Rabbit Defroster Velocity Tights

For chilly climate operating the place a easy pair of tights isn’t sufficient, rabbit presents the rabbit Defroster Velocity Tights ($135), and our buns and thighs are happy. The semi-compressive fleece-lined, full-length tights cowl our ankles fully and have a {smooth} end that resists gentle precipitation. We favor these from about 10 to 35 levels Fahrenheit (F) and easily add a down skirt at temperatures under this to remain cozy. They breathe effectively however do get a bit sweaty above 35F.

True to rabbit’s dedication to perform, these tights characteristic 5 pockets — the roomy decrease again reflective zipper pocket for a key, card, or small snack; my two very favourite stash pockets on the higher, lateral thighs that maintain a mobile phone, extra snacks, or gloves with confidence; and two flat-lying pockets on the within of the waistband within the entrance for these further gels.

Us iRunFar rabbit fanatics are divided in that whereas a few of us favor the next waist, some a lot favor the mid-rise of the Defroster Velocity Tights over something high-waisted, however the inside drawstring may be very skinny and barely much less snug when tightened down. I’d like to see a wider elastic piece right here so the drawstring wouldn’t have to do the heavy lifting.

Whereas the medium is the appropriate dimension for us within the legs — our calves and kneecaps are apparently too highly effective for the smalls — the waist and hip portion does have a tendency to slip down into the thighs after about 45 minutes, requiring a shimmy and pull-up.

Though this happens extra subtly with these than different rabbit tights, I do want this facet of the match was a bit extra dialed in throughout the model, however solely within the tights/capris. I’ve zero points with the match of the free shorts, free joggers, and seven-inch tight leggy shorts. For cozy winter operating, the Defroster Velocity Tights may also help you zip alongside, however maybe contemplate sizing down if you happen to’re between sizes.

So spectacular.

The PFC-free, waterproof, smooth-faced end resists gentle snow, and the 77% polyester/23% spandex physique breathes rather well ─ at the same time as we work up some warmth on the hills. Sweat is depraved away speedily and dries in a flash, so within the Colorado local weather, it’s an ideal chilly climate choice.

The Fast n’ Match hood is produced from a a lot thinner 89% polyester/11% spandex materials, similar to the rabbit EZ Tee Lengthy Sleeve, which principally means it’s so gentle that you simply don’t wish to take it off.

The final sensible element we love about this piece is the presence of two thumb holes on every sleeve. The usual placement permits the lengthy sleeve to cowl the again of the hand, leaving the opposite gap as a attainable watch-viewing window. However if you happen to select the second thumb gap, the cuff then covers many of the fingers as effectively, which is so good for the start of runs, the place you form of need a second pair of gloves, however you recognize you received’t want them in half-hour.

All in all, if you happen to run within the chilly or just run chilly, the Cocoon 2.0 is an incredible efficiency hooded fleece with further advantages!

You merely can’t go mistaken with a efficiency plaid with pearl snap (minus the pearl) — even one tester’s teenager loves the lads’s model.

The semi-relaxed match is simply lengthy sufficient within the arms, hips, and throughout the again that we will match a skinny baselayer beneath and nonetheless have loads of room to present ourselves a hug, wrangle fats bike handlebars, or high-five one another after scoring our favourite croissants.

A contact of merino wool (4%) added to the 54% recycled polyester and 42% Thermolite polyester makes for a calmly heat, breathable, but considerably wind-resisting layer that dries shortly after a path run and appears polished on the coffeehouse afterward. The flannel dries comparatively shortly if we throw a operating pack over it and generate some sweat.

Like their authentic rabbit EZ Jogger, the rabbit EZ Joggers 2.0 is manufactured from the identical Fast n’ Match material (89% polyester, 11% spandex.) Regardless of being {smooth} as butter, the material itself holds up comparatively effectively.

Whereas the unique EZ Jogger match fairly true to dimension, the two.0 feels a bit roomier within the butt and bulkier within the pockets. We examined a ladies’s medium. If you happen to are likely to vacillate in any respect between sizes, contemplate sizing down right here!

Whereas the addition of the zip pocket requires a couple of further layers of material, it additionally considerably will increase the performance of those joggers for day after day operating, exercises, and many others., giving your key fob and bank card a secure place to trip.

The mid-rise elastic waistband has an exterior drawstring. Regardless of the roomier match, we haven’t had any points with motion within the waistband mid-run. The 2 entrance pockets have ample room to stuff semi-bulky paraphernalia, telephones, socks, buffs… a kitten.

