Looking for the perfect gear for your outdoor activities and running sessions? We’ve asked our Pros about their favourite running and hiking products - read on for a few useful tips.

Kati’s favourite running products

Kati has one motto: be versatile. She’s an expert in training, athletics, outdoor sports and running. In her free time, Kati loves going out into nature to power up by hiking, running, mountain biking, surfing or skiing. She believes in “creating a life that feels good on the inside and not only looks good on the outside”. Her aim is to lead a fit, healthy and happy life. Kati Salomon Nocturne When she decides to step off her usual roads and paths during a run, Kati reaches for her Salomon Speedcross 4 GTX shoes. “This shoe is ideal for runners who want a neutral, waterproof training shoe for off-road and forest runs”. With these shoes she likes to wear running tights like the Peak Performance Tech and, depending on the weather, either a t-shirt or a lightweight pullover like the Ace Zip hoodie, also by Peak Performance.

Julian’s favourite outdoor outfit

When asked why he loves hiking and climbing, Keller Sports Pro Julian answered: “It actually makes me feel completely free. I love exploring the vastness of a mountainous landscape”. But Julian doesn’t just hike, he’s always in search of new challenges, including ice climbing and hiking through the desert. Despite the excitement of new places, Julian is always drawn back to the mountains of his homeland, where he’s tried out several products for us. As far as Julian is concerned, the most important characteristics of sports articles are reliability and a low weight. Julian Haglöfs L.I.M One of his favourite outdoor jackets is the Haglöfs L.I.M Comp. A Gore-Tex Active Shell makes the garment wind- and waterproof, light, quick and easy to store, and also stylish. When it comes to shoes, Julian’s first choice is LOWA hiking shoes - they’re sturdy, robust and waterproof too. Our Pro also likes to bring some technical equipment along with him, like the Suunto Traverse sports watch. What do you think of his sports kit?

Franzi’s hiking favourites

Our Keller Sports Pro Franzi is a real outdoor enthusiast. She feels that “practising sports out in the open, especially in the mountains, is the best way to recover from the stresses of everyday life”. She was brought up in the mountains and spends every free minute in her hiking shoes or on her skis. When it comes to choosing the right clothing, “security, functionality and quality are top priority - but looking cool is important too!”. Franzi PYUA Outdoor Jacke The combination of functionality, good looks and sustainability offered by PYUA outdoor clothing ticks all of the boxes for Franzi. Her absolute favourite jacket is the PYUA Spray 3-layer jacket. It has a long cut, is completely waterproof and looks awesome. Combined with the PYUA Float 2.0 Softshell and the North Face Progressor Hybrid tights, she’s put together the perfect outdoor outfit. What do you think of these jackets and pants?
