    Promising review: "I wore this rain jacket through downpours as well as sprinkles and occasional sunshine for a ten day hike in Scotland. It kept me warm when I needed to be warm and cool when the sun came out. I just came home and washed it, and it looks good as new." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.98+ (available in sizes XS—3X and 26 colors).

    2. A fleece thermal that'll keep you toasty but not drench you in sweat when it's cold outside. It's made with fabric that wicks away moisture *and* helps you stay warm, so you can crush your next jog, run, or bike ride.

    Promising review: "I was running my first 10K and bought this top last minute. When they switched the forecast to be chilly (47 degrees Fahrenheit), I ran in it and it kept me warm, but even more important it was comfortable and didn't bother me at all. I am going to order another one in a different color for my other fall races. And what a good price!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes XS—3X and nine colors).

    3. A high-impact sports bra because it will keep you supported (and *very* comfortable) during your next cardio session, especially if you have a bigger bust. A built-in bra and wide shoulder straps are a heavenly combo for jumps, squats, and lunges.

    Promising review: "First of all, I never write reviews unless I really like the product. This is the best sports bra I’ve ever purchased! The sizes are true and it gives me so much support! I’m big-chested and the medium is perfect." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S—3XL and six bra combinations in packs of two, three, or five).

    Get it from Adidas for $32+ (available in sizes 1X—4X and four colors).

    5. A pair of bike shorts that won't ride up, show off your underwear, or feel super tight around your thighs. (Cue Rihanna singing "Where have you been, all my life?!")

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "These are the first pair of shorts I have ever had that *do not ride up* during exercise and I am amazed. I’ve always had a muscular build and have resorted to wearing yoga pants for workouts even on hot days because I get so tired of constantly having to pull my shorts down (I do hot yoga, running, CrossFit). But not with these! Highly recommend! The high waist is flattering and comfortable." —Erin Michelle

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS—XXL and five colors).

    6. High-rise leggings so you can power through your indoor cycling session without bunching or sagging. These babies will stay up on your waist and still feel comfortable, even if you're peddling really fast on a stationary bike.

    One of our BuzzFeed editors also swears by these workout leggings, because they're super comfortable and keep sweat at bay during cardio sessions.

    Promising review: "The compression was just enough to flatter my legs, and yet comfortable enough to complete a high intensity workout. Definitely squat-proof with no showing of undies! The waist band was nice and high, and did not slide down even with running or jumps." —Girlfriend Collective Customer

    Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $68 (available in sizes XXS—6XL and nine colors).

    7. A twist-front crop top because you want to look cute and not be too sweaty during virtual bootcamp classes. You will also *finally* have something to wear with your fave high-rise leggings and bike shorts.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    I own this crop top and I love wearing it for running, HIIT, and dance classes. It doesn't roll up when I'm moving, it's super breathable, and it's not too tight on my chest.

    Promising review: "I love this shirt. I've been taking fitness more seriously the last few months and finally got around to replacing all of my old activewear. It's just loose enough that I don't have to adjust it while I'm working out and also provides nice cleavage coverage. It's extremely soft and has good-sized arm holes. The navy color is deep and beautiful." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS—XL and 17 colors).

    8. A medium-support sports bra that'll look gorgeous on you if you're attending a virtual spin class or lifting weights indoors. Adjustable front straps will minimize bouncing and sewn-in cups will give your boobs a supportive pillow.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried at least 10 sports bras on and I finally got to this one. It has the right support, I love the mesh detail, and it’s as comfortable as can be. Liked it so much I came back and bought three more!" —Target Customer

    Get it from Target for $24 (available in sizes S—4X and two colors).

    9. A short-sleeve top with an open tie-back and lightweight fabric perfect for indoor yoga. You'll be ~ohm-mazed~ with this gem's breathability and comfort during your practice.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Wow, these tops absolutely blew my mind. They’re light, breathable yet provide coverage. The open back detail is very cute and I love the knotted detailing as well. I can literally wear these with any workout outfit and feel totally comfortable in it. If you’ve been debating on getting this, don’t! Totally worth every penny!" —Kaitlin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S—XL and 11 colors).

    10. A comfy hoodie to throw over a tank or T-shirt when you want a break from compressive clothing. You'll feel so cozy when you go power walking or take a virtual Pilates class.

    Model wears light gray and white oversize tie-dye hoodie and matching joggers near a pile of leaves

    Promising review: "The perfect hoodie. Just the right amount of oversized, so you don't look like you're drowning in your clothing. The fabric is light enough to wear even in Miami! Soft and not an overpowering color scheme. Goes great with leggings and joggers." —Aerie Customer

    Get it from Aerie for $37.46 (available in sizes XXS—XXL and eight colors).

    11. Matching sports bra and leggings that'll solve the problem of "I don't know what the heck to wear" when you're trying to squeeze in a cardio session. This coordinating set will make dressing for HIIT, Zumba, or kickboxing so dang easy.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Wow this is my new favorite workout set!! It’s stretchy but is also form fitting and flattering! The material is great quality and the leggings stay in place when you run! I’m going to order in every color!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes XS—L and 12 colors).

    12. A sports bra/crop top because A) you'll save time getting dressed for the gym and B) you won't have to wear multiple layers (your chest will thank you for *not* wearing a sports bra, T-shirt, and hoodie when you're on the treadmill or StairMaster).

