Kombi. Kombi’s Elite & Metro Lines Rethink Winter Handwear

Kombi knows cold. Founded in Montreal by the family that still runs it, Kombi has been equipping people against freezing temperatures since 1961.

Everyone notices the number of Kombi kids’ mitts keeping little hands dry and warm in the schoolyard. Mittens and gloves for adults are soaring in popularity too. This season Kombi introduces two new lines to their family: Elite and Metro.

The Elite Collection

Sports in winter demand maximum hand protection. Slipping in and out of bindings, unzipping pockets in blowing snow on a hike, gripping rope when you’re belaying, you need to be able to feel your equipment and fingers. The Elite collection allows this and more.

Kombi has chosen different technologies for Elite gloves and mitts. Choose between waterproof Gore Tex, Gore Warm membranes where warmth is the top priority, or Gore Active breathable for energetic children. Going for synthetic or down insulation might depend on humidity and temperatures. Real or synth leather palms, wind-stopping engineering, and AccuDry moisture-wicking are just some of Elite’s available features.

The Metro Collection

Chic and practical, the Metro line keeps hands and fingers warm without compromising on urban aesthetics. Mittens are most definitely in, with increasingly sophisticated profiles to go with their critical warmth. Gloves are never out, though. Sleek and savvy, they’ve been re-engineered to stand up to the stiffest of cold fronts.

On certain models touch-screen compatibility let you keep your gloves on while texting. Retro designs bring an angle of fun to the line. Duck down, leather outers, Sherpa wool linings: everything went into creating a look and feel that offers the highest of technical innovation and the latest in urban style.
