A+ ski touring glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These gloves are great for wearing on the way up as well as the way down. Contrary to the previous reviewer, I found these WARMER than I expected them to be by looking at the picture and reading the description. These gloves are very lightly insulated, with a breathable back and a full leather palm. This palm prevents damage from poling on a steep skin track or boot pack, and is going to make these gloves last longer than others.

The brethability is good on the way up, and if it is a sunny day I don't even take them off to transition and ski down. If that doesn't show you how well these things manage moisture I don't know what will!

A little too chilly

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these for my husband, he says "These are too cold to do what I wanted them to do. I mostly wanted to use them for touring, they are fine if the sun is out but I try to start before it rises and my hands are freezing. They might come into their own during spring touring, we will see. Mostly right now I just use them for driving to work. I would be interested to see what the softshell heavyweight are like, I imagine they would be more functional as a touring glove."
