The packable jacket features an adjustable hood and hem and is made of anti-snag nylon that is both wind- and water-resistant.
2. Pearl Izumi Women’s Fly SS Top
This semi-form-fitting top in a lightweight, soft and moisture-transferring fabric will make this a go-to for wet runs; the black color keeps it from being see-through.

These shorts feature a built-in brief for a chafe-free performance and a lightweight woven fabric that will wick sweat and rain alike.
4. Balega Ultra Light No Show Socks
With elastic support in both the arch and heel, these low-profile socks will stay on your feet even in wet conditions.
5. 2XU Run hat
Available in several different colors, this cap is made from 100 percent nylon and will shield your face from rain while you run.
6. Incipio Performance Armband (for iPhone 6)
Sleek, lightweight and comfortable, this exercise armband is water-resistant and features a key pocket and touch-responsive window.
7. ZOOT Solana ACR
Featuring road-gripping lugs and a weather-resistant treatment, this neutral shoe is great on wet pavement.
8. Asics Storm Shelter Jacket
Fully lined and breathable, this seam-sealed jacket is wind- and water-resistant and features 360-degree reflective features.
9. Adidas Supernova Tee
Designed for long-distance comfort, this long-sleeve shirt features ventilation for steamy rain runs and thumb-hole cuffs for cool-weather days.
10. Brooks Essential 3.5” Split Short
Less fabric means less to get wet and ultimately less chafing. The reflectivity will also increase visibility on overcast days.
