Gear Review: Outdoor Research Winter Running Gloves

Running outside is feeling pretty chilly these days, especially on my hands. I just picked up a pair of thin, lightweight running gloves that are perfect for keeping my fingers warm — the Women's PL 110 Gloves ($24) by Outdoor Research.

I love that these gloves have a thin fleece lining that's comfy and warm. When it's super cold out, I slide my fingers out of the finger holes and hold my hands in a fist. When my hands heat up, I slide my fingers in their respective slots and they cool off. The outside is similar to softshell material; it's smooth and contours to my hands. I also love that these gloves are tight all over, especially by my wrists, so no air can make its way into the glove to create a chilly draft. The only thing I don't like is that the fabric has started to pill on the palms of gloves. That's just cosmetic though, and I can deal since they do an excellent job keeping my hands toasty. If you don't want to spend a lot of dough, you can pick up a pair of the gloves in blue for only $10 at Gearx.com. What a deal!

I have a pair of gloves, but they don't keep my fingers warm at all. I have bad circulation though, so I have yet to find gloves/socks that keep my fingers/toes warm. The coldest I've run outside is about 15 degrees with 5-8 mph wind, and when I got back, I was afraid that my fingers and toes would have to be amputated, they were so numb and blue. Does anyone know what the minimum temperature is to safely run outside? If there is such a thing...

I just bought the rest of the small gloves that were in stock! Yes, I really do need four pairs. They still have some larges left.

I've had a few OR products as a snowboarder and they've all lasted forever and been excellent. I might have to have these because I can always use gloves.

hmm...I have some gloves now that do absolutely nothing and I've been looking for a replacement, especially since moving to Northern IL. I think I'll give the clearance blue ones a try.
