The Brooks Ghost 6 GTX ($140) are outfitted with Gore-Tex, so snow won't turn shoes soggy.
Strategically placed compression fabric lets the Adidas Supernova Long Tights ($65) move with you.
The Magic Touch
Touch-screen-friendly tips on the Columbia Precision Touch Gloves ($35) make it easier to work your smartphone without exposing fingers.
Made with 800-fill goose down, the Nike Aeroloft Vest ($180) warms your core without overheating you.
Thumbholes and a high collar on the Moving Comfort Foxie Half Zip ($98) offer coverage to exposed areas.
The ceramic lining in the Under Armour Infrared Tactical Leggings ($55) absorbs and retains body heat.
Although the Gore-Tex-covered New Balance 910s ($135) are for trails, their nubby soles work well on snow, too.
