5 Top Running Gloves 2019/2020 – For Winter Running

Welcome to our list of Best Winter Running Gloves for cold-weather exercise. The main questions to consider when buying running gloves are:

  • Do they fit well and are they comfortable?
  • Will they keep your hands warm in the extreme cold? Do you even run in those temperatures?
  • Are they windproof gloves or breathable gloves?
  • Are they reflective gloves for night running?
  • Can you operate your phone/GPS running watch with them on?
  • Are they good value for money?

I have been asking all these questions while researching the best winter gloves on the market, so you don’t have to. See below for the Top 5 gloves for cold weather running.

TrailHeads Lightweight Running Gloves

Best running gloves TrailHeads Running Gloves trail and kale trail runningTrailHeads Lightweight Running Gloves have mesh insets that help regulate body temperature and provide ventilation so you won’t have to worry about the annoyance of finishing a run carrying your gloves. They are great for those chilly early morning or evening workouts and are ideal for between seasons when the temperatures fluctuate so much. They can also make excellent winter base layers when used in combination with a thicker glove.

With touch screen technology, they allow you to adjust your music selection, monitor your workout app, text your friends, or take a photo without having to remove your gloves.

NOTE: These gloves are designed are not intended for stand-alone use in extremely cold weather. If you intend to be running in extremely cold conditions then take a look at the Outdoor Research PL400 Sensor Gloves instead.

PROS

  • The fabric is lightweight and has moisture-wicking technology so it dries quickly to prevent your sweat from soaking the material and freezing your hands.
  • Conductive fabric on thumb and forefinger enables use of touch screen devices.
  • The mesh accents on these gloves allow for cooling during long workouts.
  • Double layer stretch cuffs ensure a secure and comfortable fit.
  • Very cheap running gloves with great quality.

CONS

  • Not for the extreme cold

Smartwool Liner Gloves

Best running gloves Smartwool Liner Gloves trail and kale trail running

I like how the Smartwool Liner Gloves‘ touch screen friendly thumb and forefingers fly under the radar due to a special fabric that has been subtly woven. This makes them the best wool running gloves in our list and a very versatile glove that can be worn casually as well as jogging gloves. They are also thin enough to be worn as a liner inside a much hardier glove if you plan to be in extremely cold weather for very long periods of time, like ski-touring for example.

NOTE: These gloves are designed are not intended for stand-alone use in extremely cold weather. If you intend to be running in extremely cold conditions then take a look at the Outdoor Research PL400 Sensor Gloves instead.

PROS

  • Versatile, stylish and lightweight knit for ease of movement.
  • Great for shoulder season running
  • Rib-knit cuff for a non-ruffled fit on your wrist, this makes them great liner gloves too.
  • Knitted touch screen compatible thumbs and index fingers that you wouldn’t know were there, unlike some other gloves that have stuck-on patches that feel somewhat out of place.

CONS

  • Not for the extreme cold


TrailHeads Power Stretch Lightweight Running Gloves

The stretch fabric moves with you for a comfortable fit that never loses its shape.

During the fall and winter running seasons, they serve as excellent racing gloves given they’re lightweight and flexible.

Palm grips make it easy to hold your smartphone device while touch screen technology makes texting possible! This means you can adjust your music, monitor workout apps, and take photos, all without having to remove your gloves in the cold weather.

NOTE: These gloves are designed are not intended for stand alone use in extreme cold weather. If you intend to be running in extremely cold conditions then take a look at the Outdoor Research PL400 Sensor Gloves instead.

PROS

  • The Polartec stretch fabric is a smooth, durable outer layer that is wind resistant. They have a moisture wicking, inner layer providing maximum thermal efficiency.
  • Touch screen compatible: Conductive fabric on tips of thumb and forefinger enables use of touchscreen devices.
  • The diamond-shaped grips enhance dexterity and these gloves have a terry cloth brow wipe on the back of the hand.
