Swooshing down the slopes is invigorating, thrilling, and for beginner-level two-plankers it can be terrifying. You will overcome your anxiety and the fear. Cold hands should never be an issue to overcome regardless of your powder-plowing prowess. Frozen digits will put any ski trip in a deep freeze. You will inevitably end up in the resort’s ski shop buying a pair of gloves that inevitably cost more than they should.
The Seirus Xtreme All Weather line is much sleeker than traditional ski gloves. Seirus touts the Xtreme All Weather glove line as being as warm as a 200g insulated glove.
The gloves in the Xtreme line have an outer shell that is wind and water proof, a liner that is also wind and waterproof, and a fleece-lined inner liner. This construction produces a glove that is wind and waterproof according to Seirus. The design is also advertised by Seirus as being breathable.
Through extended use, the gloves did provide exceptional warmth even in temperatures in the teens (Fahrenheit). The Xtremes lived up to their advanced billing for breathability and wicks away perspiration quickly. The gloves fit comfortably and give your hands added dexterity due to the Xtreme’s sleeker design. The form-fitting design of the Xtremes makes your Blackberry, iPod, and other handheld devices more bearable to use without taking off your gloves.
The gloves most noticeable strengths, its form fitting design, also can be its only weakness. The form fitting ability gives it a snug fit and does not give added room for a glove liner.
The Seirus Xtreme All Weather Glove line is an exceptional alternative to traditional ski gloves. Seirus offers the Xtremes in three models – Original, Edge, and Hex. The Edge has a leather outer shell and the Hex provides a slightly more colorful design. The Xtreme All Weather gloves has a suggested retail price of $49.95.
