Best Running Gloves !?!?

Ours have won awards...

The title shouldn't be read as a boast (although we like to think so!!), this is more about helping you chose the best glove for a runner - or indeed one for yourself!! ;-)

First things first, choosing a running glove is largely down to personal choice - are you a cold handed person, or actually do you find your hands warm up quickly? You'd be surprised how often I am told "I don't want anything too warm, I hate it when my hands get too warm!"

So let's get the basics out of the way! All of the options I am about to discuss will do the following by default:

  • Wick away moisture - helps keep hands warm as moisture (sweat!) is removed from the inside of the glove to the outside!
  • Keeps your hands warm - to a greater or lesser degree - more of that in a mo.
  • Have a modesty strip and eGlove runner Nikki calls it - snot/sweat wipe area to you and me!
  • Fully machine washable! 
  • Silicon grips on the palm of hand and fingers - mainly so you don't drop several hundred quids worth of Smartphone!!
  • Touchscreen compatible fabric on both thumbs and forefingers to allow you to use your device or app of choice in warm, gloved, cosiness!
  • Available in Black / Black - Pink - Black / Green

With that in mind, what are the options?

eGlove Sport is our best selling and multi award winning running glove. It's a thin glove ideal for most people in most conditions. I run in these in temperatures down to -4 or -5 or so, but equally, they help regulate hand temperature, so are great at +10 too! It's a very comfortable glove, quite silky in feel and just does the job brilliantly! Thousands of customers and several awards can't be wrong!!

Alternatively, for those who suffer with cold hands, run in extreme weather or for ultra distances, perhaps the XTREME is a better option? It's thicker, tighter, with a longer double cuff and has the additional feature of Windstopper fabric which helps keep both the moisture and wind out, without compromising the breathability! These have been used in many XTREME Ultra Runs - most recently Shaun Marsden (aka @spontaneousplan) used them thoughout the 230km Arctic Ice Ultra! So, we say that they are like the Sport Run Glove - just more HARDCORE!!!!

Best of all, like all eGloves if you order something that isn't right - no problem, send it back and we will sort you out an exchange or a refund. Check out the glove guide for more info - here.

Our favourite Sports Trackers

Our favourite Sports Trackers!

One of the whole points of eGlove Touchscreen Sports Gloves is that they enable use of Smartphone Apps with your gloves on! So, with that in mind, we've made a list of our favourite ones!!

Don't agree? Have we missed one? Feel free to add your faves in the comments!

1) Nike + - Android / iOS - FREE - For us, this is where it all began - initially it was the only tracker you could get with an iPod Nano (with foot pod attached to your trainers). It synch'd to Daily Mile and was the most exciting thing ever!! Even now, Nike + is a great app with plenty of functionality. I've always found it accurate and easy to use. It's number 1 given it's importance in the eGlove story, but it's not one I use anymore.

2) Strava - Android / iOS - Free - Strava is our current preferred app for running and cycling. I think it's the community element that makes it so good. Personally I don't find it particularly accurate (overstates), and I find the fact it only goes to 1 decimal point frustrating. Also, the verbal feedback doesn't align with the screen (i.e. the verbal says I have done 3 miles say, and yet the screen is 20 - 30 seconds behind!). Hmmm... Am I actually talking myself out of this one? Have I mentioned the community / group element?

3) Map my Fitness / Map my Run - Android / iOS - Free - What I like about this one is the ability to track many different activities. It might not be the most accurate at doing that, but it's better than nothing!! When running, it's as good as anything else I have tried, but I don't know why it's not my preferred option. Good starter app for anyone getting into fitness - especially as it sych's with My Fitness Pal (another app but this time for counting and recording calories and weight!).

4) Zombies, Run - Android / iOS - Free but needs premium subscription - I tried Zombies, Run as I had heard so much about it. I hadn't thought it through though really as I don't like to wear headphones. Oops! So, Zombies, Run! puts you in the shoes of Runner Five, racing to save your life and the people of Abel Township. Zombies, Run! gamifies your running with radio play-style missions delivering an ever-unfolding storyline for players to enjoy as you run. It's pretty cool!

Others - I've tried Endmondo, Runkeeper and Runtastic (all Free on both Android and iOS) - they are all perfectly fine! In the end the key is to find one that does what you want it to! I think I am going back to Nike + perhaps because it's familiar!

Anyway, what do you think? Leave a comment with your faves and why!!
