Sport Gloves & Mittens
Nowadays, sport gloves and mittens are not only a beautiful accessory but an absolutely necessary thing for doing sports. With their help, you can improve the quality of the training process, as well as protect yourself from sprains and injuries. Training gloves are the most effective protection against calluses on the hands.
Types of Sport Gloves
- Baseball/softball glove. The glove must be made of quality materials. It is best if it is leather. The seams should be made of strong, thick threads. You need to choose the right size for your hand according to the manufacturer's softball glove size chart. There are some mens softball gloves where the size is adjustable. Such models are not suitable for professional players, but they will be very comfortable for a child. If you are left-handed, you should buy a left-hand throw baseball glove. In such models, the thumb of the glove is located on the left side.
- Winter sport gloves/mittens. Insulated membrane gloves are suitable for various types of winter activities. Most often, synthetic fibers act as insulation. They dry very quickly. The membrane creates an additional barrier, which slightly reduces heat losses. Leather gloves are usually warmer than synthetic ones. Mittens also are warmer than any gloves with the same weight and insulation. For the coldest conditions, gloves with a built-in heating element will be the best option.
- Training gloves. Gloves for the gym are made of leather, polyester, or neoprene. In addition, the inner part of the palm has a high protection of friction, due to which the sports equipment does not slip in the hands. First of all, gloves are excellent protection for hands from calluses or other injuries that occur during regular workouts with sports equipment. Moreover, all equipment is used by other athletes, leaving a variety of bacteria or viruses on it. As a result, gloves are a kind of barrier against skin diseases.
