The solution was Polartec Alpha®. Originally developed for the U.S. military, Alpha was specifically designed for thermoregulation during the extreme temperature variations and start-stop conditions of combat. These are times when shedding layers isn’t really an option. During low activity, Alpha provides excellent insulation. During high activity, the insulation moves moisture vapor away from the body before it can cause overheating and discomfort. In other words: It’s the perfect insulation for the highs and lows of backcountry skiing.
To make Jérémie’s ideal glove, Reusch wrapped this Alpha insulation with weatherized goatskin for robust weather protection and grip. In lower-wear areas, a stretchy soft shell layer provides ultimate freedom of movement. The Heat Capture System™ cuffs hold in warmth while keeping out the elements. And the ergonomic design allows for the most natural feel and hand movement. The resulting gloves are snug-fitting, tough, super supple, warm and breathable.
