The perfect weapon for fighting cold spring slush or hot hands on the skin track. Not only do your fingers get numb, but taking gloves on and off is just a pain, especially if you prefer under-the-cuff gloves. Hand Out’s new zipper at the back of the Pro Ski Glove’s hand solves all those problems.
Hand Out Lightweight Gloves keep your hands comfy and your fingers just a quick zip away. Simply unzip and stick your hand out of the shell so you can skin without sweaty hands. The zipper is ruggedly protective against the elements, as is the entire leather shell with its waterproof, breathable Hipora insert.
Made from breathable neoprene and our durable waterproof zipper, these gloves are a go-to for sunny days inbounds and out.
