How do I take care of my gloves?

Proper care can extend the life of your gloves in a significant manner.


Before use, we recommend impregnating leather ski gloves for better dirt resistance. Moreover, it is advisable to treat leather parts regularly with commercial leather care. Proper care reduces cracks and abrasion and keeps the leather supple for longer.


Further, we recommend the gloves be properly ventilated, avoid packing them if damp or wet, and regularly wash dirt away with a damp cloth. Additionally, you may apply a gentle hand wash in lukewarm water with a low dose of mild detergent. Please avoid heavy-duty detergent. After washing, the gloves should be lightly wrung out and dried at room temperature. Drying with dryers, in the heater or using a hair-dryer can turn materials -especially leather- stiff and brittle and damage laminations.


After drying, we recommend treating the textile parts again with commercial waterproofing spray and applying commercial leather balm to leather parts.


How can I stow my Vario poles correctly when damp/wet?

Pull the individual pole sections apart and let them dry.
