Seirus Heatwave Zenith PRODUCT REVIEW:
Seirus Heatwave Zenith

First we need to start out by explaining what HeatWave technology is because that’s what this glove is all about. Basically, Seirus engineered a thermal reflective layer made with high wicking polyester/nylon blend, and it retains 20% more warmth inside the glove than the usual liner. It’s a non-battery heated glove that works like a battery heated glove because it reflects back your body heat. Reflects and amplifies. If your hands run hot, this may not be the glove for you, but if you want to make sure to stay warm, or have a hard time keeping your hands warm, this new technology will be your best friend. They proved to be water and windproof, while still staying breathable. There is a drawstring cinch around the cuff to keep snow out, a tightening/loosening band at the wrist for easy entry and exit, and a clip that keeps the gloves together when needed. These gloves performed perfectly. Hands were warm and dry.

Kombi PRODUCT REVIEW:
Kombi Glide glove

Despite the fact that this glove is made for warmer days, I have to tell you that it is still a very warm glove. The tight, low profile makes it easy to wear, but even on cold days I found this glove enough to keep my hands toasty. The micro-fleece liner on the inside is like "butta" on the hands. I'm big on comfort, and softness is always appealing, so I enjoyed putting these gloves on. The stretch polyester back keeps the glove breathable, while the leather makes for a sturdy glove. Lighter, smaller, and quite warm, the Kombi Glide performed well. AAA

Kombi Minx PRODUCT REVIEW:
Kombi Minx

This glove is a serious glove. Designed for warmth and comfort, the Minx performed like a charm. I wore the glove skiing and snowshoeing, and often my hands were too warm. It's been a warmer winter this year, but if your hands get cold easily you will love this glove. The waterproof shell and the breathable liner combine with the micro-fleece inner liner for comfort and performance. The Minx is a technical winter glove. It has a velcro wrist closure that allowed me to tighten the glove around my wrist to keep the snow and cold air out. I had zero problems with the glove during testing. A very nice wear.
