Brooks Adapt Glove II

Running gloves are tough to get right. They are usually either warm but stuffy – making a sweaty jungle in the glove – or they're pervious to the cold, freezing your fingertips. The Brooks Adapt is the first glove we've found that breathes and keeps wind and cold at bay, thanks to a retractable, windproof mitten. When it gets too warm, peel it back; when the frigid winds kick up, it's there to keep your hands protected. [$50; brooksrunning.com]
