When you stop into any of our 8 Potomac River Running Store locations in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia areas, you can’t miss the new apparel offerings specifically suited to winter training from Mizuno using their new Breath Thermo technical fibers.
Let’s examine what Breath Thermo means and why it matters to you if you’re in need of new cold-weather running or walking apparel.
First off, “Breath Thermo” has nothing to do with that hot salsa you just ate, nor is it the name of a new line of candied mints. It’s not a coating or a treatment, but rather a fiber knitted into all Breath Thermo products. It can’t be washed off, and it won’t lose its effectiveness over time.
This revolutionary technology created by Mizuno has everything to do with keeping you warm during outdoor exercise while keeping the apparel lightweight, resilient and flexible for enhanced comfort. The team at Mizuno understand that just because we experience all four seasons here in the Metro DC area, including our share of wintry mix, we’re the fittest city in the nation and we’re determined to stay active, despite the forecast.
Dedicated runners and those resolving to start a new training program will be boosted by the warmth Breath Thermo apparel provides. Using your own moisture, or water vapor, to keep you warm, the fiber acts in two ways: it pulls moisture away from your body and the activated fibers then generate heat that is directed back towards your body. The goal of the lineup from Mizuno is to allow you run with less, stay warm, and keep running!
Paired with a new pair of Mizuno Inspire 11’s or Wave Rider 18’s, a Mizuno Breath Thermo piece of apparel including hat, gloves, long-sleeved top or pants will inspire you to stick to it and be race-ready next Spring!
