repeat all the previous posts plus I have some hi vis clothing....a light jacket, a vest, a vented wicking tee...since most of my runs are in traffic (apparently didn't listen to my mommy) I try to make sure I can be seen! Oh and pepper spray for unfriendly encounters of the 2 and 4 legged variety.

Oh excellent point, Mike! I have dog tags with all of my essential info from RoadId.com that I wear every single time I go running even for a short time. On top of that since I run alone, I ALWAYS take my cell phone...ALWAYS.
Think of it this way...COTTON IS ROTTEN...when it comes to running. If you have ever become soaked with sweat with a cotton tshirt it feels horrible. So wicking wicking wicking...there is no better way to go!
yes "Tech T-s" "wicking stuff" in cold weather mizuno has run gear including gloves hats socks, that heat up when wet, so when youre out braving the elements ans sweating in the below zero temp, the fabric heats up
I tried wearing a cotton T once during a long run and it felt like was carrying 10 pounds when wet, nt to mention the friction factor is worse

So aside from good shoes, what sort clothes/gear do people use to run outside? It seems easier in the warm weather, where you can probably just wear some work out pants and a t-shirt, but what about if it's slightly rainy or chilly or breezy? I see people running in bulking coats around here and think that can't possibly be comfortable...
