Make your outdoor run workouts more enjoyable this summer with these hot-weather gear must-haves.

Mission AthleteCare Enduracool Instant Cooling Arm Sleeves

($44, Missionathletecare.com)
Not only will these UPF 45 arm sleeves protect your skin from sun exposure, but they also keep you cool with snug-fitting Enduracool fabric over key pulse points (i.e., your wrists). Just wet the sleeves before your run, wring them out, then snap them in the air to activate the “cooling properties,” which instantly cool to 30 degrees below average body temperature. Then as you sweat, the sleeves will keep cooling you down by regulating the evaporation off your skin. One size fits most.

Why we love them:
Sure the skin protecting and cooling properties are cool, but we like that the sleeves are actually comfortable to wear on runs. Added bonus: Two of the four available colors keep you visible in low light.
