Running gloves with a “hood” — that’s the premise behind the Manzella Hatchback Convertibles, a glove with a tuck-away windproof finger covering. You start a run with the “hood” covering on, which essentially turns the gloves into mitts. As you warm up, the covering pulls away and tucks in, letting your fingers breathe and regulate heat. A light fleece adds insulation, and a fabric treatment from Schoeller called NanoSphere repels wet snow and sleet. $30, www.manzella.com
