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.

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."
