Swix is one of the world's premier manufacturers of ski wear and accessories and waxes for NORDIC skiing. This glove is built to keep your hands warm when engaged in physical activity in the coldest temperatures, and the cinch gauntlet will keep blowing snow out. The zip vent is a great concept since virtually all such style gloves prove to be too warm during continuous exercise and the worst thing about such gloves is getting them wet from sweat which renders them ineffective.
Most experienced touring or backcountry skiers will know to carry a standard lightweight non insulated glove and immediately switch to that glove after15 - 30 minutes of skiing, thus keeping the heavier glove dry and ready to put on when you cool off and stop sweating during a lunch or other break in exercise.
