Keeping your hands warm while maintaining maximum dexterity in your fingers is the ultimate challenge for glove designers. For many years, the idea of an inner liner encased in a breathable, waterproof shell has been the answer. This system allows the user to shed the awkward outer liner when taking pictures, tying laces, or eating lunch. However, shedding the outer layer often exposes the inner layer to the cold and moisture, rendering the outer layer useless.

Cloudveil’s Cody Bowl Glove eschews the two-layer system in favor of a soft, comfortable lining attached to a durable, weather-resistant outer layer. A Cloudburst Stretch EV3 fabric and Schoeller WB-400 stretch panel allow for maximum dexterity, while 300-weight fleece and 200-gram Primaloft combine for a warm comfortable lining. New Supergrip synthetic palm material allows for easy gripping of ski pole handles. Though warm, the Cody Bowl Glove is by no means bulky and awkward. While backcountry skiing in the northern Bridgers, we hiked against a fierce wind and temperatures were in the upper twenties. The glove encased my hand, yet my fingers were still nimble. My hands remained warm, without a clammy, sweaty feeling. However, my fingers did get a little cold while carrying my skis—as usual, lack of circulation and gripping cold objects were the glove’s undoing. I used zippers, opened protein bar wrappers, and took pictures, and there were only a few times when I needed to take the glove off. All in all the Cody Bowl Glove
