Q:What about gloves?
A:There are as many opinions on the subject of gloves as there are racers. However there are a couple common threads. Seams!! After nearly 2000 miles any misplaced seam will cause blisters. The palms and contact areas should be free of any seams. Water proof gloves are a must. Leave your ‘water resistant’ or DWR gloves at home. Only a durable full membrane liner (GORE-TEX®) will do. Most racers prefer light insulation on the palms and heavy insulation on the back of the hand. The Klim Togwotee fits the bill perfectly.
