Gear of the Week | ZANIER REVOLUTION.XZX Gloves

The grippy freeride glove with style

by Patrick Baueregger 01/06/2019
The Zanier Revolution.XZX is a robust glove for the medium temperature range, which I put through its paces in the backcountry. The glove appears to be very well made. Fit and comfort are just as important as functionality.

The upper material of the Revolution.XZX, developed in cooperation with Austrian freeride greats, is made of goatskin and 4-way stretch. The palm is made of goatskin and Amara patches. The palm is reinforced in the area of the thumb and index finger. Zanier has used PrimaLoft, a synthetic down that is particularly warm, soft, water-repellent and breathable, as the inner lining. Beautiful details such as the goggle wiper (goggle cleaning cloth on the thumb) and the comfortable wide leash for the wrist make the glove a high-quality companion.

Even after around 25 days of skiing, my hands stay dry and warm - the waterproof ZA TEX membrane has proven its worth. For me, the comfort temperature goes down to about -10 degrees, then it gets a bit chilly with the Revolutihon.XZX.

The Pro Lock system for a secure hold of the glove is easy to use and very reliable. The glove doesn't slip out of place and the jacket fits perfectly over it without having to fumble around too much.

A grip strip is sewn into the palm of the hand to ensure grip on poles or when carrying skis. It worked quite well at first. After a few days, however, part of this coating came off. I guess this came from the edge of the ski.

I particularly like the fit, the comfort and the practical Pro Lock closure of the Revolution.XZX. There are slight deductions for the signs of wear in the palm.
