Just your casual everyday mountaineering glove.
When boot-packing chutes and repelling couloirs in the Wasatch or the Sawtooths, having a lightweight mountaineering glove for the way up is critical for handling gear such as ropes and carabiners. The North Face's Summit G5 Proprius Glove is perfect for those backyard expeditions. The 5 Dimensional Fit and Radiametric Articulation advanced technology focuses on mirroring the hand's motions and position for the perfect fit to maintain blood circulation and managing warmth. Reinforced with KEVLAR stitching throughout the glove to increase durability for high-usage wear and equipped with a stashable over-mitten for colder temperatures and the less-strenuous descent.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are good gloves that do what they are made to do. I used mine for mixed scrambles, road biking, and x-country skiing They are thin enough to prevent your hands from getting too hot during a rigorous activity. However this thinness comes at a cost when resting sometimes your hands will get cold.
-Over-mitt is great for extra warmth
- Not restricting
- Can feel rock well during scrambles.
-Sometimes not warm enough (ie. when using mid dagger for a long climb, resting in temps less than 10 degrees)
-The textures grip on the over-mitt peels off after moderate use
Overall all decent gloves that can take a good amount of abuse.
