There are 2 criteria for choosing a pair of adult ski gloves: dexterity and warmth.
Size is also important to take into account when choosing your gloves.
We tell you everything you need to know to keep your hands warm on the slopes.

dexterity, heat or both?

Tip: whether gloves, mittens or lobsters, all our products are equipped with an elastic cord that goes around the wrist so you can remove your gloves on the ski lifts without losing them, and a wrist strap to put them back on quickly and efficiently.

For even more warmth:



Each glove model meets a specific need for warmth according to your sport, your heat regulation or the weather! You can find these indications directly on the signs in shop or on the product description on Decathlon.fr.

How to read this information?

Mittens have the added advantage of keeping fingers together and therefore retain more heat.

LENGTH

Finally, size is important when selecting ski gloves. The pair you choose should not compress your fingers, which cuts off circulation and makes them feel colder. When you try them on, leave 1 cm at the end of each finger when your hand is outstretched.

The optimal size allows a thin layer of air to slip between your hand and the glove lining for optimal breathability and to wick away perspiration and maintains warmth.

Please note that some glove models adjust to the wrist size with a Velcro fastener, so they are not too tight yet do not let the cold in.

As the size references are different for some of our gloves, we advise you to refer to "Which size to choose" on the product sheet of your favourite pair!

Tip: If you are used to wearing silk gloves underneath your ski gloves, make sure you wear these inner gloves when you try on your gloves!

My little tip: If you take off your gloves when you stop for a while on the ski slopes (such as when eating), remember to store them against your chest, inside your jacket, to keep them warm so you’re not cold when you leave.
