Do you need a mask while running outside? It depends. These are some good options.

{ object.primary_image.title }}

A neck gaiter—once reserved for the most outdoorsy of folks—is now the perfect tool for protecting us all during daily jogs. I’ll admit it: I don’t wear a mask when I go on runs. On the large sidewalks, trails, and roads where I live, I can maintain a distance of six feet (often many more) from others who might be passing me. And for me as a new owner of a rescue inhaler (for exercise-induced asthma), wearing a mask while running isn’t comfortable. Let’s be honest: In the thick heat of late summer, it’s not comfortable for anyone, asthma or otherwise Read Full Story

When this mask wears out, you can send it back to be recycled—and compost the filter

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The first mask from Masuku doesn’t need to fit tightly to block particles, so it’s more comfortable to wear. Four years ago, long before the pandemic made masks ubiquitous, a U.K.-based startup called Masuku began developing a better face mask to help filter out pollution in smoggy cities. Masks on the market weren’t necessarily comfortable or breathable; they also weren’t sustainable. Read Full Story

I’m a serious runner. This is the best sports bra I’ve ever worn

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Brooks’s Dare Crossback Run Bra is super soft, supportive, and never squeezes me too hard. The Dare Crossback Run Bra from Brooks is the most comfortable thing I’ve ever worn working out. While I don’t have a huge cup size, back issues, or other struggles, I do work out a lot—and I’ve had a lot of sports bras that made working out uncomfortable, whether from squeezing too hard, chafing in weird spots, or feeling like there’s not enough coverage. The Dare Crossback changed that. Read Full Story

How to upgrade your work-from-home uniform (while keeping comfy)

{ object.primary_image.title }}

From Lululemon pants to super-soft tee dresses, these staples are comfy, easy, and just put together enough to pull off a Zoom call. As someone who has worked from home for five years, I know a thing or two about waking up and changing out of my nighttime pajamas and putting on my daytime “pajamas.” I also know a few things about putting on athletic wear first thing in the morning as a nod to my future hopes of squeezing a midday run or workout. And putting on jeans and makeup, just to sit inside my house and look professional. In the past five years, I’ve run the gamut of figuring out what not to wear while trying to be productive, comfortable, and several degrees away from slobbish while working from home. But it was only recently that I was introduced to the psychology behind why clothes can impact how …

I’m an emergency medicine doctor: Here’s how we’re using ultrasound in innovative ways to combat COVID-19

{ object.primary_image.title }}

I work at one of Philadelphia’s biggest hospitals, where we’re starting to see a surge in COVID-19 cases, and we’ve been able to adapt this common technology to more quickly diagnose coronavirus than using other techniques. Tall and thin, wearing blue jeans, the patient walked past me in the emergency department. Wearing a surgical mask, he walked behind the triage nurse following her to the patient room and got hooked up to the heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen monitor. When I entered, rolling a cart with an ultrasound machine the size of a laptop, I heard the fast beeping accompanying the rate of his heartbeat. I was wearing the uniform that’s become standard in the last two months: the awkward set of equipment and garments that people have come to know as PPE (personal protective equipment). Bouffant hat, light-blue plastic gown wrapped and tied at the waist, oversized goggles, …

Can’t seem to quit your sweatpants? These pants styles feel like sweats, but look put together

{ object.primary_image.title }}

I’ve scoured the market to find styles that are polished enough to wear to the office, but that feel like sweatpants. Okay, I have a confession to make. Wearing sweatpants over the last six months in quarantine has made me allergic to real pants. I recently tried on a pair of trousers, only to find them foreign, overly restrictive, and uncomfortable. This presents a problem as lockdowns begin to ease and I find myself occasionally heading out of the house. I’ve been scouring the market for pants that feel as comfortable as the leggings and sweats I’ve been living in, but that look put together to wear at slightly more formal occasions. Read Full Story

Cult running brand Hoka One One just dropped its most comfortable sneakers yet

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The Clifton Edge combines the technology of the TenNine with a more wearable silhouette. Earlier this year, the running shoe specialists at Hoka One One released the TenNine —a shoe so strange and bold in its design that it comes with its own special warning label on the shoebox: “CAUTION” it reads. “Using this product for anything other than running may impair balance and dexterity. So, don’t wear these on stairs or while driving.” Read Full Story

What is a mask valve, and why are cities banning them?

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Valves will keep you more comfortable, but endanger those around you. In some states and major cities, it’s now mandatory to wear a mask in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19. That mask could be anything from a handkerchief to a designer cotton mask to a full-blown N95 respirator , so long as you have something between your mouth and nose and the world around you.
