Brushtail Possum Gloves
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.
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.
Made in New Zealand.
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.

I love these and they are better than I could have ever even imagined. They are warm soft and light
The Vertice Rain Pants was the last item to cap off my Zpacks supply (rain mittens, possum gloves, gaiters, kilt, bear bag, dry bags, stuff sacks, shoulder pouch, water bottle sleeve, zip wallet, zip phone pouch, zip phablet pouch). I would have ordered the rain pants earlier, but the description said that the pants ankles fit shoes up to size 12 (and I’m a 13+). After texting Customer Service Guy Patrick, he said that 13 would work. I found a pair my size on Zpacks’ Bargain page ... and jumped on it. The pants arrived in the record time of 3 days! I can’t tell you how happy I’ve been with both the quality of products and service provided with the Zpacks family.
We shut off the heat when we sleep and I tried wearing the gloves as an extra layer of warmth. Perfect! My hands stay warm and I don't notice I have gloves on.
The gloves are wormer then my sky gloves,, work great..Thanks.
Overall a great experience! This company has very fast shipping and these gloves are a quality item. Just today the temperature was about 30 degrees oh, I put the gloves on roll my windows down when I was on the highway my hands didn't get cold at all. I would recommend them to anybody!
