Don’t you love it when you find a new piece of running gear that really works for you?
Maybe it’s because it’s so comfortable, maybe it helps you run better, or maybe it’s just the fact that you think it makes you look cool.
I own way more running gear than I need, and I can honestly say I’m satisfied with most of it. If I’m not, then I donate it because I know I’ll never wear it.
But still, there are definitely the favorites, those items that I always pick first.
Do you have favorites you always use or wear? Any recommendations?

I love my Spibelt for carrying my phone and keys and my Yurbuds for women which are so comfy. I tend to go for Brooks shoes, currently the Pure Flow 2 and am quite fond of Under Armour kit, especially winter base layers.
I need to try Under Armour just because I’ve heard very good things and never owned any.
I stock up on it when I go to the US on holiday. Some great kit available and it lasts really well.
GU gel all the way…they make a salted caramel flavor now, if you’re into that sort of thing.
I’ve heard its the best… I haven’t seen it in Israel yet but will look around. My favorites are Espresso Love and Chocolate Outrage.
My fuel belt is my best friend on my long lonely runs.
I can see how someone would get attached (figuratively speaking) to it.
I’m not the greatest person to ask this question, as I don’t have a huge budget for running gear, but I love my racing flats (Saucony Grid Type A5s). They work well for me and my particular pronation, terrain, and mileage, but I’m always willing to consider other gear. Thanks for sharing your recommendations!
There’s a huge cult following for Saucony running shoes here in Israel. I’ve never tried them but would definitely consider them.
Thanks for sharing! I especially love Yurbuds Inspire for Women. And I am currently really digging their phone case so I can run w my phone in my hand instead of a ‘bulky’ carrier. (I’m super short so everything is bulky on me.)
I didn’t know they had phone cases, will keep that in mind if I ever need one (currently I’m not running with my phone).
Thanks for sharing! A great reference!
Thank you. 🙂
You can never have too much running gear! I love anything UnderArmor 🙂
I’ve heard great things, but have yet to try anything from them.
I have so much running kit I love, Hoka, Suunto Ambit 2, my beautiful Ultimate Directions run vest and a thousand other things! I however, don’t donate, I’ll wear stuff regardless of whether it suits – I just don’t wear it as much 🙂
The vest looks nice.. I’ve seen those.. Is it comfortable to run with it?
Very comfortable and they’ve just released version 2 which looks more durable but as with all these things you have to try them to make sure they fit you, nothing worse than uncomfy kit over 50miles 😉
It does look like a better alternative than a belt… (to me) nothing beats running as gear free as possible, but for very long distances it’s just not an option.
Bodyglide! Long runs on a Sunday would be a painful experience without it
Oh yeah.. that’s definitely always on my bag… good suggestion! Don’t know how much I love it, but it’s a necessity for sure.
