Gordini Stash Lite Touch Glove

These ultrabreathable featherweights pack a lot of warmth into a tiny, affordable package.

Brand: Gordini

Model: Stash Lite Touch Glove


Warmth “I put these on for a 2.5-mile walk on a 7°F morning,” reports a Colorado tester. “I expected to switch to burlier gloves, but I wanted to give these a chance. An hour later, I arrived at my destination with warm fingers.” Credit Gordini’s 100-percent silk insulation, which traps heat very effectively for its weight. Note: The Stash Lites aren’t waterproof.
Breathability Even our big-guy sweat-monster couldn’t max out the wicking power of the hydrophobic insulation and windproof nylon shell when skinning up sunny, 2,000-foot slopes on frigid or windy days.

Packability Each glove compresses to golf ball-size in a cuff pocket.

Dexterity “Of all the gloves I’ve used,” says one editor, “these are easiest to use with a touchscreen, because you can use the fabric as a stylus without it having to conduct through contact with your skin.” But “sloppy” is how several testers described the fit. And they’re delicate—avoid sharp stuff.
