Marmot designed the Ultimate Ski Glove for the most epic of ski days, from days where the falling snow blocks all visibility to freezing cold bluebird days. Your hands will stay comfortable all day with a waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex insert keeping them dry, and Primaloft Gold insulation keeping them warm, even if you manage to get snow past the drawcord cuff. Constructed to stand up to professional-level use, the face fabric is reinforced with cowhide leather in the most vulnerable areas. Marmot included a DriClime lining to wick sweat away from your palms while you give yourself a pep talk at the top of that 50-degree couloir.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I ski patrolled in these gloves for 18 years, no kidding, no lie, no exaggeration. 18 years. I bought them full price $175 in 2000. The construction, materials and durability are off the charts. I put these gloves thru everything imaginable. From using torches on frozen snow-making machines, to drilling holes in ice for slalom flags, to strapping patients to backboards. I've climbed lift towers in these gloves. They are, without question, the single most durable piece of equipment that I have ever used. Earlier this season, the thumb finally blew out. I sent them to Marmot and they sent me a new pair in two weeks. So, yeah, 18 years from now I'll be writing another review about how freakin great these gloves are. If you are concerned about the high cost, $175 / 18 = $9.72 a year for warm, dry, hands. Bravo Marmot!!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have used this glove about 10 times now and I am very impressed so far. I tend to have very cold hands and the first day out with the new gloves was a beautiful but cold (for the PNW anyway) day 15 degrees. I threw a pair of hand warmers in the gloves skied all day and never once got cold hands. Since then I have used them on warm wet days and even for throwing snowballs at the kids and my hands have stayed nice and toasty and more importantly nice and dry. One thing to keep in mind is that they are leather so they will feel a bit stiff the first few times you wear them but they seemed to loosen up nicely after a few uses.
So far best pair of ski gloves I have owed, I think I"ll be getting another pair for the wife.
