The Brooks® Women’s Streaker Long Sleeve is essentially everything a running shirt should be. The DriLayer® Burst fabric is breathable, elastic, and helps wick away sweat as well as environmental humidity. The top is the perfect top for autumn running. Insulating and warm, yet thin enough so that you don’t overheat once your heart rate increases. The Streaker is also great for layering, whether it acts as the base or top layer. The one desirable component the Streaker lacks is thumbholes. However, the elasticity of the material allows the wearer to pull the sleeves over their hands if needed. Not to mention, the design and color are fashionable, allowing the Streaker to double as a functional top to wear around town.

The Brooks® Women’s Threshold Running Tights might be one of the most well-constructed running tights on the market. First, the DriLayer® fabric allows for unrestricted movement; it does not stretch out or loosen excessively on the run, but stays snug. The tights are insulated and a bit thicker than your standard tight, which makes it most suitable for colder autumn and winter running. The length is also versatile. The tights can be pulled to the ankles in cold weather, or pushed up mid-calf if the temperatures are warmer. The Threshold tights also have four decent-sized pockets, two on the waistband, and one on each hip. Even without a zipper, the overlapping flaps on the hip pockets and the depth of the waistband pockets prevent items from falling out. Brooks® scored big with their Threshold Tight.
