Recommended temperature rating from -4°C to 0°C. 290 g/sqm fleece component.
Palm and finger reinforcements for better grip. NOT TOUCHSCREEN COMPATIBLE
Ability of the glove to manipulate objects
Polyester mesh which allows water vapour to escape.
Laminated fleece to limit the effects of the wind.
Ease of use
Easy to put your gloves on with the attachments located on the cuff.
Thanks to their fleece material, these gloves dry quickly in the open air
The body produces heat during exercise, which is preserved thanks to the thermal insulation of the outfit. If the clothing is unfit for this purpose, the body will cool down and the blood flow to the hands will drop in order to keep the central core warm. The gloves and clothing should therefore be suited to the physical activity in order to keep your hands comfortable.
If you're not sure, it's always better to select a pair of hiking gloves that are slightly too big rather than too small.
Recommended temperature rating = 1°C
The ambient temperature at which all the testers claimed that they felt comfortable.
This is 1°C for Forclaz 100 gloves.
Limit temperature rating = -4°C
Corresponds to the ambient temperature that 90% of testers considered acceptable.
This is -4°C for the Forclaz 100 gloves.
How is the temperature rating measured?
All our gloves are laboratory tested using a thermal hand to determine the level of warmth as well as the minimum temperature ratings.
The temperature ratings (normal and limit) are based on a study carried out on a panel of 23 testers in walking situations exposed to temperatures ranging from 5°C to -20°C and a 10 km/h wind. These temperatures are only valid in walking situations.
Dexterity of the glove
The dexterity of a glove is its ability to manipulate objects. Our gloves have been scored in the laboratory on a scale of 1 to 5. The closer the glove's dexterity rating gets to 5, the more the glove can handle objects like a bare hand. In particular, we tested how easy it is to get a jacket on and open it with the gloves.
