We’re not sure who is hotter, Ragnarians decked out in only the finest of fashions or the blazing sun beating down our backs causing sweat to bead in all the wrong places.
Ragnarians are prepared, Ragnarians are fearless, and Ragnarians look good doing it! To help you be all that you can be, we have put together a summer gear guide to get you through anything races (or life) throw at you. Read on for our top picks from top to bottom.
Repping Ragnar has never been so comfortable! The soft mesh jersey is insanely comfy while the moisture transporting properties keep you nice and dry in that summer heat. It comes in three colors so you can wear them on repeat.
Nothing says breathable like the CRAFT Women’s Core Charge Rib Singlet. The light feels, semi-relaxed fit, and lack of sleeves will have you running like the wind no matter the summer heat.
Yeah this tee is breathable and made of soft polyester, but it has a secret: a concealed zipper pocket on the side. No more stress about where to put your house key while staying cool and dry.
Let’s talk about light layers. More specifically, lightweight, woven wind and water repellent polyester layers. The CRAFT Women’s ADV Charge Training Wind Jacket is hot off the Ragnar SS22 press and features an adjustable hood, adjustable drawstring at the waist, and two zippered side pockets. Not only that, but it’s also made from 100% recycled polyester so you can feel good about what you’re wearing!
Lightweight, wind and water repellent, and made of recycled polyester, the CRAFT ADV Essence Wind Jacket is the answer to your light layers prayers. There are two zip side pockets at the front for the trusty PWK (phone, wallet, keys of course) and they have perforations at the chest and under sleeves so you can keep it easy and breezy. Now get out there and run like the wind.
It’s hot out there and sometimes leggings don’t cut it. The CRAFT Women’s ADV Essence 5″ Stretch Shorts will keep you cool and comfortable. They have a semi-relaxed fit so they aren’t too tight or too loose, they’re just right. With an elastic waistband that has an adjustable drawcord inside and two pockets, you’ll be ready to get out there and enjoy that summer heat!
Are you looking for a looser fit for your summer fun? Look no further than the CRAFT Men’s ADV Essence 5″ Stretch Shorts. They have a wide waistband with a drawcord and elastic on the inner briefs with mesh panels for ventilation. And they have reflective features for enhanced visibility, so everyone will be able to see how much fun you’re having (and it’ll keep you safe, of course)!
Skirts are cute, sure, but have you ever tried to run in one? We have you covered (literally) with the CRAFT Women’s PRO Hypervent 2in1 Running Skirt. All the fun of a skirt with the comfort of spandex. Who said fashion couldn’t be functional and flowy.
Sometimes you just need some function, no-nonsense, comfortable tights. With an elastic waistband with an inner drawstring and a small mesh key pocket inside, you’ll be unstoppable.
Flattering and functional, the CRAFT Women’s Core Essence Training Tights make you look good AND feel good! Plus, there’s a small key pocket inside so you don’t get locked out.
Not only does the Nathan QuickStart 2.0 4L Race Vest have a 1.5 L hydration bladder included to keep you hydrated during the race, but it also helps make sure you leave nothing behind! The front storage is perfect for nutrition or your phone. The main back zippered pockets hold extra layers or whatever else you find essential to your runs (we don’t judge). There is an EXTRA bottle pocket on the front for even more hydration. Worried about comfort? The front and side straps are adjustable, and the soft perimeter binding prevents chafing. The reflective hits add additional visibility so everyone can see how hydrated you are (and for safety, obviously).
The Nathan QuickSqueeze 12oz has a (you guessed it) 12 oz. capacity with a push-pull blast valve cap. It’s fully adjustable with no grip hand strap. And it has a zippered pocket to carry your keys, nutrition, pictures of your dog, or whatever else you need on your run. Did you ever think a water bottle could do all of that?
Need more? It comes in an 18oz too!
The most important accessories you need for your night runs? It’s not your favorite kicks or even your cool new headphones. It’s your safety equipment! It may not be the most stylish thing you’ll wear, but it’ll definitely be the most important!
People won’t be able to take their eyes off of you. You are a star.
It’s fire. It has multiple levels of brightness from scary story time to blinding (seriously don’t point these at people’s eyes). It even has a red blinky setting.
You’ll feel like you’re running with the Olympic flame.
Keep the sun off your face and out of your eyes (and look good while doing it). It comes in four colors so you can buy one for everyone on your team. We love a good visor simply because it helps shade your face but doesn’t trap heat like a traditional hat.
The consequences of being a running superstar? You can get sore. When you’re searching for relief, you need something as powerful as you. The Muscle Blaster V2 has seven massage heads included (one for every day of the week) and five-speed settings that go up to 3200 percussions per minute. Mini featured in photo. V2 is slightly bigger and, of course, has more features. Head over to ragnargear.com for 20% of Jawku. No code needed.
Look, the truth is your ankles and feet always seem to swell in the heat. Pro Compression Ragnar Marathon Socks are perfect for regulating blood flow and preventing uncomfortable swelling. Wear them before your run, after your run (during your run) and one of our very favorite ways: when you’re traveling to and from a race by car or plane. This is another great way to prevent that heavy foot feeling.
Why feel good when you can feel goodr? Instead of throwing shade, get some new shades! The goodr OG Running Sunglasses are lightweight, don’t bounce when on the move, and come in just about any color you can imagine. It’s the perfect color pop to any outfit.
