Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

Tempted to swap your morning run for a cosy lie-in? Not with this jacket, says the co-founder of the Lunges and Lycra blog

Winter is my favourite time of year for running – crisp, sunny days, crunching through golden leaves, bonfire smoke in the air… That said, the dark nights and cold drizzly mornings are a bit less romantic. That’s why a running jacket is my cold-weather must-have – the right kit makes dragging myself away from the duvet just that bit easier. This lightweight style with a removable hood is ideal for long weekend runs and keeping you warm on the way to track sessions. Thumbholes keep hands toasty but leave fingers free for run selfies (come on, we all do it), plus it’s machine washable, so it’s perfect for everyday use. It also makes a great gift for fellow fitness fans. A true champion piece.
