Compression gear is great in two senses. For one, it hugs your body, keeping you warm for outdoor workouts, like running, or simply on your commute to and from the gym. Secondly, they cause increased blood circulation, which many feel can lead to improved endurance and overall physical performance.

Xersion performance pieces include cold gear shirts, compression shorts and pants, compression muscle and short-sleeve shirts and layering pieces like the packable puffer vest.

“To round out what to pack in your gym bag, there are cotton-rich fleece hoodies, polar fleece jackets and cargo jogger pants,” explains Brockwell. “These garments can be what you wear leaving the gym or even for weekend activities. It’s just as important to have casual and comfortable pieces as it is to have functional fitness items.”

All of the brand’s current winter styles are available for under $50. That includes compression gear, puffer vests, tech fleece zip-ups, cotton-rich fleece hoodies, polar fleece jackets and cargo jogger pants, and more.

So does Brockwell have a favorite of the bunch? “I’m love the short sleeve pull over training hoodie; perfect for the gym or a lazy Sunday.
