Fall Brooks Gear Review

Once again I had the good fortune to try out some great Brooks gear!
Brooks gear head to toe (almost)
I received the Silver Bullet Jacket, Silver Bullet Wind Tight and the Infiniti Hybrid Wind Shirt.

The Silver Bullet Jacket is warm, yet super lightweight.  It is both windproof and water-resistant and has reflective details for low light visibility.  The cozy cuffs with thumbholes provide extra warmth for hands (online product details say there is a flip mitt, but my jacket does not have them?).  Initially I requested a size small, but exchanged for a medium which I feel provides a more comfortable fit for me over a light layer (such as the Infiniti Hybrid Wind Shirt).  It's a nice vibrant color (I have the cerise - initially was sent the cobalt which is also very nice) with some subtle feminine details.  Overall great jacket, truly windproof - we've had some very windy days and this jacket has been perfect for all sorts of activities from watching the kids' soccer games to hiking in the woods.

The Silver Bullet Wind Tight's wind proof and water resistant fabric makes these a great choice for wet and windy conditions.  Zippered ankles provide even easier on off and reflective stripes for safety.  My favorite aspect of the tight is the super cozy soft brushed thermal knit fabric that lines the inside of the tight.  Only suggestion I would have for improvement would be a lower rise, but that's just my personal preference.    

The final piece of my new fall Brooks gear is the Infiniti Hybrid Wind Shirt.  Super cute - I love the vibrant viola color.  Also windproof and water resistant, this shirt is soft and stretchy.  It has a 3/4 front zip and thumbholes for comfort and reflective details for safety.

Very functional and stylish, these pieces are great for running and a whole lot more! chasing the little ones!

Run Happy!

What's your favorite fall running gear? 


  1. For me, the Wind Shirt was appropriate for fall running, the others were too warm. Great for casual wear as well!

  2. I love Brooks gear and when you said thumbholes in both tops, I was sold! Will have to check it all out.

  3. I love everything Brooks. I just do.

    Great review!

  4. I never tried any of their clothes or shoes, those look nice!
