Gear News – Montane receives prestigious Polartec European APEX Design Award 2011

Montane Sabretooth Gloves

Sabretooth Gloves triumph in Polartec®’s prestigious European APEX Design Awards 2011.

Our Sabretooth Gloves haven’t yet hit the shops but already they have won their first award. Due to go on sale this Autumn as part of our Autumn / Winter 2011 range, they have netted a prestigious Polartec® European APEX Design Award.

Constructed from Polartec® Power Shield® soft shell fabric which is both highly breathable and water repellent, the Sabretooth gloves were designed for high exertion activities in cold conditions. Taking advantage of the stretch and durability offered by Polartec® Power Shield, the close-fitting Sabretooth gloves feature roll tip finger construction for improved dexterity, a seam-free inside lower wrist for comfort, and a brushed tricot lining throughout to increase wicking and drying.

These yearly awards are presented to designers and companies that push the limits of Polartec® fabric with innovative garments and accessories. Items submitted are judged on innovation, design, style, workmanship, fit, and functionality. Winning products are then showcased at both the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market and OutDoor Friedrichshafen shows on the Polartec® stand.
