Hy­dra Pro OutDry Glove $140

Gripped - - HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE -

Low-prof ile, dex­trous but warm and wa­ter­proof gloves pro­vide a de­sign chal­lenge that the Hy­dra Pro OutDry ap­pears to have solved. A snug f it and pre-cur ved f in­gers make this glove tac­tile when ma­nip­u­lat­ing gear and ty­ing ropes, or eat­ing lunch. The con­struc­tion bonds the wa­ter­proof mem­brane di­rectly to the outer fab­ric for a gapfree f it, en­sur­ing a no-slip grip on ice tools. The leather palm is re­in­forced for dura­bilit y, and stretch ny­lon on the back doesn’t re­strict move­ment, while the syn­thetic in­su­la­tion keeps th­ese gloves warm with­out adding bulk. The low-prof ile cuff f its over or un­der jacket sleeves, and f inger loops keep snow out when the gloves are hang­ing off your har­ness. Warm, wa­ter­proof and dex­trous: what else do you need in a glove?
