Keep contact - without losing precious heat - with the waterproof, windproof, dexterous glove choice for alpine climbers. The Direct Contact Gloves allows extreme tactility and control over tools and ropes without sacrificing warmth, by using a combination of EnduraLoft® back-of-hand insulation, a durable and heat-trapping leather palm, and a stormproof Ventia™ shell to ward off weather. A carabiner loop, pull-on entry loop, and glove clip make it easy to store and stash gloves, while a hook and loop wrist closure with undercuff construction keeps wrist opening securely shut under layers to retain maximum warmth. Breathable and wicking, the Direct Contact Gloves are built to accompany adventures from single-pitch cold weather climbing to week-long objectives in the high alpine.

RATING AND REVIEWS

Excellent Gloves

5

These gloves are exactly as advertised. Excellent for cold weather wear, they shed the snow easily and the velcro cuff allows you to make them snug so the snow stays out.

Solid gloves

These gloves have held up well on several hikes so far. Only one hike required the use of my hands,the rest I did with my feet. I originally ordered the small size but found them too tight. I then ordered the medium size and found them just a touch too big. I'm hoping for a smedium size to make this Goldilocks happy.

Upgraded the glove arsenal. I have a similar pair, 5 years old. Fantastic gloves. Great for climbing. Good dexterity while driving. They look good too. You're making a good choice.

Absolutely perfect.

Fit and finish are great. These are high quality gloves with great tactility (is that a word?). So far I've use them on a couple backcountry ski tours and shoveled a bunch of snow and these were perfect. Just enough warmth for high energy cold weather play and they seem like they are going to hold up for a long time.

Awesome warm glove for ice and alpine climbing

been using these gloves ice and alpine climbing in the canadian rockies. They are warm and light, and slim enough to feel comfortable placing screws and gear while climbing.

Killer gloves

After trying out the Illuminator Sensor gloves OR reps recommended this glove due to its increased dexterity. My top needs were waterproof, dexterity, durability and peferably touch screen compatible.. These gloves met 3 of 4 of my needs. I used them in snow and freezing rain in North Carolina this past week. They slayed the weather. I even used them while fly fishing

A lovely glove

I bought these to replace a slightly too-small pair of Afterburner gloves. I was looking for something more waterproof and a bit warmer than my Stormtrackers for use in wet, cold conditions or in snow country. Bullseye. Very comfortable and understated design, an adjustable mini-gaunlet instead of a cuff, nicely dextrous for an insulated-finger glove, and just the skosh more room that I needed. Quite toasty - as advised, their waterproofing comes at the cost of breathability, so I would not use these for high-output activities; your hands will sweat if you do. Fortunately, the liners stay put. Now if I could only figure out what that loop on the back of the middle finger is for...

Perfect, I use this to ride my motorcycle when the weather is down in the teens. wind and water proof help a ton! very durable! I also use them to ride my bicycle since they are very warm, but not restrictive in movement or feeling.
