Reflective Brisk Run Gloves
Cool reflective gloves
Good news: very cool, reflective material makes these perfect for early morning or night runs when it is dark out.
Bad news: I had these for about 3 months and the stitching along the thumb started to unravel. I used them about 2-3 days a week from February-April and I expected these to last longer.
Final thought: I would recommend these just because I love the iphone friendliness and the reflective materials covering the back of the hand. Just get ready to buy a new pair every few months.

Love you lulu, but these aren't the greatest
I normally love everything I get from Lulu and the quality is usually spot on, but after wearing these for some runs the fingertips are fraying! Really sad since I loved that I could use them with my touchscreen phone and this was the reason I initially bought them. Was hoping I wouldn't have to worry about them falling apart on me. Wouldn't recommend them for the price.

Great for Multitasking Runners
Bought these so I could use my Nike running app while running, which requires me to pause my run whenever I want to change a playlist. They work exactly as specified!! No need to take off the gloves while running anymore!
I don't live in an area where it snows, so I can't speak to how they perform in extremely cold temps. They seem to dry quickly, so bonus points there!
I've washed these three times, and haven't experienced the discoloring.

1st gen was great!
I own pair of the first generation of these gloves. I am not a runner anymore, but use these as my regular winter gloves. They're great and the dry super fast from being wet from the snow.

Keep hands warm but breaking down
I bought these b/c of ability to use iphone while wearing them. They do work to keep my hands warm during cold, winter runs. However, the special material on thumb and forefinger for texting is breaking down after washes and turning this ugly rust-looking color. Very unappealing. I always let them air dry, so it's frustrating to think that simple washing breaks them down this way. Pretty disappointing....

Really wanted to love these...
I loved the concept of these gloves and finally broke down after Christmas and bought myself a pair. The finger tips work like a charm for using my iPhone on the run and the gloves fit great.
Unfortunately, LuluLemon really dropped the ball on quality for these gloves. A month after receiving them, the finger tips are frayed, the mesh material has multiple holes and tears, and the gloves look completely worn out.
I adore LuluLemon, but these gloves have left me more than a little disappointed!!

I've had these gloves for a month now and haven't had a problem with them. I wear them everyday as they are super functional. Their cute and perfect for chilly weather. Their also perfect for driving. I wouldn't wear them in really cold weather as the material is too thin but then again their not made for when the weather is -20. The text tips are definitely an added bonus!

Fun and functional gloves
Cute, warm and functional. Not sure about quality yet haven't washed them. Love the touchscreen finger tips. Stripes are cute. They are warm for 40 and up but if it is below 35 maybe you need some warmer gloves. Great for running in because your body temp warms up when running anyway.

Great mitts--until they weren't
I got these in early January. I wear them exclusively for running, and most days I am pushing a stroller while I run. The palms have worn through to threadbare.
I'm pretty disappointed by this. They were just the right amount of protection from the elements without making my hands sweat. I would have bought more pairs for next season, but now I won't.

2 months old and the texty finger fabric is frayed
I got these gloves as a gift for Xmas.... so less than 2 months old. Index finger is almost frayed off the glove and the other ones arent far behind. The rest of the glove is beginning to become picky (which seems to be lulu's signature touch)
Washed them by hand once and use them for normal life, texting driving, walking. I was so disappointed in the quality of these gloves. Im embarassed to wear them in front of the person who bought them for me! Terrible quality!
