The Patrol Glove from The North Face is an industry standard, and there are a few good reasons why. It starts with the 2 layer stretch nylon shell which covers the HyVent waterproof insert for excellent protection from wetness, day in and day out. Under that, you'll find The North Face's FlashDry lining that helps to minimize sweating and, when you do sweat, serves to wick that moisture away from your hands before it has a chance to make you cold. The palm is made of water resistant leather, so it'll hold up to the rigors of everyday use without wearing out prematurely. In case you're out for a long time, or the day is just cold, there is 100 gram PrimaLoft One synthetic insulation in the palm, and 200 gram on the back of the hand.
