Favorite running gloves
December 07, 2010

I love these. While running, wear them all the time form October til March in Texas. just bought a second pair to wear around and keep in the pocket of my fleece jacket. Not the warmest and not wind proof, but for the majority of cool/cold mornings, they are just right.

Fantastic Design
November 06, 2012

Love the fit, find the design to be great overall. Feels lightweight and minimally noticeable on my hands. My previous running gloves had seams right at the fingers that would sit under my fingernail. Wasn't uncomfortable, but irritating. I don't have that with the MHW Momentums. It's currently 40-50 degrees F where I live, late fall, and they are a good warmth. I plan to run all winter through and wonder how they will do. MHW does make a thicker glove for winter but I wanted a year round option and this seems to be the perfect option.

Pros: fit, comfort

Great for running
September 19, 2010

As another reviewer pointed out, one is able to operate an iPhone without having to remove these gloves. These gloves are perfect for Fall running (MH makes other gloves for colder temps), providing just enough warmth from the elements. Thoughtful features include an area to wipe one's nose during a run and a snap to hold the gloves together in order to attach them to a hydration pack/belt. Dexterity and reflectivity for safety are great. Although the description is "snug, low profile", the fit is standard (these run true to size - not loose-fitting or tight-fitting).

nice glove
June 18, 2011

Bought these to use on some high altitude hiking on the Colorado Trail later this summer, but I just had to try them out. So, I took them for a 6000 foot early hike. I was pleased that they allowed me to still work my slr camera without removing them. They are comfortable, look great, and apparently suitable for the purpose whcih they were purchased. They were a bit hard to get off, but that is the down side of a tight fit. Thanks to altrec for the usual prompt service.


Great Gloves for any cool weather activity
August 07, 2010

These gloves are great and I use them allot, even in the dead of winter as a glove liner. I use an iPhone and these gloves allow you to answer and make calls without taking them off. It takes a little practice to get it right but very helpful when it's very cold. I wasn't talking about the trap door, but if you want to bang out a quick text message or something, then you need the trap door for that. They also fit well and don't have tags inside of them that irritate like the Butter Glove liners. They even have a little bit of water repelling ability and can block some wind if not severe. Highly Recommended.

Best Running Gloves Ever!
January 25, 2012

A windproof backside joins a super soft palm to make them a pleasure to pull on in cold weather. The reflective details make these a good choice for road runs.

Great for running
December 25, 2010

Great gloves for running. Not too tight of a fit. Snot wiping section works well. Doesn't chafe your nose. My favorite thing is the great dexterity. Warm and thin. Great to about 10 deg F.


Great warmth-to-weight
December 13, 2010

After having used these gloves during two trail runs in excess of four hours, with temperatures in the mid-20s, I'm impressed so far by the warmth-to-weight ratio. They feel like they'd be too thin to offer any kind of warmth, but have found that they do an impressive job. That said, these aren't the most durable gloves on the market - the lack of overlays on the palms in particular. They're absolutely fantastic for a road run, but if you're a trail junkie and find yourself scrambling over downed trees, these aren't the best choice. Also the fingertip access point in the index finger of these gloves doesn't work as well as advertised. But if you're looking for warmth, and the durability and fingertip access points aren't important to you, these gloves are a winner.

Great Product!!!
November 21, 2011

These gloves are great! I wear them trail running 10 - 15 mile runs. Warm but never make you sweat. Sizing is true. Nothing beats the soft side for a little runny nose.

I have a problem with my fingers when running in the cold weather. These gloves have really helped me out. They have worked out great in temperatures of 30 degrees and above. Under 30 degrees, they are very useful as an insert in another pair of gloves. They start out slow but later into your run they are warm and comfortable.

great gloves
January 19, 2012

fit snug, thumb not too long which I find with Arcteryx gloves, soft material, reflective aterial a plus for night running, looking forward to using them in cool weather

Great glove for running
January 01, 2011

These gloves are perfect for the trail, light, wind protection on the backs of the hands. Love the index finger holes to manipulate my iphone with ease. Great functionality. They could be warmer, but if you are active with them they are perfect.

Good running gloves for lower 30s
January 07, 2011

I wanted try these gloves for long time and finally ordered them, and I'm happy with them. I've been wearing them in mid to lower 30s while I run for 3~8 miles daily and these gloves are standing up really well. Though, I don't think they will be warm enough for temp below upper 20s due to thin-ish material. The reflective material is HUGE plus, and they don't look like crossing guard at school, yet they are big enough to get attention of incoming traffic. I've used other companies gloves and thier always lack that 360 reflectivity (even major running companies...) I really like that Mountain Hardware is making progress on running gear and I'm sure I will be spending more! (I'm also wearing MH Geist vest / jacket too, great sets)

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use

Mountain Hardwear Momentum
March 16, 2013

The Momentum gloves were the first gloves I ever bought for the specific purpose of running in the cool NorCal mornings/evenings and are well suited for the task with a few small drawbacks that keep them from being the perfect running glove - fit and lack of touchscreen support. I have several other Mountain Hardwear gloves and the Men's M is generall perfect in finger length, girth, etc but the Monentum feel like the fingers are longer while the girth seems tighter than other mediums from Mountain Hardwear. It's not intolerable but the fit does seem different than what I'm accustomed to. Secondly, not having touchscreen access in general isn't always a bad thing as it's great to disconnect but more and more I find runnign with my iPhone for Pandora and/or using Map My Run and it's tough when you have to pull the glove off to use the phone. Not a dealbreaker but I would use these gloves every time if they had touchscreen response. MH's Stimulus glove fills that role nicely. All in all a great running glove.

Pros: fleece feels great against the hand, materials breathes, Cons: slightly long finger fit

These have become my go to pair for windy days and temps 30 degrees F and above. Good fit, very light weight, repel moisture and able to hit Garmin or open a gel without getting sticky. Below freezing can use them as liners but will not be enough.

Nice Gloves
April 06, 2012

I live in upstate new york and was looking for a pair of running gloves to wear all winter. I wore these gloves every time I went running this past winter and never had cold fingers. However, the winter was unusually warm. I suspect that you would want something warmer if the temp dropped below zero. Great fit, light weight, good snot wipe, fairly warm. I would recommend these gloves to anyone looking for something to wear in mild to cold temps.
