How to effectively protect your hands from the cold
in the same way you wear several layers of clothing when trekking, you can wear liner gloves under your gloves, that will act as a thermal base layer. This multi-layer system enables several layers of air to form around your hands, efficiently insulating them from the cold! Remember to wear gloves that are big enough so that your fingers don't get compressed. Compression reduces blood circulation in the fingers.
A suitable outfit
When physically active, the body produces heat. This is preserved thanks to the thermal insulation of the outfit. If your clothing is unsuitable, the body will get colder and blood flow to the hands will drop in order to retain heat in the central core. Gloves and clothing must be suitable to keep hands at a comfortable temperature.
How is the usage temperature measured?
Our gloves are laboratory-tested using a thermal hand to measure their level of warmth. The temperature ratings (normal and limit) come from a study carried out with a test panel of 23 walkers exposed to temperatures ranging from 5°C to -20°C and 10 km/h winds. These temperatures are only valid when walking. The Trek 500 gloves have a warmth rating of 1 out of 5.
Dexterity of gloves
The dexterity of a glove is its ability to manipulate objects. Our Trek 500 gloves were rated in a laboratory. The closer the dexterity rating of the glove is to 5, the more you can handle things with the gloves as if they were off. For example, we tested the capacity of the Trek 500 gloves to easily get your jacket on and open it, handle bivouacking objects, drink and eat. The Trek 500 gloves have a dexterity rating of 4 out of 5.
Ease of use
For quick and efficient dressing, pull the wrist strap with the opposite hand.
Has the rain got inside your gloves?
In this case, dry them in a dry place but avoid placing them on a heat source. This could damage the fibre and they could lose their shape!
Store in a clean and dry place.
Our design team is based at the foot of the Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are beautiful, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to test the products under the real-life conditions that you will experience.
