What We're Training In: New Balance Heat Run Jacket Review

By Vic A.


A season favored by many runners and anyone else who can appreciate escaping the humidity of Summer (finally!). The air is cooler, crisp and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. Going from the lush green of Summer to the reds, oranges, browns, yellows of Fall is a transformation performance mother nature showcases that is quite the spectacle. 

Most of us are getting ready to put away the tank tops we wore during our Summer runs. It's time to break out the cool weather apparel. Philadelphia Runner recently received the newest line of New Balance men's and women's Fall apparel and wow! From the Windcheater Jacket to the Heat Half Zip, their fall running apparel is made for comfort on the go - just in time for the arrival chillier weather.

I had the opportunity to try out the NB Heat Run Jacket. I really like how light weight it is and how the fleece material traps in the heat to keep you warm while still wicking the sweat away. The color is sleek, cool and edgy. It has a nice athletic fit design but more importantly the jacket is wind and water resistant. The reflective strips on both arm sleeve are a nice safety feature for running earlier or later in the day, providing some extra peace of mind. The hood is the scuba design giving you a nice, close fit on your head and the zippered front pocket is a convenient feature for quickly stashing small items safely and securely.


Look good and feeling comfortable on the run or on the go this fall. Stop by our shops and check out the New Balance Heat Run Jacket and other great New Balance apparel.
