WindFoil™ combines the insulative benefits of a polyester micro-fleece liner with a smooth, highly water resistant, softshell exterior. A totally windproof, yet highly breathable membrane is sandwiched between the inner and outer fabrics providing effective protection in cold, dry conditions.
  • Composition: 100% polyester with PU membrane.
  • 100% windproof.
  • Durable water-repellent (DWR) finish on face fabric.
  • Breathability: 4000gm per sq.m per 24hr.



  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish. 

  • Wash your gloves separately - the synthetic suede can cause havoc staining other clothing.
  • Air dry only - no dryers for these puppies.

    Great winter gloves

    Toasty and warm, well designed but not too bulky, fit really well for a winter glove. When it gets really cold and wet my fingertips could feel the cold a bit but they don't claim to be a waterproof glove so they do exactly what they're designed to. I'd buy them again (if they ever wear out — no sign of that yet).

    Awesome pair of gloves

    Have experience with motorcycle gloves such as alpinestar, klim, held and mechanix. However, these were gloves made for tropical countries and had padded protection. It was my first time buying a winter glove and am happy with the quality of the Chipolatas. The size and fitting is excellent giving your fingers the flexibility they need when gripping. There are no gaps at the tip of your fingers. The gauntlet wrist cuff design is also excellent as it is wide enough to accommodate wrists with watches on it. Lastly, the thermal protection is good. You dont get numb fingers anymore! Have a feeling this pair of gloves will last a long time, which is nice ;D
