This is part of a series called “Giftworthy,” my ideas for gifts based on things I use and love. Every other day in December (through the 25th), I’ll be posting a new item, and I’ll finagle a short-term discount on that item from the great company who makes it. Of course they are happy to play along, which is part of why they are so great. Feel free to check out the others in the series. The discount codes are good through December 25th. Thanks! Enjoy!

Wallace Jacket

Named after middle distance rockstar Lauren Wallace



The Wallace Jacket’s innovative design looks cool, sure, but having roomier sleeves near the trunk allows more flow of body heat from the core to the extremities. It moves freely and protects against the weather really well. Most people I know seem to be buying it in “dew” which is a light neutral color, but I prefer the “charcola.” It looks like the kind of fabric that might make crinkle sounds because of the shine but it is a quiet ride. I think if you are between sizes on jackets, and don’t plan to wear it over a sweatshirt, I would size down on this one.

Perfect Gift For

  • A runner facing lots of rain
  • Your friend who never brings enough layers
  • That friend who is upping her running game, and wants to “warm up” properly.
  • Buddy who hikes in all weather.
  • You.
