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.

I absolutely love these possum down gloves. I've ordered two pairs so far and am currently using them on my A.T. Thru hike attempt. They are light weight and warm. Perfect for those early chilly mornings. I would definitely recommend them.

Great gloves

Great base layer gloves. Work perfectly with iPhone. Nice to not have to take off a glove to check your phone.

Awesome gloves

Very comfortable and have used them in temps of 25 to 30f with no issues. Haven't had long enough to comment on durability. Very pleased. Fast shipping also
