Our ambassadors use our products in the coldest places in the world and gather valuable experience. Their feedback is continuously integrated into further product development.
Since 1994 we have been equipping expeditions, alpine tours and mountaineers. Our gloves have already been used successfully on Mount Everest, K2, in Siberia, at the South Pole and in Canada's far north.
With the HEAT LAYER SYSTEM you combine different LINERS (inner gloves) and SHELLS (mittens) with the POLAR HOOD (mitten overcoat). Choose the gloves that suit you best!

Purchased these about a year ago for both myself and my wife. Living in the central portion of Montana we have found that these work extremely well both in my photography work and other activities (such as snow removal). Temps here can dip to -20F for several weeks at a time with daytime highs not exceeding -10F. Found this to be very comfortable and warm. No regrets.....
As a passionate landscape-/naturephotographer, who also likes to throw himself into an adventure from time to time, it is very important for me, that my euipment always meets up to my expectations as well as doesn't fail when I need it most.
Especially in winter, it has always been a challenge for me to operate my camera with thick gloves. When I left them on, I pressed more than one button at once and when I took them off, I lost the feeling in my fingers after a little while due to conditions similar to blizzards - now I don't have these problems anymore.
After detailed research, I decided to buy the MERINO LAYER PRO and SHELL FULL LEATHER PRO. At first sight, the look and the way they were manufactured really impressed me. The only thing, that also attracted my attention, was the zipper in the palm on one's hand (SHELL FULL LEATHER PRO), which might not isolate as well as the rest of the gloves - though this could easily be compensated with additional layers.
For now, I wasn't able to test them thoroughly in really extreme conditions but this should change as soon as I take them with me on a small expedition to the arctic.
These things are worth every euro. Very warm, robust and completely thought out. Since everything just fits.
Comfortable to wear. Good and long warming effect
Not much used. Good for photography
The SHELL gloves are the further development of the HEAT 3 SMART. They are worn as the 2nd layer of the HEAT Layer System and can be combined with our Liners and the Polar Hood.
If you don't necessarily need the foldable thumb of the regular SHELL FULL LEATHER, you can exchange it for even more warmth, making the PRO model your perfect choice.
