The Extreme Thermo Mitt is a perfect for the cold weather. They give you a good amount of insulation while the Polartec Alpha does a great job of helping manage warmth and moisture when you are working hard.
The EXTREME THERMO MITT boasts innovative Polartec Alpha insulation which regulates warmth and transfers moisture. This breathable running mitt is designed for keeping hands warm and to keep you running in the winter when the conditions are cold. Mobile devices can be operated while wearing the mitt. The silicone grip pattern on the palms are useful when running with poles.
Inov8's Extreme Thermo Mitts are well designed to keep you warm in cold winter conditions while the helping manages the heat and moisture. The design appears simple and effective but there are some great features to make these gloves a good choice for active pursuits in the winter.
They provide instant warmth when you put them on with Polartec Alpha insulation. This insulation also works well at regulating the heat and moisture you normally encounter while running and hiking. Although I found them a touch too warm for running (I usually struggle with overheating in most gloves) I can see these being great for those needing extra warmth in cold weather. The wide elasticated cuff, silicone grip print and touchscreen friendly design makes these much more comfortable and usable than expected. The reflective design on the back of the mitt is a nice touch for those dark urban runs.
