AUTUMN BRINGS WITH IT COOLER TEMPERATURES, WETTER WEATHER, LESS DAYLIGHT. There might be more reason to carry gear and protect it than in the summer. 10 ITEMS, featured in a Competitor.com slideshow article, are designed to help you carry ‘stuff’. Included are: a performance t-shirt with several zippered pockets, waist-pack that comes with a soft flask, running shorts with multiple pockets, packable jacket with pockets, ‘strappy’ bra with a front pocket, short running skort with side and back pockets.
Clothes with sufficient stowing capacity are much-prized apparel. Sometimes additional carry space is needed. The slideshow includes gear that offers more ingenious ways to address this issue. I would like to try each:
-Ultimate Direction Fastdraw 600 hand-carry water bottle with a small ’backpack’ on it to carry a good-sized phone and a few other small items.
-Oiselle Roga Hat with a small, head-hugging zippered compartment
-UnderFuse Plus iron-on small pocket, recommended for the front of tights or compression shorts or tights.
-Armband by Sprigs that stretches to accommodate a phone of any size!
The item I am most interested in trying (it is ordered) is the Amphipod Xinglet Pocket Plus that helps runners position a phone in front, mid-chest, to use the flashlight or video function via a clear window in a protective pocket. This also seems like an ideal place to simply carry a phone for easy access.
The image shown in the article pictures the gray/silver version. There is also a neon green “hi-viz” color. BOTH color models have a good amount of brilliant, highly reflective material on the adjustable straps, a BONUS SAFETY feature. If this product performs as advertised, it seems like a real winner for fall running/walking in low light conditions! See it BELOW, and on the GEAR LOVE page, as well as the Sprigs armband.
