REI’s new Winterflyte collection consists of tops and bottoms ideal for cross-country skiing that can also double as fitness wear for colder-weather runs and bike rides. The polyester/spandex Winterflyte jacket ($99.50) pairs double-weave front panels to block weather with lighter-weight side panels that dissipate heat. Matching tights or pants ($79.50 each) can battle wind speeds of up to 25 miles an hour.
