Gore-Tex Snow Glove
Why We Like It
For dawn patrol descents and storms days at the resort, we appreciate the warm assistance of our Snow Gloves. Designed with the waterproof protection of Gore-Tex, wet and dry snow alike doesn't stand a chance, and we used supple goatskin leather because we know how to endure cold winter weather without wearing out our gear. We made sure that they can clip to our pack when we're between runs, and we equipped them with wrist leashes so we don't find ourselves missing a glove at the end of an unlucky lift ride.
Benchmark for waterproof, breathable performance
Gore-Tex is a synthetic laminate that features thousands of tiny holes small enough to prevent water droplets from penetrating but large enough to allow water vapor to escape. This combination prevents snow and rain from reaching layers while still allowing hot air and water vapor to escape so that you stay dry from inside and out.
Unlike synthetics, we know leather can produce a uniquely durable product that is going to last more than a season or two. In addition to longevity, our goat leather waterproofs well, and delivers a soft, supple touch that—with proper care—only gets better with age.
Lightweight, water-resistant warmth
Synthetic fill is built to mimic the insulating effects of down with the added bonus of maintaining warmth when wet. Instead of plumage, it uses polyester and other synthetic materials to trap air pockets and keep your body heat close. The water-resistant attributes of the fill fabrics prevent the fill from collapsing when wet, which is what allows it to trap heat even when fully saturated. While its ability to insulate when wet is superior to down, synthetic insulation is slightly heavier and less packable then the natural plumage that makes up down insulation.
