The Kilpi BRICX-U gloves are made of the SIBERIUM SRC WB softshell material, which protects your hands from the cold and wind. That's why they're great for cross-country skiing and ski touring. The warm Thinsulate synthetic filler is guaranteed to keep your hands warm and dry. A double layer of synthetic leather is used on the inner bend of the thumb, which is more resistant to abrasion from using poles. The gloves have an anti-slip silicone print on the palms. An elastic cuff around the wrist warms your hands.
