Arc’teryx Fission SV Glove

See all pictures

In high-output or during demanding winter sports, you’ll need a glove that can juggle breathability, mobility, and warmth without compromise. Arc’teryx claims the Fission SV is their warmest “multi-sport” glove, meaning if you see yourself spending a lot of time off the resort you likely won’t find a better option.

The range of motion of this model is unmatched, ensuring hassle free backcountry transitions and saving you the frustration of taking off your glove for specific tasks.

The Fission SV shell is made of lightweight, windproof polymer overlain with goat leather, with an additional waterproof Gore-Tex insert. They’re filled with Primaloft insulation suitable for subfreezing temperatures, but not necessarily for extreme cold. That being said, you may find the Fission SV a little too warm for uphill travel in the springtime.
