Warm Sports Gloves: How to Protect Your Hands from the Cold

Best equipped for every sport with gloves from THE HEAT COMPANY

If you do sports in cold temperatures, you need the right clothes, but you also have to pay special attention to keeping your hands warm. Your body loses a lot of heat through your fingers when it's cold, which affects your performance and sensitivity during sports. Warm sports gloves not only keep your hands nice and warm, but also offer you protection, comfort and functionality. Our gloves are particularly suitable for outdoor sports activities. Depending on the type of sport and your personal needs, you can choose your perfect glove from various models. Our finger gloves (LINER) can be worn alone during sports in cool temperatures, as they are made of warm and high-quality fabrics. They create a dry and comfortable climate during sports activities by wicking moisture away from the skin. However, in colder weather or snow, a LINER can also be worn as a liner under a mitten, serving as an additional layer of insulation.

Thanks to 4-way stretch, the POLARTEC LINER is highly elastic and feels pleasantly soft against the skin. This makes the POLARTEC LINER the best choice for running.
