Last week I received a package from Brooks, with new stuff to try out. It was great! They sent me a beanie for cold weather running, a pair of socks and a reflective hat.
I love the color of this hat! You can't see the gap in the back for headphones, score.
I was hesitant about the socks (Infiniti Double Tabs) at first, mostly because they are the low cut kind and I normally go for the crew cut. I used them the other night for my short run, with lots of sprinting and jumping around (I don't know what those exercises are called, but you criss-cross your legs in front and then behind) and they were like butter. I would love to have more of these babies!
I also used the reflective hat, which I desperately needed. I don't have anything reflective or flashy for running when it's dark. I know this is unsafe, and something I can't continue. The hat was comfortable, wicked moisture and the sizing was easy to adjust. I wish the brim was smaller and more easily shaped, but this is definitely function over fashion.
