All Wedze gloves and mittens have a water-repellent treatment that means their fabric does not absorb water, but instead ensures it slides across the surface. As a result, the fabric does not become saturated with water. It remains light and warm. A fabric becomes water-repellent thanks to a treatment applied to its outer surface. To remain effective, this treatment must be renewed every 2 to 3 washes with specific products that are available in our stores.
This ski glove has a water-resistant membrane that consists of a very thin polymer film, placed between the lining and the part of the glove in contact with the outside. This membrane acts as a barrier to water and makes the product waterproof. In addition, the outer materials of the product benefit from a water-repellent treatment that reduces water absorption. Only a rubber-type glove is watertight. A glove with a membrane, under extremely damp conditions, will have limited waterproofness.
All Wedze gloves and mittens are windproof. Did you know that the wind makes you feel colder? At an outside temperature of 0°C and a wind speed of 20 km/h, the temperature will feel like -10°C. Windproof fabrics limit windchill and cold caused by the speed of the sport.
A special cuff has been built inside the 500 gloves. This soft and comfortable cuff keeps out draughts and snow from getting into the glove when it’s windy or in case of a fall. Extra warmth.
Simply pull the wrist-strap with the opposite hand for speedy and effective adjustment.
An elastic drawstring that goes around the wrist can be used to take off the gloves on ski lifts without losing them.
WHAT IS THE DEXTERITY OF A GLOVE/MITTEN?
It reflects how easily you can handle objects while wearing the glove. All our gloves are given a dexterity score on a scale of 1 to 5 as part of a field test. Gloves with a dexterity score of 5 allow you to handle objects just as you would with bare hands.
To give our gloves a dexterity score, we tested how well we could remove and put on ski goggles, adjust the hooks on a ski boot and open and close a jacket.
