An upgraded version of the landmark G Comp Wind glove, the new Power version features a premium goatskin leather for enhanced grip and durability. This makes it possible to use your skimo gloves for cold weather activities that have even more intense hand usage, such as nordic skiing or winter biking. The G Comp Wind Power still features the innovative Windmit'N that optionally protects your fingers or can be stowed in the wrist compartment. This glove could easily replace the G Comp as the new benchmark for light and fast ski mountaineering.
- Synthetic insulating glove is light yet breathable, ideal for high-aerobic cold weather activities.
- Ripstop nylon Windmit'N is hidden in the top of the wrist and can be pulled out to protect your finger from biting wind.
- Premium goatskin leather palm maximizes grip, durability, and dexterity.
- Terry wipe on the thumb can be used to wipe your brow before the sweat stings your eyes.
** Usage note: Remember to remove the Windmit'N from your fingers when working with pinchy bindings or gluey skins to avoid damaging the nylon.

Questions & Reviews
The wind mitt is a good blend between small size (not really noticed on the wrist) and warmth, though some magic fibers that would allow it to be used near ski edges or bindings would be great. Still not terribly warm when sitting around, but for movement in variable alpine conditions, like in Summit / Vail near treeline, they are awesome.
Over a month into their second season, an outer seam along the index finger has ripped. Skin is not showing, but it's still a little disappointing. To be fair though, I've put these through the wringer--this wear and tear is not completely unwarranted but deserves mention.
On a different note, they aren't waterproof so I wouldn't recommend digging around in a snow pit with them. Wet gloves are no fun.
Other than those gripes, I absolutely love these gloves and will continue to use them until my fingers show. They fit well and allow impressive dexterity. They are breathable and yet you can stay warm in them in surprisingly cold temperatures (if you work hard on the skin track and use the mittens on the way down). The leather palm provides great grip and you can even operate a smartphone with them for that picture you'll post on Instagram later. I just wish the wind mitten had lasted a bit longer--without it, hands get cold on the way down.
Summary = These will be in regular rotation alongside my Dynafit race gloves until I shred them. No complaints.
