The Gara (Race) Overglove is Ski Trab’s way of keeping all 10 of your digits cozy and dexterous. Lightweight overgloves are the preferred way of employing thin race gloves in sub-zero temperatures. Instead of Velcro that can ball up with snow and be rendered useless, the Ski Trab uses a double-layer lycra cuff with a sturdy pull tab to seal out the elements. Thanks to a generous amount of insulation in the liner, you can stay healthy, wealthy, and wise down to -18°F according to Trab (actual results may vary depending on your circulation and whether you're wearing a glove underneath). The palm features a lateral opening to allow easy and unobstructed access to your fingers when you need to rip skins, manipulate boot levers, or eat a cookie. You can even tuck the finger cover under an elastic restraining loop on the back of the hand if you need to vent for a longer stint. The Gara Overglove is a necessary piece of gear and should always be in your pack if you are prone to cold hands or enjoy skiing between November and March.

  • 3-layer polyester softshell is breathable and windproof.
  • 140g of polyester insulation maintains its rating even if it gets wet.
  • Double-layer elastic lycra cuff seals out the cold while allowing for easy donning.
  • Grippy silicone is printed on the lycra around the palm opening.
  • DWR finish on the shell for added water-repellency.

Update 2019/20: Ski Trab decided to go stealth and released their popular Gara Overglove in a (mostly) black design.

Update 2021/22: Ski Trab has stepped their game up once again with more black, more stealth, more little logos. They are also referring to this glove as the, "Overglove Gara Plus."

Question from Brian
 
I don't see much reference to water resistance? I know this has the palm opening but I am in the PNW Cascades and just wondering whether rest of the glove materials will help keep out the wet? Thinking of using this as my downhill/warming glove for touring.

Hi Brian, these are water repellent with the DWR but not waterproof. Trab has the waterproof overglove for that, which isn't insulated.

Question from J. Brandon M
 
Hand circumference about 8” plus. Length about 7.5”. What size do you recommend.

Answer from Jeff
 
Hi Brandon, We went over in person. With a thin glove, the Medium works. With a bit thicker insulated glove, the Large size will work better.

Question from Shannon
 
Hi, do you know how the sizing compare to La Sportiva Overglove?
I have them in a size small and they are too roomy, circumference if hand is 7.5. The extra room is really in the wrist and length, even with glove or other mitts underneath.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Shannon, these have bigger size deltas. The small is smaller than the Sportiva small and the large is larger than the Sportiva large.

Question from Max M
 
I just bought the black diamond heavyweight screen tap gloves in a size small. I'm thinking of getting these overgloves to put over them. Do you think I should get a size small or a size medium? I obviously don't want them to be slim like the screen tap gloves, but I wasn't sure if they run big or 'true to size' since they are overgloves

Thanks

Max,

I would go with the small!

Question from Nils
 
Thoughts on how these gloves compare to the Dynafit Borax? Are they warmer? More resistant? Is the mechanism for getting your hand out better/worse?

I'll email help@skimo.co to get notified when L/XL is available :) Thanks

Answer from Zak M
 
Hey Nils, overall I would say that the Gara Overglove Plus outperforms the Borax with all your requirements. Also, I would prefer the mechanism for getting out of the mitt with the Gara Overglove Plus more than Borax. Here's a picture to help give you an idea as well! Thanks

Great mitten for cold training days and races! After searching for something that would provide extra warmth, but not be too bulky I was very happy to come across these. Being able to quickly rip a skin or access my phone with a glove liner has been a huge plus without having to expose my hands.

Question from Roy H
 
How is the sizing of these compared to the La Sportiva overmit? I felt that the S in the Sportivas was a little too big..but then again I wasnt wearing a lightweight glove when I tried them on.
11/24/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Roy! I just tried them on and they're pretty much identical in terms of sizing. That being said, make sure to try them on while wearing the glove that they're supposed to go over, that'll make a huge difference in fit. If you fit a small within reason, but will be wearing a glove underneath, the medium is probably the safer sizing choice. If you're wearing a super lightweight glove underneath though then the small is probably fine.
