CIMALP HERCULE: HIGHLIGHTS
The first thing stands ot of this gloves is the built to last construction, apart form the softness of its inner glove in contact with the skin.
PRIMALOFT GOLD AND REMOVABLE INNER GLOVE
The inner glove its made out of PrimaLoft Gold and boiled wool Insulation. Primaloft® Gold 60g insulation (and all of its many variants) is the best type of synthetic insulation out there. It was specifically designed for people who lead active lifestyles, even when the weather outside is horrendous. Therefore, its primary focus is retaining and providing warmth when you get wet.
The removable inner glove helps fast drying in any condition.
ULTRASHELL WATERPROOF MEMBRANE
ULTRASHELL® is a developed brand by CIMALP, that for example in the jackets like the VINSON 5H, offers 8 times more breathability as many others in the markets. In the case of this Hercule gloves its 20.000 mm waterproof and 80.000 breathability, which make it climb to the top in the market.
REINFORCED GOAT LEATHER PALM
Double reinforment in the palm to protect and avoid easy worn out. Nubuck on the thumb to to wipe away perspiration on the forehead.
CIMALP HERCULE: CONCLUSIONS
The Hercule gloves are deisgned to last and you feel directly that once you wear them.
It is not only they are warm and robust, but also the little details like the inner glove and the combination between Primaloft Gold and wool what make them different, without forgetting the very attractive price of only 99€ (at the moment on sales)
We have only used them once, so far and the fitting and grip while using them has been really good, lets wait for more bad weather and see how do they perform, however, that we will let you know in the coming weeks after we keep on testing them in the Alps.