If cruising round and never eager to lose the contents of your pockets, nevertheless, revert again to the zip on the appropriate facet, which additionally presents respectable capability. Like lots of rabbit’s merchandise, the EZ Joggers 2.0 is marketed as “fast drying.” Whereas I haven’t subjected my joggers to torrential downpour, they’ve endured some gentle rain and have subsequently dried remarkably effectively.

Whereas we hesitate to make direct comparisons with different manufacturers, the texture of those reminds us quite a lot of the favored Vuori Efficiency Jogger, which we included in our Vuori Ladies’s Efficiency Attire evaluate.

We’ve been identified to throw these on very first thing within the morning and full each day by day exercise in them: operating, lifting, lounging, errands, kiddo shuttling, informal eating, and extra! They’re simply that snug.

Rabbit EZ Tights

The rabbit EZ Tights ($88) and rabbit EZ Tights Excessive Rise ($88) are a form-fitting model made out of rabbit’s unbelievably gentle Fast n’ Match materials. These tights are 7/8 size, hitting most simply above the ankle. The addition of the high-rise match is a good choice for these of us whose legs deem us high-waisted.

I’ve traditionally struggled with rabbit’s extra conventional mid-rise operating tights, resulting from motion within the waistband, and marvel if a high-rise rendition of the velocity tights would assist in resolving this little downside for these of us preferring that match.

Rabbit Outrun

The magical fashion-function-fit-comfort medley of perfection we’ve found in rabbit attire continues to present itself within the rabbit Outrun ($85) lengthy sleeve high. The Outrun is a mix of 86% recycled polyester with 14% wool, and may be worn as a base layer or solely layer.

Rabbit has maintained its repute for dishing up undeniably gentle materials, regardless of infusing this one with wool. All of us love wool’s magical means to maintain us heat even when moist, however none of us love when it’s itchy.

Southern Oregon’s common winter lows like to hang around within the 30s F, making this the proper chilly climate “solely layer” nearly all of the time, for these of us right here or in related climates.

It was 22F the morning I made a decision to take this high for its maiden voyage, and after a protracted post-run thaw below a scorching bathe, I’ve determined to deal with it as a base layer (i.e. paired with one in all rabbit’s gentle jackets or vests) for temperraturess under freezing.

The thumb gap is a element that units this high other than the a lot beloved rabbit EZ Tee Lengthy Sleeve. There was a time and local weather in my life the place thumbhole caliber particulars had been exhaustively thought-about. Minnesota winters routinely put my wrists, ankles, eyeballs, and varied different susceptible patches of flesh vulnerable to frostbite. The element actually makes the sleeve to glove transition a seamless one.

Most rabbit clothes are to be machine-washed chilly and tumble dried on low. With the added wool, the corporate suggestion is to hold this one to dry. Tailor-made to suit effectively — by no means boxy, fussy, or clingy — this high is true to dimension, rides gentle, wicks sweat, dries quick, and is impossibly gentle.

Rabbit Treeline

The rabbit Treeline ($185) jacket has been my go-to climate, wind, and summit buddy for over a yr now, and I can fortunately echo the spherical of applause many others have left of their opinions of this layer.

This 66% nylon and 35% polyurethane jacket with sealed seams is rabbit’s first shell with waterproof and windproof capabilities, impressed by the UTMB path races.

UTMB requires one to hold a hooded jacket with a minimal waterproof score of 10,000 millimeters of water column (aka 10,000 Schmerber) and a moisture permeability score of 10,000 grams per sq. meter per 24 hours. With waterproof and moisture vapor permeability scores of 10k+, rabbit’s Treeline jacket meets UTMB’s minimal specs.

The Treeline is light-weight — at about six ounces for a ladies’s dimension medium — and dries shortly.

The jacket is true to dimension with a tailor-made match, together with elastic wrists, hemming, and an adjustable scuba-style hood. Reflective materials alongside the zipper helps us gentle up in low gentle. There’s only one chest pocket, sufficiently big to deal with most telephones, a couple of gels, or to pack up the jacket itself for simple stowing.

On a cool, blustery day with light-moderate rain, the Treeline performs fairly flawlessly. If you end up in a extra aggressive downpour, nevertheless, this svelte little quantity will moist out. In my temperate southern Oregon local weather, a lighter weight jacket with affordable breathability and waterproofing, just like the Treeline, is a fairly good resolution nearly all of the time the forecast requires precipitation.

If I had been headed into extra aggressive rain, particularly for a protracted length or at the next altitude, I would definitely contemplate taking safety with extra vital waterproofing.
