Difference between gloves and mittens
Is there a difference between gloves and mittens when skiing or snowboarding? Absolutely! You might have already noticed that mittens are more popular among snowboarders than skiers. This is mainly due to the fact that most skiers use ski poles, and it’s easier to hold ski poles when you’re wearing gloves – although it’s certainly not impossible to ski when wearing mittens. One advantage of mittens over gloves is that four out of five fingers are in one compartment. This means that body heat emitted by your hand stays in this one compartment, keeping your hands warmer. So ski mittens or snowboard mittens are ideal for people who tend to suffer from cold hands!
Waterproof ski gloves for men
If your hands get wet during the first snow shower, it’s impossible to then keep them warm. If your gloves get wet and the cold wind blows against them, there’s no coming back from that. When you’re out in the snow it’s super important that your ski gloves or ski mittens are waterproof. That’s why we’ve treated all of our men’s gloves and mittens with a water-resistant coating, which means that melting snow is less likely to leak through. All our ski gloves and mittens also have an inner glove with Climashield™ insulation, which keeps your hands dry and warm in the most extreme conditions.
Warm ski gloves for men
However, the waterproofing isn’t the only characteristic of the glove or mitten that keeps your hands warm. All our men’s ski gloves and ski mittens are also lined with Bemberg™ fabric. Bemberg is the brand name for cupro, a breathable fibre with micro pores that quickly absorbs moisture and has good wicking properties. As a result, perspiration doesn’t even get a chance to moisten the gloves or mittens, which would otherwise make your hands cold when the chilly wind blows against them. Bemberg™ fabric is also wonderfully soft and is therefore incredibly comfortable to wear.
Other useful features
But that’s not all! All our women’s gloves and mittens also have a soft piece of fabric on the thumb, which you can use to wipe your nose without it becoming chapped. All our gloves and mittens for men also have a Velcro fastening and an elastic fastening, so you can adjust the gloves or mittens to be as tight as you like and keep out the snow and wind. All the features of our men’s gloves are designed to let you enjoy the slopes to the fullest, because, in the end, that’s what it’s all about!
Choosing the right size
The size of a glove or mitten is determined by the distance between the tip of your middle finger and the beginning of your wrist. You can easily measure this distance yourself using a tape measure. You can then check our size chart for gloves and mittens to find out which size you need to order: S, M, L or XL. You can find this size chart on the product page of all our men’s gloves and mittens.
