Best List: Lithic ski gloves by Arc’teryx

It is hard to write an unbiased review about some of the greatest ski gloves I have ever pulled on.

The Arc’teryx Lithic gloves skip leather in the palm and instead use thermoplastic polyurethane, or TPU. Its hydrophobic properties keep the gloves from taking on moisture, which in turn keeps your hands from getting cold.

Arc’teryx also uses Primaloft insulation and breathable Gore-Tex, with the company’s Tri-Dex Technology patterning making for a superb, natural fit and feel.

All the buzzwords and technology-speak in the world can’t begin to explain how lust-worthy these mitts actually are, though. The fit and finish are exceptional. Every feature is dialed in completely.

Whether you are headed into the back country to earn your turns or trying to get first chair for some front-side powder, the Lithic gloves are truly the jazz hands of ski gloves.
