Fall is the ideal time to exercise outside—as long as you're ready for the weather. Sun, rain and cool temps are all equally likely, but they won't derail your routine if you invest in the right activewear. From windbreakers to water-resistant shoes, our favorite pieces have one thing in common: they're purpose-built to take on the elements, with materials that keep you comfortable and protected so you can focus on your workout. Check out our top picks for fall and gear up for your own outdoor action.
It might be chilly when you get started, so a
light jacket is a must. Performance fabrics with polyester offer the insulation
you need without extra weight. Top your outfit off with a ventilated version
like this—it locks in the warmth and keeps your interior airflow going.
If your goal is to hit the trail whether rain or shine, outfits like this make it easier. Weather-ready, quick-drying materials wick away moisture without restricting movement, and water-resistant shoes mean puddles aren't a problem.
Summer may be over, but sun protection is an all-season consideration. Along with your shades and sunscreen, look for tech fabrics with built-in UPF protection that can help block harmful UV rays.
