Christmas tunes are playing in every store, your risk of frostbite has spiked, and even the neighbor’s Shih Tzu is wearing a festive sweater vest. There’s no way around it… it’s winter, and it’s all about the eggnog, hot-tubbing and cold training sessions. We were hesitant to head into the chill this year, until we met the Sugoi Firewall 180 Pant. This pant will equip you to tackle training sessions in the most brutal conditions. Here’s what we love:
The interior of this pant is fully brushed, which gives it a fuzzy feel reminiscent of your favorite sweats, but without the bulk. The peached interior ups the warmth factor, so you’ll stay nice and toasty even in frigid temps.
Waterproof Shell Fabric
The exterior fabric is windproof to keep the icy gales off your legs as you work out in wintry conditions. Although the fabric is highly technical, it maintains a soft and flexible feel, giving you great range of motion to power through the miles.
The elastic waistband hits below the natural waist and has side Velcro tabs that allow you to get an extra-secure fit, so these pants won’t slide down as you run.
Two large front zip pockets give you ample room to store an mp3 player, pair of gloves/arm warmers or other essentials on the run. Lockdown zippers with guards will keep zippers from bouncing up and down.
Winter means it’s not just getting colder, it’s getting darker too, so we were stoked that Sugoi was generous with the reflectivity on these pants. Reflectivity around pockets, behind knees and down the sides and front of these pants will help you be seen by motorists when you’re running in low light.
