Customer Reviews

best glove around (Review by JD)

For cold weather mixed climbing or backcountry skiing, this has become my go-to glove. It breathes well enough to stay dry, and if it gets wet is quick and easy to dry. For a glove this warm, it has great dexterity and flexibility for gripping tools.

Love these (Review by Kent)

Fits like a glove, haha! Seriously, if you are on the move, even if it is -25c, this glove will keep you warm and dry. If you start to overheat, remove the waterproof/windproff shell and keep ascending with the liner. There is even a heatpack pocket on the back of the liners. Time will tell about durability, but seems solid for now. I don't think this glove will keep you warm if you are standing still and there is no sun, but for mountain ascent or descent, perfect glove with a lot of dexterity.

I love these things! (Review by Rob)

I've had a pair of these for close to 10 years now. They are unbeatable as far as gloves go. Warm, waterproof and the inner acts as its own glove when you need your fine motor skills. The wrist strap keeps the rest right with you so you won't drop it. If you're looking at them, get them, you won't be let down.
