Double-Velour Fleece Mittens For Winter Running
Getting going in the cold is hard. Soft, cozy accessories help make it a little easier. We loved the velvety double velour fleece used in our Franklin family, and thought it would be ideal for a running mitten. Warm yet breathable, soft yet durable, the Franklin Mittens are sure to become your winter go-to.
There's nothing worse than loosing a mitten. Ours feature internal magnets on the cuffs to help you keep these together in your pocket, bag or drawer.
These ultra-soft and warm mittens are made from a lightweight and wicking double velour Polartec® fleece selected for its performance on the run.

Mittens have been a cold-weather necessity since the Middle Ages. The science is simple: your fingers generate more warmth when they’re nestled together. The mitten traps their warm air inside. Since runners produce heat in the form of sweat, we selected a double-velour fleece that's not only warm and insulating, but also wicks moisture and dries in a snap.
Remember those strings you had on your mittens as a kid? They were genius. Our Franklin Mittens come with a loss prevention tool of their own in the form of hidden magnets in the cuff.
In 1981, Massachusetts-based Polartec® first engineered polyester fibers into an innovative knit construction with a lofted fiber structure that created thermal air pockets to prevent heat loss and regulate core warmth. Their invention, known as polar fleece, transformed the industry and was the most durable and versatile insulation and outerwear fabric of its day. Continuously refined over forty years, this Okeo-Tex and Bluesign-certified fleece remains a cold-weather performance stalwart for its lightweight warmth and fast-drying characteristics.
