Description

Show Description

Designed for multi-day use and built for variable tending toward harsh conditions, these are excellent gloves for skiing, mountaineering and alpine climbing. Gear tester Chris Geisler was wearing a prototype pair when he attempted a new route on the SE ridge of Cerro Torre. Descending from a high point just 60m from the summit, he pretty much trashed his test pair during a full night of rappelling through a whiteout, but he was still psyched about their fit, dexterity and durability.

  • Shell is made of durable 4-way stretch-woven nylon and spandex.
  • Excellent DWR helps shed wetness.
  • Waterproof-breathable polyurethane insert keeps your hands dry and comfortable.
  • Goatskin leather palms for durability, with digital goatskin overlays.
  • Kevlar stitching for superb dexterity and durability.
  • 100g Hyperloft insulation on the hand backs adds mid-range warmth, with Dryhand polyester lining to keep heat in.
  • Wool fleece palm lining adds warmth without bulk.
  • Under-the-cuff neoprene closure with Velcro tab customizes the fit and seals out the elements.
  • Carabiner loop lets you hang them from a harness or to dry.

Windproofness

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
