To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The only experience I had with running gloves before these was a pair of Solomon running gloves borrowed from my brother. Then I went to buy a pair and they were nearly $50 for a pair, of what I considered light-weight gloves. I decided to go the cheaper route...and I regret it. These gloves thick, and stiff. The touchscreen pads have Zero effect on my iphone or my apple watch. I went running with them yesterday when it was 5 degrees Celsius. It took over 20 minutes for my hands to get warm. And when they finally did get warm, they got really hot. My hands were sweating, as there's no ventilation in the gloves. They basically seem like waterproof rubber gardening gloves with no vents. With that said, they do seem sturdy, so I'll probably keep them as gardening gloves!
Gog a pair of these for Christmas 2018. I've worn them on 5 or 6 runs in temps from about 45F to about 33F (so, nothing super cold). For me, this is probably the ideal temperature range for these gloves. On the colder runs -- especially longer runs -- my hands sweat and the sweat and cold overwhelm the gloves ability to warm my hands. I'm giving a 5 star review because they are comfortable, not bulky and they perform well within the expected range of use. Also, the gloves are completely dry within 24 hours and ready for use every day. I have a Garmin 630 watch with a touch screen and I'm able to successfully use touch screen functions while using these gloves -- although I prefer not to and only do so when absolutely necessary. In the photo above, I'm wearing the glove while holding my "knuckle light" just to illustrate the fit and the fact that they're not bulky.
I ordered two pairs for running not knowing how well they'll fit or work. I'm glad I did, because they work well for what I need. Of all the gloves I used that have the special smart device finger pads on them these are the best I've had so far (Note to iPhone 8 and older users, the Home button will not recognize your finger print with gloves on). They also appear to be put together well. Keep in mind that these gloves are not insulated, so if you're expecting Winter gloves to keep your fingers warm staying still, these are not it. However, they do cut out the windchill affect and will allow your hands to warm up after 1-3 miles of moderate running at freezing temperatures (28-34 F). The headbands are a nice touch too, they allow for plenty of adjustment. They keep my ears warm and AirPods in place well. I would recommend trying these out if you haven't found any good ones yet.
Bought for my son that's Military, was going on deployment (so you know there were put to the test)! Super fast shipping, got to him on time! He said they were well made, fit great. Warm, he disnt use them when working out but when outside in minus 20 weather when on patrol and they could remove other types of gloves to check their phones, ect!! He recommended them to all of his buddies! Will be buying agian in the near future. Another deployment is just around the corner.
I live in Florida but it does get chilly outside. I ride a motorcycle and hate having to wear gloves so the thinner, the better. I thought I would try these and for the price, even if I hated them I wouldn't really be out anything. I've been wearing my gloves a couple months now. I can wear them in 55 degree weather in the dark and my hands are not cold. They aren't toasty warm but they aren't uncomfortably cool. If I were riding more than an hour, I might consider different gloves but I LOVE these gloves. I will definitely buy more in the future when these wear out. They also don't allow the wind in as much as I thought they might.
I’ve worn these almost every day for the last two weeks. Super comfy, great fit, and inside is warm - so far they’ve held up to keeping my hands warm in 30 degree running weather. Would definitely recommend.
Thin, very flexible gloves , good down to about a "windy" 40F or so. Below that you may need a thicker glove. Ear "warmer" was unexpected bonus and is excellent!!! Wear it every time I walk, since it's been cold out. highly recommended.
