Thermadry Polypro Merino Possum Fingerless Gloves are an SLH staff favourite – we wear them when we’re kayaking and we also wear them when we’re working (our showroom gets cold in winter!)
Merino Wool is combined with Possum Fur to retain warmth next to the skin (Possum fur is a hollow core fibre which doesn’t freeze in sub zero temperatures). Polyproplylene adds ‘wickability’ to draw the moisture to the exterior of the glove, as well as providing a hard wearing outer surface. Elastane to give the glove stretch and a firm fit to the hand. Woven together these materials conspire to provide a glove suitable for tougher outdoor environments and activities while retaining dexterity.
Note: Some of our customers use Gill Xpel Tec Fishing Gloves as an outer shell to slide over the Possum wool gloves to add extra wind and moisture protection. This is highly effective for kayak fishing in extreme winter conditions
