Component water repellency
Wedze gloves and mittens are treated for water repellency to ensure that water is not absorbed, but rolls off the surface. This means the fabric does not become saturated with water. It remains light and warm. Water repellency is achieved by treating the fabric’s exterior. To remain effective, restore the treatment every 2 to 3 washes using specific products available in our stores.
These ski gloves have a waterproof membrane: a very thin polymer film, placed between the lining and the exterior part of the glove. This membrane acts as a barrier to make the product waterproof. The product’s exterior materials are also treated for water repellency. Only a rubber-type glove is watertight. Under extremely humid conditions, a glove with a membrane will have limited waterproofness.
All Wedze gloves and mittens are windproof. Did you know that the wind can make you feel colder? An outside temperature of 0°C and a wind speed of 20 km/h feels like -10°C. Windproof fabrics limit wind chill and cold caused by the speed of the sport.
An elastic drawstring that goes around the wrist can be used to remove the gloves on ski lifts without losing them.
What is the dexterity of a glove/mitten?
It’s the glove’s ability to handle objects. Our gloves were field-tested for dexterity and rated on a scale of 1 to 5. A dexterity rating of 5 means that it is as easy to handle objects as with a bare hand.
To evaluate the level of dexterity of our gloves, we tested putting on and removing masks, adjusting ski boot hooks, and fastening or unfastening a jacket.
