I was looking for a glove that would provide protection from cold and wind and still allow enough feel and dexterity for climbing. I used them on the grand teton in the fall and they fit the bill perfectly.
If you are looking for a durable, light weight pair of gloves that allow you to work with your hands, these are the ones. Construction seems real solid. Sizing is spot-on. These are form fitting and would not hinder much dexterity. Leather on the palms and fingers is great. Can't say these are super warm, however. Intended use would be in temps that are 35 and above. All around very good glove. I just needed something warmer so sent these back. Really wanted to keep them though!
I had been searching for a cold weather glove that I could wear around camp that featured leather palms and after a lot of buying and returning I settled on these, and I do mean settled. The warmth is nothing to write home about, the palms are very nice however a large part of the stitching is on exterior of the glove, in the palm, and promptly melted when I grabbed a hot pot off the fire. For me, the fingers seem a bit long (which I realize is subject to change based on the individual), and the soft back may as well be a hard shell for how little it stretches. A good glove? For some maybe... for me it falls short of my needs.
"They do the job, but make some compromises"
These gloves represent a good compromise of warmth, windproof, water resistant, and good dexterity. They are great for every day wear, even down into the 30s. If it were significantly colder or long exposure, I'd want something warmerI haven't tested the water resistance. The goat skin palm is a great feature. The "not so good": The inner seams on these gloves are bulky. I've become used to them, but they definitely rubbed at the beginning. They also make it difficult to get a good grip at the finger tips. The ends of the gloves are always in my way when I do zippers or the clasp on my dog leash. In the end, they meet my needs but I'm not in love with them.
Great product. Not too bulky but still warm. Allows you to do things with gloves on that you would normally have to take them off for. Great material and stiching doesn't get in the way. Nothing worse than a bad seam.
"Awesome Gloves, Just what i was looking for!"
Got these about a week ago and got them just in time due to the snow factor. 1st time i've ordered a pair of quality gloves with a price like this and they are totally worth it. Other cheap gloves rip and don't hold out water for long. These gloves for the week that i've had them have been through some tough times and they still look new. Awesome buy.
I use these for caving, so they get abused. Great for while I'm on rope or climbing up the jagged rocks. I used them digging out rocks in a clogged passage. Also they are great for cooler weather, they keep my hands nice and toasty! So far they are showing a little bit of wear but nothing too bad. Worst damage was from barbed wire fence, punched small hole in them. All around a good glove though, I'll buy another pair when these ones wear out!!
