Simple and warm!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Bought these for my pops this winter and he seems pretty happy with them. He's more of a biker than runner though, so he mentioned that he wishes they had more grip to them, but using them solely for a cool weather run should be fine. He mentioned they were a nice, lightweight design, and large enough for long fingers. Pretty solid bang for your buck on these overall though!
Good, simple glove.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Got the North Face Runners Glove not actually for running (though I have since used them for outdoor winter exercise) and they were a good purchase. Lightweight and breathable while still being warm enough for everyday use/chores. I primarily use them for warmth while walking to and from my car in the morning and at night. I have yet to test out the palm side key pocket due to the fact that taking my house key on and off my keyring is more of a pain than just taking the whole thing with me so I cannot testify to that feature but overall the gloves work great.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
These gloves are great for running in early spring or fall. For me my hands are my weak link when running so I need a full winter glove when the temps drop below 40 degrees but for all other temps these are perfect.
One note is I followed the size guide when ordering and purchased an XL but had to return for a larger.
- Fit: Runs small
I purchased these for my 10 year old son. The size was completely off. They were super tight. At the right size they would probably be great.
Good running glove
Given their name, the gloves achieve their goal of being a runner's glove. The backs of the hands are protected effectively from wind, while the palm is very breathable. The lack of any padding or reinforcement for the mesh on the palm makes this a running/walking only glove. The index fingers do have etip and work with my iPhone without issues. The palm-side pocket is a good idea, but the opening is very small, and only a very normal sized house key will fit. Anything larger than typical (i.e. car key, etc) will be difficult to get into the pocket without damaging the glove I think. Good for temps into the teens Fahrenheit. I was exactly between a small and medium on the sizing guide and went with a small for better fit.
Does this have the etip? Looks like it...

It does indeed have a capacative touch capability built into the fingertips. Type away while out on the trail!
