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.

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.

Great product

These are my second pair of gloves. Completes out 2 sets of the gloves, socks & cap for my 2 packs. Especially love the socks as spares. When my boots are pour out the water wet I change to these possum socks and my feet stay pretty dry and warm. As always quick, timely service from zpacks. I love all their products of which I own many.
