Review: Brooks Men’s PureProject Long Sleeve Henley

Normally I don't get especially passionate about running tops, so it takes something really interesting to catch my eye. In this case, Brooks has something really exciting and the PureProject line in general represents some very new thinking for them and for most running companies. It's not flashy, has really clean lines, and dare I say it... a little stylish. First off, lets talk about the PureProject in general. It's clearly ...

Review: Brooks LSD Lite Jacket IV

The Brooks LSD Lite Jacket IV was really one of the nicest pieces I have worn while running in quite a while. Now that may sound like high-praise, but as an ultra lightweight water and wind-resistant jacket you would be hard pressed to find a better performer. Did I mention that it's got several color options including high-viz and a stowable hood as well? Nice. The takeaway here is that this ...
