Q:

What are the best spring gloves?

I need a pair of gloves for springtime hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and maybe even some late-season ice climbing. What do you recommend?

A:Another great option is Manzella's Silkweight Windstopper glove ($35). I was initially skeptical that these would be warm enough—the material looks ultra-lightweight—but Manzella made them with Gore Windstopper, and when hiking or climbing, my hands have stayed comfortable into the upper 20s. For a little extra warmth, they work well layered over a pair of silk glove liners. My only gripe is durability, as they seem to wear through after two years of use.
