Get Your iRunFar Black Diamond Gloves! (Also Hats/Visors)

Last July at Hardrock checkin, a pair of gloves instantly caught my eye. “Those gloves are exactly iRunFar color,” I thought to myself as I picked up a pair. Closer inspection revealed a pair of Black Diamond fleece gloves (specifically Polartec Power Grid) that looked like the perfect weight for mildly-cold-to-cold runs. I wanted a pair, but no luck as I wasn’t in the race. Well, I did some digging, got enough pairs for me and about 100 iRunFar fans, and had the iRunFar logo sublimated on to each glove. How about that?!

I’ve worn these gloves a bunch since receiving a sample pair. So far, they’ve been great on runs as well as walking around outside down to 20F (-6C), which is the coldest I’ve encountered so far this mild autumn. I’d imagine they’ll take me at least another 20F/10C degrees colder while running… but I tend to run warm, and they’re definitely running-weight gloves rather than Arctic-expedition warmth.

The gloves and their sizing are unisex. See sizing details below.

Note: The black patches on the thumb and forefinger are nominally for touch-screen compatibility; however, I have found them NOT to work and disavow that feature here.

Here’s what Black Diamond writes of their MidWeight GridTech Gloves:

Technical stretch-fleece liners designed to be worn under a shell or as a super lightweight stand-alone, the MidWeight GridTech gloves are highly compressible with a grid fleece interior and a high warmth-to-weight ratio.

Description
Stretchy liners that provide efficient, highly breathble insulation under a shell glove or as a lightweight stand-alone, the Black Diamond MidWeight GridTech gloves feature a warm yet lightweight grid fleece that traps warmth in gridded channels without inhibiting breathability. These midweight, quick-drying liners also feature suede leather palm patches for secure grip.

  • 129 g Polartec® Power Grid fabric with grid fleece backing
  • Silicone printed palm for added grip

Tech Specs

  • Weight Per Pair: 25 g (0.9 oz)
  • Temperature Range: -4/4 ºC (25/40 ºF)

SHIPPING

We have these gloves on hand, I’m in the office in the coming weeks, and will be shipping domestically via USPS Priority Mail. In other words, folks ordering in the US should have these gloves within a week of ordering… tops.

Yes, we do ship internationally, and those orders will go out quickly. Please know that international orders almost always take a couple weeks to arrive. Be patient. :-)

ORDER HERE

We’ve got just over 100 pairs of these gloves and when they’re gone, they’re gone forever. I’m pretty sure we’ve got the entire remaining stock of this color.

We’re now offering the gloves for just $25, rather than their $40 MSRP. Thanks to the kindness of Black Diamond, all of the proceeds (less the printing costs) equal dollar for dollar support for iRunFar. So, get a great pair of gloves while showing your support for iRunFar!

  • I ordered these in size S but need an XS instead. I tried to send an email through the website but it doesn't seem to be working. Can I send them back and exchange them? Happy to pay shipping again for the new pair.
