The Patrol Glove from The North Face is an industry standard, and there are a few good reasons why. It starts with the 2-layer stretch nylon shell which covers the HyVent waterproof insert for excellent protection from wetness, day in and day out. Under that, you ll find The North Face s FlashDry lining that helps to minimize sweating and, when you do sweat, serves to wick that moisture away from your hands before it has a chance to make you cold. The palm is made of water-resistant leather, so it ll hold up to the rigors of everyday use without wearing out prematurely. In case you re out for a long time, or the day is just cold, there is 100-gram PrimaLoft One synthetic insulation in the palm, and 200-gram on the back of the hand.
