The 686 Flex Insulated Glove is built for all-winter protection and comfort. To achieve this, 686 uses much thicker insulation on the back of the hand than on the palm so you can still feel what you are touching. It then added an anti-slip reinforcement panel to the palm to give you more grip. The final touch is the ladder-stretch finger inserts that allow your fingers to bend much more easily than most gloves for greater comfort and a more natural feel.
686 equipped the Flex glove with an Infidry 10 membrane so fat, fluffy flakes won't seep through when you're knee-deep in powder. A tough Sand-Grip anti-slip palm reinforcement adds dexterity, so you can pick things up without taking your gloves off. The partially elasticized neoprene cuff seals out snow and drafts and includes a soft high-loft Sherpa fleece lining for comfort. Adjustable cuff closure is made possible with a hook-and loop strap, and a nylon webbing adjustment at the wrist allows you to customize the feel. 686 also added a soft Velvex nose wipe for snot management.
When the weather isn't frigid, you want a glove that's warm, waterproof, and way more dextrous. The 686 Flex Glove has a 60g synthetic insulation that adds just the right amount of warmth. The fabric is backed by a waterproof membrane so hands don't get wet. Since the Flex Glove has such little bulk, it's extremely dextrous. An anti-slip palm gives you even more control, and a low-pro cuff provides a seamless fit with your jacket.
