Watch your hands – gloves with GORE-TEX® product technology have a firm grip on the cold
The first snow has arrived, so what are you waiting for! To enjoy winter as long as possible, outdoor sports enthusiasts place their trust in gloves with GORE-TEX® product technology that will keep your hands warm and agile. To help you make the right decisions when you buy your gloves, the GORE-TEX® brand has some tips for you.
For winter athletes choosing the right gloves is very important. After all, at low temperatures the blood flow to our hands slows down and they become cold and stiff. Gloves equipped with GORE-TEX® product technology can help: by being both waterproof and windproof they offer enduring weather protection and optimum moisture management. Perspiration can easily escape through the microporous, highly breathable membrane so that the insulation remains dry and hands stay warm.
Consider the following for a successful purchase!
1. Activities and preferencies: Warmth, a secure grip or maximum breathability – before buying a new pair of gloves, mountain sports enthusiast need to think carefully about exactly for which sports they want to use them for and whether they have any personal preferences.
2. A good fit: If you choose gloves that are too big or too small, you will lose heat and your hands will get cold. Specialist sport shops will measure your hands for you.
3. Find a retailer you trust: If you want to buy a new pair of gloves it’s worth seeking professional advice from a well-stocked specialist sports shop. Whether you choose to go into a high street store or prefer to shop online – only the professionals can find the right style and fit for you, while also giving you some useful tips on uses and care. Remember: you’re less likely to make a mistake if you have been able to try the gloves on in a store!
4. When to buy: Trendy outdoor athletes go to the shops early on in the season so they can choose between all the colours, shapes and styles GORE-TEX® brandpartners like Reusch, Salomon or Ziener offer. Bargain hunters can wait until the end of the season and hope that their favourite pair of gloves has been reduced – but don’t wait too long!
