Introducing the SealSkinz Ultra Grip Gauntlet Gloves
The SealSkinz Ultra Grip gloves are a lightweight, highly durable unisex glove that has done well to keep customers coming back for a second or third pair. The exterior layer of combination nylon and spandex fibers, a warm Merino wool softly lining the inside, and the middle layer of waterproof hydrophilic membrane all work together to protect hands from wind, rain, and cold temperatures. These are considered by customers to be an extremely hard working pair of gloves for a range of outdoor activities. They can last up to a year of use in most cases with proper care and include Stretch-dry technology with grip prints along the palm giving excellent control and dexterity to covered fingers.

There are some concepts to consider when choosing the right size for any glove. If you buy the wrong size and repeatedly taking them off for relief you risk exposing your skin to cold temperatures and that isn't doing your body heat any favors. When first putting on the glove look at the fingertips, there should be some room between the end of the glove. This space creates a small pocket of air that traps warmth. Notice how the glove fits at the base of your fingers around the webbing. If the glove is stuck against your finger base it compresses the insulation and makes it difficult for the glove to trap the air. If this is the case you will notice your hands becoming chilly after some time. The further the glove extends down your wrist, the fewer chances to expose skin between glove and jacket sleeve.
A disadvantage of an outer shell made of fabric, even rugged nylon is its susceptibility to tearing if snagged on sharp objects such as branches or rocks. These tears can jeopardize the waterproof membrane of the glove letting water and moisture permeate the skin. Taking precautionary measures to be aware of your surroundings and avoiding obstacles will alleviate this issue and extend the glove’s lifespan.
Now, even the most expensive waterproof gloves claiming 100% waterproof properties can get wet, and it’s usually from the inside out. An active lifestyle of climbing, hiking, snowshoeing results in spiked body heat and sweating. Some online users note water in their gloves after high-intensity activity that was likely the result of sweat production trapped by the wool. If your hands are dry, they’ll be more likely to stay warm.
Specifically created for increased dexterity in wet conditions, such as snowshoeing or sailing into misty morning waves. The tough nylon shell not only makes them weatherproof but also strong enough to handle any type of activity you like to do. An Aqua Dynamic design that features durable, stretchable and breathable material finished with excellent waterproofing, make ideal cool and cold weather gloves.
