Under Armour must-have gifts for the male runner in your life
Runners can be super picky about the gear they use while conquering miles. Rightfully so, since the perfect picks can make or break a workout for both total beginners and elites. Whether the guy on your holiday list is breaking new records on his sprints or putting in the time running marathons, these fun, functional apparel, accessory, and tech items are exactly what he needs to feel unstoppable on the open road come the new year.
COLDGEAR® REACTOR RUN BALACLAVA
There are two things going on here that make the ColdGear Reactor Run Balaclava ($99.99 USD) his must-have layer for the cold. First, the ColdGear® Reactor fabric that keeps him warm but releases hot air as he gets going. Second, the built-in balaclava face mask with laser-perforated ventilation for the right amount of coverage and warmth, right when he needs it.
COLDGEAR® COMPRESSION LEGGING
ColdGear Compression Legging ($50 USD) will make him feel secure in more than just his average pace. Their ultra-tight, second-skin fit offers a locked-in feel, while the smooth, flatlock seam construction makes them totally chafe-free.
UA RUN GORE-TEX WINDSTOPPER JACKET
The UA Run Gore-Tex Windstopper Jacket ($71.99 USD) offers a sleek, iconic look complete with lightweight fabric for lasting comfort. Fend off even the nastiest winds with the help of Gore-Tex Windstopper panels, which offer just the right amount of breathability. Plus, secured zippered hand pockets keep his items safe in one place between hill repeats.
UA HOVR™ PHANTOM CONNECTED
This shoe takes his run to another level using UA’s Record Sensor technology, which connects seamlessly with the latest free MapMyRun app to give him detailed running metrics. Plus, the sneaker’s uber comfortable thanks to an anatomically designed, molded interior, super-plush knit collar, and layers of plush material. Simply put, the second he steps into the UA HOVR™ Phantom Connected ($140 USD), he’ll know why we call it a whole new running experience.
SPEEDPOCKET LINERLESS 6-INCH SHORT
The Speedpocket Linerless 6-inch Short ($45 USD) comes in seven different colorways and is a necessary staple for his weekly workout wardrobe. Made with four-way stretch and mesh side panels for added ventilation, he’ll be cool and comfortable no matter how many miles or reps are on his to-do list.
UA HOVR™ CGR LOW CONNECTED
Icy roads and freezing temperatures should never get in the way of a good run. That’s why we made the UA HOVR™ CGR Low Connected ($120 USD) with reliable traction and adaptive insulation that actually cools down when he heats up. Pair that with our digitally connected tech — which tracks, analyzes, and stores virtually every running metric to help him pick up the pace — and this shoe is a winter running must-have.
GORE-TEX WINDSTOPPER TIGHT
These may just be the ultimate pair of cold-weather tights.
Starting with the center-front waistband, where we’ve inserted our signature water-resistant, bounce-free Speedpocket that expands to help him keep his belongings totally secure.
Moving onto the built-in brief, which offers the added coverage and support he desires. Finish it off with Under Armour’s Windstopper technology, which delivers total protection from gusts without sacrificing breathability, the Gore-Tex Windstopper Tight ($150 USD) protects from even the harshest winter weather.
