On those colder days, you’ll want a good pair of gloves that still allows you to switch to a different song. These windproof, cold weather gloves can bring warmth without being bulky even in single-digit temperatures.
Unless you are lucky enough to live somewhere warm year round, chances are you’ll be bundling up for the coming months. A good pair of gloves can help, but for the coldest days, nothing beats an electric hand warmer. Our top pick is the USB-rechargeable Ocoopa. Its shape is easy to grasp, and its battery lasts 15 hours. Most runners won’t mind swapping between hands, but this is a 2-pack so that you’ll always have a backup charged and ready.
Some runners prefer silence. However, many do not. If you are more musically inclined, you’ll want a pair of earbuds that withstand sweat while staying in place and not falling loose.

These noise-canceling headphones also have a transparency listening mode, which runners can use for conversation or increased situational awareness.
