Bliss products incorporate high performance waterproof breathable membranes like Gore-Texâ„¢, lofty insulation from PrimaLoftâ„¢ and exceptional leather from PittardsÂ®. Bliss designs are specifically geared toward women's anatomical differences, their need for warmth and their eye for style.

Bliss products will be on display at the SIA Trade Show in Las Vegas in January 2008. The Bliss collection will be available at retail in Fall 2008.

The BLISS line sets warmth as its primary objective. BLISS is warmer, dryer, and softer than any other gloves on the market. We've tailored our gloves with women's specific fit for improved comfort and circulation, performance fabrics for the most breathable waterproofing and the warmest and lightest insulation.
