Heat Layer System

These liner gloves are part of the Heat Layer System, which was developed for military units in Germany and Austria but now popular worldwide as multifunctional outdoor gloves. With this system, you combine different inner gloves (liners) with other layers depending on how much the weather hates you. This way you have one glove system that works in very versatile weather conditions and you get insulating air in-between the layers.

1st Layer: Liner gloves

The first layer of the system offers 10-20% of the total heat output. Choose the liner according to the weather and what you do in it.

2nd Layer: Warm Shell Mittens

The second layer on top of the Liners is the super warm Shell Mittens that are made in different material combinations. The finger compartment zips open and folds down when you need to be able to use your fingers or operate touch screens.

3rd LAYER: Polar Hood

The outermost layer consists of windproof and water-resistant pullover mittens that offer additional protection against wind and moisture. These triple layers are fit for the coldest and harshest regions of the world.

Heat2 Gloves

Fingerless gloves with a mitten cap. Made from fleece or softshell fabric and perfect for the transition seasons.

1st + 2nd Layer: Heat 3 Gloves

These combine the first and second layer into one entity. The liner and shell mitten are sewn together, which is excellent for folks that have a tendency to misplace gloves or those that just need winter gloves for one type of winter, cold.

Materials

Strong wind- and water-repellent fabric made from 100% nylon with a membrane coating makes the Polar Hood robust and extremely durable. Thanks to the soft fabric on the thumb, you can wipe off glasses and displays without leaving scratches.

Warm gloves for every situation

Military use

Originally, this glove system was developed for special force units in Germany and Austria. The system has proven itself in military use in the coldest conditions and is continuously being developed further.

Photography

This glove system is appreciated by outdoor photographers all over the world. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, photographers appreciate the warmth and versatility these gloves offer.

Mountaineering

The Heat Company gloves are very popular even in the most difficult mountain climate. In extreme weather conditions, the Heat Layer System offers optimum protection against wind and moisture without restricting mobility. Their extremely warm gloves have been used successfully on the tallest mountains of the world.

Hunting

They are also great for cold weather hunting, especially sitting in the blind. The Heat 3 Smart glove was also the test winner for driven hunt gloves in the Jäger Magazine. The Heat Company gathers feedback from hunters and uses it for consistent product development.

Skiing and other winter sports

These gloves and mittens keep your fingers warm during all winter sports, no matter whether it’s cycling, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, or snowmobile riding.

Choosing the right size

These come in two sizes, Small and Large. The numbers refer to which sized liners and shell mittens they pair with. We also added your recommended hand circumference in the table below.

Hood size Pairs with gloves Metric Freedom
Small 6-8 14-19.5 cm 5.5”-7.8”
Large 9-13 20-30 cm 7.9”-18.8”

Made by The Heat Company

Austrian Heat Company has been equipping soldiers, expeditions, alpine tours and mountaineers in the coldest places in the world since 1994. Their gloves, hand warmers, and insoles have been used successfully e.g. on Mount Everest, K2, in Siberia, at the South Pole, and in Canada's far north. Feedback from the field is constantly integrated into further product development. True to the motto: Born in the Alps - Worldwide at home!
