protecting your hands from the cold while hiking.
Store in a clean and dry place.
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.

How is the use temperature measured?
All our gloves are laboratory tested on a thermal hand. The usage T° are valid when walking and wearing clothes suitable for the activity. The body produces heat during exercise, which is preserved thanks to the thermal insulation of the outfit. If the clothes are not specially adapted, the body cools down, the blood flow through the hands decreases in order to retain the warmth in the central core.The recommended and limit T° are based on 23 testers for T° from 5°C to -20°C and wind of 10 km/h.
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.
