Recommended usage conditions -4°C to 0°C. Fleece component 290 g/sqm.
Palm and finger reinforcements for improved gripping. NON-TACTILE
This is the ability to handle objects when wearing these gloves
Polyester knit allows water vapour to escape.
Collar-lined fleece reducing the effects of the wind.
Ease of use
Glove is easy to put on with the ties on the cuff.
Owing to the fleece material, the gloves dry quickly outdoors
When active, the body creates heat which is maintained thanks to the item's thermal insulation. Where inadequate, the body cools and reduces blood circulation in the hands to retain the heat at the core. Gloves and clothing must be adapted to keep hands at a comfortable temperature.
If you're unsure about the size, it's always better to opt for a pair of hiking gloves that are slightly too big than too small.
Recommended temperature = 1°C
Corresponds to the ambient temperature at which 100% of testers felt comfortable.
This is 1°C for Forclaz 100 gloves.
Limit temperature = -4°C
Corresponds to the ambient temperature at which 90% of testers felt comfortable.
This is -4°C for Forclaz 100 gloves.
How is usage temperature measured?
All our gloves are laboratory-tested using a thermal hand to determine their level of insulation and minimum temperature rating. The minimum temperatures for use (recommended and limit) are the result of 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 in walking conditions.
Dexterity of gloves
The dexterity of a glove is its ability to handle objects. Our gloves have been scored in the laboratory on a scale of 1 to 5. The closer the glove's dexterity is to 5, the more the glove can handle objects in the same way as the bare hand. In particular, we tested how easy it is to get a jacket on and open it.
