Solite Gloves 5:3mm Split Mitt - 2023/Black
Completely Redesigned for Optimal Comfort, Fit, and Flexibility
Our entire Solite glove line for Fall 2022-Winter 2023 has been redesigned for improved fit and flexibility along with unmatched grip, durability, and warmth. The Solite 5:3 Split-Mitt is designed for the most frigid conditions mother nature can dish out.
The 5:3 Split-Mitt now features a more flexible 3D Grip Palm with better stretch to fit more hand shapes. The 3D Grip is a sticky, rail-grabbing compound with full palm/finger coverage to repel water and keep the glove light for max dexterity.
Unlike "lobster-claw" style gloves, our exclusive Split-Mitt design joins your pointer finger with your middle finger to insure the pointer finger stays warm. This simple but effective design allows you to have the same warmth as a mitten, without the clumsiness of all fingers in one pocket.
The Split-Mitt is pre-shaped with a curve in the fingers for comfortable, natural paddling position and features a single back panel for max flexibility, durability, and comfort.
The 5:3 Split-Mitt features a unique Thermal-Rebound plush, quick-dry interior lining material. Thermal-Rebound material features a thin, flexible metallic grid-layer between the neoprene and the outer lining, reflecting body heat back to the skin for enhanced warmth. Lab tests on the Thermal Rebound laminate show an increase in insulation exceeding 10%, which extends your sessions and increases your odds of getting the wave of the day.
To maximize lifespan, we've utilized the most durable seam construction available.
The 5:3 Split-Mitt has a pre-curved, anatomical shape out of the box, putting your hand and fingers in perfect paddling position without any strain on the hands/fingers. This shape reduces fatigue and allows longer, warmer, more comfortable sessions.
Flexibility, durability, and comfort is also optimized with minimal seam construction. Most gloves feature 4 or more neoprene panels, reducing flexibility, comfort, and providing more seams to leak. The 5:3 Split-Mitt only has 3 panels: a single back panel, single palm panel, and EZ-O cuff panel. This simplified pattern results in incredible comfort, easy on/off, and versatile fit for a variety of hand shapes.
