MANZELLA WINTER LINE PROVIDES WARM, DRY HANDS

04/24/2009

Built around the passionate pursuit of your favorite activities and your personal warmth preference.

Buffalo, NY (January 16, 2009) — The Manzella 2009 Winter line provides warmth perfectly suited to your unique preference, whether you need a warm glove for vigorous activities or the warmest glove for a day in extreme cold. Every pair of Manzella gloves is designed for a specific fit and function, providing you with the comfort you need for every end-use and are made with abrasion-resistant materials at key stress points for maximum durability. Our Winter line is built around warmth, comfort, durability and the passionate pursuit of your favorite activities.

Manzella also revolutionized multi-purpose outdoor gloves for women by making gloves that fit the specific dimensions of a women’s hand. Through extensive studies of the physiology of a woman’s hand, Manzella recognized significant differences from a man’s hand, including: a greater drop in pinky length; more slender fingers than men; and narrower hands and wrists. Manzella’s women’s silhouettes are engineered to reflect these differences.

The GoreTex Fahrenheit 5, available in both men’s and women’s sizing, features a GoreTex membrane and combines woven stretch with a 2-ply microfiber providing the comfort of a softshell and the durability of a hardshell. The combination of 200-gram synthetic down insulation and a moisture-managing brushed tricot lining will provide the end-user warm, dry hands. The GoreTex Fahrenheit 5 also features a water-resistant digital synthetic leather palm that provides superior grip and durability. GoreTex Fahrenheit 5 has a manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP) of $60 and is categorized as “Warmest” in the Manzella Glove Selection System.

Manzella has spent over 25 years learning how to design, merchandise, and sell best-of-class gloves with the highest perceived value. Manzella understands what users want in each market and develop gloves to meet each end user’s unique needs. Manzella supports their development with The Manzella Glove Selection System, a selection system that makes it easy for customers to find and purchase what gloves they want. Manzella develops gloves for outdoor, snowsport, running, archery, hunting, recreation/work wear, and casual market segments. Manzella is located in Buffalo, New York. Visit www.manzella.com.
