Snowgrrl had the opportunity to test a pair of bright green Gordini ski gloves on the slopes of the Canyons resort in Utah last week. The Gordini ski gloves are super lightweight, featuring InSilk insulation. Gordini touts these as highly breathable ski or snowboard gloves, with climate control properties. The gloves are supposed to keep you warm when the thermometer drops and cool when temperatures rise.
We enjoyed a sunny bluebird day at the Canyons, with temperatures in the high 30s and low 40s. Sure enough, the gloves lived up to their promises. Snowgrrl is always skeptical when things seem to good to be true. But the insulation on these Venture gloves did not compress or get wet, even when we accidentally ended up on a scary trail called Rendezvous Ridge and fell (it looked challenging, but short – it turned out to be long and way above our ability level). We love that the insulation is an all natural material, with no petrochemicals or byproducts.
The shell of the gloves is made of Select Flex fabric, with flex grip fingers, palm and thumb reinforcement. They are even touch screen capable, though it is a little awkward pressing little buttons on your phone while wearing thick gloves. The Venture gloves are also breathable, waterproof, and windproof. We love the bright green color. Overall, the Venture gloves pass snowgrrl’s test of being cute and functional, so we are happy to recommend these!
