whats not to love

    so you've read all the other reviews by now, so have I, they worked, i bought, wife used, she loved, nuff said.

    Great Product, As Usual

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are great gloves for moderate output activities in moderately cold weather. They aren't their thinnest glove, so I prefer these for light hiking, driving, walking to work, etc. For running, I personally prefer a thinner glove. Love that you can clip them together so you don't lose them and they are small enough to bring anywhere. Get em for the whole family!

    Not a big glove kinda guy!

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

    Not a big fan of gloves. Read the reviews and thought I'd try them. I am glad I did..The fit is perfect and I don't feel uncomfortable when I have them on. They are light weight but not as light as, say liners. They are a stand a lone glove.

    sweet nice fit

      Perfect fit can wait for the cold to arrive. They are not heavy duty but I bought them for driving.

      Great glove liner

        Warm, and cozy fit. Just the right amount of 'extra' on those extra cold days.

        Great glove liner

        Comfortable reliable gloves for guides!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs large

        Is very comfortable. Good for most mild to moderate conditions. Great in between glove. Used for Trekking & backcountry skiing.

        Solid addition to the gear arsenal

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        Was looking to add a pair of reasonably priced gloves for winter time and decided on these. Great by itself but on a super cold day these probably wouldn't be sufficient. Would make a great under layer for some heavier gloves if they had room to spare. I love the pads on the inner palm which work great for poles. I use them when I walk my dog and I find the pad handy as well. Nice pair of reasonably priced gloves!!!

        Nice pair of gloves

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: S

        Nice pair of gloves...thought it might be running big but it's not..

        Needs work

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: Large

        Fully revising my review. These gloves, though large (and I have small hands) just barely fit. Figured that sending back for the next largest pair wouldn't be worth it, but on first, lightweight (barely) use camping for a week - both gloves are splitting seams in the same place, glove center so I'll be returning. They do not stretch tightly, forcing a split - I didn't use them for anything serious, just sitting around, so hopefully BC will be cool w/ the swap...we'll see.

        Solid glove

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: xl

        Fits well and is comfortable. Good for most mild to moderate conditions, but for really cold weather would need something heavier. Used for X-country skiing and worked well.

        NIce Gloves

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: True to size

        I lIked the feel ando style of gloves but color I wanted was darker than what picure showed

        Great lightweight gloves

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        These are a lot warmer than you'd expect when pulling them on - really comfortable fabric and cut as well. Don't need much more than these for most active winter days unless it's really wet.

        one of my standard choices

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        A lighter weight option, great wind resistance. Enough warmth to get through most days, but need something heavier on the really cold days. Anything below 20degrees, I find these to be a bit light, but otherwise, things are great.

        Are you using these as a liner? It is 10 degrees here and need something for my motorcycle.

        I typically use these as a stand alone. Depending on your tastes, you may want to look at something a little heavier.

        Great gloves...thin and works well

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        These gloves are great....my 2nd pair...i love how thin they are...alot of gloves you have to take off to be able to grasp things....these have great dexterity.....and still are quite warm and wind resistant

        These are decent gloves

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        These are nice fitting gloves, however they are not very warm and are not water proof. You could use these gloves and do thing with them do to the tight fitting.

        They fit extremely well on big hands

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        I use them a lot, they are good for driving and in cold weather temps from 10 degrees and above

        Great fit - Good function

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        I've only had these out about ten times but enough to form an opinion. First, the fit for me is right on the money. I was looking for something low profile that I could use with my poles that would provide good wind resistance while providing some warmth. These do the trick perfectly. I also don't like having to remove my gloves to do simple chores around camp and I've found these to serve that purpose well.



        Because of their design they can also work under heavier gloves and have proven to be relatively weather resistant. They're not waterproof though so keep that in mind.



        While there is an extra piece of material sewn in between the thumb and forefinger, a heavy use area for poles, I did notice some pilling almost immediately on the little finger. Not sure about the long-term durability with these but I've had good luck with TNF in the past.



        I also appreciate the very small and inconspicuous buckle that allows you to snap the two gloves together when not in use.



        If you can grab these on one of Backcountry's great sales I'd say these gloves are a winner.

        Are these waterproof?

        John,

        This is definitely not a waterproof glove. However, they will be relatively water resistant and very wind resistant thanks to their Polartec Power Stretch shell.

        Great gloves!!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size

        I use these gloves on cold days for everyday use and they have stood up to the challenge. They are lightweight, good fitting and surprisingly warm. I use them also as a mitten liner so I like a tight fit and these are perfect for that. My only complaint is the dexterity of the glove isn't the best, but the glove wasn't designed with grip in mind. Overall, great gloves!!!

        Perfect fit

          Normally I have problem to get gloves that fits my hand (S) but these gloves fits me perfect. They are very comfortable and warm, not too thin as I was expecting, so far my only complaint or improvemet could be add some grip.
