180s Quantum Vent Gloves
image/180s

In a world of knuckle draggers, there is still room for two plankers on the slopes. There is always room for the 2009 FIS World Freestyle Skiing Championships winner, Patrick Deneen. Deneen, the top ranked U.S. mogul skier, has been skiing since he was 11 months old and has not stopped.

His recent top finishes make him a favorite to make the U.S. Ski Team for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Deneen is sponsored by 180s and helped design their Quantum Vent Gloves.

The 180s Quantum Vent Gloves are designed for varying temperatures on the mountain. The venting system on the glove makes it warm enough for bitter cold winter days or the warmer spring ski season.

The venting system is easy to operate and can be opened without removing either glove. Pull on the flap located on the backhand side of each glove to cool down your toasty hands. 

The outer shell on Quantum Vent Gloves are constructed of polyester with a smidge of spandex. The palm is a poly-blend. The glove is insulated with Primaloft and the lining is a smooth tricot fabric. This all leads to the water resistance of the Quantum Vent along with a soft fit.

iPods, iPhones and other portable devices were considered by 180s with the design. Each forefinger has a Tec Touch 2.0 fabric pod.

This makes it easier to press the tiny keys of an MP3 player, mobile phone, or other handheld devices. It is not easy at first to use the finger pods and takes some practice to get used to them. The best use for the finger pods is when you are on the lift and want to operate your phone or MP3 player. You don’t want to risk dropping a glove on the slopes below.

180_logoThe 180s Quantum Vent Gloves are designed for varying temperature ranges and are technology friendly. The gloves have an MSRP of $75 and come in the color black. They are available in standard sizes from S to XL.
