Not all leisure activities can literally save your life. Running can. The right running gear keeps you comfortable while you push yourself and is made of eco-friendly materials, while the wrong gear just makes you want to pack it in and take up one of those easy indoor hobbies. Build up your running gear with our picks for shorts, leggings, top, and a no-excuses outer layer that’ll inspire you to go the distance.
Alana Athletica Classic Leggings
Key Selling Point: Stay-put leggings that are never see-through made by a socially committed company.
Known for making activewear with an ethical bent, Alana Athletica promises to support, educate, and empower the women working in their Sri Lankan factories. Their Classic Legging has a high waistband with light compression that doesn’t bunch or roll. A silver ion finish banishes odors (in a non-toxic way). And there’s even a pocket at the back to keep necessities close by on a run.
Tentree inMotion Tank
Key Selling Point: A breathable tank offers light support for those easy run days.
Soft is the name of the game with the Tentree inMotion Tank. Made from recycled polyester, it’s designed for both running and yoga. The sleeveless modern crop gives it a fashion-conscious look—perfect for recovery days when you’re not running full tilt.
Tentree Nimbus Short Rain Jacket
Key Selling Point: A packable and lightweight outer layer to keep the weather from ruining your next run.
The Nimbus eliminates excuses when the clouds roll in thanks to its water-resistant and wind-blocking shell that also stretches as you move.

Koral Lustrous High-Rise Leggings
Key Selling Point: A premium fashion-forward take on leggings designed to last.
Billed as a luxe performance brand, Koral builds their athletic wear to last, wash after wash. The Lustrous High Rise Leggings are made from polyamide and Lycra, a fabric that won’t fade (and proves running can look as good as it feels). And they come in red, green, navy, camo, and black.

Here’s what you pull on when you want to go for a quick run. These mid-rise shorts are made from recycled nylon, so you can feel good about wearing them. The elastic waistband adds an extra layer of comfort, and they come in three colors, so you can stock up.
