When you’re traveling, it can be hard to keep up the same training routine you have at home. Whether it’s hard to wake up early on vacation, or you have to plan a new running route in a city with which you’re not very familiar, there are countless reasons to blow the whole thing off.
But when you pack great technical layering pieces that also look good, like the Icebreaker Tech Trainer Jacket and Tights, you may want to work harder to keep that routine going.
These two pieces are ideal for cold-weather running and training, and feature a hybrid construction of breathable merino wool and Lycra that’s soft, stretchy, and insulates well.
Across the front, shoulders, and upper arms of the jacket, zoned panels of lightweight, permeable Pertex Quantum Air fabric feature a DWR finish to repel light moisture and windy conditions. Zippered hand pockets store your phone and other small essentials, and the reflective center front zip is reflective in low light. Offset shoulder seams prevent chafing when you’re carrying a pack, and there’s a drop-tail hem for added coverage.
In the tights (called “pants” for the dudes’ version), the zoned panels of Pertex Quantum Air fabric are at the front. A zippered back stash pocked it big enough to store a key, card, or cash. The contoured waist has a low-profile internal drawcord to get the perfect fit, and the gusseted design allows for unrestricted range of motion.
The combination of the two pieces together looks sleek and are stylish enough to head to coffee or breakfast after your workout without making you worry that you look like you just rolled up after a run.
The women’s Tech Trainer Hybrid Jacket and Tights come in black and list for $190 and $160, respectively, on the Icebreaker site. The men’s Tech Trainer Hybrid Jacket and Pants come in black and list for the same prices on the Icebreaker site.
