Our design team is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are appealing, simple, and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
protecting your hands from the cold during lowland hikes.
Machine wash at 30°C; do not tumble dry.
Store in a clean and dry place
Use of Velcro may cause pilling of the gloves.
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 adapted for use to keep hands comfortable. If you're not sure, it's always best to select a pair of hiking gloves that are slightly too big rather than too small.
Recommended temperature = 10°C
Corresponds to the ambient temperature that all the testers considered acceptable. This is 10°C for the Arpenaz 50 tactile gloves.
Limit temperature = 4°C
Corresponds to the ambient temperature that 90% of testers considered acceptable. This is 4°C for the Arpenaz 50 tactile gloves.
How is the use temperature measured?
All our gloves are laboratory tested using a thermal hand to determine the level of warmth as well as the minimum usage temperatures. The minimum use temperatures (recommended and limits) 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 wind of 10 km/h. 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 nearer the glove's dexterity rating gets to 5, the closer the manipulation when wearing the glove gets to that of a bare hand. In particular, we tested the ability to easily put on and open your jacket.
Limit temperature = 3°C
Corresponds to the ambient temperature that 90% of testers considered acceptable. This is 3°C for Arpenaz 50 tactile gloves.
