Excellent! I have the worst circulation and have tried literally every glove and mitten on the market. My hands and fingertips freeze within a few minutes of being in the cold wether it's mild or below zero. These gloves keep my fingertips warm! I do not have to wear anything else.

Winter weather can be harsh, but when the digits drop yours don’t have to feel the chill. Made from a combination of New Zealand's brushtail possum fur, and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool, these Brushtail Possum gloves provide plenty of warmth when you need it most.

Featuring conductive ends on both the index finger and thumb, these gloves will allow you to use your smartphone and other touch screen devices without having to remove them.

These gloves are a great companion to the Brushtail Possum Socks, and can be used as a liner under our Vertice Rain Mitts

*Gloves are non-returnable if they have been removed from the packaging.

Our Brushtail Possum gloves are produced by combining the fur of New Zealand's brushtail possum and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool.

The hair of brushtail possum is hollow, just like Polar Bear hair, which provides incredible warmth and water resistant.  While typical wool gloves may stay warm when wet, they take forever to dry. If you put these gloves in water, the water shakes right out and they dry quickly.

New Zealand's possums are unrelated to the opossums found in the United States. They are super cute, but they are also an invasive species that destroy the native plant and bird life.

These gloves are stretchy, but they run a bit small. They may shrink a bit if they are dried in a dryer. It is better to size up if on the line.


This item can be hand washed with warm water and soap or in a traditional washing machine.


The gloves should be line dried. Putting the gloves in a dryer may cause them to shrink a bit, but they do stretch back out.

Best Gloves EVER

These gloves are like none other. They are light weight but durable, comfortably soft, and unbelievably warm.

Didn’t last

Many holes after one week on trail. Only warm when it’s not too cold. Good down to about 35. Any colder than that you better have something else. After 3 weeks on trail there are two gaping holes and many smaller ones. Almost ready for the trash. A waste of $25. Should’ve just kept my cheap fleece gloves from decathlon. They worked just as good with NO holes after two years.

Truly warm!!

These gloves are the first of the dozens of gloves I’ve owned that actually keep my hands warm!! I have Raynaud’s and keeping my hands from freezing is always a serious challenge even above freezing temps. They run large, so I wish the small was a lot smaller for my size 6 hands. I have used them with a shell over mitt and they work great. Unfortunately, the knot isn’t tough/durable so I hope that in time this material will become a built-in liner to other types of gloves as fleece is used I. e. Work gloves, ski gloves, etc…

Great but delicate.

I love these gloves, they are by far the lightest and warmest UL gloves I can find. They’re quite delicate, however, so I buy oversized versions of them and then run them through a hot cycle in the washer and dryer to shrink them down to my size. This gives me a denser glove and helps them to last longer for me. I also wear them with a rain cover if I'm going to be handling hiking poles.

Love these gloves

The finger tips tend to wear out after a season but they are warm, light, easy to wear, stay warm when damp, etc. I usually darn the worn fingertips and get another season out of them.
