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 neoprene cuff with a sturdy pull tab to seal out the elements. The palm of the Gara Overglove is reinforced with leather for durability when handling poles in cold and wet environments. Thanks to a generous amount of Primaloft insulation in the liner, you can stay healthy, wealthy, and wise down to -9°F according to Trab (actual results may vary depending on your circulation). 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. 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 2019/20: Ski Trab decided to go stealth, and released their popular Gara Overglove in a (mostly) black design.
