Warm, dry and tough, the Fission Glove combines the proven protection of GORE-TEX® XCR product technology, thermal performance of Primaloft®, a hardwearing Fortius™ 1.0 softshell outer, and the ruggedness of leather. Breathable waterproof protection comes from an ergonomically designed GORE-TEX® with XCR® product technology insert. The outer is made from Arc’teryx Fortius™ 1.0 softshell for a high level of abrasion resistance, performance stretch, and exceptional air permeability to help speed moisture transfer. A brushed polyester lining runs fingertip to wrist to add warmth, comfort and wick moisture.
Backcountry environments are harsh and demanding. Gloves need to work as an extension of the hand, as removing them to perform simple tasks can be uncomfortable, even dangerous. The Fission Glove is carefully shaped to fit and move naturally, and a unique insulation solution is used to facilitate performance. At the palm and fingers, the areas where hands need the freedom to work, Arc’teryx uses 100 g PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Eco with Grip Control. This carefully designed insulation is engineered to provide better dexterity and grip through a process that reduces slippage between the layers within the glove. Its construction also resists packing out with repeated use, maintaining the insulation’s value over time. On the back of the hand, an area more exposed to cold, lofty 133 g PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation is used for maximum warmth.

Arc'teryx challenges what exists, manufacturing new ideas is their culture. Passion and curiosity fuel a continual drive to explore, to push the boundaries of what is known, regardless of assumptions. Founded by Vancouver climbers in 1989, Arc’teryx has but one single goal; to create equipment that enables a person to be immersed in the moment of doing, regardless of external conditions.
Their Design Centre is a hive of likeminded individuals, a hands-on think tank of active designers, materials experts, pattern makers and product developers who know what they want, how it will be used and why it has to work. Arc’teryx's dedication to craftsmanship is expressed through their manufacturing processes, quality and integrity can only be achieved through effective partnership with their factories and suppliers.
Arc’teryx strive to deliver products that are as good as they can possibly be, so that they perform over time and beyond expectation, this is the heart of what Arc'teryx does and the roots of the company — to create what does not yet exist.
