As a relatively new company, Tyson and I both believe that Hand Out Gloves is leading the industry when it comes to innovative and functional glove design. Their design is unlike anything we’ve ever seen and they make perfect sense.
Hand Out Gloves were built partially around the frustration of constantly taking gloves on and off in the backcountry and at the resorts. With Hand Out Gloves, you fit the glove cuff once to your wrist (this includes trying to squeeze your jacket around your glove) and then you have endless access to your hand all day without ever re-adjusting or taking the gloves off.
The zipper, placed on the top of the hand, is waterproof and easy to open and close. The hand portion of the glove or mitt then folds down and with a Velcro strap, you can keep it in place for extended periods of time.
By far the best part about Hand Out gloves and mittens is the easy access to your hand. If you’re anything like us, you are constantly pulling a glove off, setting it in the snow or in your teeth, while you complete a quick and simple task. The other amazing feature of Handout gloves and mittens is that you can also just unzip the zipper on the top of your hand and allow for extra ventilation. This is perfect for skinning! Your fingers wont get cold but they wont get sweaty either.
Technically speaking, Hand Out gloves and mittens are made with very soft and comfortable high-quality cowhide leather. The lining is a super soft Hipora with a waterproof lining so if you have your hands in the snow for most of the day, you won’t get wet in the afternoon.
Hand Out gloves and mittens minimize the amount of frustration you will face throughout the day constantly removing your mittens or gloves. They allow for some air ventilation that is hard to come by in other gloves, and work extremely well whether you’re simply checking your cell phone or doing something extreme.
Right now, there are only two designs from Hand Out; the gloves and the mittens. They are a unisex glove/mitten but are fitted more towards men so ladies be sure to definitely size down. Hand Out has some plans of trying to apply their design and technology to the women’s niche and I really hope they do! The small mittens fit me pretty well and are not too big. We are so excited to watch Hand Out grow and can’t wait for them to start coming out with new designs and fits. Be sure to look into them so you can get your Hand Out!
