The Science Behind It
There’s no big secret to why you should get your running gloves and mittens, but we’ll explain the science behind the importance of keeping your hands warm. When you’re outside running in the cold weather, your body is focused on keeping your core and internal organs warm. This means, less blood is pumped to your extremities (aka your feet and hands). You have probably noticed that when your hands are cold, they turn white, that’s exactly due to the decrease in blood flow. Especially as you run, your hands are constantly apart from your core, and as you swing your arms while running, you’re being exposed to the wind.
The Perfect Gloves
There's no such thing as a perfect... of course there is a perfect glove! It is important to wear a good quality glove during your runs. Therefore, at the same time you want to keep your hands warm, you also want a material that won’t overheat it and over sweat it…right?!
