What's so special about our gloves?
Snowmobiling is tough on your gear, that's something we all experienced first hand. We learnt the hard way what it takes to build the best gloves you ever had.
The world ́s best leather comes from Pittards in England.
The leather in TOBE ́s Sympatex gloves uses Pittard ́s Armor-tan technology, meaning the fibers in the leather are reinforced with microscopic ceramic plates. The result is leather that is up to 25% stronger than regular leather.
ARMOR-TAN® FOR A NEW GENERATION OF BACKCOUNTRY PERFORMANCE
The fibril bundles in the structure leather are encased by microscopic ceramic ‘armor plates’. This creates leathers that provide more abrasion resistance and durability against wear on contact surfaces. The combined technologies offer multiple performance benefits, such as water and perspiration resistance while the digital surface pattern ensures superior grip in various winter applications.
TOBE´s waterproof gloves utilize the Sympatex 45,000mm membrane and have all the weatherproofing and performance benefits that come with this technology.
