A Joyride Review & Brooks Running Stocking Stuffer Giveaway!

brooks-585Want to go on a joyride? Hey, us, too — especially if by “joyride” you mean an awesome winter run plus a sah-weet Brooks Running giveaway! (And, remember, we’re a brand ambassador for them because we
L-O-V-E them so much.)

Joyride Beanie and Mitten Review

I recently got to try two Joyride pieces from Brooks: The Joyride Beanie and the Joyride Mitten. And, guys, winter running accessories just don’t get any better. We’re talking details. DETAILS.

Like, for example, on the Joyride Beanie ($28), it’s lightweight and seems like it wouldn’t keep you that warm. But it does! Without keeping you too warm once you’ve been running for awhile. (You know how that is, right? You’re freezing when you start your run and a mile or two in need to peel off all the layers?) The secret is in the DriLayer Sheep-ish wool blend that wicks moisture and helps regulate body temperature (plus beats odors). And I absolutely adore the slouchy fit of the hat, too. I have a small head so pretty much any stocking cap I wear slouches — but not in a cool way. This one slouches in a cool way.

And then there are the matching Joyride Mittens. I can see how you might see the price tag on these — $35 — and think it’s a little steep, but these are quality mittens, y’all. Made from that same fabric blend, they keep your hands warm, are totally soft and have an open mesh palm that allows ventilation. Plus, they’re totally tech friendly, so you can keep your mittens on while Instagramming the wicked view you just saw on your run. (You know, a total must.)
