There’s nothing worse than heading out for a long winter run, only to have your fingers freeze despite your best glove-wearing intentions. Mittens are the warmest solution, trapping the heat your fingers produce when enclosed together. Our NDO Mittens utilize a layering approach: a water-resistant softshell mitten for protection from the elements on the outside and a lightweight glove for warmth on the inside. Wear them together on the coldest days or separately as it gets more temperate.

More Than A Mitten
The secret to a great running mitten starts from the outside in. On the mitten's exterior, we use the same highly water-and-wind resistant softshell fabric as our NDO Jacket. Then, for added insulation and moisture-control, we lined the mitten with a bonded Merino wool. Inside that, you'll find a five-finger glove, which is made from a lighter nylon-elastane blend.
For the external mitten, we selected a technical softshell that is water and wind resistant and then bonded it to a 100% Merino wool liner. On the underside, we used our Inverno Blend on the palm and thumbs, for a little softness when you need to wipe your face or nose.
Not only does the external mitten add warmth, but the layers created between the external and internal gloves trap warm air.
Nothing is worse than losing a mitten. We included small magnetic fasteners in the wrist of each pair for keeping things together before and after the run.
Mittens have been a cold-weather necessity for thousands of years - some of the oldest known versions come from medieval Latvia. For centuries, the mitten was the cornerstone of Latvian women’s wedding trousseaus and knit with unique and meaningful patterns.
