All the gear we're excited about this month...

We bloomin’ love autumn: the leaves are turning brown, the mornings are clear and crisp and the temperature is perfect for our longer training runs. Make sure you stay safe as the evenings grow shorter – Brooks have a gorgeous Run Visible collection of reflective gear that’s making darker running sessions a joy.

1. BROOKS Carbonite Hat £25

Perfect for low-light conditions and unpredictable autumn weather, this hat has a DriLayer® Seal that offers protection as well as reflectivity. You’ll be easy to spot in the dark with the 3M Carbon Black reflective technology that looks sleek while keeping you safe.

2. BROOKS Carbonite Jacket £130

Featuring the same Carbon Black strips of super-reflective material, the Carbonite Jacket is lightweight and breathable. It keeps you dry and protects you from the wind, but won’t cause you to overheat – result!

3. BROOKS Dash 1/2 Zip £50

This is our go-to layer when a t-shirt doesn’t quite cut it – it’s incredibly cosy and the fit is both comfortable and flattering. It has those all-important thumb holes to stop it from riding up and the colour ways are just gorgeous. We like the red, because were badass like that.

4. BROOKS Dare Zip Run Bra £55

The Dare Zip Run Bra offers truly brilliant comfort and support. It’s designed for high-impact sports, making it a perfect running companion, and the zip at the front is a game-changer – no more wrenching a sweaty bra over your head post-run, hoorah!

5. BROOKS Carbonite 7/8 Tight £80

Ideal for your early morning runs, the Carbonite tights offer lightweight coverage along with high visibility. Comfortable and flattering, and featuring a handy back pocket, they look stylish in the daytime and light up the dark.

6. BROOKS Ghost Midweight Crew socks £22

A pair of socks with cushioning and support is key for longer runs. The Ghost crew socks are comfortable and breathable, featuring odour-resistant fabric that’ll keep you feeling fresh.

7. BROOKS Levitate 4 shoes £140

These will certainly put a spring in your step – the bouncy Levitate 4 road shoes give you a return on your energy as you run and weigh in at just under 261g. They’re seriously fast, and now feature reflective tech so you can ensure you’re visible form head to toe.
