Visa's payment gloves will enable those traveling to South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics make seamless payments, while remaining protected against the harsh winter winds.

The gloves contain tap-to-pay technology, meaning that items can be purchased by the simple swipe of one's palm. The gloves will come loaded with prepaid values equivalent to $27 to $45, to encourage consumers to shop while traveling abroad in Pyeongchang for the games. In addition to its practicality, the gloves' cozy interior will ensure the optimal warmth of the wearer as the temperatures dip below freezing.

Visa is also offering four celebratory lapel pins that feature the same tap-to-pay technology, posing as an unobtrusive and seamless method of payment.
