From the Heat Company, an Austrian based company which specializes in manufacturing warming products, come the Heat 3 Smart gloves. Apart from keeping your hands extremely warm, these gloves come with a number of other perks.
Unlike many other modern gloves which are designed for extreme weather, the Heat 3 Smart gloves are not equipped with battery powered heating systems. In order to give you the necessary protection against the cold, these gloves rely on superior craftsmanship and the incorporation of high quality materials. The outer shell of the gloves is made from elastic microfiber which makes them waterproof, windproof and breathable. The palm of the gloves is covered in goat leather for increased grip and durability, while the insulation used in these gloves is Primaloft which will make sure that your hands are kept warm.
The index finger and thumb of these gloves are conductive which makes them perfect for operating touch screen equipment while in the bitter cold. In order to further ensure that your hands are kept warm, these gloves are combined with a mitten design; just cover your finger with the mitten and close the zipper on the palm of the gloves. Even the thumb gets extra protection thanks to the velcro thumb cap.
If the mitten gets in the way of handling equipment, unzip it and clip to the magnetic clip found at the back of your hand. These gloves are also equipped with pockets on the back side intended for heat packs for extra warmth or whatever items you find necessary to have. To prevent you from losing this expensive piece of winter gear, the Heat 3 Smart gloves are equipped with a safety harness. If you are not persuaded that these gloves are worth the buy, take into consideration the fact that the gloves from these series were custom-made for German and Austrian Special Forces, so when any military grade product hits the commercial market you can be sure that it is a high quality and trustworthy product.
Available in five colors (beige, brown, grey, green and black) and various sizes (from S to XXL), grab a pair of these excellent gloves which are perfect for all outdoor activities, but will be most appreciated by photographers who know all to well the trouble of having to take photos during the bitter cold.
