Choosing High Quality Winter Ski Gloves

You don’t want numb fingers and frozen palms when you are out skiing. To enjoy your ski trip to the fullest, invest in a good pair of ski gloves that will keep your hands warm and agile for those swift swerves and sharp turns. Here are some helpful tips when choosing high quality, durable ski gloves:

1. Go for waterproof varieties. The best ski gloves are totally waterproof, but are made out of breathable fabrics that allow sweat from your hands to escape. When buying ski gloves, go for ones that are waterproof but won’t trap sweat inside, making your hands uncomfortable, and affecting your grip. Some gloves are simply water-resistant, and while they can keep water out for a certain amount of time, they are no good when you plan on soaking in the snow the whole day.

2. Feel the warmth. While gloves offer less insulation than mitts, they still offer warmth by trapping your own body heat inside. Some varieties even have removable layers so you can adjust warmth according to the environment.

3. Choose a good material. The material used both inside and outside the glove is also an important consideration. Ski gloves should have enough insulation inside and a good grip outside, and while you want hand gear that offers warmth, you don’t want a glove that is so thickly padded that you can’t move your fingers freely for control.

4. Check the closure system. You also want a glove with an efficient closure system that won’t easily come off even when you are going very fast on your skis.

Whatever type or style of winter accessories or clothing you may want, Universal Textiles offers you a wide variety of clothes, ranging from thermal underwear to winter style clothes, footwear, and even fashionable designer clothing for men, women, and children, all available at affordable price points.
