So now we’ve provided you with some of the best hats, gloves and other cold weather accessories on the market, how do you know which one is going to be right for you? Well, perhaps think about what type of runner you are:  

Are you someone who struggles to warm up quickly? If so, hats such as the Ron Hill Nightrunner Beanie, which is soft and warm and visible, might be a good option for you on those colder winter runs.

Do you suffer with asthma or tend to wheeze after breathing in cold air? A Buff might just be the thing for you; I never run in winter without one as I suffer with mild asthma which flares up in cold weather, and wearing a soft but lightweight Buff around my neck makes all the difference in the world. 

Do your hands get cold and achy while you run? You might think about investing in a pair of gloves that are both windproof and waterproof, such as the Ron Hill Wind Proof Flip Gloves, to make sure your hands stay warm and dry no matter the weather and temperature. 

Do you get too hot running in a hat, but ears get too cold and give you headaches? I would recommend a headband such as the Ronhill Reversible Contour Handband, which provides both warmth for your ears and bright colours for visibility. 

Whatever you need to stay warm, visible and protected, check out our range of hats and gloves and many more, designed for every runner’s need.
