The hand, and especially the palms of the hand, are very unique areas when it comes to cooling.
The palms of the hands contain structures that are called AVA’s (arteriovenous anastomoses). These are a concentrated network of small arteries and veins which work like radiators or heat exchangers. This results in these areas being able to potentially exchange relatively larger amounts of heat or cold than their surface area alone would dictate.
Providing cooling to hands can be effective in improving comfort and helping reduce the sweating response (1, 3).
Coolture developed a unique product for cooling the palms -- the only palm cooling accessory available. The "fingerless glove" is constructed from performance spandex, resulting in a snug but comfortable fit.
One CoolPak slips into the concealed pocket of each glove, with a thumbhole that positions the hidden CoolPak directly onto your palms.
You can either remove the cooling gloves to free your hands for gripping -- or continue your cooling experience by sliding the gloves onto your wrists!
When worn on the wrists, Coolture cooling gloves can provide therapeutic relief from carpal tunnel syndrome.

I am so glad that I found these gloves! I have MS and cannot tolerate heat very well, so as the days are getting hotter the temp inside the gym is increasing as well (A/C can only do so much) and my workouts have been suffering. Since I started using the cooling gloves, my body temp is much more stable and I am able to get in a full workout without having to stop every few minutes to stand in front of a fan so I can cool down. As if that weren’t enough, they are rather cool looking (no pun intended) and I have received multiple compliments on them. I think they’re kind of cute too (I have the 1970 Swirl pattern), and who doesn’t want to look cute at the gym? :)
