Seirus 2013 Holiday Gifts for Skiers & Snowboarders: The Coolest, Warmest Accessories
- No White Elephants Here: New Seirus High-Tech HeatWave & Next Generation Gore Windstopper Gloves & Mitts
San Diego – Even Scrooge appreciates holiday gifts that wrap him up in warm, dry comfort. So Scrooge and everyone else on your list that skis or snowboards will love unwrapping the cold-weatheressentials from Seirus Innovation. For 30 years Seirus has set the industry standards for technologically advanced winter gloves, liners, head and face protection, hats and essential equipment, as seen in its:
- New “HeatWave” glove
- New “Next Generation” Windstopper glove
- New “Quick Combo” hat with built-in scarf & facemask
- New “JR Headzo Wild” fun hat & neck-up combo
Seirus also has new models of its already popular “SoundTouch” touchscreen gloves, “All Weather” waterproof gloves, and ultra-light “DynaMAX” line. Entering its second season, Seirus “HeatTouch” gloves and mitts with instant, push-button heat continue to be all the rage both on and off the mountain. All of these items are detailed below and are available at America’s leading sporting goods stores and via Seirus.com.
Seirus HeatWave Gloves & Mitts – Brand New for 2013-14
Seirus HeatWave Zenith, Heather-Char colorway ($49.99 MSRP)
Over a dozen models of new HeatWave gloves and mitts utilize Seirus’ Dual Stage Heating System: First, Seirus’ proprietary, engineered Reflective HeatWave lining retains 20% more warmth inside the glove than traditional linings. Then, kinetic energy created by body movement amplifies the reflected heat 4 to 5 degrees. It’s a whole new level in warmth for a non-battery-heated glove. HeatWave models come in lofted insulation styles and Seirus’ top selling All Weather, FormFit designs, which deliver a “light as a feather,” second-skin-like fit and feel. Some models also include SoundTouch touchscreen capabilities ($19.99 – $119.99 MSRP).
Seirus Next Generation Gore Windstopper Gloves – Brand New for 2013-14
Seirus Next Generation Gore Windstopper Oz, Black-Black colorway ($39.99 MSRP)
Seirus has pulled off a significant coup by being first-to-market with W.L. Gore & Associates’ new Windstopper technology, which combines Gore’s new, revolutionary, internal seam construction with Gore’s acclaimed Windstopper membrane. The result is an incredibly smooth, plush, comfortable and quiet fabrication – an immediately-noticeable, dramatic improvement over all other Windstopper gloves. Seirus’ five new models of this next generation Windstopper glove are all water-resistant with maximum breathability. When this technology is combined with Seirus’ softshell, deerskin, goatskin or leather outer shells, and technical fleece linings, it creates a new comfort and performance standard for outdoor enthusiasts. Several models are also available with SoundTouch touchscreen technology ($39.99 – $84.99 MSRP).
Quick Clava Hats – Brand New “Quick Combo” and Expanded “Quick Clavas” for 2013-14
Seirus has again redefined snow sports headwear with the introduction of its patented “Quick Combo” hats in five styles, all with built-in, pull-down DynaMAX scarves and WeatherShield facemasks that warm and protect the neck, face and ears. The pull-down scarves and facemasks can easily and quickly be utilized to buffet frigid wind blasts –or neatly disappear up inside the hat until needed. The pull-down option makes each Quick Combo hat a “three-in-one” hat offering: 1) full neck, facemask and head protection, 2) a hat with a neckup, or 3) simply a hat alone. Seirus has also expanded its line of patented “Quick Clavas” with built-in, pull-down fleece balaclavas for adults and juniors. Seirus also offers “Quick Draws” with built-in, pull-down face scarves. All styles are also available as hats only, without pull down versions ($19.99-$49.99 MSRP).
Seirus HeatTouch Gloves & Mitts – Hugely Popular Launch in 2012-13
Seirus HeatTouch “Inferno” ($374.99 MSRP)
Seirus’ HeatTouch “Push Button Warmth” technology was launched with great success for winter season 2012-13. Demand continues to build for HeatTouch rechargeable heated gloves and mitts because they present the easiest, most dependable way to stay out, stay warm and stay happy on the slopes. For up to six hours, wafer-thin batteries power Seirus’ exclusive “Flexible Fusion” heat panels. HeatTouch gloves provide heat that radiates over the entire glove back and wraps around to the fingers, for toasty warmth and comfort on even the most bitter, icy days. The heat is activated by an Illuminated button without removing the gloves or mitts. There are five HeatTouch models, each with three heat settings: low (green/up to six hours), medium (yellow/up to three hours) or high (red/up to two hours) heat ($199.99 – $374.99 MSRP).

Seirus SoundTouch Gloves – Expanded for 2013-14
Seirus SoundTouch Hyperlite All Weather Black colorway ($34.99 MSRP)
Seirus’ groundbreaking SoundTouch touchscreen compatible glove line was launched in 2011, expanded in 2012, and taken to the next level in 2013-14 with several new models. Seirus’ patent pending SoundTouch technology uniquely allows connectivity to pass from finger to touchscreen, even through full insulation and a 100 percent waterproof/breathable membrane. This innovation creates warm, dry and comfortable gloves with dexterity that operate smartphones, digital music players, cameras and other touchscreen gadgets ($19.99-$84.99 MSRP).

For the kids: Fun JR HEADZO WILD hats – Brand New for 2013-14
Seirus JR Headzo Wild Dragon ($34.99 MSRP)
The more fun that parents make it for their kids to be out in the snow, the more the kids will be off-line, off the couch and outside, being active and learning lifelong, positive winter activities.

Seirus All Weather & Xtreme All Weather Gloves & Mitts – Expanded for 2013-14
Perpetually among the best selling gloves in snow sports, Seirus All Weather and Xtreme All Weather gloves are the warmest, driest, most comfortable lightweight gloves ever.
