CAMP describes the G Comp Wind as the ultimate glove for spring ski tours and randonee races. We think the hyperbole is justified. The basic glove is lightweight, flexible and grippy. It really starts to shine, however, when the wind picks up and your hands cool off. Hidden in the top of the wrist is a Windmit'N, which you can pull out and cover your fingers on the fly. This shields your digits from the elements while leaving the palm exposed so you can still get a good grip your poles. As the race heats up, simply tuck the mitten back into the wrist and zip.
** Usage note: Extend the life of these gloves by removing the Windmit'N when working with bindings or skins.
Update 2019/20: CAMP now offers this glove in white as well as black and orange.
