For extreme warmth and versatility, you just can’t beat the dual-layer ski glove. Having two gloves in one means you’re prepared for a variety of temperatures and moisture conditions. Seirus takes this approach to the next level with their new Softshell Glove System. A fleece-lined waterproof/breathable liner and a Polartec windproof/breathable shell—each a solid glove on its own—combine to make one technically advanced system. The softshell outer glove has four-way stretch capabilities for dexterity, while the form-fitting polyester liner wicks away moisture effectively. On warmer days, dual side vents on the back of the shell help keep your hands at a comfortable temperature; when it’s cold, you’ve got a handy pocket for lunch money or a no-fog cloth. 100 grams of Thinsulate adds plenty of insulation without excessive bulk. An articulated, reinforced RubberTec palm gives extra protection and a solid grip on your ski pole. I found the liner to be great alone for spring skiing conditions or pre- and post-ski activities, while the outer shell is a great glove on windy but otherwise warm days. Worn together, they’re about as warm a glove as you’ll find anywhere. The thing I liked most about the Softshell System is that you can really crank the shell down snug in cold or powdery conditions. Both the drawstring forearm cuff and the Velcro wrist cuff have an easy, one-handed cinch mechanism—no need to struggle on the lift or ask your buddy for help.
