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.

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.

Brushtail Possum gloves

Very light, warm and breathable. Have only used them in mid 30’s F but they worked very well. Plenty warm and they breathe well enough that I kept them on throughout my hike when I normally would have removed other gloves due to sweat.

They WORK!

I have been searching for a pair of UL, quick-dry gloves with touch screen ability. After trying many that just don't work, I was delighted with these - THEY WORK! Love them - thanks :)

tellement chaud!

J'ai donné la taille S, un peu trop petite. La taille Medium est un peu trop grande, mais la chaleur est vraiment confortable. Un vrai plaisir pour les froides journées de trek.

Sizing is way off.

I bought a pair of these gloves following the sizing advice on this website. They were really warm, slightly itchy, and WAY too big. They were at least a knuckle and a half too long. I gave that pair to my husband (though they were still a bit too long for him), and I ordered a size small for myself. I hope they fit. Overall, I really like these gloves. I never find gloves warm enough for me, and these kept my fingers nice and toasty in 30º weather. The sizing is baffling. No one but the Grinch would find these gloves a good fit. Still, I think it's worth trying the smaller size. The inconvenience of too-long fingers doesn't negate the joy of warm digits!

Great warmth

Unfortunately I fall into the got the wrong size club. Dropping one size may not solve the problem ? I’ve worn the gloves as liners and had great warmth from them. I plan on sewing them to the correct size, I have time but not money to experiment on trying another size. I think they’re warm and will work once sized correctly.
