I have been using these gloves to train for my first trail race. They have held their own through snow, rain, and wind keeping my hands comfortable so I can focus on running. I had my first race yesterday and it was raining and chilly. I started with the mitt cover on and pulled it off on the go when I got warmed up. They kept me at the perfect temperature and were easy to adjust on the fly. The best gear is the gear you don't have to think about. These will be in my race kit for years.
