Incredible gloves provide the ultimate in dexterity and warmth

Given the snowpocalypse going on around us in NYC, killer gloves have become the essential accessory and the Alpha SV from Arc'Teryx is just the item. I've been testing them for a couple weeks now and am thoroughly impressed.

The Gore-Tex gloves embody all of the vital attributes for facing extreme winter conditions, further enhanced by Arc'Teryx's new patent-pending Tri-Dex technology. This advanced construction involves a three-lobed finger pattern (see below) and authentic anatomical fit, providing the utmost comfort and dexterity by moving seams away from critical flex and touch points. The wind- and water-resistant shell comes with a removable fleece liner made in the same Tri-Dex form.

Breathable but completely insulating, the Alpha SV Gloves maximize warmth without causing interior moisture which is critical in the backcountry (where they're really meant to be used).

Available next year, the gloves will also be made in mitt form.
