Trying Craft's winter kit on for size

Craft's latest creations could be just the ticket for reasonably priced running wear that will get you through winter in both style and comfort.

Trying Craft's winter kit on for size

Compared to leading sportswear brands, their pieces are easy on the bank balance, yet have a lot of the technical plus points of the bigger we decided to put a few of their key winter pieces to the test.

Fuseknit comfort turtle neck

Whether you're running, hiking or biking, the Craft Fuseknit turtle neck will keep you sufficiently guarded from the elements. This style not only boasts of the temperature regulating materials, the turtleneck design can also be used both as a neck gaiter. To prevent over-heating, Craft have included some very handy breathing holes, which is a big tick for us.  Buy now

Urban run body warmer

If you want to find that middle ground between feeling like partially cooked Michelin Man and too chilly to move, Craft's body warmer is the perfect extra layer to keep you warm when the temperature drops without overheating. It's both soft and lightweight, with quilted padding for extra warmth and a handy reflective strip to ensure that you stay seen in the dark. Buy now 

Fuseknit comfort wrap

Adding a flash of colour to your run is a sure-fire way to feel more spritely and the Fuseknit comfort wrap can guarantee that. It's made of lightweight yarn which is optimised to keep you warm when it's cold outside but stop any over heating as your body heats up. If you prefer your running kit to be on the baggier side, we would suggest going up a size, as this particular style comes up snug. Buy now 


Craft Eaze tights

A classic black tight is something every runner needs in their wardrobe and the Eaze tights don't disappoint. This style is made for both men and women, with each fitting comfortably thanks to streamline ergonomic fit. Drawstring tie ensures you can adjust the fit with ease and keep your tights in place. They didn't budge after half a dozen miles, which is a definite plus. No tight would be complete without a handy pocket, and Craft have also got that covered, ready for your keys or a tasty post-run snack. Buy now
