2011 Holiday Gift Guide For Runners

Mountain Hardwear Effusion Power Jacket, $150

A winter running jacket, at its best, is breathable, weather resistant, stretchy, reflective, warm, light, and quiet.  In other words, it is a cloaking device by which you won’t notice the weather or even that you have it on in the first place.  The Effusion Power Jacket ($150) is that magical softshell piece and it accomplishes that feat through zoned construction, a form-fitting cut, built-in half-gloves and thumb loops, DWR finish and a windproof, water-resistant face fabric. http://www.mountainhardwear.com