    Model wears camo-print gray and black crop top with removable pads

    Promising review: "These are by far my favorite sports bras and I am a sports bra junkie! I have a large bust size but a small band and these work so well for me. Secure enough to run in but also comfortable enough to wear for any workout or just under a top with an exposed back. There are no adjustments on the bra so getting it on and off can be a little tricky, especially after a good workout but it is so worth it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24+ (available in sizes XS—XL and 16 colors).

    13. An off-shoulder top that won't be drenched by the time you're done working out (thank you moisture-wicking fabric) and works amazing for indoor cycling sessions.

    Model wears white off-shoulder short sleeve tee with white and light pink leggings

    Promising review: "I bought this because I like basic tops that I can wear every day. This shirt does run big, but I like it because I can tie it in a knot without it pulling too tight or tuck it in my pants. I would buy this again in other colors." —Torrid Customer

    Get it from Torrid for $39.50 (available in sizes 2X—6X).

    14. Calf compression sleeves to slip on whenever you need sweet relief from long runs. These boost blood flow and minimize swelling, so you can crush your route sans pain.

    Promising review: These compression sleeves helped keep my calves from feeling too sore while I was running. I think these will be very handy as I slowly increase my distance and speed and will help in the recovery of my muscles both after runs and after weights/calisthenics workouts. I would absolutely recommend these to beginner or seasoned runner to help muscle recovery, endurance, and speed." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pair from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S—XL and 12 colors).

    15. A performance tank so soft and comfy for rock climbing, strength training, and everything in between. Enjoy chest support and less sweat thanks to a built-in bra and moisture-wicking fabric.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I love these leggings! They've held up to every workout I've put them through (running, HIIT, hiking, strength workouts, etc). I've washed and dried them several times with no pilling and no shrinkage. The price is a steal for the quality of these leggings! I'll definitely be buying more!" —Amazon Customer

    17. Moisture-wicking pants with a jogger-like silhouette and a comfy material perfect for nature walks or backpacking trips. You'll move freely, not be drenched in sweat, and look chic while you hit up the trails.

    Model wears dark blue active joggers with a gray T-shirt and Reebok sneakers

    Promising review: "They’re so comfortable, super stretchy, and quick-drying. You could wear these out for a casual dinner or wear these hiking all day. I wore these for three straight days camping and kayaking in the backwoods of New Hampshire, they stayed clean, didn’t smell, didn’t lose their shape, weren’t too hot on a 70- to 75-degree day, and they repelled all the lake water while kayaking." —Backcountry Customer

    Get them from Backcountry for $47.97+ (available in sizes XXS—XXL and eight colors).

    18. A scallop sports bra that'll look cute and not feel too tight. You can actually *move* when you lift weights or do push-ups and not deal with digging straps.

    19. A zip-up jacket so you won't be like "oh my gosh, I'm so cold" when you're running outside. It even has thumbholes that stay in place, so you won't have to awkwardly adjust your sleeves mid-workout.

    Model wears wine-colored running zip-up shirt with black leggings

    Promising review: "This is a great jacket! I ordered a medium and It’s the slightest bit more form fitting than a few of my other yoga jackets, but it’s still excellent quality. It’s breathable, has thumbholes, and the fabric flaps that cover your hands if they’re cold. I’d highly recommend it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95+ (available in sizes S—1X and eight colors).

    20. Windproof pants so warm, comfortable, and breathable for waterfall walks, trail hikes, and mountain trips. These babies are also waterproof and have plenty of pocket space for your phone, keys, and wallet.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Bought this pair for my trip to Iceland and they were great! Went to waterfalls, hiking, and they held up under rain. Super comfy and kept me warm in 50 degrees Fahrenheit and below temps because of the lining." —Alli J

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS—XL and 12 colors).

    21. A top and bike short set because there *will* be times when it's a little warm in the fall and you don't want to wear cold weather activewear yet.

    Model wears light purple side-split top with bike shorts set and white sneakers

    Get it from Boohoo for $18 (available in sizes 12—20 and three colors).

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I love the open back. It doesn't fly open or create any weird gaps when carrying a bag or purse. I love the open back for ventilation and looks adorable with a strappy sports bra. I have since purchased in multiple colors." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.98 (available in sizes S—XL and 10 colors).

    23. A mid-impact sports bra to minimize bouncing during HIIT circuits. Your chest will stay in place and not feel too constricted if you're doing a lot of high knees and jumping jacks.

    Model wears light pink Under Armour sports bra with shiny red leggings

    Promising review: "I love this bra! I do a lot of kettlebell HIIT workouts and cardio kickboxing and this bra is great for all that. I am a DDD cup, so support is really important to me and this bra delivers. It's labeled as a medium support bra, but I'd say it boarders on almost being high support. I am definitely very comfortable doing things like burpees or jumping jacks in this bra." —Brianna Yee

    Get it from Amazon for $21.21+ (available in sizes XS—XXL and 33 colors).

    24. Fleece running tights so your butt and legs can stay warm if you're enjoying crisp fall weather and taking your workout outdoors.

    Promising review: "Best light colder running pants ever! Just ran a 5K, 10K, and a half-marathon this weekend and ran in my Baleaf pants. They kept me warm. Not too hot. They were comfortable during all of my runs. I have two pairs and I might buy two more just to keep on the shelf for a later date." —Jillnaomi

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS—XXL and eight colors).

    25. Squat-proof leggings you'll absolutely love for leg day. They'll stay put on your waist and you won't have to do a pull-up dance every time you come up from deadlifts or lunges.
