Seirus Solarsphere Brink

Innovative insulation kept testers’ hands toasty.

Brand: Serius

Model: Solarsphere Brink

Warmth Consider them warming huts for your digits: The featherlight Serius Brinks kept our hands cozier than gloves that cost twice as much. The secret: The synthetic insulation absorbs the sun’s infrared rays, which adds about 10°F, according to Seirus. It seems a little gimmicky, but the Brinks kept our fingers warm into the teens during medium-output activity, so we’re sold.

Durability Even after being smashed into the bottom of a pack a hundred times, the Brinks never lost their loft. The tradeoff? Durability: One of our samples popped a seam when we were fiddling with
ski bindings.

Features The touchscreen-compatible thumb and forefinger let us snap photos without going gloveless. m’s S-XL, w’s S-L
