The North Face Saiku Glove
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Grab your skis and get ready to explore backcountry terrain with the waterproof, insulated Saiku gloves from The North Face. They offer great dexterity for holding ski poles and handling zippers. Hyvent waterproof, breathable technology utilizes a polyurethane coating for waterproof protection, moisture permeability and durability. PrimaLoft(R) One is a patented ultrafine microfiber blend that offers downlike softness, and is incredibly lightweight and water repellent. 100g insulation on the palms and 150g on the backs of the hands keeps your fingers warm when you're skiing down cold, snowy slopes. Palms are lined with polyester with a FlashDry(TM) fabric additive that dramatically improves drying time and breathability without adding weight or bulk or washing out. 5 Dimensional Fit(TM) uses 5 measurements of the hand to construct gloves with an accurate and consistent fit. Radiametric Articulation(TM) improves warmth and blood flow to your fingers by mirroring the natural relaxed curve of the hand. The North Face Saiku gloves have water-resistant cowhide leather exteriors that stand up to regular use and provide great grip. Low-profile cuffs fit underneath your jacket; stretchy cuffs seal out cold air.
Hiking up powder-capped peaks is a hefty challenge, but dropping down them makes the task totally worth it. Just take a breather on top, slide on The North Face Saiku Gloves, point your skis down, and lean forward. A HyVent insert prevents that flying powder from damping your hands, and 100g Heatseeker insulation gives your palms the dexterity they need while 150g warms the back of your hands in frigid temperatures. The FlashDry lining wicks moisture off your sweaty palms when the route gets intense. And The North Face covered the shell with water-resistant cowhide leather that's sure to last through multiple seasons. The North Face built the Saiku from the inside out to ensure a consistent size across your hand, and Radiametric Articulation sets the Saiku at your hand's natural position for all-day comfort on those snowy slopes. Fourchette-box finger construction keeps your digits nice and toasty. And the pull-on stretch cuff has a low profile to slide under your jacket's sleeve, thereby retaining all that insulation's wonderful warmth.
Our high-performance, short-gauntlet ski glove is crafted with Heatseeker insulation and a waterproof HyVent insert to keep you warmer in backcountry environments and built with a hand-crafted approach to last a lifetime.
