Ski Gear: Gordini Cache Gauntlet Mitt

Derrick Knowles

Based in Vermont and independently owned, Gordini has been an innovator in glove design for over 60 years. New this season is the company’s Clutch™ Synthetic Leather, a waterproof/breathable, animal-free alternative that outperforms traditional leather and suede.

Clutch is also a highly durable material shown to be four-to-six times more abrasion-resistant than leather and highly-breathable to boot.

Gordini sells gloves and mitts made of Clutch, but I chose the Gauntlet Mitt with Primaloft insulation that comes with fingermitt construction to maximize warmth on colder days in the backcountry when my fingers tend to go numb too easily. I got to give them a whirl on a very-early season fall ski tour in unseasonably frigid temps and was stoked to still feel my fingers at the summit.

MSRP: $80.99.
