The 180s ExoLite TI ear warmers are almost identical to the thinner ExoLite. They both use the same innovative folding mechanism, but the TI has thicker pile (Polartec Power Dry) on the inside on a slightly heavier cloth (Polartec Wind Pro) on the outside. Note that the TI does not have the reflective 3M ScotchLite on the outer surface.
The ear covers have the same rubber mount which fits over the lightweight frame. As one would expect, both the ExoLite and ExoLite TI covers are exactly the same size and thus are interchangeable. The removeable covers makes cleaning a snap...just toss them in the cold wash :-)
The 180s Convertible Training Gloves are quite a bit heavier than the Running Gloves. These training gloves have little rubber circles on the palm and two fingers...a nice addition for added grip.
As with the running gloves, these training gloves can quickly convert from mittens to fingered gloves in seconds. The mitten cover is a handy feature for starting out. When everything is pumping and excess heat needs to be shed, they tuck nicely in the the hidden pocket and out of the way.
There is a large sweat wiping area on the back of the hand. We also like the new clip mechanism on these. A small detail, we know, but the clip on the convertible running gloves did manage to work itself off fromt the glove at some point and made good its escape.
The glove comes in M, L, XL. Those with small hands may find these gloves to be a bit on the roomy side :-) However, we think having the versatility more than make up for the problem.
