These gloves are so Lux, you'll want to pack Kleenex when you run (if ya catch our drift). Responsive fingertips and oh so warm, breathable Lux fabric.
- Lux fabric (polyester / spandex)
- touch screen compatible fabric on thumb and pointer finger
- full wrist coverage
- Oiselle woven label
- machine wash cold, tumble dry low
I adore everything in the Lux lineup and have been pleased that these have become my go-to pair of gloves. They are lightweight and thin, but surprisingly keep my hands warm enough even in 15 degrees. With Oiselle's long sleeves being longer than most (which I love), I find that if it's chillier to start, I can pull the sleeves over my hands for an extra layer until I get hot. Most gloves are too warm for me but these fit the bill and are wearable the whole workout.
I bought these gloves with the intention of wearing under another pair of heavier gloves when the temps drop because they looked pretty thin. To my surprise, they have kept my hands really warm in real feel temps of 7* and I don't need an additional pair of gloves.
My only complaint and the reason I am not giving 5 stars is that the fingertips are not touch screen compatible at all. Not sure if it is user error but I just can't get them to work on my phone.
The watch window is amazing and for that reason alone these gloves are a must!
I bought these back in September anticipating cold weather in October. I didn’t need to wear them until recently. The first and only time I wore them, the seam ripped on one of the gloves. I ordered according to the size chart. I didn’t force the gloves on, I simply pulled them on as I would any other pair of glove. I really wanted to love these because the lux collection is my favorite, but the poor stitching quality was very disappointing. Additionally, they are not really that warm. They’d be nice for running errands on a brisk fall/early winter day. I wouldn’t recommend using them for running.
I have several pairs of running gloves (PNW + exercise-induced rhinitis = great need in this area) and when I open the "running stuff" drawer and see that my lux gloves are in it, clean and ready and waiting for me, my heart does a little happy dance. Their softness makes my whole body feel less cold in that first mile— not because softness actually causes warmth, but because comfort offsets discomfort. That is my theory, anyway. Also, the seams aren't bulky and bothersome (which is a weakness in my other gloves). Will buy more when my size is back in stock.
My hands freeze when running so I wear these for any runs where the temp is below 50 degrees (which is nearly all of them in the PNW). These feel super soft and keep my hands warm. I would recommend something warmer for temperatures below freezing though.
These are not meant for snow, Oiselle has other gloves that are good for super cold weather
I have been long awaiting gloves from Oiselle and these are perfect! I love the slim fit that keeps my hand warm, but also does not feel cumbersome or restricting. Having the ability to use your phone with the finger pads on the thumb and index finger is a great feature too! I have long fingers and the s/m still fit perfectly.
I decided to upgrade when I saw these come out, and I am sure glad I did! It was only into the upper 20s, but they kept my hands warm & dry!
