These ski gloves are fairly plain to look at in comparison to some of the wackier gloves on the market (POC Nail Colour!) but they have a certain purposeful look about them.
And purposeful they are with Helly Hansens Primaloft synthetic insulation inside they performed well on top of the Matterhorn Glacier in biting winds.
The Durable Water Repellency treatment (DWR) and the sealed seams help keep your hands dry in all but the very worst of conditions, we're certainly yet to feel any moisture creeping in.
The gauntlet style of the glove and the adjustable gaiter lend themselves well to off-piste skiing enabling you to wrap them up tight around your cuff guarding against the ingress of the light fluffy stuff.
The goat leather reinforced palms and fingers are a nice touch that should prolong the life of the gloves in those vulnerable areas. If you're the sort who is attached to your smartphone you'll also appreciate the little nibblets on the end of the index finger and thumb for prodding away at your phone with your gloves still firmly attached to your hands.
Overall a good, well-built glove for cold conditions that should last a season or more.
