With the winter outdoor season halfway over, companies are well on their way to sharing details about their gear lineup for next year. Details about the Gordini 2016-17 glove lineup, for instance, have begun circulating, and it appears the company has doubled-down on warmth.
Next winter’s line features serious insulation for both men and women. This is great news for people with Raynaud’s syndrome, who struggle to keep their hands and feet warm even at temperatures that many people wouldn’t consider debilitating. And, since Raynaud’s is traditionally a female affliction, it’s nice to see Gordini giving insulation love to both genders.
The Gordini 2016-17 glove lineup is five options deep and spans both gloves and mittens. The line also uses both Primaloft and 3M Thinsulate, so fans of either insulation material will have a new glove option at their fingertips.
Highlighting the Gordini 2016-17 glove lineup is the company’s first Active Comfort Collection, which has all the technical bells and whistles such as touchscreen capability while also using Primaloft insulation for incredible warmth. The fabrics in this collection include one-sided antipill fleece, goatskin and sheepskin leather accents. The gloves will also include an Aquabloc insert that Gordini says is “ultra breathable, waterproof and windproof.”
The Gordini DT Gauntlet Glove (and Mitt) will be the showpiece in Gordini’s Empyrean Collection for the 2016-17 season. Available in men’s and women’s styles, the DT Gauntlet gloves will include DownTek water-repellent down, have DownTek 700 fill power for warmth, and have a woven nylon shell with genuine sheepskin in multiple places for protection and reinforcement. This shell will be waterproof, breathable and windproof. The gloves will retail for $110.
Next in the Gordini 2016-17 glove lineup are the DT Leather Glove and DT Leather Mitt, both of which are also part of the Empyrean Collection. These options have a full sheepskin leather outer shell, use DownTek water-repellent down, have DownTek 700 fill power and use a similar woven nylon shell with sheepskin in certain locations. Available for both men and women, the DT Leather Glove will retail for $150.
Rounding things out is the Women’s Siren Cuff, which uses Gordini’s proprietary 3M Thinsulate insulation. This glove will have a smooth stretch nylon shell with goatskin offer a soft faux-fur lining on the inside. This glove, like the others mentioned above, will be available starting in September 2016. It will carry an MSRP of $45.
