30 Outdoor Accessory Innovations

From Merino Wool Running Caps to High-Performance Neck Warmers

— January 16, 2016 — Art & Design
These outdoor accessory innovations range from high-performance neck warmers to merino wool running caps. While Buff's versatile neck wrap can be worn both as a sweat-resisting headband and insulating scarf, Pettete Endurance Project's wool running hat also regulates temperature. The cap's merino wool material cools wearers during warm outdoor conditions and is moisture-resistant to boot. This fabric's versatility also means that the cap will transform into a thermal accessory during colder temperatures.

Additional standouts include Sweaty Betty's reflective running headband along with Lululemon's illuminating running gloves. While both products increase a runner's visibility in the dark, the latter is made with Lululemon's patented Rulu fabric and is touchscreen-compatible.

Furthermore, outdoor accessory examples like Run Mummy Run's stylish compression socks marry aesthetics with function while offering muscular support and preventing common injuries.
