6designs aligns old world craftsmanship with new world design and development mechanisms. Our origin and heritage is in the glove trade and that continues today, with absolute focus on the hand-wear and hand-protection segments.

We act as a true partner with our clients, bringing them the latest in technological material and manufacturing application advancements and collaboratively designing, developing and executing from initial stages to complete finished goods manufacturing. The antiquated segmented models of the past, where client, manufacturer and end-user are all separate stand-alone entities is over. 6designs is your partner from concept to completion, while always maintaining our 3 founding principles. Fit. Form. Function.

CLIMAX™ is a high-temperature heat shield formed of silica aerogel impregnated into a glass-fibre mat. The silica aerogel commands among the lowest thermal conductivity of any material. CLIMAX does not burn or char, yet is hydrophobic, breathable, flexible, washable, environmentally safe and easy-to-use.

The OutDry® patented construction process creates a one-piece waterproof breathable barrier, leaving no space between the membrane and the upper/outer shell for water to get in. OutDry® improves fit and dexterity, keeping you drier, lighter and more comfortable.

Alycore™ is comprised of micro denier iron and carbon-based proprietary Alycore™ threads, providing the ultimate protection against cuts, punctures and needle stabs, while still maintaining high dexterity and fluid palm flexibility.

C-Zip™ is a patent pending glove construction advancement that provides complete warmth and insulation while also allowing for full access to your hands, without the removal of the glove. A zipper runs across the top of the gloves, just behind the knuckles, so you can easily slip your hands out. C-Zip™ prevents glove loss, allows access to your electronics, ventilation on warmer days and quick interior drying.
