Cloudveil Zero-G Glove

Post by blogger | January 11, 2007      

There’s a storm in the forecast, and we’re hoping that it will bring us a big powder weekend. They say it will be a cold one, and I hate the cold. But thanks to all the goodies I get from Lou, I can forget my fear of frostbite and just focus on fun.

Keeping fingers warm is tricky for me, especially since I like to take off my gloves to adjust bindings or fish through my pockets for lipstick. I’ve tried lots of gloves and I think I’ve finally found my favorite for backcountry skiing: the Cloudveil Zero-G. It is mid priced and mid weight, yet surprisingly comfortable throughout a variety of temperature ranges. It’s perfect for all but the coldest days. And when my fingers do get cold, they usually heat up quickly when I ball my hand in the palm of the glove. I don’t know if it’s because of the Primaloft or the Schoeller but these hi-tech materials work together in a relatively light glove. It’s magic for me. If you’re in the market for a fine, all-season glove, consider the Zero-G.

Update 2010: This item is discontinued, we leave this review up for archival purposes.

    found Frozen Fritz… interesting bit of history..
    Those gloves sound great for x-sking as well as a slog up town in the Crested Butte cold and snow.
    Cheers, PD

    I too have these gloves and have found them warm as described, but a bit cold for resort skiing. My fingertips do get cold, and I think it’s from lack of significant wind-blocking material on the back of the fingertip area or in the liner. The fabric material used does, however, reduce the bulk and improve breathability for more touring and higher activity sports.
