What is the "Air Vent" on LEVEL snowboard gloves and What does it do?

by Jim Bartlett Published: September 05, 2018, Updated: September 05, 2018

What is the

feature found on LEVEL snowboard gloves, the "Breathable System" is a quarter sized "air vent" that allows moisture to escape from inside the gloves or mittens, helping keep your hands dry and warm.

Allowing moisture to escape is beneficial in two circumstances:

  • On the mountain.  Moisture from your hands can escape the inside of the gloves, helping the inside of the gloves and your hands stay dry.
  • Off the mountain. Reduces the drying time of the gloves after your session.

When designed in combination with shell and liner materials that facilitate venting of moisture (like Gore Active and Gore Warm), the Breathable System and high quality breathable materials work together to keep your hands dry - an important job required to keep your hands warm.
