GLOVES...IN THE DESERT?!?
This may seem surprising, and yet these gloves come in very useful when trekking in the desert! Indeed, these anti-UV gloves reduce the risk of skin damage associated with the desert sun (burns, appearance of brown spots, etc.) What's more, gloves don't necessarily mean more warmth: the fabric of the DESERT 500 gloves is lightweight and breathable, giving you the UV protection you need without the heat!

UV PROTECTION: WHAT DOES UPF 50 MEAN?
The UPF index (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) corresponds to tests carried out on fabric by a spectrophotometer. A UPF 50 rating means that the fabric only lets 1/50th of the UV light through. This is one of the best available protection ratings against the sun's rays.

TOUCHSCREEN COMPATIBLE ON THE THUMB AND INDEX FINGER
The black print on the thumb and index finger contains conductive particles so you can use your touchscreens (smartphone, camera, tablet, etc.) without removing your gloves!
