Running or biking in the winter means figuring out a way to keep your hands warm without relying on bulky insulated gloves that quickly overheat during exercise. The PhD HyFi Wind Training Gloves from Smartwool won't let you down. The slim design features a comfortable fit, and the back of the glove is windproof to keep out the chilly air. On the palm and fingers you'll find silicon grippers to help you grab onto things like water bottles or the handlebars of a bike, and the thumb and index finger are coated with touch-screen compatible material to allow you to operate your smart phone without having to take off your gloves. They are made by Smartwool, after all, so 37 percent of the gloves material is merino wool, providing excellent insulation and breathability while remaining soft to the touch of your hand.
The addition of nylon and Elastane provide for the wind proofing and durability. You'll even find reflectivity on them to help you be seen on early-morning and evening runs. They aren't cheap (save them for running and don't lose one!), but you'll find that they quickly become a must-have for winter exercise.
