Mountain Hardwear Power Stretch Gloves are lightweight liner gloves that work well under thick mountaineering mitts or by themselves on a cool weather trail run.

Fav Piece

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was at a mountain hardwear clinic once and the rep asked me my all time favorite Mountain Hardwear piece and it is this glove. Kind of odd to pick a liner out of all the sweet items I love and own from MNT Hardwear (ghostwhisperer jacket and Direkt 2), but I use this more than any other piece in the fall and winter. I've used them to lead ice, line my mittens during winter camping, mountaineering base camp, CC ski, running, ridge scrambling. So many things. I love the snug wrists and how plain and simple it is. No bells and whistles, just a straight up and simple liner. The one draw back is that you can't use your smart phone with them on, so use your nose or put your phone away! :)

Horrible Logo Placement

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The gloves are great - truly designed for the purpose. That said, why in the world would you stitch this dense of a logo RIGHT ON TOP OF YOUR KNUCKLE? It's not an issue if you don't wear over-gloves (shell). If you put on a shell glove, the logo pushes into your knuckle when you bend your fingers (i.e. being "active"). This issue is much worse when pairing with a Mountain Hardwear shell, because those shells also put the same logo in the same spot, further putting pressure on your knuckle. Great product ruined by logo placement. If the logo was just a sticker of sorts, it'd be fine - but the fact it's a thick, stitched logo, makes it worse.

Durable and Warm for the Weight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These have been my go-to gloves for everything from wearing around town to frigid runs to nordic skiing. The fit is true (I got a small and it's just a titch long in the fingers, but I do have very short digits).

They've held up well over the past season's use and are looking good for many more.

Definitely a need

Perfect for not too cold days, or that morning when you start off and still need to warm up on the mountains. I love it!

Great lightweight gloves

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super happy with these gloves. They fit great, they are fairly warm (I use them for hiking and snowshoeing). They stick to velcro more than I'd like, so be aware of that. They also don't work with touchscreen phones, so be aware of that as well. Great gloves.

Bought Them For Driving

    I was looking for a pair of gloves for drive and to wear around casually and these work well for that. The fabric's a little thicker than I would have expected but it's not a big deal.
