Warm and built to wick, the Swix Shield Glove is a cross country ski glove with Swix's highest rating as a System IV, or Thermal Weight, glove for cross country skiing or other aerobic and high activity winter sports. This glove is soft, flexible, and warm, to keep you out on the trail when the mercury is dropping. This is fully insulated, fingers, palms, and back of hand, with PrimaLoft insulation which has been further refined to add loft without adding bulk. The palms are Amara, a material similar to Kevlar, with all the wear of Kevla, making it less likely you'll lose control of a pole. But should your skiing buddy lose their pole? Digitalized finger tips make it a snap to digitally document the whole thing. Additional reinforcement on the palms in strategic wear areas for long lasting use, neoprene cuffs for a precise fit, and terry nose wipes on the thumbs, so you're not fumbling in your pockets when you need a quick swipe. A great Swix cross country ski glove for the skier not intimidated by winter who wants to get out there and enjoy the kick and glide of it even in the cold. Lighter than an alpine glove, designed by Nordic skiers for Nordic skiers, this is a great cold weather glove for the active person engaging in an aerobic sport.
