How to protect your hands from the cold in the best way possible?
In the same way you wear several layers of clothing when trekking, you can wear liner gloves under your gloves, that will act as a thermal base layer. This multi-layer system lets several layers of air to form around your hands, efficiently insulating them from the cold!
Remember to wear large enough gloves to avoid your fingers being constricted. Compression reduces blood circulation in the fingers.
When active, the body creates heat which is maintained thanks to the garment's thermal insulation. If your clothing is unsuitable, the body will get colder and blood flow to the hands will drop in order to retain heat in the central core. Gloves and clothing must be adapted to keep hands at a comfortable temperature.
How is usage temperature measured?
All our gloves are laboratory-tested using a thermal hand to determine their warmth level. The minimum temperatures for use (recommended and limit) are the result of a study carried out with a test panel of 23 walkers exposed to temperatures ranging from 5°C to -20°C and 10 km/h winds. These temperatures are only valid in walking conditions.
The Trek 500 gloves are given a warmth rating of 1 out of 5.
The dexterity of a glove is its ability to handle objects. Our Trek 500 gloves have been scored in a laboratory. The closer the glove's dexterity is to 5, the more the glove can handle objects in the same way as the bare hand. For example, we have tested the ability to put on and open a jacket, to handle objects in bivouac, to eat and drink wearing the Trek 500 gloves.
The Trek 500 gloves are given a warmth rating of 4 out of 5.
Easy to put on
Pull the wrist strap with the opposite hand to put them on quickly and efficiently.
Got your liner gloves caught in the rain?
If this happens then dry them in a dry place but avoid placing them on a heat source. This could damage the fibre and they could lose their shape!
