Technology & Innovation
Want the warmth of wool but the wicking superiority of fleece? LavaWool® is our answer. This patented weave of synthetic fibers and wool combines the inherent insulating properties of wool while allowing moisture to wick away from your skin. Unlike pure wool, which absorbs and retains moisture, LavaWool® will keep you warmer and drier. In independent tests, LavaWool® outperforms 100% of wool and leading synthetic fabrics.
Our premium goose down insulating concept, GooseDown is designed to never clump or let in the cold. A unique construction captures the down in small chambers, ensuring that the fill is evenly distributed and will not migrate. These gloves and mitts are all insulated with 600-fill-power goose down. GooseDown mitts have wraparound insulation for ultimate warmth, while GooseDown gloves have back-of-hand insulation with Megaloft® synthetic insulation on the palms to optimize your warmth and dexterity. Gordini supports the Responsible Down Standard in our use of down.
AquaBloc® is our proprietary waterproof, windproof, breathable technology. Engineered exclusively for hand wear, our seam-sealed AquaBloc inserts allow moisture molecules to escape without letting water molecules in. It is the best of both worlds: let your sweaty hands breath while staying warm and dry.
GORE-TEX® Technology keeps water out of our gloves, while allowing moisture from the inside (perspiration) to easily escape. The result is a glove that’s highly breathable and totally waterproof. The microporous structure of the GORE-TEX® membrane is what makes GORE-TEX® products completely waterproof. Each microscopic pore is about 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, which means no external moisture – from rain to snow – can penetrate the membrane. The pores in the Gore-Tex membrane are 700 times bigger than a water vapor molecule, so perspiration can easily evaporate through and you can stay dry from the inside-out. Waterproof, windproof, and breathable. GORE-TEX® INFINIUM technology is absolutely windproof with extreme breathability.

Outrigger Helmet Compatibility System
Safety shouldn’t be secondary to performance and comfort. Gordini® Outrigger Helmet Compatibility System utilizes hinged outriggers to fit any helmet profile, providing a superior goggle seal, while distributing pressure evenly across the face. The outriggers lay flat when not in use, so you can wear any Helmet Compatible goggle with or without the helmet.
Air Flow Design - AFD®
Gordini® takes the fight against fog seriously— our mission is to deliver the maximum optical experience so you can take your skills further. Our Air Flow Design maximizes air circulation throughout the goggle, using vents in the lens and frame to constantly scoop out moisture, keeping your field of vision dry and fog-free. Hiking the pipe or into the backcountry, or just lapping the lift, AFD® equals uncompromised performance.
