As it has started to turn colder, I'm already thinking about my winter clothing. I was wondering - what is the one item of winter running gear people like best?

Mine is simply my gloves, I actually look forward to it being cold enough to wear them.

Tracky's and a Jumper, I put my hood up to keep my ears warm to!

Mike, trackys and a jumper is 2 items, unless you have an all in one

My favourite item is my snood !

I'm with Simon.. the gloves for me too!

You run in a snood? This is enlightening. I hadn't even considered it...may be I should.

Is it something like this: Amazon Snood

I'm asking this because I was doing a blog post on winter running bargains at the moment, I might throw a snood in there just to mix things up a bit! I expect I'll get shouted at for this - but you can find some ridiculously cheap hats and gloves and other stuff now - this is what I picked out.

Oh no, its nothing as glamorous as that ! Go to amazon and search on fleece snood/Neck warmer scarf. They are ??3.49. If you're a big girls blouse like me they are very snug indeed with such outstanding multi-functional uses such as keeping your neck warm, pull them up over your mouth and nose, cover your ears. The list must be endless. What value for money eh !!!

The gloves have to be soft enough to wipe my nose!!!

pirate buff and think ron hill gloves, and layers of summer kit, the colder it is the more layers.  Windproof gillet if it's blowing a gale and cold, or a think waterproof gillet if it's blowing a hooley and raining.  Sorted.  Peaked cap if it's raining otherwise buff on head.

My duvet, failing that my bath.

carterusm - That is a lovely looking snood. Do you cycle? If so, what do you think of the recent rise of the buff? Poor man's snood?

snood/buff is such a versitile thing to own, i bought loads, i use them as sweat bands in summer, round my neck for keeping the sun off on mountains, and in winter as a beenie / face warmer. buy loads,

i tend to over heat when i run so i just wear 2 light weight tops rather tha a hoodie or sweat top, and i'll wear ron hill tracksters or tights on colder days.

The item I like best is my long socks, but the item I need most is thick gloves - Raynaud's in my hands means that can't be up for debate.

I wear longer shorts, wicka winter top, and cut off gloves, to give me the freedom for music change on my MP3.

I had to put my gloves on this morning for my run. I picked them up for £2 from local Coop they are full gloves but you can use them on smartphones and MP3 players as 1 finger and the thumb have a special type of wool.

...because a BlackBerry or iPhone is an integral part of each training run?

I think it is integral for a lot of people. It can do gps, music and useful to have a phone in case of emergency. There have been times when I have wished. I'd had one with me. That said, I prefer my garmin and not listening to music.
