Need some gloves that will fight the coldest conditions? If so, the Swany Blackhawk gloves will do the trick without a doubt.
Swany combined many different technologies to make these gloves what they are. For the shell, they used a Smooth Grain Leather Shield with Aerodyne Palm Construction.
To insulate the Blackhawk’s, Swany used their Tri-plex+ insulation system. That system includes Primaloft with Dyna-Therm lining and Dryfinger Reflection Waterproof Breathable Insert. Wow, that’s a mouthful to say.
Another feature of these gloves is the zipper pocket on the top. There is a mesh lining in the pocket which is great to dump heat when your hands get too hot. I also found that this little pocket is great for putting a hand warmer in case your hands get too cold. But to be honest, I don’t think your hands will be getting too cold in these gloves.
There is also a wrist leash to keep you from losing these. Personally, I’m not a big fan of these, but they are definitely there for the people who are.
Lastly, you get your elastic band to tighten the gloves and keep the snow out. I absolutely love how there is a big rubber grip so you can tighten these single-handed.
All in all, the Swany Blackhawk gloves are great for cold, wet, and windy conditions. They are an extremely comfortable pair of gloves. A feature I really wish these had is touch-screen tips. These gloves are also a bit stiff so they aren’t the best when it comes to packing. Other than that, I don’t see how you can say no to these genuine leather, breathable, and waterproof gloves. I went skiing in 20-degree weather with these gloves and my hands never got close to being cold thanks to Swany’s Dryfinger technology.
