Finding the motivation to work out can be tricky on the best of days. Trying to do it outside in the winter can be a serious roadblock. That’s especially true if you end up freezing your way through your outdoor workouts wearing the wrong gear.

Clearly, throwing on a thick jacket and hat will help keep your upper half toasty, but tights are a different story. You can’t always tell at first glance which will keep you warm and which will leave you with frozen stems. We found the best cold-weather workout tights, so you can stay focused and warm outside no matter what Mother Nature throws at you this winter.

Under Armour Women’s HeatGear Legging

Under Armour is practically synonymous with “super warm,” so it’s no surprise that their HeatGear leggings are huge with outdoor workout fans. The material is deceptively light, and helps keep you cozy without weighing you down. It also wicks away sweat and dries quickly, just in case you happen to encounter a snow bank or two on your run. An added bonus: the leggings hit a little high on the hips to help smooth out your midsection.
