You protect your body with a GORE-TEX hardshell when skiing so why not your hands? Arc'teryx has introduced a new short cuff version of their award winning Alpha SV gauntlet glove, the Vertical SV, designed with the same Tri-Dex Technology for unprecedented dexterity.
With Tri-Dex Technology, each finger in the Vertical SV glove is individually patterned to replicate your fingers unique shape and direction of articulation. The glove, therefore, feels like a natural extension of your hand and moves easily without bulky resistance.
The fingers of both the outer shell and inner liner are constructed in a unique Y-shaped pattern with seamless finger tips for better gripping of poles or opening of backpack buckles. You can easily remove your Vertical SV gloves without the liner separating from the outer shell.
The outer glove is made from GORE-TEX Pro Shell 3L fabric with a Lezanova leather palm and fingertips for enhanced durability and grip. The Polartec Wind Pro High Loft liner can easily be removed for drying. The velcro closure, laminated cuffs open wide for easy on and off.
The Arc'teryx Vertical SV gloves will retail for around $270 and will be available for Fall 2011.
