Rush SV Glove

In double-digit mile per hour winds and snow dropping out of the sky so fast you can hardly see your tracks two feet behind you, Arc’teryx makes Rush SV Gloves you can trust. Breathable N70p 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric acts as the main buffer between the back of your hands and the worst of the elements in the alpine. A rugged leather adds another durable layer of protection over the fingers and palms that also provide an adhesive-like grip to your poles. The finger’s unique design technology, consisting of three panels of fabric sewn together in an anatomical fit for each digit, endow the glove with the utmost dexterous range of motion. The Rush SV’s removable Polartec liner is a high performance fleece with durable quality so you can keep going back for more turns every time you put them on.

  • Rugged winter gloves designed for harsh conditions
  • Waterproof Gore-Tex protects against the elements
  • Removable fleece liner keeps hands warm
  • Leather overlay boosts durability and improves grip
  • Paneled finger construction gives anatomical fit
  • Wide gauntlet lies over jacket for secure seal
  • Removable wrist leashes

Need major improvement. Not the best.

I was so excited for these gloves. I've been in search of the perfect pair of gloves and have purchased every brand imaginable. I wanted to own the very best, the holy grail of gloves, and these are not even close to the very best.
Some background: I grew up in a ski town, my father was an instructor who relied on gloves for his daily job, and I got my glove obsession from him. Presently, the fashion trend leans toward cheap, beat-up gloves that are waterproofed with some kind of wax. It looks cool, but it creates two problems. First, the gloves themselves tend to suck. They aren't ergonomic. Second, the wax gets all over your expensive shell and ruins the DWR coating; I own a pair of expensive gore-tex pants that suck up water on my lap like a towel - they wet out instantly thanks to the waterproofing wax from some older Hestra gloves.
With all of this in mind (and a brand new pair of pants) I was super excited for the Rush SV gloves. Ergonomic, gore-tex, no goop needed to waterproof them. I've used them 30+ days this winter and I can't recommend them to anyone, especially not at this price.
First - they aren't warm. I do not suffer from cold hands but these gloves can't handle 20 degrees or lower (which is most of our ski conditions on the East Coast). Second, they don't breath well - my hands sweat in them, which exacerbates the challenge with their warmth. Third, the welded seam in the liner between the fingers creates a tiny plastic bead that is uncomfortable - I had to take a hammer to them to break them up. And lastly - the wrist tension strap is a joke. It is made of an elastic that will wear out in a few seasons, and doesn't stay locked. I have to re-tighten it every run.
Ah - and one more thing... unlike most ski gloves, you can't clip your gloves together and hang them somewhere off your body.
I upgraded the Rush SV's with a spare pair of Hestra liners and that made them warmer. I now use a thin merino wool liner with them and that also helped. On wet days they do well - but when I compare them to gore-tex Hestras (which don't need the waterproofing wax, are ergonomic, warm, and have a good strap) the Arcteryx Rush SV's finish a distant second, at more than twice the price.
I wanted to love these and on paper they have everything going for them - but at the end of the day these are cold, expensive gloves that don't cut it on the hill. Don't buy em.

The Best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The best alpine backcountry gloves you can buy. Full goretex throughout: the leather on the fingers is over a complete seam sealed goretex layer, unlike anything else on the market. Many competitors have one layer leather on the fingers with fabric on the back, which is cheaper construction and not waterproof or breathable. Stitching is excellent, no extra material, and best of all it’s a shell design with removable liner. You can vary the liner based on conditions and swap out instantly if you get sweaty, or put in a warmer liner if you stop moving. Plenty warm for me, and I use them down to -20 C Heli and backcountry skiing. Weatherproof, versatile, top quality.

Best ski gloves I have ever owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have just bought my second pair of Rush SVs used for skiing, the first pair having served me for 5 years and 10 winters with over c60 days on snow pa. They are eye wateringly high priced. However, for the money they are the most waterproof and most hardwearing gloves I have found to date from all the major brands (which from experience typically last no more than two years before needing replacement).

Based in Australia, I'm lucky to score two winters each year under very different condtions: one in Australia where we have relatively warm (rarely below -5 C) but often wet/rainy skiing and the Rush SVs have never failed to keep my dry and on the hill when everyone else had headed for home. And one in the Northern Hemisphere, chasing pow in either Japan or North America (typically much, much colder and drier). The only minor negative is, as many other users have reported, they are not the warmest of gloves: around -12C I find they need an additional (silk) liner to keep toasty.

Good quality

    Well constructed, but not the warmest glove. Seems to run a bit large in sizing.

    Poorly Constructed

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Gloves are ill-shaped, poorly constructed, and overpriced.

    I purchased these and returned them almost immediately. The elastic drawstring plastic retainer needed to be repaired on mountain. While repairable extremely inconvenient. The liners fit well however the shell is not in well proportion and had extra room in the finger where the liner didn't. As stated by the other reviewer, these gloves are not very warm, especially not with the supposed SV: Severe weather claim.

    I don't feel they had a great grip either.
