Brooks Winter Apparel Review – Matt


Mens Dash Long Sleeve Running Shirt


The Dash Long Sleeve Running shirt is a cuddly soft, lightweight option for those crisp between season runs, or as an added layer for colder days. The fabric is super soft and smooth and breathes well. Thumb hooks keep your sleeves down and and paired with the higher collar, the Dash will keep the cold air from sneaking in. We were impressed with the smooth feel and the overall comfort, and have been reaching for the Dash often as the weather has been cooling.

Note that the fit is loose, so take that into account when sizing.

Mens Rush 7″ Running Shorts


The Brooks Rush Running Shorts are a casual looking short with all of the comfort of a full featured running short with the styling and amenities of an everyday short. Smooth, comfortable liner keeps things in place and doesn’t chafe or irritate. Pockets abound on these shorts, with a back zippered ‘wallet’ style pocket, an internal key pocket that keeps your key close and safe, and full on, regular pockets on the side. While we never found a good use for the side pockets while running, they really came in handy for the wallet, keys and phone before or after the run (they may have also kept my hands warm on a few occasions). Spent 20+ hours during a race in these shorts and had zero problems.

With a 7″ length, the shorts are on the longer side. If you’re in the market for a multi purpose, full functioning running short, these are a fantastic option.
