Great gifts for men

It’s not too late to find the perfect gift for your running buddies… or a little something-something for yourself. We’ve put together a list of great gifts for men who run. (We’ve also put together a list of gifts for women, if you missed it!)
I did my own shopping from this list — here’s what my favorite running buddy is going to find under the tree (umm, Wil, no peeking):

Utopia Softshell Jacket

Utopia Softshell Jacket

With the mercury dropping, this Utopia Softshell Jacket is the perfect luxury gift for runners — it’s weather resistant without being stiff, cozy without being bulky, and stretchy to keep you comfortable in high-aerobic activity.

Essential Run Vest in Brite Green

Essential Run Vest in Brite Green

For times when it’s more blustery than cold, this Essential Run Vest is the perfect layering piece. It’s super lightweight, but is wind- and water-resistant, and has hits of 3M Scotchlite retroreflectivity. I’ve chosen the Brite Green color from our NightLife collection for additional visibility — making this piece perfect for nighttime runs year round.

NightLife Equilibrium Short-Sleeve

NightLife Equilibrium Short-Sleeve

He may not care, but I like things to be color-coordinated, and this top layers perfectly with the vest. The Nightlife Equilibrium Short-Sleeve top is silky soft — but still has great moisture-wicking properties to keep you dry and comfortable. Not into the black/brite green combo? The Equilibrium also comes in black, red, blue, and gray.

Infiniti Short II

Infiniti Short II

The Infiniti Short II is a great all-around short. He’ll love the the holster pockets on the back — perfect for carrying gels on a long run.

Ghost 3

Ghost 3

Light enough for speed yet supportive enough for serious mileage, the Ghost 3 is Wil’s shoe of choice. And he’s not alone — Runner’s World crowned the Ghost 3 their “2010 International Editor’s Choice”.

Check out our complete list of gift ideas for men, as well as our list of gift ideas for women — and happy holidays from all of us at Brooks!

  • Utopia Softshell Jacket is the most amazing jacket ever. With the recent cold weather in Florida I have been wearing this jacket for running and casual wear almost every day. GREAT JACKET!!!
