The Extremities Vortex Gloves are a classic styled, versatile waterproof GORE-TEX glove which is suitable for the daily commute to hikes on the hills.
The Vortex Gloves are a versatile, classic design; smart enough for everyday use and about town, and thanks to the durably windproof, waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX liner a great addition to hiking kit - keeping you protected from the elements. Touchscreen technology is added to the forefinger and thumb making it easy to keep in touch and use devices when you're out and about. The gloves have a PU palm and fingers for durability and a better grip and an elasticated wrist on the back to help keep the drafts out. A good all-round waterproof GORE-TEX glove for the Autumn/Winter which isn't too bulky.
Extremities Vortex Gore-Tex Gloves provide you with a great level of protection for winter conditions. With a quality lining from Gore-Tex you can trust the wind- and waterproof protection. The durable material on the palm and fingers give a good level of grip and it is also touch screen compatible. The fleece inner is comfortable and they provide a decent amount of insulation to keep you warm.
The design of these gloves is pretty simple but still effective for keeping out the elements so they do exactly what they need to. I would prefer a bit more protection at the wrist as either more elastication or a draw cord for example.
