WINNER - Win a Pair of Outdoor Research Bitterblaze gloves Competition


WINNER: patersonr

The Bitterblaze gloves from Outdoor Research are the perfect glove for Alpine or Scottish winter use. They offer a huge amount of insulation whilst maintaining dexterity to allow you to keep your hands fully protected at all times.

They use a technology from PrimaLoft called Aerogel on the palm and fingers to stop cold transfer. Alongside this technology the gloves also feature a GORE-TEX insert, a Pittards Oiltac leather palm to maintain grip even in the wet and cold and PrimaLoft Gold insulation on the back of the hand.

PrimaLoft Aerogel is a flexible, lightweight, compression-resistant insulation that doesn't conduct heat or cold. It's created by combining a polymer with a liquid to form a gel, and then replacing all of that liquid with air. Aerogel is a thermal barrier consisting of 98.2% air, making it highly efficient. Unlike other insulations, Aerogel is trusted by NASA space travel and best for applications where compression resistance and warmth is important.

Is this some sort of special way not to have to part with a prize?

On my phone it will only let me select either of the two wrong answers...

Same on my PC. You can't choose the right answer!

Ditto. Very cheeky!
