Winter running tights are always a hot commodity because they’re hard to find, and the good ones tend to sell out quickly and not get restocked. How do I know this? Because almost every year, I wait too late in the season to shop for a pair, and the selection is always picked over and I have a hard time finding my size.
Well, not this year! The second I saw the Rainier Reflective Tight on the Athleta website, I popped a pair into my cart. And guess what!?! They’re fully stocked from XXS to 3X, and they also come in petite and tall sizes.
These are seriously some of the best winter running tights I’ve tried, plus the camo print is right on trend, and I love the flattering seaming details. They’re specifically designed for high impact outdoor workouts in cold weather — nice and thick with a soft, brushed interior and a wind-resistant exterior.
Plus, they have reflective details for those pre-dawn runs and several zip pockets to stash your essentials. If you need any more convincing, read through the 23 five-star reviews.
If you’re in the market for a good pair of winter running tights for yourself or someone on your holiday shopping list, grab a pair of these right now because I don’t expect them to be fully stocked for long.
This tank is my favorite for gym workouts and summer running. It has a comfortable seamless design with good chest coverage and a silicone band along the bottom that keeps it from riding up during high impact workouts.
Athleta’s Cozy Karma Asym Pullover also makes a great Christmas gift for an active person on your shopping list… or a treat for yourself. It’s plush and soft and warm, and the high neck keeps out the wind and cold, while the asymmetrical zip makes it easy to get on and off. The crossover design and high-low hem are flattering and add interest.
Also check out the Cozy Karma 1/4 Zip Hoodie. It’s made with the same oh-so-cozy fabric, and it has a more traditional quarter zip neck and subtle high-low hemline.
These sweatshirts are perfect for outdoor workouts, layering over a tank on your way to and from the gym, or throwing on to hang out at home when you want to be comfortable and cozy. Both are available in a wide range of sizes; I’m wearing a small, for reference.
If you need some smaller active gift ideas for stocking stuffers or Secret Santa gifts, the Flurry Reflective Gloves are are lightweight and soft with reflective details, and they’re touchscreen compatible.
I also appreciate the clip to hold them together when not in use. I’ve wasted more time than I care to count, trying to find an errant glove before heading out for my morning run.
And this cute pom pom beanie would make a nice gift for the teens and college-aged girls on your list. It comes in two sizes, and a bunch of fun colors and classic neutrals.
From cozy must-haves to workout essentials, Athleta has tons of quality gifts for the women and girls on your shopping list this holiday season.
