After a good workout, you’ll be covered in sweat, exhausted, and feeling fantastic. Believe it or not, the clothes you wear contribute greatly to the quality of your workout.
Not only does your workout gear affect your exercise routine, it also affects the quality of your life (because let’s be honest, you’re wearing those clothes outside the workout too). Whether you are crushing it on course, sweating out a Tough Mudder challenge, lounging around, or running errands, the gear you wear matters more than you give it credit for.
For that reason, we put together a list of all the pieces you need for yourself and your friends this holiday season to take you to the next level. Treat yourself to something cozy and gift your favorite Mudder with something they’ll love to wear to their next ten seasons.
Here’s a list of our top ten favorites we absolutely cannot live without.
If you’ve been in the Tough Mudder community longer than five minutes, you’ve heard about Dryrobe®. Generous sleeves for unrestricted movement while keeping you warm and protected from the elements. Ideal for stretches, pre-event warm-ups, and post-event cool downs. Off-the-course, many Mudders keep this must-have fleece lined field jacket in their car for tailgating, camping and keeping warm after any outdoor activity
2. Women’s Joggers
Cozy, comfy, and cool. Layer with a pair of leggings for added warmth or wear them lounging around the house while you binge your favorite TV series (we recommend World’s Toughest Race, now streaming on Prime video)
3. Men’s Joggers
With winter days coming in strong, we’re all going to be wearing a lot of sweatpants this season. Might be time for another pair, eh? Besides, sweatpants are now acceptable workwear, some might say “Zoom couture” if you know what we mean
4. Puffy Vest
Stuffed with down feathers, this puffy will keep you core warm while always allowing maneuverability and freedom for your arms. For added warmth, pair it with a rain jacket or windbreaker. The layers will keep you warm on cold mornings, while allowing you to shed layers as you heat up.
5. Sleek Rain Jacket
Pair it with the puffy vest and you will be golden on windy days, rainy days, and cold weather days. And have we mentioned how stylish this raincoat looks?
6. Cozy Hoodie
Comfy hoodies and sweatshirts are a must for winter workouts, loungewear, and active rest days. But you already knew this..
7. Comfy Sweatshirt
8. Transition Wrap
Don’t be a newbie. A common mistake is prepping well for the event and forgetting to pack a change of clothes, a place to put your wet, muddy clothes, and a way to get home without muddying up the car. The Transition Wrap solves at least one of these issues, providing a personal changing room and a cover for your car seat. Outside race season it’s useful too. Camping, swimming, skiing? Anything that requires changing clothes, this handy wrap gives you a place to change when a room isn’t available.
9. Stainless Steel Water Bottle
Want your water to stay cold much longer? A stainless steel water bottle is the best way to go.
10. And, (of course) Socks
Because nothing says “I care about my casual acquaintances” better than a pair of funky socks.
