Warm, dry and tough, the Fission Glove combines the proven protection of GORE-TEX® XCR product technology, thermal performance of Primaloft®, a hardwearing Fortius™ 1.0 softshell outer, and the ruggedness of leather. Breathable waterproof protection comes from an ergonomically designed GORE-TEX® with XCR® product technology insert. The outer is made from Arc’teryx Fortius™ 1.0 softshell for a high level of abrasion resistance, performance stretch, and exceptional air permeability to help speed moisture transfer. A brushed polyester lining runs fingertip to wrist to add warmth, comfort and wick moisture.
Backcountry environments are harsh and demanding. Gloves need to work as an extension of the hand, as removing them to perform simple tasks can be uncomfortable, even dangerous. The Fission Glove is carefully shaped to fit and move naturally, and a unique insulation solution is used to facilitate performance. At the palm and fingers, the areas where hands need the freedom to work, Arc’teryx uses 100 g PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Eco with Grip Control. This carefully designed insulation is engineered to provide better dexterity and grip through a process that reduces slippage between the layers within the glove. Its construction also resists packing out with repeated use, maintaining the insulation’s value over time. On the back of the hand, an area more exposed to cold, lofty 133 g PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation is used for maximum warmth.
