Mountain Hardwear Power Stretch glove

Mh_ps_gloveSpring is in the air, and numb fingers can't be far behind. As usual the glove bin is full of mismatched gear. If you're in the same boat and looking for a lightweight glove for casual or liner duty, the Mountain Hardwear Power Stretch gloves are a great candidate.

Power Stretch recently won a Nobel prize. OK that's not true, but it could be the way they're giving them away these days. MH's gloves are a standard light but not too light design. Their big advantage is the snug cuff; it feels secure while jogging and keeps them on your hands when you pull your mittens off.

Another nice touch is the snaps, which can help prevent lost-glove syndrome. But only if you actually use it. Oops. Keep in mind these are not grippy gloves. Power Stretch is a fairly slick material – not for driving! – designed for light insulation and high breathability, i.e. medium wind blocking. Also these are not constructed like a work glove, so if you're looking for traction, weatherproofitude and durability look elsewhere. For jogging, hiking and liner applications they're great.
