Hand in glove: new waterproof offerings from Showers Pass

Showers Pass waterproof cycling gloves

Apparel specialist Showers Pass is continuing a roll-out of product innovations that protect outdoor enthusiasts against foul weather with the latest release of the company’s Crosspoint Waterproof Gloves and Socks.

The Crosspoint Glove and Socks are ‘fully waterproof and made with three bonded layers’: a wear resistant knit exterior that feels like a regular knit glove, a seamless waterproof breathable Artex membrane, and a Coolmax FX moisture-wicking antibacterial knit lining to keep unwanted odour away.

In addition, an integrated silicone layer on the palm has been applied to allow a firm grip on objects in damp environments.

“We are committed to providing advanced design, materials and construction whenever we develop a new product,” says Kyle Ranson, President of Showers Pass. “Our Crosspoint Waterproof Socks offer a practical cross-category solution to cold, wet feet. We have seen an incredible adoption of our waterproof socks and rapid growth in this category over the last two years and we are excited to provide another product to enhance outdoor enthusiast experience in foul weather.

“The new Lightweight socks are 9% lighter than the original, but still maintain a durable reinforced toe and heel for maximum comfort. They effectively turn any athletic shoe into a rainproof solution.”

The gloves and socks combine ‘waterproof breathable performance, dexterous fit and a comfortable knit feel to make a sock and glove combination like no other’. Product is available for order now, shipping from 14 October and is available in Neon, Pink, Forest Camo, Grey Camo, Black, Grey.
