Shrug if you want to stay warm

I was initially unsure about the concept of the Urban Running Girl shrug. On one hand, it seemed like a potentially smart idea but on the other it seemed like a potentially strange idea. It wasn’t until I tried it that I truly saw the beauty of this product!

Urban Running Girl Shrug

The Urban Running Girl shrug is basically a shirt… without most of the shirt! It covers the arms and shoulders, making it lightweight and easy to remove when you no longer need that layer. Plus, unlike arm warmers where you have to find somewhere to stash them once you’re done with them, this can tie around your waist without nearly the bulk that a jacket adds. This is perfect for cool morning runs (I live in Las Vegas, this could even be used for winter running!) and it’s a perfect option for races with cool starts. You can wear a tank or singlet and top it off with the shrug to stay warm. Your race number will stay expose while you stay warm until it’s time to remove the shrug.

It has handy little pockets at the end of the sleeves.

No, these pockets aren’t for storing stuff, they’re to tuck your hands into when you’re shivering in the starting corral or just need to keep your paws covered for a little while.

The shrug is a nice soft material and it washes up beautifully. On the back the website for UrbanRunningGirl.ca is featured… so others will know where to get one after they are jealous of your shrug!

You can use this for more than just running though. You could stuff it in your bag and pull it on in cold movie theaters (Does every place keep their movie theaters sub-zero? Vegas ones are cold!) You could slip it on over a t-shirt while working in the yard or just sitting in your office. (That’s been tested… it worked well!) I’m a fan, I think this is a smart design!

The business is based out of Canada and you can order from them online. Orders can be shipped to the US and Canada.

PS – My Macbook took horrible pictures of this, huh? They’re so small and grainy. Bah!

  1. What a good idea! I’ve avoided getting a set of arm warmers because I have heavy upper arms and they either don’t fit and/or look horrid, plus the problem, like you said, of where to put them when they come off.
