The Swix Shield Glove is designed by nordic skiers for women. It is in Swix's System IV category and considered a Thermal Weight glove. This glove has insulation in the palm, fingers, and back of the hand, PrimaLoft® insulation, that has been further refined to give it loft without bulk. This glove provides lighter insulation than an alpine glove making it perfect for aerobic winter activity during cold weather. These Nordic ski gloves are a perfect balance of warmth and flexibility.
