Picking the right glove for winter riding can be tricky. Too bulky and you lose manual dexterity and use of your fingers. Too slim, and you lose out on warmth and weather protection. Then there’s the first world problem of having to remove your gloves in order to use your smart phone. Craft’s new Hybrid Weather glove offers just that – a hybrid of a glove and mitten, all with smart phone capability built right in.
The bulk of the glove is made from warm, stretchy polyester fabric with a brushed interior for keeping your hands warm in cold weather. Should you need wind and water protection, there is a wind and waterproof mitten cover that stows in the back of the glove. In addition to providing a solid grip with silicone bits, the thumb and index finger have built in pads that allow you to operate a touch screen. Reflective print and piping adds to the winter visibility.
Hybrid Weather gloves are offered in black or high viz yellow for $34.99.
