Mitts might seem like a less important clothing item until you find yourself skiing at the top of a mountain with freezing, wet hands. That’s when you realise you should have planned better, but by then, it’s usually too late. The good news is, you’re reading this. That means you belong in the other group of adventurers: Adventurers who plan ahead. So, what’s the plan for this winter? Are you going to be conquering slopes, pulling the kids’ sleds or shovelling snow? Whatever fun adventure lies ahead, we’ve got you, or at least your hands, covered.
The technologies we use for men’s winter gloves
Some people might think that gloves are easy to make. Take some material you have at hand, add filling for insulation, and voilà. Yeah, that’s not how it works. At Columbia, we have a team of experts dedicated to working with the design of perfect sports gear, including winter gloves. Let us tell you a bit more about the technologies we use when we make the perfect gloves for you.
Waterproof gloves:Among the waterproofing technologies we have developed, we’ve discovered that, for making waterproof winter gloves, the best one is Omni-Tech™ Waterproof. It’s windproof, repels water, and best of all, helps your body get rid of the excess moisture from the inside, AKA sweat. With these gloves, you won’t have to worry about sweaty, slippery hands or getting them wet from the snow or rain.
Thermal-reflective gloves: We’re also very proud of ourOmni-Heat™ Reflective technology. It has multiple benefits, like being lightweight. This means that you don’t need to layer up in order to stay warm. Who wants to wear three jackets, anyway? We use special silver dots that use your own body heat to keep you warm instead of letting the heat escaping from your clothes. And finally, this technology enables breathability and moisture-wicking so you’re never drenched in sweat.
How to choose your ideal pair of winter gloves for men
What do you need Columbia gloves for? Is it for mountain sports, for simple warmth, as accessories, for working in the cold, or are you in need of waterproof material? Narrow down your choices according to your needs and preferences. You can use the filters to choose size, colours, price, and other features you’re looking for. One of the filter options is the materials. Among Columbia gloves, you’ll find:
Waterproof material gloves
Sweater weather gloves
Knit and sweater weather gloves are ideal if you need some quick warmth on your walk or while you’re running errands. Ski gloves that have ridges for enhanced grip ability are just perfect for the mountain, as are our waterproof mittens and gloves. However you’re spending the cold season, you will weather this winter just fine with a pair of men’s gloves from our collection.
Why should you choose Columbia winter gloves for men?
Apart from the technologies behind our men’s winter gloves and mittens, there are many other reasons to choose Columbia. Our undeniable quality is just one more reason. Our gloves are soft but sturdy accessories with an insulation design ideal for keeping you warm. Our brand loves versatility, so we offer winter gloves for men, unisex gloves, and pairs to hold a small hand too, like your child’s.
With our gloves as accessories or part of your winter gear, you’ll know that you’ll be safe, dry and warm, no matter the situation you might find yourself in. A durable pair of, for example, leather gloves, a fleece liner jacket, and a warm hat, will make your holiday or any other winter activity on the road much more enjoyable.
In addition to all of this, allow us to mention one more thing. We know we live in the era of smartphones and touchscreen use. And you will have to agree, wearing gloves makes using a smartphone much trickier. So, what happens if your spouse, kid or boss calls? Maybe it’s an emergency. You try to remove your gloves, drop your phone, miss the call and the phone probably ends up soaked in water. Not anymore. Columbia unisex and men’s gloves come with a special design that allows your finger to touch the screen of your phone. We have solved the touchscreen problem solved. Touchdown!
