A women's specific winter glove for non-gender-specific crushing.
The Arc'teryx Women's Beta AR Glove is a multi-sport waterproof glove for climbing, skiing/snowboarding, and general cold-weather use. The Beta AR was designed to keep you bone-dry with its waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex Pro membrane, tightly-woven the proprietary N80p-X shell fabric, DWR finish, and fully taped seams. Functionality is given a boost with the supple Lezanova goat leather overlay on the palm and tops of fingers, because it's highly breathable, washable, and doesn't require special leather treatment. Elastic at inside wrist snugs the glove against your hand without requiring adjustment, and the short gauntlet length lets you wear it over or under your jacket cuff so the white stuff stays out. A removable wrist leash allows you pull off the glove without worrying about dropping it.
Dexterity was also on the mind of Arc'teryx designers with this glove, so you wouldn't have to pull off the glove every time a buckle or a zipper needs a bit of adjustment. Tri-Dex construction patterns each finger individually for exceptional precision, and smooth, seam-free fingertips let you pick things up without seams getting in the way. The removable liner features a thinner fabric on the palm, you'll be able to put your gear to rights without exposing your fingers to the cold. The liner is made with premium high-loft Polartec Wind Pro on the back and lighter-weight Polartec Thermal on the palm side to balance warmth with maximum dexterity.

I searched long and hard for a glove that was waterproof on the outside (not just a membrane on the inside) and a full leather palm, and these are the gloves! :) I actually use them winter rafting. They've got great dexterity for rigging and using my hands, and they are perfect for rowing. They stayed pretty much dry, but on a month long trip last year, the leather stayed soaking wet for like 2 weeks and it soaked through. (But that's understandable). These gloves obviously aren't as warm as mittens, but they did keep my hands pretty darn warm, and when they didn't, I just threw a heat pack in the glove on the back of my hand and it stayed in place. Love these gloves!
