Staying warm is important in the backcountry, but, while you're working up the skin track, staying cool is just as important. The lightweight Marmot Women's Evolution Glove features WindStopper fabric that blocks the wind, enables great breathability, and prevents clamminess that freezes when you transition into downhill mode.

  • Marmot M1 softshell fabric stretches, breathes, and provides durable dexterity during tours, hikes, and cold-weather camping
  • WindStopper technology stops the wind in its tracks so your fingers stay warm as you cut trail up the exposed ridge
  • Lightweight design cuts down on bulk so you can use the Evolution as a liner glove in a larger shell glove or mitten
  • Leather-reinforced Falcon Grip palm grip helps you hang onto your ski pole and enhances durability
  • Soft fabric helps when your nose starts to run
  • Stretchy seam on cuffs keeps out blowing snow and cold

She loves them.

My mother-in-law took these to Alaska with her on a cruise. She traversed glaciers without her hands ever getting cold.

Lightweight and comfortable gloves

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought these as a gift for a family member to wear especially in the spring and fall. The fit is perfect and they are not bulky. Slight stretch allows for ease of movement. So glad I bought a pair for myself too!

Great Casual Gloves

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My sister picked up a pair of these recently and loves them. They provide great comfort and dexterity for her intended casual use.

Warm and Functional

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was looking for an affordable basic liner I could wear under my Hestra Fall Line Mittens for skiing, or as a standalone glove for brisk hikes and scraping ice off of my car in the mornings. I feel that most glove liners are made the same, so I was having a hard time knowing what a good choice would be. I decided to go with the Marmot Evolution gloves and I'm really pleased with them!

They are form fitting without being restricting, and my smaller than average hands fit great inside of them -- no gaps in the fingertips whatsoever. I like the grips on the fingertips and palm as well. Plus they are a great liner for my Hestras! Not restricting or hard to put on when the Evolutions on. .

I wore these hiking back down Mount Olympus last week when the sun started to go down and a chill was setting in, and my hands were toasty warm and dry even when snow got on them. I was so warm in fact, I had to take the liners off! I also have poor circulation for someone my age (23 yrs) and these really help my hands tolerate cold conditions. Every so often my fingertips will get cold after say, scraping ice off my car in the mornings -- but I attribute that to bad circulation and wearing them as a standalone glove most of the time. I would also say these are more wind resistant than insulating if you wear them alone.

Overall a solid liner that will fit under most any mitten or glove!

A must have

Perfect fit, perfect comfort and flexibility. Can use alone or with other gloves. Awesome design

It's like a windbreaker for your hands

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

Bought these for my girl because her hands are always cold. We spent a couple days in high altitude with 10 degree temps and she was warmer than I was with my cold weather running gloves. The gloves are son thins it's a no brainer for active people outside. Throw on a pair of mittens or gloves on top to stay warm while you're skiing or backpacking and keep the evolution gloves on when you need nimble fingers for opening a can or tying your boots up and you don't want bare hands. All in all, she is super happy with them and actually enjoys being outside now that her hands don't freeze so easily. To summarize, it's like a windbreaker for your hands. Light, thin but warm and windproof just as the label says.

Awesome gloves!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Received these as a Christmas gift and they've turned out to be my favorite! Intended to wear these hiking but so far they've been amazing as running gloves. Can't feel the cold/wind and they're so lightweight! Also the rain just rolls right off them--they're amazing!

Excelent Item

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Warm, light, and practical

Are these useable with touchscreen phones? Always a nice feature when the temperature is low...

No, these won't work with a touch screen. Check out the Marmot Women's Connect Softshell glove for a similar weight of glove that will work with touchscreens.

Mom Loves 'em!

  • Fit: True to size

My mother is probably one of the biggest hippies I know and never buys herself new things. She had an old pair of windproofed gloves that I swear were older than myself. Luckily for her I hooked her up with a pair of these for Christmas, and now she is running in style with toasty hands at that! No more looking like she ran right out of a time machine from the 80s! I got her a medium and she says they fit true to size.

Great for shoulder season

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have to confess - my girlfriend often can't find her Evolution gloves and it's often because I've stolen them.

These gloves are ideal for running, biking and hiking in fall and spring weather (anything down to 25ish degrees out) and for skinning in warmer winter conditions. They cut the wind and provide enough protection against rain to keep fingers and hands warm.They're still small and light enough to easily stuff into a pocket. After a few years of use they're starting to show a little wear, but I anticipate them lasting for at least another year or two.

All in all, great lightweight gloves.

Although I'm part of a GORE product testing program, I did not get these gloves as part of it.
