The Spyder Women's Opal GORE-TEX® Gloves offers serious protection from the cold. The fabric is constructed out of the Xt.Lamanate™ which is an ultra-thin membrane that delivers superior waterproofness and breathability. This technology results in pliable fabrics that are lightweight yet durable. XT.L benefits include stretch recovery, which maintains the integrity of the fabric after seasons of hard core use. The insulation is Primaloft one® insulation is the ultimate down like insulation. Soft, lightweight and water repellant, it absorbs 3x less water, is 15 % warmer when wet than the closest competitive insulation. The outside is treated with SPYLON™ a durable water repellent finish applied to the fabric exterior to prevent the garment from absorbing surface moisture. These gloves also have a GORE-TEX®liner. GORE-TEX® membranes keep your hands warm, dry, and comfortable by letting your perspiration evaporate out through the fabric while preventing liquid water penetration from the outside. Goat skin leather on the palm grants you enhanced tactility. Zipper cuffs with gusset make it easier to get in and out of these gloves. A mid length cuff gauntlet allows you more protection. The glove also has a soft chamude nose wipe on thumb.
