Fall is upon us! Aka the chilly season that’s perfect for bundling up in cozy layers, sitting by the fire sipping tea and, of course, working out outside now that the blazing hot sun has retreated until next summer. There’s nothing better than a long run or bike ride in the brisk morning air in October; that is if you’ve got the right gear.
Sweaters, sweatshirts and windbreakers will all help you cut the cold, but if they’re not made of the right fabric you can actually end up more uncomfortable than when you started. No one wants to hit mile three, get too hot and sweaty, and then freeze by mile four because your jacket didn’t wick the moisture away in time. Who do we turn to in our times of performance-gear need? lululemon, of course.
Not only does lululemon have top-notch fabrics that serve as the perfect foundation for all of their new athletic and athleisure wear, but the brand also has some great outerwear that’s built for staying warm, dry and comfortable during outdoor workouts as the seasons shift. Even if you’re not an athlete, you don’t want to sleep on lululemon’s jackets.
We’ve picked a few of our favorite pieces from their brand new fall collection that are worth checking out as temperatures drop. For the season’s perfect transitional coat or hoodie, read on.
lululemon Outpour StretchSeal Anorak
Have you been getting a lot of rain in your area lately? Yeah, us too. This fall you can stay dry and handsome with a new lululemon rain jacket designed for on-the-go guys like you. This lululemon anorak is completely waterproof and windproof. Plus, unlike most rain jackets, it was designed with two-way stretch so that it moves with you. Plus, once the temperatures drop, it will be the perfect layer for staying dry on cold, wet days. So whether you’re working out or commuting to work, this is the perfect outer layer.
At Ease Hoodie
This chill hoodie is perfect for layering on a relaxed hike or walk with the dogs. It’s designed to let you really move, with four-way stretch and a classic roomy fit. It’s got a zippered pocket on the inside for storing phones and cards, and underarm gussets for improved mobility.
Outpour StretchSeal™ Field Jacket
Here at SPY, we love men’s field jackets, and we recently learned that lululemon has one of the best field jackets known to mankind. This stylish and durable coat will last you for years to come, and thanks to the enduring appeal of this style, it will never go out of fashion. Made with waterproof StretchSeal™ fabric, this field jacket also has a removable hood, reflective details for running and cycling, a hidden phone sleeve and plenty of pockets. This is one of the most stylish jackets in lululemon’s outerwear collection, and a SPY editor favorite.
Navigation Stretch Down Jacket
This down jacket is lululemon’s take on the classic coat style for fall. We think it’ll be your go-to for keeping the wind at bay, and it’s made with water-resistant, DiamondStretch fabric that’s windproof and 700-fill-power lightweight goose down that will keep you warm. The classic fit is made to leave room for the body, and it’s got a cincable waist for those particularly chilly days. The ThermoChannel design locks in heat, and the stretchy fabric means you can still move the way you want to.
City Sweat French Terry Pullover Hoodie
This sweatshirt is made of soft, comfortable French Terry fabric and just enough Lycra fibre for four-way stretch and shape retention. The sleeves have built-in articulation to accommodate for the elbow’s natural movements, and there are hidden media and coin pockets as well. It comes in a bunch of neutral, flattering colors and is perfect for layering on a blustery day.
Textured Tech Hoodie
This hoodie is designed specifically with running and training in mind. It’s made with abrasion-resistant fabric so a tough day on the track or in the weightlifting room shouldn’t phase it, and it’s sweat-wicking, quick-drying and has four-way stretch as well. The classic isn’t baggy, but leaves plenty of room for movement, and it’s got integrated mesh ventilation for staying cool.
Metal Vent Tech 1/2 Zip 2.0
This slim-fitting 1/2 zip sweatshirt is also designed for running and training, and has a seamless construction designed to prevent chafing. Using lululemon’s one-of-a-kind Silverescent fabric technology this layer is designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria that can cause odors, and it’s got added elastane for improved stretching and shape retention.
Commission Pant Classic 32″ Wapstreme
These lululemon chinos — available in over 10 colors and sizes plus five lengths ranging from 28 inches to 37 inches — are a must-have wardrobe staple if you’re headed back into the office this fall, or just want a more comfortable version of your go-to professional trousers. They’re crafted from Warpstreme everyday performance fabric that’s designed to move with you, retain its shape, dry quickly, resist wrinkles and be breathable all at once. They’ve got hidden zippered pockets and are designed to give glutes and thighs the necessary breathing room as well. Is there anything these pants can’t do?
This jacket has the clean lines, high-performance fabric and easy zip-up look you want in your closet this fall. The ripstop fabric is water-repellent and features lululemon’s four-way stretch and abrasion resistance as well. With breathable mesh under the arms for added comfort and zippered pockets for on-the-go storage, this lightweight, hip-length jacket is perfect for chilly fall days.
Surge Jogger 29″
These joggers are designed for running in cooler weather, and are made with quick-drying fabric and a tapered fit for keeping just the right amount of heat in. They give glutes and thighs breathing room and the sweat-wicking fabric is made with 100% recycled nylon. In addition to four-way stretch with shape retention, these pants feature reflective detailing for nighttime safety.
License To Train Pant 29″
These stylish, abrasion-resistant joggers might be made for training, but they’ll still look great with a sweatshirt for those rocking casual streetwear style. The fabric is water-repellent, wind-resistant and has four-way stretch for easy moving. The adjustable drawcord allows for a range of comfort while the snaps at the hem adjust the fit.
Navigation Stretch Down Vest
This Navigation Vest is the take on the Navigation Jacket we never knew we needed. The slimmer style comes with nearly all of the same features minus two sleeves. The fabric is water-resistant, windproof and built for warmth. It’s got a two-way stretch fabric as well as a cinchable waist, like its predecessor, and an interior zippered chest pocket for storing small items.
