Icon - Alcan Glove
100% Warmth for 100% Adventure. Like any adventure, you need to be ready for whatever may happen, weather can be so unpredictable. The Alcan Glove is the solution: more insulation, TPR reinforcement, an integrated D3O knuckle and revised gauntlet design for a better seal underneath. Alcan keeps the cold out while keeping the adventure in.
The difference between this and other cold weather gloves ? The Raiden Alcan gloves actually include armor. The D3O armor, if you are not familiar with, is not a hard metal or plastic piece, but actually a formable elastomer material that absorbs the energy and spaces it out and returns to form. You will find this in many of Icons jackets and gloves.
As far as fit, the gauntlet closure is designed to go under the cuff of jacket, which is different from many cold weather gloves that go over the jacket, sometimes allowing rain to drip down into the glove. The design to go under the jacket eliminates that possibility. The suede palms add extra grip for all the controls.
For all the above, this is a great buy at the price Icon has the glove listed at.
