Boot camp on The High Line was awesome this summer, but don't let the crisp September air drive you back into the gym! Stay warm and fit this fall with these four fashionable and functional transition coats for exercising in the great outdoors. After all, wouldn't you rather gaze at the colorful autumn leaves than ogle at the girl two treadmills over?
Brooks LSD Lite Jacket II
Reputed for their unrivaled running gear, Brooks steps out of the box with their LSD Lite Jacket II, the semi-fitted zip-up which can keep you warm and toasty on a cool morning jog, brisk hike or bike ride. Unfurl the "roll-and-stow" hood as the thermometer begins to drop, and then tuck it away again when spring rolls back around. Brooks' popular jacket is both water- and wind-resistant and comes in a rainbow of colors. The ultra-light shell weighs a mere 4.3 ounces, making it perfect for traveling.
Beyond Yoga Original Jacket
We've been obsessing over rooftop yoga lately, so you can imagine how giddy Beyond Yoga's Original Jacket makes us. Continue to practice your flow in open-air studios or at a nearby park with this classic collared coat, available in a neutral palate of white, black, navy and gray. The slim-fit zippered jacket offers plenty of flexibility, which is important when contorting your body into a variety of yogic poses. As yours truly can attest, it also contains enough insulation for a frosty November jog.
Adidas' Original Windbreaker is a new-school hoodie with the same old-school vintage aesthetic we've come to love and expect from the timeless sporty brand. The lightweight windbreaker zips from navel to neck, features an adjustable hood, and comes in two electrifying colors-clear mint and radiant pink. It's a must-have for any fitness fanatic who refuses to rack up miles on indoor gym equipment or look anything less than fabulous when breaking a sweat.
Nike Full-Zip Hoodie
Polyester jackets aren't for everyone, in which case we present to you the plush Nike Full-Zip Hoodie-a formfitting sweatshirt made of 100 percent cotton French terry. Nike's snug sweatshirt boasts a double-layer hood for added warmth and protection from the elements, as well as a zipper that extends all the way up to the chin for those extra blustery days. Best of all, a specially designed cord-management pocket allows you to store your headphone wire so it doesn't interfere with your workout.
