Don’t sacrifice dexterity for warmth.
Using Aerogel gel insulation originally used by NASA, this glove's palm virtually eliminates the cold spots that normal gloves get after seasons of use. The rest of the glove is filled with Primaloft’s top-of-the-line Gold insulation for dependable warmth at a surprisingly low weight. Gore-Tex Xtrafit combined with a nylon and spandex blend create a waterproof and windproof exterior without compromising flexibility. This way you can be sure your fingers will be warm enough to get the job done, whatever it may be.

Not Quite Ready for Primetime
These gloves are warm and dexterous without bulk - for the most part. The aerogel inserts are thin and unobtrusive. I think the Bitterblaze could have had an excellent execution to market except that the fingertips are sloppy - so much so that itâs a dealbreaker and these are going back (I have proportional hands and wear a size medium - I know fit varies from person to person). Iâd pass on these and wait for the next iteration. I should note that I bought these for ice climbing. If you want them for some other cold weather activity where fingertip dexterity is not so important they may work for you.

solid ice glove. dexterous enough to lead. good down to high teens with a thin liner for me. below that I go to the projects which i think were a bit more insulated.
Great on Ice
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Used these for a couple of trips to climb in the seracs on the lower Coleman at Mt. Baker, and they kept my hands warm and dry even when top-roping around running water. They're thin and preserve enough finger agility that I can clip draws, tie one-handed cloves, and manage gear comfortably.
Are these gloves for men, women, or unisex? Would they work well for skiing?

They should do great for skiing as well!
