Weather The Storm
When it comes to cold-weather running pants, it often feels like we have to compromise. Pick one: warmth or weight. The result is we spend winter somewhere between freezing and trudging. Our solution? Combine a full-stretch polyester blend with the natural properties of Merino wool to amplify insulation, dry time and odor-resistance, without weighing you down.

For The Cold
The secret to a great winter pant is counterintuitive. Most people's instinct is to double down on weight. But relying on a heavier knit misses the mark. The key to keeping warm in the winter is a fabric that creates loft, trapping the body’s heat before it’s released. To truly ensure protection from the elements a running pant needs to combine heft with loft, perform when wet from snow or sweat, insulate, breathe and dry quickly.
The NDO Pant utilizes a mix of natural and synthetic fibers for enhanced warmth without compromising freedom of movement. The result is a running pant that refuses to compromise: yes it’s heavier, but it’s also warmer and more breathable.
Running on snow or through messy streets often means suffering the indignity of getting slush splashed up your legs. We added ribbed ankle cuffs, which hold the pant closer to the body and help keep the wet out.
Hip To Zip
Winter running often requires a few more supplies. Keep those keys, credit card, subway pass and chapstick stowed in zippered side pockets and a back internal pocket.
On And Off
There’s nothing worse than trying to unzip wet pants after a cold-run. The NDO Pants feature high ankle zips for easy on-and-off and a zipper that’s big enough for frozen fingers.
Rafa Oliveira put the NDO Pants through their paces over a three day winter training camp at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Heavy early-season snowfall and chilly 20 degree conditions didn’t stop Rafa from executing his long run or fartlek around Lake Willoughby.
