Outdoor Research Bitterblaze Aerogel Space Age Glove

Award-winning ice and mixed climbing gloves with insulation trusted by NASA.

Conduction is the fastest way to lose heat from your hands. If you've ever held onto a ski lift or bare axe shaft in -10 to -20oC (even with gloves) you'll know about it and quickly. The idea behind these gloves is that the Aerogel pad in the palm and fingers will stop this process of thermal conduction in to the surface you are holding. Aerogel has a very low thermal conductivity and is extremely light and uncompressable, making it perfect for glove palm insulation. The 1.5mm of aero gel in the Bitterblaze has as much insulation as just over 3 thick jumpers! It's surprising it hasn't been used until now really. 

Ice climbing is a delicate, precision-driven sport, and the gear that goes along with it needs to be built in the same way. That's exactly how they developed the new BitterBlaze Gloves, designed to deliver the dexterity, durability, and warmth that ice and mixed climbers demand. This groundbreaking glove uses the waterproof trustworthiness of GORE-TEX®, the resilience of Pittards® Oiltac goat leather, and the revolutionary warmth of PrimaLoft® Aerogel insulation used in NASA space travel. This compression-resistant thermal barrier is patterned over the palm and fingers of each glove, with multiple panels that allow retention of grip and freedom of movement. Each customized Aerogel insert reduces heat loss from freezing cold elements, like ice, rock, tools, and rope, allowing you total focus on the task at hand. Detailed down to the very last seam, the BitterBlaze Gloves also include a carabiner loop for easy storage, pull-on loop for no-fuss application, an elasticized wrist for further range of motion, and hook and loop wrist closures to trap in heat and fasten gloves securely. Go on, get out there, and kick some ice with the BitterBlaze Gloves on hand.
