Now is the glorious time of year when we get to transition from crisp fall runs to winter trekking, snowshoeing and XC skiing adventures. Looking for a versatile, glove that will preserve your digits and move seamlessly into the next season, we decided to give Gordini a look.
Since 1956, Gordini has been honing their ability to keep you snug in all your winter adventures, and with all that experience, it’s no surprise they’ve come up with a new way to keep us comfy. The ERGOknit is the first glove made with a 3D knit process. This process eliminates 80% of the seams, found in a standard pair of winter gloves, allowing for more dexterity and less bulk. In my experience, the result is a glove that feels much more streamlined, and light-weight, even with the cozy fleece inside, than comparable gloves. In addition, the rib knit at the wrist is snug without being too tight and is stiff enough to stay put under jacket sleeves.
With the current weather here in Utah, I’ve only been able to test them out in fall conditions, however, I did take them for a higher elevation trail run with a dusting of snow, and they remained very comfortable in the cold. Obviously, the gloves aren’t meant for alpine climbing and other extreme cold situations, but they’ll be perfect for high-sweat, blood pumping sports, and I’m pretty stoked to get them out XC skiing. I’ll be sure to update their performance as we roll into colder winter temps.
The strategically-placed silicone grip moves well, but I did lose a few bits when doing some rock scrambling–nothing I’m too concerned about though. Touch-screen compatible material on the glove is very handy, and almost a necessity for those of us who don’t have the luxury of being unreachable on a daily basis. Overall, I can easily say, the Gordini ERGOknit Gloves are a great choice for fall to winter gloves, and anyone who spends a lot of time outside in the winter can attest to the importance of finding a good pair of gloves.
