Alpine gloves

Alpine gloves

When choosing gloves suitable for alpine trekking, mountaineering and ski touring, it is important to emphasize three factors: water resistance, thermal insulation and a palm that provides a good grip on pikes, poles and other items of equipment. In the CampingRocks store you can see models from the brands Outdoor Research, Picture Organic and Scott. The high-mountain models are equipped with dense synthetic insulations such as PrimaLoft and Thermal STD, which perform well even in wet conditions. The inner layer that touches the skin is made of a fine fleece material that creates a pleasant touch and efficiently wicks away moisture. The high-class mountaineering gloves have an external hardshell material (so-called membrane) that does not allow water to pass from the outside, while at the same time removing water vapor and preventing steaming. Each brand uses its preferred type of membrane such as GoreTex, DryPlay and others. Although Gore-Tex has established itself over the years as a byword for waterproofing, its subspecies GoreTex Infinium is designed to protect against wind only, so it's usually used in milder and warmer weather gloves as it doesn't offer rain protection . The warmest models offer a combination of 2 gloves: an inner made of fleece or lightweight synthetic insulation and an outer hardshell glove.
