Re: [pyrotech] Gloves?

What temperature are you talking?

If you are freezing and numb from a static line jump then your DZ is probably really cold. I can jump no gloves down to about -15C at altitude without numbness, so ask how cold it gets at your DZ at altitude as you will be up there real soon!Cool

Batting gloves or similar are good up until about -15-20C

Anything colder and windstopper gloves are best, but you pay much more for those.

I have some Roeckl windstopper mountain biking gloves for really cold loads. It was -28C the other day at altitude and my dribble (from blow switch) was literally frozen on my face but my fingers were toasty.
