Windproofness is the key aspect required to balance warmth, lack of bulk, and dexterity in winter riding gloves. The Garneau San Reno Gloves use a material called WindDry on the back of the hand and fingers to do just this. It armors your hand against bone-chilling wind as you ride. This way, the insulating effect of the inner portion of the gloves is not lost at speed. WindDry is a three layer fabric with two knit layers sandwiching a waterproof/windproof polyurethane membrane.Most of the palm is made of a microfiber with a feel similar to leather. The difference is that it's durable and can be washed easily when the gloves get funky. One issue we've always had with winter gloves is that they bunch in the palm when we wrap our hands on the bars. Not so with the San Reno Gloves. Garneau uses a light mesh in the region of the fold in the hand and between the thumb and forefinger. The mesh also allows excess heat to escape, keeping your hands from getting too sweaty and being uncomfortable. The designers at Garneau even added something called Fish Grip to the base of the fingers and along the length of the first two fingers. It has raised dots for grip and works great in wet or dry conditions to improve grip.The Garneau San Reno Gloves are Black and come in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. They have a soft microfiber wipe on the thumb for your runny nose or sweaty brow, and a 3mm gel insert is placed at the outside of the palm for comfort on coarse roads.
