I recently had the chance to check out some new gear from Nathan Sport. From hydration to night running, they know running and they have you covered for your run. There are so many great fall and even winter races, so as you start to dig into your training, now is a perfect time to make sure you have the gear you need for your training and leading up to race day! Some of my gear has seen its better days and there are always things that I "didn't know I needed" that I discover along the way. In order to gear up and take on my miles today, the team at NATHAN sent me some pretty sweet gear. Y'all know that I have been complaining (and whining) about summer running over the past few months and how much I am looking forward to fall running, so I was pumped to receive some pretty sweet gear to help me stay safe and visible on my evening runs this fall and winter.
Headlamps serve multiple purposes including lighting the way for the runner and also putting light on yourself so others can see you. The Neutron Fire is a lightweight runner headlamp that illuminates several colors via 115 lumen LED lights. The Neutron also features five lighting modes to give runners versatility on the run (low, medium, high, sprint, & strobe). – with a maximum burn time of 30+ hours. It is weather resistant and will keep working if you’re caught in a rainstorm.
I don't know about you, but as much as I try to run with as little as possible, there are always things that I need to carry. Phone, car keys, cash, fuel, ID, medicine/inhaler, and the list goes on and on. The Zipster Waist Belt has four pockets, two zippers around the tubular belt that can hold just about anything that you need to carry with you on the run. I will be honest, at first I was nervous about how the belt would fit and if it would be a nuisance while running. Nope! Everything held is place and it doesn't bother me at all including phones in size up to iPhone 8 Plus.
Most people think of running lights as a way for them to see, but in fact, making yourself seen is just as important. Over the years, I have seen a lot of different running gadgets but I haven't seen anything quite like the LightSpur RX before.
Mag Strobe (MSRP: $14.99)
With fall right around the corner, night (or at least dusk) running will become more of a regular for runners. While safety in general while running is important, safety while running in the dark is even more important. Making sure that you are visible to cars as well as other runners is one of the most important safety points for runners at night. Most runners just think of lights and light-colored clothing to increase visibility, however there are additional measures you can take like the Mag Strobe.
The Mag Flash is a magnetic clip-on reflective patch that adds illumination and reflective safety to your run, walk, ride, etc. The Mag Strobe is super easy to use and just simply "clips on" via magnets to your shirt, running belt, vest, etc and adds additional visibility to you in an instant. There are also three different light options including a fast strobe, slow strobe and steady light which are produced with a battery with 35+ battery life.
Chroma Steel 17oz Ombre Bottle (MSRP: $19.99)
NATHAN Sports is very well known for their running hydration systems including handhelds, hydration belts, and packs. Hydration is important not only on the run, but also before and after your workouts as well. The Chroma Steel bottle is a double-wall insulated stainless steel bottle (BPA and lead-free) that keeps liquids cold for 24 hours and hot liquids hot for 6 hours. With other benefits such as condensation/sweat-free, cup holder friendly, and fits ice cubes, this is a great bottle to have handy for your favorite pre or post-run beverage in the car for you.
Run Laces (MSRP $7.99)
Ever have that shoe that won't stay tied? Wasted valuable seconds in a race or transition fooling around with laces? The NATHAN Run Laces are perfect for a variety of athletes from runners to walkers to triathletes and even kids and elderly who just hate or can't tie their shoe laces. The fastening system keeps your shoes laced secure and tight with one simple movement.
