I already have a Spyder Jacket and needed matching winter gloves to match to keep my hands warm while skiing. I was blown away at how warm my fingers and palms are, thanks to the generous insulation! Over the top of the entire thumb area is a super soft, suede-like material that comes in handy when wiping melting snow between your goggles and your face. If you don't want the cold air to enter the space between your gloves and your jacket, the zippered undercuff gauntlet takes care of that. These B.A. Volcano Spyder gloves serve all of my needs!
