There's a chill in the air and a frost on the ground, so you better pull on some gloves when you head outside for your morning trail run. The SmartWool PhD Hyfi Training Glove is lightweight and dextrous, with a terry back knit fabric that's slightly stretchy and reinforced at the thumb and index finger. It has silicone grippers in case you stop at the deserted jungle gym to knock out some quick pull-ups on the icy monkey bars, and is even touch-screen-compatible, so you can check your phone or your workout stats when you're crunching through fallen leaves on your way down the street for a coffee.

Wool blend, good fit, maintain dexterity

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Lots of my gloves/mitts get stanky with use--no surprise. I'm a big fan of wool and thought I'd give these wool blend gloves a go for winter snowbiking. As I use insulated pogies (things on the handlebars that shroud your hands/wrists while gripping the handlebars) I needed a glove that allowed dexterity while biking and some protection from the elements when taking a short break from riding. These have performed perfectly for my use. And after one winter, the wool and overall breathability of the glove seems to keep the sweat stank at bay. I see they are now on sale--that overcomes my only beef...pushing $50 for a mild weather or liner glove is a bit spendy given the other options out there. But--they are wool (blend) and smartwool has been solid to deal with on the odd problem I've ever had (had a stitched seam give out on a jacket--replaced with the new model at no charge--no receipt or proof of purchase needed).

brisk morning battlers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The PhD Smartwool Hyfi Training Gloves are ideal for running, walking, hiking, or just hanging around camp. I got these to replace a good pair of thin gloves I had gotten years ago at a local outfitter (no brand name, but very solid) and let me tell you these have answered my problems! They are perfect for early morning hikes with a thin top or short sleeve, they are just enough to keep your fingers warm but not sweaty and can act as a great liner! As the other review states, there is minimal grip on the palms which can be good and bad, I actually find myself preferring it because I am able to use them as liners and easily slide them in and out of other gloves or shells. But there are certainly times I would love to have some added grip. Again, I would highly recommend these to someone who is looking for a good pair of thin gloves for running, hiking, walking, or just hanging around camp in.

Kind of a useless glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this glove for outdoor activities. In the photo it appears it has some grip on the palm/finger area but that isn't true. They are so slippery! I literally can't hold my keys or grab anything. So unless you want to touch nothing and simply run/walk around in these, I would suggest avoiding them. They are a great weight though, so am disappointed they are so useless.
