You already know you are thankful for snowmobiles and riding in general so why not get a little more specific about some of your gear? Take your gloves for instance. They are great assets in many different ways. Here are a few reasons you should be thankful for the good snow mobile riding gloves you have.
Reason#1: They keep your hands warm
The most obvious reason you are thankful for your snowmobile gloves is because they keep your hands toasty warm from your wrists down to your fingers. You can ride longer when you hands are comfortable and warm.
Reason#2: They keep your hands dry
Part of keeping your hands warm is keeping them dry. If the old, wet snow permeates the gloves, your hands will be uncomfortable very fast. When your gloves keep that moisture out, be thankful!
Reason#3: They cut the wind
The right snow mobile gloves will also cut the wind away from the hands and keep it from chilling your hands. It can be windy and cold and your hands will never feel it.
Reason#4: They can lengthen rides
You ride as long as you are comfortable and feel the desire to ride. When your gloves work right, they allow you to ride for longer if time allows.
Reason#5: They protect you
No one wants to fall, but you never know when an accident could happen. Your gloves can protect your hands against the hard snow and ice if you ever took a tumble.
Reason#6: They keep your hands from going numb
You already know your gloves keep your hands from going numb from the cold, but what about other factors? Have your hands ever gone numb from the vibration on your vehicle? The right gloves can keep that from happening because the padded palms absorb the vibration and keep it from running through your hands. This can help your comfort and lengthen the amount of time you can ride as well.
Reason#7: They connect your clothing
Good snow mobile gloves don’t stop at the wrist. They have a sleeve that runs past that point, up into your jacket. This connects your riding clothes and allows you to prevent snow and ice from getting into other areas as well.
Reason#8: They adjust
One time you ride, you might wear a long sleeved t-shirt under your gear. Another time, a sweatshirt. You should be thankful that your good gloves allow you adjustments based on what you are wearing. You can tighten them when you have on less and wear them looser when you have on something thicker.
Reason#9: All around safety
When you ride, fun is one of your top priorities, but safety should be hanging around the top of the list too. The right snow mobile riding gloves can give you safety in a number of ways.
Gloves keep your hands warm, but they can also give you better grip on the bars of your vehicle. Grip is very important to the quality and safety of your ride.
Snow mobile gloves may not be something that you think about on a daily basis. But when you are taking time out to be thankful for things, think of the many different ways your gloves benefit your riding life.
